In a very short time, superstar Demi Lovato has made quite a name for herself as a singer, actress, and philanthropist with three studio albums, four movies, and numerous television series to her credit.
Demi Lovato has had a phenomenal 2013, spurred by Heart Attack, the first single off her recently released fourth album, Demi, which debuted at No. 1 on the iTunes chart in more than 25 countries (including the U.S.) and No. 12 on the Billboard Hot 100.
The single achieved gold status in the U.S. and Canada within just four weeks of its release, and achieved platinum status in the United States and Canada within just 10 weeks of its release. Heart Attack also became the most added song on Top 40 radio in the U.S. the week it premiered.
Demi, which was released in May, debuted at No. 3 in the U.S., making it Lovato's fourth Top 10-debuting album. Demi has reached No. 1 on iTunes in more than 50 countries since its debut. Lovato co-wrote nearly every song on Demi, along with a team of top producers and writers, including TheSUSPEX (Mitch Allan and Jason Evigan), Priscilla Renea, Ryan Tedder, Emanuel “Eman” Kiriakou, Carl Falk, Rami Yacoub, Savan Kotecha, Ali Tamposi, The Monsters and The Strangerz, Jonas Jeberg, Anne Preven and Matt Rad.
Give Your Heart a Break, Lovato's second and final single off of her third studio album, Unbroken (2011), received critical acclaim from contemporary music critics, who praised the production, as well as Lovato's vocals. Give Your Heart a Break spent 32 weeks on the Hot 100 in 2012 and reached No. 1 on the Billboard Pop Songs chart. The song, which was officially certified platinum in the U.S., also reached No. 1 status at both Mediabase and Broadcast Data Systems (BDS) in the Top 40 format. The first single off of Unbroken, Skyscraper, debuted at No. 1 on the iTunes chart, No. 2 on the Billboard Hot Digital Singles chart and No. 10 on the Billboard Hot 100. Skyscraper also was officially certified platinum in the United States.
