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.
