A lot is happening in Ariana Grande's universe. Our girl went full-on platinum blonde for her latest single, "Focus." The song recalls "Problem" and it truly feels like vintage Ari. Late last week she said the tune sounds nothing like her upcoming full-length, Moonlight. So what can we expect? Who knows, but here's hoping there's a certain feminist message to the release. She's all about equality these days.

Still, "Focus" is a total banger. Today it has been revealed that the song debuted at No. 7 on this week's Billboard Hot 100. Ariana Grande has been here before, but not on her own: This is her first time breaking the Top 10 on a solo track, following collaborations like "Problem" with Iggy Azalea, "Break Free" with Zedd and "Love Me Harder" with the Weeknd. This time, no collaboration needed!

Let's hope it stays up there. The Top 10 is a competitive place these days, with AdeleJustin Bieber and The Weeknd holding strong. In the meantime, we ranked every Ariana Grande collaboration...ever. See how all these jams stack up!
