Ariana Problem Billboard Top 10 Debut

ariana-problemAriana Grande’s ‘Problem’ is heading for a Top 10 debut on next week’s Hot 100. It could sell more than 300,000 downloads in the tracking week ending Sunday, May 2, following its digital release yesterday (28), reports Billboard.

How notable is a debut sales frame of at least 300,000? Just 22 songs have arrived with that sum or better since SoundScan began tracking digital sales more than a decade ago. The last two such songs launched on the Nov. 16, 2013 Digital Songs chart:

Eminem’s ‘The Monster,’ featuring Rihanna (373,000) and One Direction’s ‘Story of My Life’ (305,000). (Flo Rida’s ‘Right Round’ holds the record with 636,000 first-week downloads sold [Feb. 28, 2009]).

In addition to its sales, which would likely account for the majority of its Hot 100 chart points next week, ‘Problem’ is already receiving early radio support. The song drew 293 first-day plays on 87 stations yesterday, according to Nielsen BDS. Pop Songs reporter KIIS Los Angeles led all stations with 17 first-day plays. Among all stations, ‘Problem’ garnered 3.8 million in opening-day radio audience.

Ariana will also perfom 2014 Today Show Toyota Concert Series!
