It did not arrive until day three of the sales and streaming tracking weeks, but Lady Gaga’s “The Cure” still earns a Top 40 position on this week’s Billboard Hot 100.
Billboard confirms that the song debuts at #39 on this week’s chart.
Even given the abbreviated tracking period, “The Cure” still received its greatest amount of activity on the sales front. It takes #3 on this week’s US Digital Song Sales subchart.
It will be interesting to see how “The Cure” fares on next week’s chart. While it will benefit from increased radio support and a full week’s worth of sales and streaming activity, it will no longer have the “new song buzz” that powered its initial sales numbers.
