Ariana Grande has become the most-streamed female artist on Spotify, taking over Rihanna who previously held the top spot.
Grande was obviously delighted by the news, but said that she hoped Rihanna would soon regain the number one position.
The singer shared an Instagram post explaining the news, which she captioned: “Holy shit thank you all so much for listening and caring at all let alone this much.”
“I can’t wait to give you new things to listen to,” she said. “Now can Rihanna please drop her album so she can rightfully snatch this back and fill my ears again please.”
Last month, Rihanna confirmed she was working on new music to Entertainment Tonight, her first new material since her 2016 album.
“I am always working on music,” she told the publication. “I am always working on music and when I am ready to put it out in the way that I feel fit, it’s gonna come out. And you’re not going to be disappointed when it happens. It’s going to be worth it.”
“I’m not just gonna put it out just because people are waiting. It’s taken this long, I’m gonna make it worth it.”
As well as working on her ninth album, Rihanna has just launched Fenty Skin, an "Earth conscious" range for all skin types that includes a cleanser, toning serum and moisturiser made with natural ingredients.
