Ariana Grande Is Now the Biggest Female Artist on YouTube
Ariana Grande is officially the biggest female artist on YouTube after dethroning the previous title-holder.
The pop star is now the most subscribed-to woman on the video platform. She surpassed Taylor Swift and Katy Perry to take the title. Grande's most recent video along, for "break up with your girlfriend, i'm bored," earned 21.9 million views in 24 hours. It was the second biggest debut of 2019, behind the release of "7 Rings."
In addition to her latest title, Grande is No. 4 on the Global Top Artist chart. Her single "7 Rings" is seated at No. 1 on the U.S. Top Songs chart.
The 25-year-old isn't the only woman on YouTube seeing a major increase in video plays and subscriptions. Kacey Musgraves, who had a huge night at the 2019 Grammys on Feb. 10, saw a major spike in views and subscriptions. Uploads saw an increase of over 1700 percent on Monday,
Grande has been quiet about her latest accolade, though she has been celebrating others – including her songs charting and her latest Grammy win – on Twitter with fans.
