Update: Ariana Grande’s “Best Mistake” Hits #1, “Break Free” Top 10

Update: By mid-morning Tuesday, Ariana Grande’s “Best Mistake (featuring Big Sean)” had risen to the #1 slot on iTunes’ overall single sales chart.

To get there, it charged past Meghan Trainor’s “All About That Bass,” which had been in the #1 spot since last week. After temporarily slipping to #3 to allow Wiz Khalifa’s latest instant gratification release “So High (featuring Ghost Loft)” hit #2, “Bass” quickly returned to the runner-up slot.

The rise of “Best Mistake” was not the only favorable development for Grande Tuesday. By late morning, her radio single “Break Free (featuring Zedd)” bounced back into the Top 10 (and had reached #6 by Tuesday evening) to become the third Grande single in that illustrious group (alongside “Best Mistake” and “Bang Bang”).

Another release predictably meant another visit to the top ten for pop superstar Ariana Grande.

Following in the footsteps of singles “Problem (featuring Iggy Azalea),” “Break Free (featuring Zedd)” and “Bang Bang (with Jessie J and Nicki Minaj),” new “My Everything” track “Best Mistake” rocketed into the Top 10 shortly after debuting on the iTunes digital music store.

As of press time, the song, which finds Grande re-teaming with “Right There” and (uncredited) “Problem” collaborator Big Sean, was #9 on the iTunes overall single sales chart. It was expected to march towards the #1 spot as Tuesday progressed.

With “Best Mistake (featuring Big Sean)” now in the Top 10, Grande has two songs in the top ten and four in the top fifteen. “Bang Bang” remains #2 on the chart, while “Break Free” and “Problem” are slotted at #11 and #15, respectively.

All four songs appear on the deluxe edition of “My Everything,” which releases on August 25.
