Grande released her debut album, Yours Truly, in 2013. A 1950s doo-wop-influenced pop and R&B album, it peaked atop the US Billboard 200 and spawned her first US top-ten single, "The Way", featuring rapper Mac Miller. Her second studio album, My Everything (2014), continued the pop-R&B sound of its predecessor and incorporated EDM into a few tracks. It topped the Billboard 200 and featured four US top-ten singles—"Problem", "Break Free", "Bang Bang", and "Love Me Harder". Grande's pop-R&B styles extended on her third studio album, Dangerous Woman (2016), which was her first number-one album in the UK. For her next two studio releases, Sweetener (2018) and Thank U, Next (2019), Grande experimented with trap, while maintaining her characteristic pop-R&B tones. The former won a Grammy Award for Best Pop Vocal Album, and the latter broke several streaming records. Grande became the first solo artist to hold the top three spots on the Billboard Hot 100 simultaneously when "Thank U, Next" , "7 Rings", and "Break Up with Your Girlfriend, I'm Bored" did so in 2019. She is also the first act to have the lead singles from each of their first five studio albums debut within the top ten in the US.
