Ariana Grande scores her first No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 (dated Nov. 17), as "Thank U, Next" rockets onto the chart at No. 1, arriving as the top-streamed and top-selling song of the week.

The track dethrones Maroon 5's "Girls Like You," featuring Cardi B, after seven weeks on top, although the collaboration ties for the second-most weeks spent at No. 1 in the history of the Radio Songs chart.

Let's run down the top 10 of the newest Hot 100, which blends all-genre U.S. streaming, radio airplay and digital sales data. All charts will update on Billboard.com tomorrow (Nov. 13).

Grande's First Hot 100 No. 1: “Next," released on Republic Records, is Grande's first Hot 100 No. 1, and the 1,079th in the chart's 60-year history. She previously hit a No. 2 high with "Problem," featuring Iggy Azalea, in 2014. "Next" also bows as her 11th Hot 100 top 10 and first since "God Is a Woman," which reached No. 8 in September.

Grande reigns at last with her 35th Hot 100 entry. Among Hot 100 chart-topping acts, she ends the longest wait for her first No. 1 (by total chart appearances from a first entry) since Justin Bieber set the mark by earning his first leader with his 47th charted title, "What Do You Mean?," in 2015.

Grande first hit the Hot 100 (debuting at No. 10) on April 13, 2013, with the eventual No. 9-peaking "The Way," featuring Mac Miller.

No. 1 in Streams & Sales: “Next" launches with 55.5 million U.S. streams and 81,000 downloads sold in the week ending Nov. 8, according to Nielsen Music. Notably, the song debuts on the Hot 100 with just over five days of streaming and sales data, as it was released late Saturday, Nov. 3 (as the tracking week for those metrics runs Friday through Thursday). Grande has released two videos for the song so far: an audio clip upon its release and a lyric video Nov. 6.

With "Next," Grande likewise earns her first No. 1 on the Streaming Songs chart and her fourth leader on Digital Song Sales, after "Problem," for three weeks in 2014; "Bang Bang," with Jessie J and Nicki Minaj (one week, 2014); and "No Tears Left to Cry" (one, this May).

"Next" also drew 11.3 million in all-format radio audience in the week ending Nov. 11.

"God Is a Woman" and "No Tears" are from Grande's third Billboard 200 No. 1 album, Sweetener, which debuted atop the list dated Sept. 1, while "Next" is, as of now, a stand-alone track, with the song's lyrics referencing past relationships with, among others, Big Sean, ex-finance Pete Davidson and the late Miller.

Meme-orable: As for its lyrics, aiding the buzz of "Next" are, specifically, its lines, "One taught me love / One taught me patience / One taught me pain," which have sparked an onslaught of memes.

New at No. 1: "Next" is the 32nd single to debut at No. 1 on the Hot 100 and the first by a female artist in three years, since Adele's "Hello" on the chart dated Nov. 14, 2015.

As noticed by chart-watcher Jake Rivera, "Next" is the fourth No. 1 debut of 2018, tying the record established in 1995, the first year that any single soared in at the summit. "Next" follows prior 2018 No. 1 bows for Childish Gambino's "This Is America" (May 19) and Drake's "Nice for What" (April 21) and "God's Plan" (Feb. 3). The four No. 1 entrances in 1995: Michael Jackson's "You Are Not Alone," Mariah Carey's "Fantasy," Whitney Houston's "Exhale (Shoop Shoop)" and Carey and Boyz II Men's "One Sweet Day."

Pop on top, again: As "Next" follows Maroon 5's "Girls," featuring Cardi B, at No. 1, two pop songs have led the Hot 100 in succession for the first time since Jan. 27, when Camila Cabello's "Havana," featuring Young Thug, replaced Ed Sheeran's "Perfect." "Next" also ends a record streak of 42 weeks of No. 1s with at least one credited rapper, from Young Thug (on "Havana") to Cardi B ("Girls" and "I Like It," with Bad Bunny and J Balvin). The run also included Drake ("Plan," "Nice" and "In My Feelings"); Childish Gambino ("America"); Post Malone and Ty Dolla $ign ("Psycho"); and, XXXTentacion ("Sad!").

As "Girls" drops to No. 2, pop songs rank at Nos. 1 and 2 on the Hot 100 in the same week for the first time since Jan. 27 ("Havana" and "Perfect," respectively).

No. 1 is a woman: Grande is the first female soloist to top the Hot 100 unaccompanied by another act since Cardi B on Oct. 21, 2017, when her debut hit "Bodak Yellow (Money Moves)" spent its third and final week at No. 1.

Solo women in lead roles have led the Hot 100 for just three weeks (of 46 total so far) in 2018, thanks to "Next," "I Like It" and "Havana." That follows totals of six weeks in 2017 (via two No. 1s); 16 in 2016 (three No. 1s); 10 in 2015 (four No. 1s); 28 in 2014 (five No. 1s); and, 17 in 2013 (four No. 1s).

The last year in which lead solo women logged as few as three weeks at No. 1 on the Hot 100? 1975, thanks to one each for Linda Ronstadt ("You're No Good"), Olivia Newton-John ("Have You Never Been Mellow") and Minnie Riperton ("Lovin' You"). (After the Hot 100's Aug. 4, 1958, inception, no lead solo women reigned until June 27, 1960, when Connie Francis spent her first of two weeks on top with "Everybody's Somebody's Fool.")

’Thank's for the memories: Grande is thankful for the fourth Hot 100 No. 1 that includes "thank" in its title, following "Thank God I Found You," by Carey featuring Joe and 98 Degrees (2000), "Thank God I'm a Country Boy," by John Denver (1975), and "Thank You Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin"/"Everybody Is a Star," by Sly & The Family Stone (1970).

(Grande's new No. 1 also takes over as the highest-charting Hot 100 hit to begin with "Thank U"; Alanis Morissette's "Thank U" reached No. 17 in 1998. The only other such title? "Thank U Very Much" by The Scaffold, a No. 69 hit in 1968. You're welcome for that trivia ...)

More Grande: Beyond the Hot 100's top 10, Grande's "Woman" holds at No. 20 and fellow Sweetener single "Breathin" charges 32-21, passing its prior No. 22 peak; following the Nov. 7 premiere of its official video, "Breathin" bounds by 64 percent to 12.2 million streams by 118 percent to 12,000 sold in the week ending Nov. 8 and claims the Hot 100's top Streaming and Sales Gainer awards.

"Next" easily outperformed Maroon 5's "Girls" in the tracking week, as the latter drops to No. 2 on the Hot 100 after seven weeks at No. 1.
