At age 25, Grande has delivered three platinum-selling albums and surpassed 18 billion streams, in addition to four GRAMMY Award nominations and landing eight hits in the Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. With 2016’s critically acclaimed “Dangerous Woman,” Grande both boldly defies expectation and reveals the full force of her voice,recently hailed as an “extraordinary, versatile, limitless instrument” upon Grande’s appearance on Time’s “100 Most Influential People” list.
Since making her full-length album debut with 2013’s Yours Truly (featuring the game-changing, triple-platinum smash, “The Way”), Grande has brought her striking vocal presence to a genre-blurring breed of pop, taking on R&B, soul, and electronic music with equal nuance and assurance. Arriving in 2014, her sophomore effort, My Everything, garnered a GRAMMY Award nomination for Best Pop Vocal Album and featured platinum hits, “Problem” and “Bang Bang.” Grande’s recent single, “No Tears Left To Cry,” debuted at #1 on iTunes in 88 countries worldwide. With its release, she became the first artist in music history to see the lead single from her first four albums debut on the Top 10 on Billboard Hot 100.
