It was a very scary Tuesday for fans of Island superstar Demi Lovato, who became the lead entertainment story due to her hospitalization following an apparent overdose. According to the most recent reports, the singer is “awake and with her family”, per a representative. Still, this prompted a massive spike for her recent song “Sober”, released a little over a month ago, a very poignant tune about her relapse following six years of sobriety. Upon release, Lovato’s single hit #1 on iTunes in the U.S. and charted in nearly 90 countries globally; now, “Sober” is back on the all-genre chart in about three dozen countries, currently at #2 on the U.S. list. The track is active on other platforms as well, with totals of over 12.5 million views for a lyric video on YouTube and 17.3 million streams on Spotify. Overall, much of Lovato’s catalog is on the rise globally, like her most recent singles “Sorry Not Sorry” and the title track from Tell Me You Love Me, as its parent album remains in the top 50 on iTunes here. However, many of Lovato’s powerful ballads from prior releases, like 2011 single “Skyscraper” and 2015 single “Stone Cold”, as well as 2013 cut “Warrior”, are also striking a chord with fans everywhere. We all wish her a speedy recovery. (Images courtesy of Safehouse, Hollywood and Island Records)
