Over its 20 seasons so far, The Voice has amassed a who’s who of pop superstars for its coaching panel, from Christina Aguilera to Alicia Keys. And for season 21 — which just premiered on Monday and continues Tuesday night (Sept. 21) — the reality singing competition really scored with its newest coach: Ariana Grande.
The consistent chart-topper is currently in her pop prime, scoring her latest Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 in May (via her co-billed role on The Weeknd’s “Save Your Tears” remix), her most recent Pop Airplay No. 1 in February (“34+35”), and her latest Billboard 200 No. 1 album in November (Positions).
But where does she stand among her fellow season 21 Voice coaches Kelly Clarkson, John Legend and Blake Shelton? On the new Billboard Pop Shop, we break down the quartet’s history on the Billboard charts, including their collective No. 1s and top 10s on the Hot 100 and Billboard 200. Listen below.
Also on the show, we’ve got chart news about The Kid LAROI and Justin Bieber’s “Stay” returning to No. 1 on the Hot 100, how Kacey Musgraves makes a splash in the top three on the Billboard 200 with Star-Crossed, and how Metallica’s “Black Album” bounds back to the top 10 for the first time in 29 years, thanks to its 30th-anniversary reissue.
