As her tune “Fancy,” featuring Charli XCX, ascends to the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart, and Ariana Grande”s “Problem,” featuring Azalea, rises 3-2, she becomes the only artist other than the Fab Four in the 56-year history of the chart to have her first two Hot 100 singles reach No. 1 and 2 concurrently. Her gain pushes John Legend”s “All of Me” 1-3.

There”s also good news for another newcomer:  Norwegian duo Nico & Vinz, whose first charting single, “Am I Wrong” zooms 17-8.
