On March 8, Ariana Grande officially dropped her long-awaited seventh studio album “Eternal Sunshine,” marking her return after over three years. With the title drawing inspiration from the 2004 film "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind," Grande's latest full-length album (LP) features 13 tracks produced by herself, Ilya Salmanzadeh, and Max Martin.

In a statement made earlier this year, Ariana Grande gave fans a sneak peek of "Eternal Sunshine," describing it as a collection of "different heightened pieces of the same story of the same experience." Not letting her fans wait for long, the tracklist was unveiled one month before the release date on the artist's Instagram post, promising a diverse range of songs including "Don’t Wanna Break Up Again," "True Story," and "The Boy Is Mine." The album's lead single, "Yes, And?," debuted at Number One on the Hot 100, on January 12, setting the stage for Grande's triumphant return to the charts. 

To celebrate the album's release, Grande treated fans to a music video for the track "We Can’t Be Friends (Wait for Your Love)," premiered on the same date as her album release. The song debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Global 200 and Billboard Global Excl. US charts and since has become a sensation all over social media platforms.

The album itself also gathered some impressive achievements since the very first week of its release. According to Billboard, “Eternal Sunshine” spends a second week at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart (dated March 30), after debuting atop the tally a week ago. The set earned 100,500 equivalent album units in the U.S. in the tracking week ending March 21 (down 56%). It’s the third Grande album to have logged a personal-best two weeks at No. 1. Her last two full-length studio sets, “Positions” (2020) and “Thank U, Next” (2019), both spent their first two weeks at No. 1. Merely a few days after the album's release, an expanded version of “Eternal Sunshine” has since been dropped, featuring four bonus tracks featuring Troye Sivan and Mariah Carey.

After a long hiatus of more than three years and with the success of “Eternal Sunshine, Ariana Grande reaffirms her status as a top-list vocalist and songwriter-storyteller, leaving fans eagerly anticipating what the future holds for this pop sensation.
