Ariana Grande performs ‘Dangerous Woman’ A Cappella

Capping the Hot 100’s top 10, Ariana Grande soars in at No. 10 with “Dangerous Woman.” The steamy song launches at No. 2 on Digital Songs (118,000, following its March 10 arrival) and No. 15 on Streaming Songs (9 million, with nearly half from Spotify clicks), while adding 24 million airplay impressions. The song is Grande’s seventh Hot 100 top 10 (and fifth to debut in the top 10) and the title track and lead single from her third full-length studio album, due May 20. She performed it (and fellow album track “Be Alright”) on NBC’s Saturday Night Live, which she hosted, March 12.

The arrival of “Woman” is additionally historic for Grande: she is the first artist in the chart’s 57-year history to debut in the top 10 with the lead single from each of her first three albums. Her debut single, “The Way” (featuring Mac Miller), began at No. 10 on April 13, 2013, introducing her first LP (and first Billboard 200 No. 1) Yours Truly. (The song would peak at No. 9.) On May 17, 2014, “Problem” (featuring Iggy Azalea) soared in at No. 3 (before peaking at a career-best No. 2), setting the stage for the No. 1 Billboard 200 entrance of My Everything.
