Ariana Grande’s Grandmother – Nonna, 98 – Makes History as the Senior-Most Artist to Ever Hit the Hot 100

Ariana Grande Nonna


Nonna is credited on "Ordinary Things" from Grande's new Billboard 200-topping album, Eternal Sunshine.

Ariana Grande’s grandmother – Nonna, formally Marjorie Grande – makes history on the Billboard Hot 100 (dated March 23), as “Ordinary Things” debuts at No. 55.

With the arrival of the song (from Grande’s album Eternal Sunshine, which launches at No. 1 on the Billboard 200), Nonna, 98, becomes the senior-most artist ever to have appeared on the Hot 100, dating to the chart’s Aug. 4, 1958, start.

Nonna, billed as a featured artist on “Ordinary Things,” claims the record from the late Fred Stobaugh, who was 96 when “Oh Sweet Lorraine,” billed as by Green Shoe Studio featuring Jacob Colgan (the song’s vocalist) and Stobaugh (its writer), spent a week on the Hot 100 dated Sept. 14, 2013, at No. 42.

Late legend Tony Bennett now ranks third among acts with the most life experience on the Hot 100. Bennett was 85 when “Body and Soul,” with Amy Winehouse, logged a week on the list, at No. 87, dated Oct. 1, 2011. Bennett passed the late George Burns, who was 84 when, aptly per the subject matter, “I Wish I Was Eighteen Again” wrapped its chart run the week of March 22, 1980.
