Ariana Grande has taken over the world of Fortnite.
UPDATE (08/13): Following the stellar Rift Tour experience on Fortnite last weekend, Ariana Grande's music streams hit a spike in plays for the songs from her set.
According MRC Data, streams of Grande's music rose by 123% between August 5 and August 8 (the weekend of the Rift Tour), racking in 42,000 to 93,000 streams. Plays of the Dangerous Woman track 'Be Alright' brought the '34+35' singer the big bucks, garnering over 230,000 streams across the weekend.
Doubling as an interactive experience for players of the free-to-play Battle Royale game, the Rift Tour took fans on a journey across Grande's hits, set in magical and whimsical worlds. Despite the overwhelming success of the online event, Fornite's developer Epic Games have yet to share the number of players who joined in for the experience.
Included in her digital performance were 'raindrops (an angel cried)', '7 rings', 'Be Alright', 'R.E.M.', her Mac Miller collaboration 'The Way', and 'positions'.
The Rift Tour featuring Ariana Grande is now available for streaming via the pop singer's official YouTube page. Relive it below:
