Ariana Grande's 98-year-old Nonna makes Billboard history

Ariana Grande's 98-year-old grandmother, Marjorie Grande, has become the oldest artist to be featured on the Billboard Hot 100. The historic achievement came with the release of Ariana's seventh studio album, Eternal Sunshine, with the track "Ordinary Things" featuring Nonna's reminiscing about her late husband. The track debuted at #55 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, solidifying Nonna's place in history. Nonna has previously been featured on Ariana's songs like "Daydreamin'" and "Bloodline."
