Ariana Grande Says She Feels a ‘Joyful, Human Connection’ After Album’s Success

Ariana Grande is feeling grateful after the success of her new album Eternal Sunshine.

On Monday, the singer shared a post on Instagram celebrating the LP after it debuted at Number One on the Billboard 200 and its single “We Can’t Be Friends” also debuted at Number One on the Hot 100.

“I just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart,” the singer wrote on Instagram. “It’s impossible to put into words what I’ve been feeling this week. This album is most special to me for many reasons and just holds so much.”

“Sharing it has re-opened a lot of little and big feelings alike and it has been an emotional week in many ways,” Grande continued. “But your overwhelmingly loving response to it all has made me feel such joyful, human connection and comfort. Just wanted to say I love and appreciate you all more than one can say.”

The singer also apologized for posting so much about the album (“I feel self-conscious about that,” she wrote), and ended her note, by writing: “It is, as it always has been, my greatest honor to grow with you … let us promise to keep going!”

Grande released her album Eternal Sunshine on March 8, and accompanied the release with a music video for Track 10, “We Can’t Be Friends (Wait for Your Love).” The album also included songs such as “Bye,” “Don’t Wanna Break Up Again,” and “Supernatural” featuring Troye Sivan.

In the comments of her new post, her mom Joan shared how proud she was of her daughter. “So incredibly deserved!! Your musicianship and acting is extraordinary!! I love you! Congratulations!” she wrote.

Eternal Sunshine marked Grande’s fourth consecutive Number One album. Of the seven albums she’s released since her debut in 2013, all but Dangerous Woman have topped the album chart. Eternal Sunshine debuted with 194.92 million on-demand official streams of the set’s songs, along with 77,000 sales in the week ending March 14, according to Luminate, which powers the Billboard charts.


It’s the biggest opening for an album in 2024 and the only album this year to top the list with more than 200,000 units.

Rolling Stone‘s Brittany Spanos called Eternal Sunshine “a gorgeously exposed journey to the end of her world — or at least what she believes to be the end” in a review of the album.
