-By Chinedu Nwaduru
Demi Lovato’s “Sober” has climbed up to No. 56 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, a week after she was hospitalized for overdosing on drugs.
After being absent from the chart for a week, Sober appeared on this week’s Hot 100, and earned 7.2 million streams and sold 18,000 tracks.
“Sober” got the attention of many, after the 25-year-old singer celebrated her sixth year of being sober from substance abuse. Having being public about her struggles and challenges over the years battling with self harm and eating disorder, the 25-year-old started her sobriety journey in March 2013, marking it every year as a milestone towards her new living. The lyrics which revealed that she had broken her six years of sobriety, apologises to her family and fans, accepting that she is human.
“Momma, I’m so sorry I’m not sober anymore/And daddy please forgive me for the drinks spilled on the floor,” she sings.
On July 24, Lovato was admitted at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, after being found unconscious in her home from substance overdose. Presently, Demi Lovato is said to be experiencing complications arising from the overdosing, but medical experts have assured family and fans of a full recovery.
Currently receiving support from her family and ex-boyfriend, Wilmer Valderrama, Lovato’s family are keener now than ever to get her to a rehab as soon as she is discharged from the hospital.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Demi now more than ever
