Ariana Grande is involved with yet another strong digital sales performer.

According to Billboard, her “Bang Bang” collaboration with Jessie J and Nicki Minaj was the week’s best-selling digital song with 230,000 first week sales.

Enough for a convincing #1 debut on Billboard’s Digital Songs chart, the impressive total also ranks as 2014’s second largest first week download count. Only Ariana Grande’s “Problem (featuring Iggy Azalea),” which moved a strong 438,000 in its inaugural week, got off to a stronger start.

After entering the Top 10 last week, Meghan Trainor’s “All About That Bass” rockets to #2 on this week’s edition of Billboard’s Digital Songs chart. It moved 169,000 last week.

Currently #1 on iTunes, it is already enjoying another strong sales week.

Maroon 5’s “Maps” surged to #3 on Digital Songs with 139,000 sales. Sam Smith’s “Stay With Me” and MAGIC!’s “Rude” took the final two positions of the Top 5 with 138,000 and 134,000.

Jason Aldean’s “Burnin’ it Down” followed with 115,000 in week two, while Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy (featuring Charli XCX)” was the week’s seventh-best-seller with 107,000 copies.

Azalea also appears on #8 song “Black Widow,” which makes its first top ten digital appearance with 100,000 paid downloads. Sia’s “Chandelier” (97,000) and Maroon 5’s “It Was Always You” (95,000) claim the final two top ten positions.
