Notes Edit

  • ^ During Grande's performance of "God Is a Woman" on August 22, in Chicago, Scooter Braun interrupted her to announce that Sweetener will debut at No.1 on the US Billboard 200.
    • This was a tribute to Grande getting the No. 1 album with Yours Truly in 2013 and being interrupted by Braun and her mother during "Piano" at The Listening Sessions.
