Ariana Grande AF: newsletter #69



Well it only feels right to begin newsletter #69 with...

Music video for 34+35 on the way

This week it's been all eyes on '34+35' on Ariana's social media. Firstly, she posted a pouting selfie alongside the song title and emojis that insinuate a video shoot. Yesterday she went one step further by posting a short teaser video of a scientific themed video for this single. She's truly switching up positions from president to scientist! Are you looking forward to the video?

'pov' becomes the latest song to chart from 'positions'!

This week 'pov' became the fourth song to chart from the 'positions' era (following the title track, '34+35' and 'motive') due to TikTok users latching on to it. It debuted at #22 on Friday! Congratulations to Ariana. It was also announced that the album dropped to #3 this week behind Kylie Minogue and Little Mix.

'positions' single spends a 3rd week at #1!

This week's exciting news doesn't end there as Ariana kept up her position at the top of the U.K. chart for a third week! Congratulations once again. She faces tough competition from Radio 2 All-Stars and Billie Eilish for a fourth week, but can she do it? She would match the 4 weeks of '7 rings' (this time consecutively!) if so. Watch this space!

New certifications for 'bad idea' and 'One Last Time' announced!

Well, it looks like 'bad idea' is officially a 'single that never was' from the 'thank u, next' era as it has now been certified silver in the U.K.! Ari's top seller here 'One Last Time' has also been awarded a new certification as it gains incredible 3x platinum status. Congratulations to her!

Best album closer?

'pov' taking off got me thinking about Ariana's album closers as a whole. So I have put them all together in a poll! What is your favourite from the six? Feel free to let us know.

This week we also saw Ari teaming up with Thundercat for a performance, a cute animated advert for her 'R.E.M' perfume and more.

We placed 5th in the AF Posters' Chart this week with 213 posts! Thank you to everyone who continues to contribute.

'34+35' music video is out now!

On Tuesday we were treated to visuals for '34+35'! It was released at a sensible time in the U.K. for once as 9am in the U.S. translated to 5pm here. Ariana was a president in the 'positions' video and now she takes more of a scientific turn. Memorable scenes include her homage to Fembot from Austin Powers and Ariana even attempting the splits during the more choreography heavy parts. The video is already well on its way to 30 million views. Have you checked it out yet? Be sure to let us know what you think!

How many weeks will 'positions' spend at #1?

This week it was announced that Ariana has spent a 4th week at the top of the UK chart with 'positions' - fending off competition from Billie Eilish and Radio 2 All-stars! A huge congratulations to her. But... what about future weeks? Can she keep holding on for a little while longer? Let us know how long you think it'll manage at the top!

'Oh Santa!' with Mariah Carey and Jennifer Hudson coming soon!

As per usual... what a time to be an Ariana fan! We are now being treated to another song release on top of the 'positions' era being underway. 10 years ago Mariah released 'Oh Santa!' alongside an accompanying festive album. Now, a decade on, Ariana and Jennifer will be included on a remake of the holiday song as part of Mariah's impending Christmas special. Not only will this be released as a single on December 4th... a music video is on the way too! How exciting. How do you feel about this remake?

'positions' has been certified silver

The good news for 'positions' just keeps on coming! It has spent 4 weeks at #1, the video has crossed 100 million views and now it has been certified silver in the U.K. already, for sales of over 200,000. A huge congratulations to Ariana! Hopefully the accompanying album will follow suit with a silver certification in a couple of weeks.

Future singles from 'positions'?

We already know what the first two singles from 'positions' are but what about the future of the era? Will Ariana release many more? Well, nevertheless we can dream, so please vote for what you'd like as single #3, #4 and maybe even #5 and let us know your choices!

It was also announced that we placed 6th in the latest AF Posters' Chart with 95 posts! Thanks everyone for your contributions.

'Santa Tell Me' season is officially under way!

Streaming users have gone Christmas crazy this weekend as 'Santa Tell Me' is now as high as #5 on the U.K. Spotify chart! Unfortunately, Ariana's modern festive classic was unable to chart this week due to the 3-track rule, but next week 'pov' should be starred out instead of it. Come and track the progress of 'Santa Tell Me' with us this year!

'positions' spends a FIFTH week at #1 in the U.K.!

It was announced on Friday that Ariana has spent a FIFTH week at #1 here in the United Kingdom with 'positions'! Her latest lead single now overtakes '7 rings' to be her second longest-running #1 hit. It's just 'thank u, next' that stands in its way with 6 weeks for that chart-topper. Exciting times!

'34+35' receives a music video boost!

Ariana's singles chart success this week was not limited to 'positions' as '34+35' is gaining nicely thanks to its music video release! The second single from this campaign climbed four places to #13 this week - marking four weeks in the top 20 so far. What a hit-maker she is.

Ari makes an appearance in Mariah's Christmas special trailer!

Queen of Christmas Mariah Carey has invited some friends along for her festive special this year. One of these celebrity companions is of course Ariana! She can be spotted looking glam in the trailer on two separate occasions. Less than a week to go until we get to see that and their 'Oh Santa!' collaboration in action!

Ariana nominated for the Grammy Awards 2021!

The 'positions' era is of course not eligible for any Grammy nods yet but Ariana has squeezed into the pool this year thanks to Gaga collab 'Rain On Me'! The two superstars are nominated for the 'Best Pop Duo/Group Performance' category this year. Fingers crossed that they can take it home!

It was also announced that we placed 5th in the AF Posters' Chart with 114 posts. Thanks so much everyone for your contributions!

'Oh Santa!' is out NOW!

Ariana continues to give fans something to get excited about this winter as herself and Jennifer Hudson jumped on a remix of Mariah Carey's 'Oh Santa!'. We got to hear the facelift of Mimi's 2010 unappreciated gem this week, accompanied by a music video. The three ladies sport festive dresses and sing their hearts out. We even get a moment when Mariah and Ariana tackle whistle notes at the same time. 'Oh Santa!' has reached #1 on both U.K. and U.S. iTunes this week. Have you heard it yet? Let us know what you think!

'positions' spends a SIXTH week at #1 in the United Kingdom

This week it was revealed that Ariana spent a sixth week atop the U.K. singles chart with 'positions'! It was a nail-biting week as Mariah's 'All I Want For Christmas Is You' put up a fight, but ultimately Ariana won the battle this week by around 2k sales. Can she manage a 7th week? Well, we shall see, but for now she has achieved her joint longest-running #1 hit ever here - such an impressive feat that Ari herself took to Twitter to acknowledge it. If that wasn't enough, Ariana book-ended the top 10 - with '34+35' climbing to #10!

'positions' (album) is now certified silver!

Ari's latest studio album 'positions' has now been certified silver 5 weeks after release! Congrats to her for passing the 60k+ threshold.

'Santa Tell Me' returns to the U.K. chart!

Lately 'Santa Tell Me' has been blocked from entering the U.K. top 40 due to 'positions', '34+35' and 'pov' filling her spaces for the 3-track rule. However, 'Santa Tell Me' has now usurped 'pov' so it was able to re-enter for this year. It starts off its 2020 run at an impressive #16 so far. It was also announced by the OCC, as part of a relevant article, that 'Santa Tell Me' is the 8th most streamed Christmas song in the United Kingdom - with 78 million streams to its name thus far. Princess of Christmas!

Ariana in your Spotify Wrapped 2020 stats

This week saw the world go stats crazy as we scrambled to find out what Spotify Wrapped had in store for us. Did Ariana make an appearance in any of your lists?

It was also announced that we placed 8th in the AF Posters' Chart with 74 posts. Thanks for helping us to keep up our top 10 run!

'excuse me, i love you' coming to Netflix!

Musical Netflix documentaries have been very in recently with the likes of Taylor Swift and Shawn Mendes having one to their name. Now it is Ariana's turn! A Sweetener World Tour movie has been rumoured for a whole year now after fans were spotted with a camera crew at certain shows. Now, we finally get to see this concert film in action and it goes by the name of 'excuse me, i love you' - a sentimental lyric taken from the Ariana song 'R.E.M.'. This is due to be released on Netflix as soon as December 21st. A trailer is out and shows Ariana at both her most vulnerable and jokey self. Plus clips of her performing '7 rings' are included for good measure. Will you be giving this a watch?

'Santa Tell Me' reaches a new peak in the U.K. chart!

Ariana continues to be a force in the singles chart! 'positions' is still top 3, '34+35' climbed within the top 10 and now 'Santa Tell Me' has reached a new peak. It eclipses its previous placing of #13 by two spots already. Will she be able to turn #11 into a 20th top 10 hit in the coming weeks? Be sure to follow its progress with us!

Ariana Christmas survivor underway!

This week us mods kicked off a brand new activity to celebrate the festive period! On Thursday, we hosted a Christmas listening session for those who wanted to familiarise or re-familarise themselves with Ariana's holiday output. Now, following this, we have launched our first ever series of Christmas survivor polls. We're racing through them quite quickly to get through all 13 songs in time for Christmas - so far 'A Hand For Mrs. Claus' has been eliminated in 13th and 'Santa Baby' in 12th. Have your say above for Round 3!

New Ariana single certifications!

Calling all certification buffs! Ariana now has two brand new ones to her name. First of all, beloved album track 'Greedy' from the 'Dangerous Woman' era has been certified silver, yay! Secondly, standalone summer single 'boyfriend' (featuring Social House) has gone Gold. Congrats Ari!

'thank u, next' vs. 'positions'

A debate arose this week in the chart forum that we decided to spread to its natural home in the Ariana AF too. The debate in question? Which is better - 'thank u, next' or 'positions'? These songs are Ariana's latest two leads that both spent 6 weeks at #1 in the U.K. - please vote in the poll and let us know your choice!

It was announced that we finished 6th in this week's AF Posters' Chart with 118 posts - thanks all for keeping it going!

'excuse me, i love you' sneak peak released!

Just one more sleep to go now until Ariana's Netflix concert film 'excuse me, i love you' is out! In the mean time we have been treated to an exclusive clip from the movie. This minute of footage shows Ariana performing sweetener album track 'everytime' to a crowd of very excited fans. Check out the clip above and let us know if you'll be watching 'excuse me, i love you'!

New festive peaks for Ariana in the U.S.!

This week both 'Santa Tell Me' and 'Oh Santa!' have achieved new peaks on the Billboard Hot 100! The former cracks the top 40 there for the first time at #39. The latter, thanks to its 2020 remix, has outdone the previous peak of #100 and now sits at a more comfortable #76. Ariana of course continues to do well in the U.K. singles chart too - with 'positions' still in the top 5 amidst the Christmas rush, plus continued top 20 positions for 2nd single '34+35' and 'Santa Tell Me'. Come and discuss her chart progress with us!

'positions' vs. '34+35'

So far the 'positions' era has provided us with two official singles. The lead single of the same name has added to Ariana's #1 tally and shown stability across both sides of the pond. Single #2 '34+35' has resulted in another top 10 result from the era and should be achieving a new peak in the new year. Both records have accompanying music video too. So, with a little bit of time for the dust to settle now, which is your favourite? Vote in the poll above and let us know your thoughts, including on the music videos if you've had a chance to see both too.

Christmas survivor down to the top 5 songs

Our Christmas survivor polls have continued and we're down to a top 5 now following the shock exit of 'Oh Santa!' in 6th. Please cast your votes in round 9 above!

Updated U.K. sales!

Jay has kindly provided us with some updated sales this week - including for the 'positions' and 'thank u, next' albums plus 10 different songs!

It was also announced that we placed 5th in the AF Posters' Chart with 193 posts. Amazing! Thanks for the continued discussion.

Happy 2021 Ariana AF!

Happy New Year everyone! We hope 2021 will be a healthy and happy year for you all. Thank you to all the members who contributed towards the Ariana AF being so active last year. Here's to the continuing of the 'positions' era this year and also a look back at 5 years of 'Dangerous Woman'!

Ariana 2020 EOY Awards

Ariana's "quiet year" turned out to be the complete opposite so we have plenty of material to work with again for some reflective 2020 polls! Categories include: Best single, album track, collaboration, music video and 5 year anniversary song. Feel free to vote and let us know what you picked.

'positions' experiences a huge rise in the U.K. album chart!

This week 'positions' rose a massive 18 places in the albums chart thanks to the Christmas physical market impact dying down. Our stream queen is on the cusp of top 10 once more - can she make it back in next week? Be sure to follow its progress with us!

YouTube stats January 2021 update

The year is off to an interesting start as there is plenty of movement in this month's YouTube stats update! Take a look above.

'Santa Tell Me' hits another new peak on the Billboard Hot 100!

Ariana's festive hit 'Santa Tell Me' has gone from strength to strength stateside as it has now registered ANOTHER new peak this week - #17! Congrats to Ari.

Oh you guys also need to check out the botched MTV version of '34+35' if you haven't already, of course.

It was announced that we placed 8th in the AF Posters' Chart with 74 posts! Thanks once again to everyone who contributed towards a successful year for the Ariana AF.

Big certifications update for Ariana!

2021 is off to a flying start for Ariana as three of her singles have achieved new certifications! Both 'positions' and 'Stuck With U' have crossed the 400k mark so she adds two new gold certifications to her name. Additionally, latest single '34+35' has quickly been awarded a silver certification. Congrats to Ari! Jay has kindly updated her stats for us above.

'34+35' achieves a new peak in the U.K.!

This week it was announced that '34+35' has reached a new peak of #8 on the singles chart - matching its peak in the U.S.! This is Ariana's fourth single to achieve this position here. What is your favourite of these? '34+35' has now been added to the Radio 1 playlist too so here's to some more upward movement.

2021 hopes and predictions

This topic has been a little quiet so far so please join in if you have anything to share - I'd be really interested to hear thoughts other than my own on this! The discussion in question is the year ahead for Ariana - what would you like to see from her and what do you predict will pan out?

Doja Cat feature on the horizon?

This week rumour mill went into overdrive as Doja Cat teased a project called 'PLANET HER' and dropped her following down to just 8 people - one of which is Ariana! Could this selective group of artists be features for this project? How do you feel about the two of them potentially teaming up for a second time?

This week it was announced that we placed in 8th in the AF Posters' Chart with 45 posts. Very pleased to be starting off the year in the top 10!
