Selena Gomez’s “Lose You To Love Me” Makes Impressive Chart Debut
Points were made! Selena Gomez’s “Lose You To Love Me” debuts at number 15 on the Billboard Hot 100 — based on two days of streaming and downloads. With the emotional ballad still number one on iTunes, rapidly gaining in pop radio airplay and sitting pretty in the top five of US Spotify, it’s destined to soar even higher in its first full tracking week. The question now is, how high can it go? At present, “Good For You” and “Same Old Love” share the honor of being Selena’s highest-charting single (they both peaked at number five).
So far, “Lose You To Love Me” has been warmly embraced by critics, who praised its message of self-healing, and general music fans, who are gravitating to the song’s lyrics and stripped-back production. While “Lose You To Love Me” is a fairly safe bet for the top 10, it will be interesting to see how high “Look At Her Now” goes. Released as a thank-you to diehard Selenators, the song has gone viral thanks to a glamorous video and memes courtesy of fellow pop stars like Lewis Capaldi, who lands at number one this week with “Someone You Loved.” Listen to Selena’s smash hits below.
