Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber's "Stuck With U" Hits Number One on Billboard Hot 100
Replacing Doja Cat and Nicki Minaj’s “Say So” remix.
Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber‘s latest single, “Stuck With U,” has reached number one on this week’s Billboard Hot 100 chart. Streams and downloads of the track, which released earlier this month, benefit the First Responders Children’s Foundation, a non-profit providing scholarships and funds to the families of frontline workers fighting the coronavirus pandemic.
According to NME, the single reached 28.1 million U.S. streams and 108,000 sales in the tracking week, beating out Doja Cat and Nicki Minaj’s “Say So” remix. Grande, who has garnered a number one spot on the Hot 100 for three consecutive years, thanked fans for their support via an Instagram post. The singer captioned a screenshot of this week’s Billboard chart with, “there’s so much to celebrate today.” Grande also acknowledged that, while honored, she isn’t motivated by rankings. “Anyone who knows me or has followed me for a while knows that numbers aren’t the driving force in anything i do. i’m grateful to sing. grateful to have people who want to listen. grateful to even be here at all,” she wrote.

thank u to everybody who supported this song, this cause and made this happen. we love uuuuu so much. ? there’s so much to celebrate today. ? however, i would like to say a few things. anyone who knows me or has followed me for a while knows that numbers aren’t the driving force in anything i do. i’m grateful to sing. grateful to have people who want to listen. grateful to even be here at all. i didn’t have a number one for the first five years of my career and it didn’t upset me at all because from the bottom of my heart, music is everything to me. my fans are everything to me. i promise i couldn’t ask for another fucking thing. so with this celebration today, i would like to address a few things which i don’t usually do (i don’t give my energy to drama or strange accusations normally but this has gone a little too far)…my fans bought the song. JUSTIN’S fans bought the song. OUR fans bought this song (never more than four copies each, AS THE RULES STATE). they are ride or die motherfuckers and i thank god every day that i have them in my life. not just when they fight for us to win (even when i ask them not to as i did this week) but because they’re some of the greatest people i know. sales count for more than streams. u can not discredit this as hard as u try. to anybody that is displeased with their placement on the chart this week or who is spending their time racking their brain thinking of as many ways as they can to discredit hardworking women (and only the women for some reason…..), i ask u to take a moment to humble yourself. be grateful you’re even here. that people want to listen to u at all. it’s a blessed position to be in. i’ve had a lot of “almost number ones” in my career and i never said a goddamn thing because I FEEL GRATEFUL TO EVEN BE HERE. TO WANT TO BE HEARD AT ALL …. and you should feel that way too. congratulations to all my talented ass peers in the top ten this week. even number 3. ? and thank u to @billboard for this honor. and thank u to everybody who helped us raise a lot of money for a very important cause this week. love u all a lot.
