Multi-platinum Hollywood Records recording artist, Demi Lovato, has scored her first # 1 radio single with her smash hit “Give Your Heart A Break.” The song is #1 at both Media Base and BDS in the Top 40 format. (Add spin info – currently 98 million, hoping we cross 100 million shortly.) The single shipped to radio last December and steadily grew with the efforts of Hollywood Records’ tenacious promotion staff, as well as several high profile TV appearances, magazine covers, sales initiatives, online marketing, and licensing placements. Disney Music Group Executive Vice President, Ken Bunt, said, “We congratulate Demi on this fantastic achievement. She has had a remarkable year, and she’s worked tirelessly with our entire staff to reach this milestone.”
Demi’s wave of success only continues to swell. This Thursday, she will be performing “Give Your Heart A Break” on MTV’s Video Music Awards, for which she is nominated for her first ever VMA for “Best Video With A Message.” On September 12, she will take her seat as a judge on Fox’s X-Factor alongside Britney Spears, Simon Cowell and LA Reid. On September 13, Demi will perform, and sit down for an extensive interview on the debut week of Katie Couric’s new ABC show. Demi wrapped her sold-out North American tour this weekend in Salem, Oregon.
