In just five years, Ariana Grande has gone from TV child star to purveyor of top notch pop. If her new single No Tears Left To Cry - a vibrant and defiant number helmed by hitmaker Max Martin - is anything to go by, she's about to step up into the big leagues with her fourth album.

Across all 18 of Ariana's Top 100 entries on the Official Singles Chart, she's notched up 8.6 million combined sales, including an eye-watering 550 million plays across streaming services. We've counted down her Top 10 below, based on Official Charts Company data.

6. Break Free
Chart peak: 16
Combined sales: 608,000

After channelling ‘90s R&B and 1960 girl groups on her debut album Yours Truly, Ariana went into full on pop banger mode for her 2014 follow-up My Everything. Break Free showcased the shift best; assisted by EDM whizz Zedd, it’s colourful, life-affirming and was easily her boldest release yet. What’s more, the quite frankly ridiculous Barbarella-inspired video proved she had personality.

4. Into You
Chart peak: 14
Combined sales: 876,000

The second single from Ariana’s Dangerous Woman album has taken on cult status with Ariana fans as the often forgotten gem in her crown after it ‘only’ reached Number 14 on the Official UK Singles Chart at 13 on America’s Billboard Hot 100. It’s a relentless, throbbing, immaculately produced Max Martin production that doesn’t let up for a full four minutes and four seconds. If time is not of the essence, check out the six essays (six!) written about it on Maxopedia – a fan site dedicated to all of Max’s work.

10. Santa Tell Me
Chart peak: 28
Combined sales: 227,000

Unless you’re Mariah Carey or Wham!, Christmas songs can take a while to truly bed in to the festive season. Last year, three years after its release, Ariana’s yuletide offering Santa Tell Me entered the Top 40 on the Official Singles Chart for the first time, proving that it’s still possible to have success with a seasonal track if you get the formula right.
---
1. One Last Time
Chart peak: 2
Combined sales: 1.2 million

A modest hit when it was released in 2015 as the fifth single from her My Everything album, One Last Time – a love song set at the end of the world - took on new meaning in the wake of the Manchester terrorist attack, which claimed the lives of 22 people and injured over 500 at her arena concert. One Last Time was adopted by fans after the attack and climbed to Number 2 on the Official Singles Chart. It’s both her biggest selling (401,000 downloads) and most streamed (85 million plays), making it her biggest hit overall to date.

Ariana Grande’s Official Top 10 biggest singles:

01. 'One Last Time' {2} [1.2m]
02. 'Bang Bang' (with Jessie J & Nicki Minaj) {1}
03. 'Side To Side' (feat. Nicki Minaj) {4}
04. 'Into You' {14} [876k]
05. 'Problem' (feat. Iggy Azalea) {1}
06. 'Break Free' (feat. Zedd) {16} [608k]
07. 'Dangerous Woman' {17}
08. 'Love Me Harder' (feat. The Weeknd) {48}
09. 'Focus' {10}
10. 'Santa Tell Me' {28} [227k]

Nice to see Into You’s numbers so high despite its chart position. Should have been at the very least top 5.

I am guessing The Way is close behind Santa Tell Me, as that was recently certified silver for 200k+.

Wow at 'Into You' being ahead of 'Problem', I don't remember it being that big!! Much deserved though as that and 'Love Me Harder' are easily the highlights of her discog for me.

'One Last Time' actually surpassing the paid-for sales of 'Problem' is a bit of a surprise as well considering how much the market declined between their respective chart peaks.

One Last Time sold a lot in pure sales back when it first entered the charts in 2014!

Nope. I believe 'Bang Bang' is also a million seller and I am going to assume that if STS isn't a million seller, it's probs about ~70k away.

Love Me Harder would have been massive if it was released a year later when The Weeknd was really blowing up

Ugh Santa Tell Me is an awful Xmas song for me, just sounds like it could have been released at any time of the year!
