Ariana ‘Record Breaking’ Problem Ellen

Ariana Grande’s ‘Problem’ is on track to score one of the biggest sales debuts ever for a digital song, reports Billboard. Industry forecasters suggest the tune may have sold more than 425,000 downloads in the week ending May 4.

That would immediately place it among the top 10 biggest sales debuts ever, and perhaps the fourth-largest bow for a woman. The largest ever debut for a song, according to SoundScan, was when Flo Rida’s ‘Right Round’ bowed with 636,000 downloads in the week ending Feb. 15, 2009.

‘Problem’ could also earn the 20-year old Grande the fourth-largest start for a woman, behind the launches of Taylor Swift’s ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together’ (623,000), Katy Perry’s ‘Roar’ (557,000) and Lady Gaga’s ‘Born This Way’ (448,000).

  • Alii

    It’s unreal how amazing she is live.

    • Cali

      Ikr she always sounds great even when she is like sick or something.

    • She’s good at screaming, I’ll give her props for that.

  • Allison

    i just cant seem to like her and i dont know why..

  • damnthesecelebs

    She seems quite embarassed to be doing those dances, the awkwardness is still there

    • iWizard

      I would too.

  • No offence but

    I see why Rihanna was laughing at her dancing…

  • Maggie

    I don’t like her, at all but she sounded good for someone performing on Ellen. That studio fucks up voices sometimes.

  • Emma Stone

    Her voice is always perfection live. I can’t even.

  • Kurdt Kobain

    I dont like her. But I like this song. She bothers me, though, and I dont know why.

  • Eva

    The hair still bugs me… what if she cuts it all off and starts all over again?

    • iWizard

      She’d need to shave her head but it’s over health seems to be the sentiment over there?

      • Eva

        sigh. It is just that she is so pretty, she would look perfectly fine with her hair shaved. This 24/7 tight ponytail looks painful and so unhealthy for her scalp!
