"It's a very true story," Njomza says of the Hot 100's current No. 1.
Welcome to the Billboard Chart Beat Podcast, where each week co-hosts Gary Trust and Trevor Anderson, from the Billboard charts department, discuss why what's on the charts … is on the charts, while also looking at current chart action in a historical context for even greater insights.
This week, we recap Ariana Grande's historic week on the Billboard Hot 100, as she becomes the first soloist in the chart's 60-year archives to rank at Nos. 1, 2 and 3 simultaneously, and only the second act overall to triple up at the top, after The Beatles. Grande spends a fourth week at No. 1 with "7 Rings," debuts at No. 2 with "Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I'm Bored" and rebounds 7-3 with former leader "Thank U, Next," the title cut to her new album that concurrently launches at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.
