Demi Lovato's 'Sober' & 'Solo' Debut on Streaming Songs Chart After Hospitalization
"Sober" gained by 30 percent in the tracking week.
In the first full streaming tracking week (July 27-Aug. 2) since the news broke, Lovato's "Sober," which she released just over a month earlier to detail her struggles with alcohol and drugs, debuts at No. 49 with 9.5 million streams, according to Nielsen Music, a 30 percent gain.
A notch above "Sober," "Solo" -- Clean Bandit's latest single on which Lovato is featured -- debuts at No. 48 with 10.6 million streams, up 14 percent.
Both songs had also gained in streams in the preceding tracking week (July 20-26), led by "Sober," which jumped 199 percent, while "Solo" advanced by 3 percent.
Concurrently, "Sober" reaches a new peak of No. 47 on the Billboard Hot 100, a week after re-entering at No. 56. "Solo" also hits new heights on the chart, rising 61-58. The latter continues to gain in radio airplay, bulleting at No. 37 on Pop Songs and debuting at No. 40 on Adult Pop Songs.
Lovato shared her first statement since her reported overdose (the details of which have not yet been publicly confirmed) on Aug. 5, posting a message on Instagram. "I now need time to heal and focus on my sobriety and road to recovery," she wrote in part. "The love you have all shown me will never be forgotten and I look forward to the day where I can say I came out on the other side.
"I will keep fighting."
