“No Tears Left to Cry” debuts at No. 5, besting the No. 8 start of “Focus.”
“Cry,” the first taste of new music from Grande since her 2016 album Dangerous Woman, starts at No. 5 with 36.9 million streams earned in the week ending April 26, according to Nielsen Music.
That amount gives the singer her highest-ever debut on the ranking, eclipsing the No. 8 start of “Focus” (Nov. 21, 2015). However, it still has a few positions to go before it becomes her highest-charting track -- that distinction currently goes to “Problem,” featuring Iggy Azalea, which peaked at No. 2 (May 31, 2014) after its initial debut at No. 9.
