Ariana Grande has added another impressive notch to her ever-growing list of achievements.

After literally breaking YouTube with her music video for “Thank u, Next,” Grande has taken over the No. 1 spot as Spotify’s most streamed artist worldwide.

According to Billboard, Grande reached the Spotify milestone after surpassing the mark of 46.9 million monthly listeners, overtaking Selena Gomez for the No. 1 spot. She officially added the title on Friday, November 30.

The 25-year-old singer took to social media following the news, and tweeted, “Sheesh. thank u.”

This news follows the impressive YouTube milestone Grande achieved after she dropped her highly anticipated “Thank u, Next” music video. The video, which sees Grande pay homage to 2000s rom-coms and a surprise cameo by Kris Jenner, set the set the record as the most-viewed video on the platform. The video accumulated 46 million views in just 24 hours more than the previous record holder K-pop group BTS, who accumulated 45.9 million views for their Idol music video in August.

While there’s no doubt it has been a whirlwind of a year for Ariana Grande, is seems that she’s working hard to end it on a high note.
