Meanwhile, the platinum-selling "My Everything" garnered a Grammy Award nomination for "Best Pop Vocal Album" and spawned the six times-platinum hit "Problem." Upon the single's release, Ariana became "the youngest woman to debut with over 400K sold first-week," while the song ranked as the 5th "highest digital song debut for a female artist" and 9th highest ever.

In 2013, she was named "Best New Artist" at the American Music Awards. Other accolades followed with Ariana winning "Favorite Breakout Artist" at the PEOPLE'S CHOICE AWARDS 2014, the "Young Influencer Award" at the iHeartRadio Music Awards, the "Radio Disney Chart Topper Award," "Choice Female Artist" and "Choice Single" "Problem" at the 2014 Teen Choice Awards, and more. At the 2014 MTV VMAS, "Problem" was named "Best Pop Video" as well. In November, Ariana took home the award for "Favorite Female Artist - Pop/Rock" at the 2015 American Music Awards. 2016 sees her release her mega-anticipated third full-length album, "Dangerous Woman," driven by the title track which captured No. 1 on both iTunes Overall Top Songs Chart and Top Pop Songs Chart minutes after release. "Dangerous Woman" also debuted in the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 earning her the distinction of BECOMING the first artist to debut in the top 10 with the lead single from each of her first three albums.
