Ariana Grande's 'Problem' Set for Record Sales Debut

Ariana Grande's 'Problem' Set for Record Sales Debut | Hip-Hop | Scoop.it
Ariana Grande's "Problem," featuring Iggy Azalea, is on track to score one of the biggest sales debuts ever for a digital song.
Kadian Lacey's insight:

The Charts for some artist can be something beautiful but it can be a horrible sight for others. On the charts it seems like Ariana Grande is a problem just like the hit suggest. The charts also keep up with the records that are broken and the ones that are set at the same time. A lot of artist try not to get caught up in the whole sales thing but if you're as good as you say you are then sales shouldn't be a problem like i said before "numbers don't lie."
