As previously reported, “Harlem Shake,” the viral smash from Baauer, spends a third week at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, although its massive streaming totals weaken almost by half. Who else shakes things up this week on the Hot 100 and other song charts?
— Demi Lovato: “Heart Attack” blasts in as the Hot 100’s top debut at No. 12, spurred by first-week sales of 215,000, according to Nielsen SoundScan, as it launches at No. 4 on Hot Digital Songs. The sum is the second-best this year for a song in its first week of release, trailing only Justin Timberlake’s “Suit & Tie,” which arrived with 315,000 (Feb. 2). The lead single from her forthcoming fourth album also starts at No. 70 on Radio Songs (15 million, according to Nielsen BDS) and just below Streaming Songs (953,000, which includes plays of the song’s audio and lyric videos).
The debut of Demi Lovato’s official lyric video for her newest single “Heart Attack” leads to a 20-12 rise on the Social 50. The track was released via an interactive online campaign where fans unlocked the clip by tweeting the song’s lyrics along with the hashtag “#UnlockHeartAttack.” The video received nearly 500,000 views in the three days remaining in the charting week since its March 1 debut. The audio of the song, released to her VEVO page on February 25, has received over 3.7 million views to date. The push has helped Lovato gain 343,000 new fans overall during the week. “Heart Attack” debuts at No. 12 on the Billboard Hot 100 this week, with 215,000 digital copies sold according to Nielsen Soundscan.
