Multi-platinum selling and Grammy Award-nominated artist, Ariana Grande, today revealed details behind her biggest European tour yet – THE DANGEROUS WOMAN TOUR, which includes a date at 3Arena on Saturday 20 May.
Within less than a year, ARIANA GRANDE captured No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 twice—first with her Republic Records debut “Yours Truly” and also with its 2014 follow-up, “My Everything.”
“Yours Truly” yielded the game-changing pop smash “The Way” featuring Mac Miller, which went triple-platinum, landed in the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100, and seized No. 1 on the iTunes Overall Top Songs chart. Meanwhile, the platinum-selling My Everything garnered a GRAMMY Award nomination for “Best Pop Vocal Album” and spawned the smash hit “Problem”, which claimed multi-platinum status in Italy, Holland, Norway, Sweden and the UK.
Upon the single’s release, Ariana became “the youngest woman to debut with over 400K sold first-week,” while the song ranked as the 5th “highest digital song debut for a female artist” and 9th highest ever. Moreover, it debuted at No. 1 in 85 countries, topping the iTunes Overall Top Songs and Pop Songs charts for four weeks.
Ariana also became the first woman in history and the first artist since Michael Jackson to simultaneously have three songs—“Problem,” “Break Free” featuring Zedd, and “Bang Bang” with Nicki Minaj and Jessie J—in the Top 6 of the Digital Songs Chart. “Bang Bang” went multi-platinum in Italy, Norway, Sweden and the UK and was GRAMMY-nominated for “Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.” By the end of the year, she landed four songs in the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100; the most of any artist in 2014. Ariana has enjoyed 14 Top 10 smash hits across the UK, France, Denmark, Italy, Norway, Germany and Sweden.
In 2014, Ariana was named “Best Female” at the MTV Europe Music Awards, as well as bagging the award for “Best Song” with “Problem” in the same year. Other accolades followed, with Ariana winning the award for “International Breakthrough of the Year” at the NRJ Music Awards 2014, the Bravo Otto “Super Singer” award in 2015, “Newcomer” at Germany’s 2014 BAMBI Awards, as well as a 2016 BRIT award nomination for “International Female Solo Artist and “Best International Female” award at the 2016 MTV Italian Music Awards.
2016 sees Ariana release her mega-anticipated third full-length album, “Dangerous Woman,” driven by the title track, which captured No. 1 on both iTunes Overall Top Songs Chart and Top Pop Songs Chart minutes after release. “Dangerous Woman” also debuted in the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100, earning her the distinction of becoming the first artist to debut on the chart with the lead single from her first three albums. Today, she sits as one of Spotify’s Top 10 most listened to artists in the world with over 28 million monthly listeners.
