Lady Gaga’s “The Cure” Debuts At #39 On Billboard Hot 100

Lady Gaga’s new single starts inside the Top 40.

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.
