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.
