It looks like Ariana Grande has a hit on her hands! The Victorious star’s single, ‘The Way’ – featuring rapper Mac Miller – went platinum this week, meaning that the song has sold over 1,000,000 copies.
“The Way went platinum today!!!! Mom and I are crying. THANK YOU SO MUCH,” Ariana tweeted. “Music has been my passion since I was a little girl and now I have my first platinum record at 19. No words to express my gratitude!!!!”
In an interview with MTV earlier this year, Ariana talked about the meaning of the lyrics. “It’s about just like, loving somebody so much that you just can’t describe it,” she said. “Like it’s just the best feeling in the world. The beginning phases of love when everything is so exciting and you just get butterflies.”
It’s been a big week for the actress/singer: The premiere of her new series Sam & Cat – with iCarly star Jennette McCurdy – was a huge success, pulling in over 4 million viewers. According to producer Dan Schneider, it was Nickelodeon’s biggest live-action launch in the past three years.
