"Next" also drew 11.3 million in all-format radio audience in the week ending Nov. 11.
"God Is a Woman" and "No Tears" are from Grande's third Billboard 200 No. 1 album, Sweetener, which debuted atop the list dated Sept. 1, while "Next" is, as of now, a stand-alone track, with the song's lyrics referencing past relationships with, among others, Big Sean, ex-finance Pete Davidson and the late Miller.
