With her new single “Yes, And?,” Ariana Grande has now debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for the sixth time, tying with Taylor Swift for the most among women, according to Billboard.

“Yes, And?” is the lead single off of Grande’s seventh studio album, “Eternal Sunshine,” which is set to be released on March 8. 

The song drew 27.2 million streams and garnered 24.8 million radio airplay audience impressions from Jan. 12 to Jan. 18, according to data collected by Luminate. The single also sold 53,000 units, with 41,000 of those digital downloads.
