For the first time since its release earlier this summer, Demi Lovato’s new single “Skyscraper” has finally landed itself in some new territory — the top 40. (Although the Mediabase chart of this name does in fact keep track of data beyond just 40 songs, the name “top 40” was given to symbolize the most popular hit music in the country.)
With a grand total of 771 — up 78 from the week before — Demi is now sitting at the prime position of #39 on the chart. While her song has not gained as quickly as some others on the chart, it has shown the sort of steady growth that could make it a long-term smash hit down the line.
The Mediabase Top 40 chart is also the basis for Billboard’s Pop Songs chart, and this gives the song an opportunity to be ranked higher than ever before. (It still has a way to go, though, before matching its #10 debut on the Hot 100 — which combines both radio airplay and digital sales.)
Are you hopeful that this jump into the top 40 is going to give “Skyscraper” even greater exposure? Stay tuned — we’ll have more airplay updates as they break.
