Billboard has just announced that their 2018 Woman of the Year is… Ariana Grande!

In a statement, Vice President of Content, Ross Scrano said, “Ariana Grande is a star on her own terms, never bending to any particular musical trend or path in the industry. Certain in her convictions, she consistently stands up for herself and her decisions in a world that often isn’t hospitable to that sort of strength in young women. She’s got guts, she’s making some of the best music of her career, and she’s absolutely deserving of Woman of the Year.”

We all know Ariana Grande has been through one heck of a year but we’d be lying if we said she didn’t handle it like a boss!

Earlier this week, Grande dropped her latest single, “thank u, next” and it has made history itself! The song is reported to be the first pop single to reach No.1 on Apple Music’s Top 100 U.S. Chart and their Top 100 Global Chart.

Congratulations Ariana Grande, what an amazing accomplishment!
