As of yesterday Ariana now has 7 UK #1s! This means that, along with Jess Glynne and Kylie Minogue, she is now part of the 3rd place tier for solo females with the most #1s. It's Madonna and Rihanna who occupy the top 2. So, to celebrate that milestone, let's look back and rank them all!

Her U.K. #1s are the following:

Problem (feat. Iggy Azalea)
Bang Bang (with Jessie J & Nicki Minaj)
thank u, next
7 rings
break up with your girlfriend, i'm bored
Rain On Me (with Lady Gaga)
positions

Please rank from favourite to least favourite!

Right now I think mine would be:

01. 7 rings
02. Rain On Me (with Lady Gaga)
03. break up with your girlfriend, i'm bored
04. positions
05. thank u, next
06. Problem (feat. Iggy Azalea)
07. Bang Bang (with Jessie J & Nicki Minaj)

The top 2 is really close, same with 'positions' and 'thank u, next', with 'Bang Bang' a firm last.

As much as I love Ariana my favourites by her all didn’t go to #1!

But from her #1’s I’d rank them as

1. Rain On Me
2. thank u, next
3. 7 rings
4. Bang Bang
5. positions
6. break up with your girlfriend, i’m bored
7. Problem


positions may well climb though. I liked it more than I did thank u, next on first impressions but that’s really grown to be special song for me now wub.gif

1) break up with your girlfriend, i'm bored
2) Problem (feat. Iggy Azalea)
3) thank u, next
4) 7 rings
5) positions
6) Bang Bang (with Jessie J & Nicki Minaj)
7) Rain On Me (with Lady Gaga)

I like them all and it feels really strange putting ROM at the bottom but I think I've listened to it so much this year I need a break from it, and as already noted these aren't even her best songs. OLT and NTLTC deserve.

I think? That top 4 are ridiculously close.
Loved Problem at the time but hardly listen to it now, never liked Bang Bang apart from Nicki’s verse 🙃

Her #1s are most definitely not her best stuff. Only Rain On Me I would actively choose to listen to here.

Agree with the sentiment that her #1s are not her best material, with the exception of thank u, next and maybe break up with your girlfriend.

1) thank u, next
2) break up with your girlfriend
3) Rain On Me w/Gags
4) Problem w/Iggy
5) 7 rings
6) positions
7) Bang Bang w/Jessie & Nicki

I believe Ariana is the prime example of #1s not equating quality- songs like One Last Time, Into You, No Tears, God is a Woman etc all show off her artistry a lot better but 1 - 4 are solid songs for me.

10 thank u, next
10 Rain On Me (with Lady Gaga)
09 positions
06 7 rings
06 break up with your girlfriend, i'm bored
04 Problem (feat. Iggy Azalea)
00 Bang Bang (with Jessie J & Nicki Minaj)

I dislike 'Problem' and absolutely hate 'Bang Bang' — as others have said, she's definitely an artist where her best singles didn't reach number one.

I found this really difficult because, as other people have said, most of these are not her best songs.

7 rings
Bang Bang (with Jessie J & Nicki Minaj)
thank u, next
Rain On Me (with Lady Gaga)
Problem (feat. Iggy Azalea)

I see a lot of people saying their favorite songs by her haven't gone #1. While that does mostly apply to me as well, my top pick from this list is also one of my favorite songs by her. 7 rings is an absolute banger.

Ranked:

1- 7 rings
2- thank u, next
3- positions
4- break up with your girlfriend, i'm bored
5- Problem (feat. Iggy Azalea)
6- Bang Bang (with Jessie J & Nicki Minaj)
7- Rain On Me (with Lady Gaga)
