Ariana Grande’s “thank u, next” recently hit #1 on the US Spotify and Apple Music charts.

Tuesday, it also reached the pinnacle of the all-genre iTunes song sales chart.

“thank u, next” occupies the chart’s #1 position as of 2:05PM ET Tuesday.

Its ascent to #1 coincides with what appears to be an adjustment to Kris Wu’s “Antares.” Tracks from the album, which had occupied the upper reaches of the chart (including the Top 3 spots) since Friday, suddenly appear below the Top 100.

The LP itself, meanwhile, has fallen from #1 to #114 on the all-genre album sales chart.

iTunes has not formally commented on speculation surrounding the album’s strong early performance.
