In less than a year, Ariana Grande captured the No. spot 1, twice, on the Billboard Top 200 - first with her Republic Records debut "Yours Truly" and also with its 2014 follow-up, "My Everything." "Yours Truly" yielded the game-changing pop smash "The Way" featuring Mac Miller, which went triple-platinum, landed in the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100, and seized No. 1 on the iTunes Overall Top Songs chart. Meanwhile, the platinum-selling "My Everything" garnered a Grammy Award nomination for "Best Pop Vocal Album" and spawned the six times-platinum hit "Problem." Upon the single's release, Ariana became "the youngest woman to debut with over 400K sold first-week," while the song ranked as the 5th "highest digital song debut for a female artist" and 9th highest ever. Moreover, it debuted at No. 1 in 85 countries, topping the iTunes Overall Top Songs and Pop Songs charts for four weeks.
