Last week, Ariana held the top 3 spots on the Billboard Hot 100 with “7 Rings” at the top followed by “Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored” in second, and “Thank U, Next" closing out the top 3. This week, all three of those songs are still within the top 10 with "7 Rings" in its 5th week in the coveted number one slot! The only other musician to claim this impressive feat was The Beatles back in 1964!

Ariana's Sweetener World Tour starts on March 18, 2019, and will make a stop at Milwaukee's Fiserv Forum on July 5, 2019! With her efforts to tighten security, she is encouraging that anyone attending her shows use clear bags (or fanny packs) to help security check guests more efficiently prior to her performances.

How long will Ariana's new reign as most-followed female Instagrammer last? Only time will tell.
