Ariana Grande Benefits Greatly From Refreshed Billboard Albums Chart

My Everything, Ariana Grande's sophomore album, is back in the top 10 on the Billboard 200.

With singles including "Love Me Harder," the album rebounded with not only a boost from an American Music Award performance, but Billboard's recently refreshed Billboard 200.

As reported last month, Billboard changed the algorithm for the coveted chart by adding streaming data to the previous gauge of success — album sales.

That said Ariana Grande's "My Everything" soared 39-7 on the new chart with 72,000 total units.

"It moved 72,000 units for the week, heavily powered not just by album sales (47,000), but also track equivalent albums (19,000) and streaming equivalent albums (6,000)," Billboard reports. "Had the new Billboard 200's methodology not been in place, My Everything would have ranked at No. 16 (where it stands on the Top Album Sales chart). My Everything has been absent from the top 10 on the Billboard 200 since its third week on the list (dated Sept. 27, when it fell 4-11)."

This is a major feat for Grande, who has had runaway success since "Problem," the album's lead single, dropped over the summer featuring Iggy Azalea. It is unclear if Grande will push another single from this album, but that seems like a plausible option in the coming weeks.

As previously reported, Grande will be performing during "A Very Grammy Christmas," which will air on CBS Friday, December 5.
