Ariana Grande Hits No. 1 On Pop Songs Chart With 'God Is a Woman,' Goes Top 10 With 'Breathin'

Both songs follow first 'Sweetener' No. 1 'No Tears Left to Cry.'

Ariana Grande achieves her fourth No. 1 on Billboard's Pop Songs radio airplay chart, as "God Is a Woman" ascends 2-1 on the survey dated Nov. 10.

Grande concurrently scores her 11th top 10 on the tally, as "Breathin" bounds 12-9. Both songs are from her album Sweetener, which launched at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 dated Sept. 1. In an era in which consumers have greater access to an entire album than ever before, Republic Records is promoting both tracks simultaneously, instead of following a more traditional model of spacing radio singles further apart.

Lead Sweetener single "No Tears Left to Cry" led the Pop Songs chart dated July 21. The set becomes her first to spin off multiple Pop Songs toppers.

Here's a rundown of Grande's four Pop Songs No. 1s:

"Problem" (feat. Iggy Azalea), July 12, 2014, two weeks
"Side to Side" (feat. Nicki Minaj), Dec. 24, 2016, five weeks
"No Tears Left to Cry," July 21, 2018, one week
"God Is a Woman," Nov. 10, 2018, one week to date

The Pop Songs chart (which in 2017 celebrated its 25th anniversary) measures total weekly plays, as tabulated by Nielsen Music, among its reporting panel of 168 mainstream top 40 stations.
