She’s never had a single chart higher than No32 in the UK, but Demi Lovato could finally score her first smash hit on British turf this week.
Lovatics over here had faced a long wait to get their hands on her new single ‘Heart Attack’, which was released in most international territories as soon as it was first premiered online.
Over here, however, it was only made available on iTunes at midnight last night… and it’s taken just eleven hours to soar into the Top 5.
If the song manages to keep up the momentum all week, it should give the X Factor USA judge her first UK Top 10 hit when the overall Official Chart is unveiled next Sunday.
At time of writing, ‘Heart Attack’ is No5 – with scope to go higher. It needs to overtake Rudimental, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, Passenger and the inescapable Daft Punk chart-topper if it’s going to go all the way to the summit.
Elsewhere, StooShe have already cruised to just outside the Top 10 with ‘Slip’, despite being snubbed by BBC Radio 1’s playlisting team, and Tich is already at No15 with her debut ‘Dumb’.
The iTunes charts is an automatically-upated representation of the last 24 hours’ sales on the online store. They contribute heavily to the general Official Singles Chart, which also takes other download stores into consideration, as well as physical CD copies.
ALSO, Demi was seen arriving into LAX Airport in Los Angeles, CA (May 11). More pics HERE.
