Billboard has yet to release its complete Hot 100 chart, but the news is already rosy for Ariana Grande, Iggy Azalea and Charli XCX.

Thanks to the success of Grande’s “Problem,” which features Azalea, and Azalea’s “Fancy,” which features XCX, all three will reach career high marks on the music publication’s definitive chart for single tracks.

Besting the #9 peak reached by breakthrough single “The Way,” Grande’s “Problem” debuts at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100. It also represents a high mark for Azalea, whose reached her previous career summit last week when “Fancy” hit #7.

By rising to #4 this week, the Azalea-Charli XCX track also gives the latter a personal best. She had previously reached #7 as a featured artist on Icona Pop’s “I Love It.”
