Powered by a strong opening week sales performance, Demi Lovato’s “Sober” earns a spot on the Billboard Hot 100.

Specifically, the song starts at #58.

The Hot 100 ranks songs based on combined activity from sales, streams and radio airplay. “Sober,” as noted, generated the lion’s share of its activity on the sales front.

While it also received some attention on the streaming front, it was a virtual non-factor at radio this past week.

Lovato moved onto the personal, emotional “Sober” after releasing two singles (“Sorry Not Sorry” and the title track) from “Tell Me You Love Me.”
