ARIANA'S "RINGS" GETS STREAMING BLING

The first-week streams for Ariana Grande's "7 Rings" (Republic) look to be in the vicinity of 55m. That gives her the biggest single-song streaming bow ever for a female artist, not to mention the second-biggest first-week on-demand streams for an artist ever, as well as the third-biggest for any song (behind "God's Plan" and "Nonstop" by labelmate Drake). Post Malone's "Psycho" (also on Republic) earned 45m in its first week.

Add 100k or so track sales and you're looking at a song project debut of about 500k. Make this "Rings" golden.

Grande's brand-new set, thank u, next, is due on 2/8, two days before Grammy night; meanwhile, her songs "thank u, next" and "Breathin" both recently ascended to the Top 5 at Pop radio while the rocket "Rings" is already trending Top 20. 

Monte Lipman, Scooter Braun and teams say that the above stats are a few of their favorite things.

How big will this one get?
