Ariana Grande's "Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I'm Bored" becomes her lucky 13th top 10 on Billboard's Radio Songs chart, rising 12-10 on the list dated April 27, up 10% to 64.7 million in airplay audience in the tracking week, according to Nielsen Music.
The song follows her first No. 1 on the all-genre chart, "7 Rings," which led the prior two weeks.
Now with 13 total Radio Songs top 10s, Grande boasts the most among all artists dating to her first, "Problem," featuring Iggy Azalea, in June 2014. Drake ranks second in that span with 10. (Her six since last July are also a chart best, over runner-up Post Malone's four.)
Turns out BTS are true Ariana Grande stans—and the feeling is mutual. The 7 rings singer is currently on her Sweetener tour and a very special guest attended her concert last night at the Staples Center in Los Angeles: Jeon Jungkook.
The two artists expressed their love for each other on social media. Grande posted an Instagram of the duo backstage throwing up peace signs. She captioned the snap, "screaming. thank u soooooo much for coming to my show, Jungkook. it meant so much. love u sm."
Jungkook shared his experience of the concert on Twitter, even admitting that he "learned a lot" from her. He wrote, "I felt and learned a lot after seeing her stage. I am really challenged by her stage and will try harder! #ArianaGrande."
On Tuesday, Live Nation Florida announced that the 25-year-old singer won't be performing at the Amalie Arena in Tampa that night as scheduled, and that she also had to cancel her show at the Amway Center in Orlando that was set to take place on Wednesday night. Grande shared on her Instagram Stories that she is too ill to perform, and apologized to her fans.
"Tampa & Orlando, I woke up incredibly sick today, ran to my doctor here and have been told to postpone these shows tonight and tomorrow," she wrote. "I'm so beyond devastated."
"I will make this up to you, I promise," she continued. "Please forgive me. I love you and I will be back and better than ever as soon as possible."
Live Nation announced that the rescheduled shows will take place on Nov. 24 (Tampa) and Nov. 25 (Orlando), and that refunds are also available at the point of purchase. Meanwhile, Grande's two upcoming shows at the American Airlines Arena in Miami are still scheduled to take place on May 31 and June 1.
Ariana Grande hosted a rousing homecoming party at a sold-out AmericanAirlines Arena in Miami Friday night, an evening filled with more than enough ceiling-scraping high notes to dispel any concerns about her voice, briefly silenced this week by a tomato.
“Miami, it’s good to be home,” the Boca Raton native told the crowd toward the end of the show, as an acknowledgement of her mother and grandmother in the audience was drowned in applause. “Thank you. This made me feel so much better.”
The performance was the first since the 25-year-old singer was forced to postpone two concerts on her Sweetener World Tour, in Tampa on Tuesday and Orlando on Wednesday, after an allergic reaction to tomatoes. Grande’s next performance is a Saturday night return to AmericanAirlines Arena, again sold out.
Two days after Grande told her 156 million Instagram followers that her throat felt like she was “swallowing a cactus,” the singer proved the nightshade vegetable was no match for her four-octave vocal power and sunny disposition (or, perhaps, her grandmother’s homemade chicken soup).
In a brisk 90-minute performance packed with more than two dozen songs (full or abridged), but surprisingly devoid of personal chit-chat from the personable pop-star (no tomato joke?), Grande inspired numerous singalongs from a frenzied and mostly young, female audience.
