Ariana Grande attends Billboard's 13th Annual Women In Music event at Pier 36 in New York City on on Dec. 6, 2018. 

Ariana Grande is strolling down memory lane all the way to “Honeymoon Avenue!” On Tuesday (Sept. 3), the superstar took to social media to mark the six-year anniversary of her debut studio album Yours Truly.

To commemorate the occasion, Ari shared a photo of the LP’s classic black-and-white cover art on Instagram. “[S]ix years,” she captioned the post, using her signature cloud emoji. “[T]his album has sm of my heart. thankful for all the memories and love.”

The star’s longtime manager Scooter Braun also got in on the lovefest, sharing a throwback video of the moment he told Ari that the album had debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 -- the first debut album by a female artist to accomplish the feat since Kesha’s Animal in January 2010. 

“6 years ago! Wow!” Scooter wrote. “Such a journey since then. Congrats @arianagrande on the multiple historic #1 albums since then. Proud of you as an artists [sp] and as a person. Let’s keep having fun with this music thing.”

Released on Sept. 3, 2013, Yours Truly served as the world’s proper introduction to the pint-sized star with major pipes who, up until then, had only been familiar to tweens as the star of Nickelodeon’s Victorious, its spinoff Sam & Cat and Broadway’s 13.
