Ariana Grande, the pop music sensation, has once again claimed the throne on the Billboard Hot 100 with her new single “Yes, And?”. This is the eighth time the renowned singer has achieved this feat. The song is a testament to Grande’s extraordinary talent, having co-written and produced the track alongside industry veterans Max Martin and ILYA.

Details of Release and Reception

The track was released on January 12 and has since amassed an impressive 27.2 million streams, boasting 41,000 digital downloads. It has been presented in 14 different digital versions, including an extended mix, an a cappella version, and mixes with varying speeds. The song’s house music orientation draws inspiration from Madonna’s 1990 hit “Vogue”, and its music video pays homage to Paula Abdul’s 1988 masterpiece, “Cold Hearted”.

Future Projects and Collaborations

The success of “Yes, And?” is a prelude to Grande’s upcoming seventh studio album, Eternal Sunshine. The album is set to release on March 8, following her 2020 album, Positions, which also debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.

Grande’s musical prowess is not her only talent. The two-time Grammy Award winner is set to star in the musical fantasy Wicked alongside Cynthia Erivo on November 27. Grande will portray the character of Glinda Upland/Glinda the Good, a role that promises to showcase her acting skills in addition to her singing talent.

Personal Life On Set

While working on the set of Wicked, Grande found love in actor Ethan Slater, who plays Boq, a Munchkin who falls for Grande’s character, Glinda. This new relationship came after both Grande and Slater parted ways with their respective former spouses, Dalton Gomez and Lilly Jay.


Ariana Grande’s journey and success in the music industry is nothing short of phenomenal. With her latest single, “Yes, And?” she continues to create music that resonates with audiences around the world. The upcoming studio album Eternal Sunshine and her role in Wicked add to the excitement of being an Ariana Grande fan in 2022.

Whether it’s her music or personal life, Grande’s story is a testament to resilience, talent, and the power of creativity. As she continues to dominate the music charts and explore new ventures, fans and critics alike eagerly await what the pop star has in store for the future.

Music icon and fashion trendsetter, Rihanna, made a much-anticipated comeback to Paris Fashion Week in style. After a brief hiatus following the birth of her second son, the starlet graced Maria Grazia Chiuri’s Dior couture spring 2024 runway show with her bold presence.

The Dior Couture Spring 2024 Runway Show

The Dior Couture show, held at the famed Musée Rodin on January 22, welcomed Rihanna, who brought her signature twist to the Dior’s celebrated ‘New Look’ silhouette.

W Magazine describes the New Look’s shape as having “rounded, dramatic shoulders and a cinched waist that finishes off into some sort of statement skirt.”

Rihanna, affectionately known as RiRi, embraced this style, accentuating her waist with a chunky black belt and wearing a skirt that fell just beyond her knees.

Rihanna’s Style Statement

Rihanna upped the fashion ante with her unique interpretation of the ‘New Look’. She sported an off-the-shoulder jacket, and gave her outfit an edgy spin with a newsboy baseball cap, leather gloves, dramatic lip liner, and dazzling diamond jewelry.

Rihanna’s Fashion Journey

This Fashion Week appearance marked Rihanna’s first at a designer show since the birth of her second son, Riot Rose, in August. Her previous fashion excursion was Pharrell’s Louis Vuitton menswear debut in Paris last June.

Rihanna’s relationship with Dior dates back to 2015 when she made history as Dior’s first Black ambassador. Her last appearance at a Dior show was in the fall of 2022, during her pregnancy with her first son, RZA.

At that time, she made headlines for her audacious choice of a sheer dress.


Rihanna’s return to Paris Fashion Week and her distinct take on Dior’s ‘New Look’ silhouette once again underscores her status as a style icon. Whether it’s music, fashion, or life, Rihanna continues to walk her path, bold and unapologetic.
