Tracks like 'One Last Time', 'Break Free' and the huge 'Problem' with Iggy Azalea has seen the 22-year-old from Florida catapulted into the stratosphere since breaking through in 2014. And it's hardly surprising after her first single, the fifth highest digital debut for a female artist on the way to the top of the charts in 85 countries.
And last year, the former Nickelodeon star was the first performer to have three songs in the top six of Billboard's Digital Songs Chart since Michael Jackson, posthumously in 2009.
Recently she returned to her acting roots and starred as part of an all-star cast - including Jamie Lee Curtis, Nick Jonas and Lea Michele - in Scream Queens. Although Ariana's character died earlier in the series, her name appears in credits for the seventh episode suggesting she'll return as a ghost. Meanwhile it's been reported that her mother manager has taken a backseat in handling her daughter's career decisions as the former child star takes more control of her brand.
And with her teasing the release of her fresh single 'Focus' this weekend, perhaps we'll see a revamped version of Ariana by the time she makes it to the country's capital.
