Singer and actress Ariana Grande transitioned seamlessly from tweener sitcoms to expertly-crafted adult pop to become one of the most successful and talked-about performers of her generation.
Grande shot to national fame in 2010 as a cast member on the Nickelodeon television series Victorious. Her debut single "Put Your Hearts Up" followed a year later, and in 2013, her debut album Yours Truly debuted atop the Billboard 200 chart, buoyed by the hit singles "The Way" and "Baby I."
Subsequent efforts like My Everything, Dangerous Woman and Sweetener further showcased Grande's powerful four-octave vocal range as well as her skillful blending of pop, R&B and hip-hop, culminating in the 2019 release of her first U.S. number one hit "thank u, next," a record inspired by her tumultuous (and very public) personal life. Its accompanying music video shattered many viewership records.
