Ariana Grande has had a pretty successful year so far. From the release of chart-topping ‘Thank U, Next’ to ‘7 Rings’, the 25-year-old is having no trouble making a name for herself in the music industry.
It might surprise you, though, that Grande fans are currently boycotting her second number one hit, ‘7 Rings’. But don’t worry it’s all for a good cause.
It’s no secret that Ariana Grande has been killin’ it lately.
The 25-year-old superstar snagged her first number one single in the US with popular breakup anthem, ‘Thank U, Next’.
And in a matter of months, she scored another top spot with hit track ‘7 Rings’ which has been sitting at number one for three weeks.
So, we were a little surprised to find out that fans have been hell-bent on boycotting the song.
omg 7 rings just came on and i skipped so fast #Boycott7Rings— nicole (@needynic) February 11, 2019
At first, we assumed there was some political motivation, but it turns out that fans are actually trying to help Grande break a record.
she’s blocking herself from another #1 with buwygib— nicole (@needynic) February 11, 2019
According to Billboard, only 33 songs have spent their first week on the chart at number one and only a handful of stars are listed twice including Ariana Grande.
If Grande can score a third first-week chart-topper, she’ll be the first artist in history to do so.
Hence, the boycott. Fans are hoping that by skipping ‘7 Rings’, Grande can break the record.
And they’re pretty serious about it.
Of course, it wasn’t long before Grande caught wind of the boycott but she had a good sense of humor about it.
