The popstar’s hit track was the closing song of the show
In the wake of the suicide bomb attack that happened after Ariana Grande’s performance at Manchester Arena – in which 22 were killed and 64 injured – fans have been campaigning for her 2015 hit One Last Time to hit number one on the charts. The campaign pays tribute to the lives lost in the attack.
The dance ballad has since risen up the iTunes chart, and it’s been announced today (25 May) by the Official Charts Company that the My Everything single will re-enter the Official Chart Top 40. The track climbs from outside the Top 200 to Number 35 this week. In June 2015, the track peaked at Number 24.
Grande was unharmed in the incident and has since tweeted the statement: “From the bottom of my heart, I am so, so sorry. I don’t have the words.”
Six dates from her Dangerous Woman tour have been cancelled, including her dates at London’s O2 Arena, which was initially set for today and tomorrow (26 May). Grande’s team have issued a statement, saying time is needed to “assess the situation and pay our proper respects to those lost.” The tour will resume in Zurich, Switzerland, on 5 June.
You can find out where One Last Time places on the Official Charts on 26 May, at 5.45PM via their site.
