Ariana May Be Bigger Than The Beatles, Hard As It Is To Believe

55 years later and Ariana has taken No. 1, 2, & 3 on Billboards Hot 100 Chart.

Ariana Grande has simultaneously claimed the top 3 spots on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart. This feat hasn't been achieved since the Beatles did it 55 years ago. All three of these songs are from her most recent album, "Thank U, Next." Her No. 1 song is currently "7 Rings," which has been in this spot for 4 weeks now. This song was truly inspiring to a lot of fans, including myself. No. 2 is one of her newest songs, "Break Up With Your Girlfriend I'm Bored." There has been a lot of controversy regarding this song, but it has still found its way to the top. Finally, taking lucky number 3 is her song "Thank U, Next," which moved from No. 7 to No. 3 and has been a leading song on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for 7 weeks now. Ariana's hit song "Thank U, Next" has been an all-time favorite for most Arianators since it first came out in early November. I personally could not be more inspired to see the Queen herself take the top 3 spots.

The last time this happened was in 1964 when the Beatles lead with their top 5 hits: "Can't Buy Me Love," "Twist and Shout," "She Loves You," "I Want to Hold Your Hand", and "Please Please Me."

While the Beatles may have been hot stuff 55 years ago, Ariana definitely has them beat in this day in age.

After this major outbreak, Ariana's career has hit an all-time high in less than 24 hours. Her music video views have increased tremendously and so have her followers. However, Ariana's songs are still competing against the song "Without Me" by Halsey, which has been on the Billboard Top 100 List for 19 weeks now and was No. 1 for 3 weeks. Right behind "Without Me" is "Sunflower" by Post Malone, which has been on the list for 17 weeks and was also the No. 1 spot for a couple of weeks. With just these two songs, Ariana has a lot of competition and the pressure to keep the top 3 spots is going to be very important for her if she wants to continue going forward with her career.

Does Ariana deserve the record she just broke, taking the spot from the famed Beatles? Is her music truly worthy of being compared to legends like Michael Jackson? Some seem to think so, while others argue that her fame is helped along by today's social media influence.

While Ariana creates outstanding music, not everyone is a fan. However, because of today's social media influences, these people are now exposed to her music even more. From Instagram to Twitter, Ariana's music is posted everywhere by all of the Arianators in the world. Even people who have no idea who she is or what her songs are called listen to her simply because she's 'popular' and nowadays popularity plays a huge role in what people think they like versus what they actually like. Yes, I love Ariana Grande's songs simply because I enjoy them, but this isn't the case for all of her 'fans.'

Now there is only one question that remains, "Has Ariana's career hit its peak or will she be able to uphold this title and stay in the top 3?"

1. "7 Rings" by Ariana Grande

"7 Rings" has been the leading song for 4 weeks now. It is indeed a jam.

2. "Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I'm Bored" by Ariana Grande

"Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I'm Bored" is now ranked the No. 2 song. Some love this song while others argue that it sends the wrong message, especially to her younger fans.

3. "Thank You, Next" by Ariana Grande

"Thank You, Next" moved from No. 7 to No. 3 and spent 7 weeks as the No. 1 spot when it was first released in November. It's views on YouTube continue to climb while many praise her for her unique and creative approach.

In conclusion, all hail the Queen herself.

There's a reason that everyone vacations to the sandy shores and the salty water.

There's something about windblown hair, ocean waves crashing into land, and the sound of seagulls chirping overhead. There's something about seeing an endless landscape studded with artistry and grace.

There is no place on earth that is better than the beach - no place better for your body, your mind, and your soul.

So here's a comprehensive list of the simplest reasons why the beach is the happiest place on earth:

1. Physical relaxation

There's no better way to decompress than loosening your muscles and relaxing in a laid-back chair.

2. Mental relaxation

When you're having a stressful day, and you feel like you need to get away, go ahead and take a beach day!

3. Lots of Vitamin D

Believe it or not, the majority of people don't get adequate amounts of Vitamin D, so spending a day (or a week) on the beach is good for your health. (also... TAN!)

4. Skin exfoliation & joint relief

The salt in ocean water is great for healing cuts and scrapes, along with providing relief for achy joints and muscles.

5. Stunning views

Is there really anything prettier?

6. Different foods

"Shrimp is the fruit of the sea. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. Dey's uh, shrimp-kabobs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There's pineapple shrimp, lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad, shrimp and potatoes, shrimp burger, shrimp sandwich. That- that's about it." (Forrest Gump)

7. Exciting things to do 

Parasailing, mini golf, go-carts, jet skis, surfing... you can never run out of things to do!

8. Time away from technology

No better way to relax than laying down the screens and absorbing the sunlight and pretty scenery.

9. Different exercise options

When you wake up in the morning, you can do yoga by the water, you can run in the sand, or pretty much thing any other workout that you can imagine.

10. Stress-free environment

Nothing better. In the entire world.
