With her hit song, “The Way“, which went double-platinum and reached #1 on the iTunes Overall Top Songs Chart, Grande was already well on her way to much success. Now, in 2014, Grande is making an even bigger name for herself with the first single off of her sophomore album, “Problem“.

Also known for the recent hit featuring Chris Brown, “Love More“, Minaj has the highest digital sales for any female hip-hop artist in history and has become a powerhouse icon in the music industry. From one idol to another, Minaj tied Mariah Carey for the most hot 100 entries on Billboard’s HOT 100 Chart with a total of 44, in 2012. With two number one albums, over 50 million in digital sales as a solo and featured artist, Minaj and Adele are the only two artists to sell 1 million copies of five different songs in the span of one year.
