This isn’t the first time pop-icon Selena Gomez lost her most-followed title. Back in October, soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo stole the title from Gomez for a short while.
Now, Ariana Grande is the most-followed woman on Instagram with a count of 146,283,173 followers.
The shift in title should come as no surprise considering Grande’s consistent and frequent presence on the social media platform.
Grande’s Instagram growth has been quite impressive, pulling in an incredible 13 million new followers in the last four months.
In comparison, Selena Gomez announced back in September that she would be taking a social media break before she checked into an inpatient facility for mental health treatment.
Grande’s newly acquired Instagram title comes alongside the massive success of her recently released album Thank U, Next. The album is sitting pretty at the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 for a second week in a row.
Who run the Billboard chart? GIRLS!
This means that women in lead roles have spent seven weeks at No. 1 on the chart.
The four songs at the top are in this order: “7 Rings” by Grande, “Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored” by Grande, “Thank U, Next” by Grande and “Without Me” by Halsey.
The revelation was made in Billboard’s questions section when a fan asked about how often women hold the top four spots.
Grande holding the top three spots makes her the first soloist to hold the top three ranks and the second act overall after The Beatles.
The top four belongs to both women with no featured artists, and the last time that’s happened was in 2014. Those songs were as followed: “All About That Bass” by Meghan Trainor, “Shake It Off” by Taylor Swift, “Habits (Stay High) by Tove Lo and “Bang Bang” by Jessie J, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj.
According to Billboard, in “7 Rings” holds the No. 1 spot for one more week, women in the No. 1 spot will match 2018’s total sum of women at the top. We love the girl power.
