Hold on, Christina Grimmie. You’re going to the upper reaches of the iTunes Single Sales Chart.

Performed on Monday’s Top 10 edition of “The Voice,” Grimmie’s rendition of Drake’s “Hold On, We’re Going Home” exploded into the iTunes Top Ten. Currently number eight, it will surely remain in the top ten when the voting closes at 12PM ET.
