Ariana Grande‘s “thank u, next” — which may or may not have the best music video of 2018 — has just returned to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 charts, and in doing so has smashed another pretty impressive record. Not only is the track’s video the most watched video on YouTube and VEVO, but she now holds the accolade of having the “biggest streaming week ever for a woman” artist. Check the announcement below.

As Billboard reports, Grande’s domination is thanks to 93.8 million U.S. streams in the week ending December 6, which soars past the 84.5 million record previously held by Taylor Swift’s “Look What You Made Me Do.”

“thank u, next” held the number one spot on the Top 100 for three weeks after dropping on November 17. Revisit the video, which pays homage to a myriad of teen movie classics, below.
