Chart Check: Christina Aguilera & Demi Lovato’s ‘Fall In Line’ Misses the Hot 100 With Debut

Published: Thursday 31st May 2018 by Rashad

May 16th brought with it the long-awaited arrival of ‘Fall In Line’ – a staunch feminist anthem powered by powerhouse vocalists Christina Aguilera and Demi Lovato.  Christened the lead single from the former’s June 15th-due eighth opus, ‘Liberation,’ the cut was instantly greeted with critical acclaim – a fanfare mirrored commercially as it almost immediately shot to #1 on digital sales tallies (click here to read more).

And, while that commercial support was further extended thanks to streaming, Youtube views, and later sales boosts afforded by the song’s first televised performance at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards (May 20), official chart rankings delivered some two weeks after ‘Fall’s premiere do not necessarily reflect the ballyhoo that preceded it.

Debuting at #1 on the Bubbling Under Charts (right outside of the Hot 100), ‘Fall’ – albeit starting off better than its predecessor, ‘Accelerate’ – is not exactly off to the best of beginnings.  However, with promo set to ramp up in the coming days ahead of ‘Liberation’s delivery to digital shelves, the Jon Bellion-produced number will undoubtedly see some benefit of the public showings.

Until then, check in to see who’s running the Hot 100 this week in our weekly ‘TGJ Chart Check’ segment:

    i hate to she’s about to flop cuz she’s a true talent…. but she suffered from identity crisis most of her career… never got a solid footing image wise… from dirty to pin up girl to bionic…. just all over the place…

    • Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine??‍♀️??‍♀️ May 31, 2018

      I think it’s he karma of her early on cockiness. She thought way too highly of herself way to early on and she just declined and declined and declined both popularity wise and vocally. Mary j blige and Mariah Carey clocked her early

      My girl Ella Mai is rising up the charts we it Bood Up. Yall support her please. Very few rnb songs make it this far these days and with a little more support she can be top 5. For Christina, her song is sounding better without Demi. She should release her solo version and let it work it’s way up the charts as a slow burner. The way the song is sung though it is only aimed at pop charts. Perhaps she should release a 3rd single before the album drops and secure good numbers debut week.

        i wish she would have saved 10000 hours until after Boo’d up came out….that would’ve been the perfect follow up

      • Jasmine (The Real Jasmine) May 31, 2018

        I agree 100 percent

      • Keith May 31, 2018

        Agreed on Ella Mai. She deserves success

    • Sweetnothings78 May 31, 2018

      That was Madonna’s entire career and that’s not hurt hers, rather the opposite

      • Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine??‍♀️??‍♀️ May 31, 2018

        Madonna did it cohesively and was successful. Christina confuses her fan base too much and has been not very successful for a long long time

    whaaaat? Cardi B’s two singles are out performing the garbage tracks that Nicki Minaj’s arrogant ass released? IM SHOCKED! *lol* — KARMA IS REAL & APPRECIATED!

  3. Meteorite May 31, 2018

    Well considering that RCA never sent the song to radio stations and that Christina isn’t promoting the song, its chart position is a small kind of accomplishment.

    • Jasmine (The Real Jasmine) May 31, 2018

      She performed at the Billboard awards and there is a new video for it. What more promotion do you need from a legendary artist like Christina?

      • #TrashMineExposed – 5-3-18 – 5-24-18 – 5-25-18 May 31, 2018

        DIRTY FLEE be gone.

      • Jasmine (The Real Jasmine) May 31, 2018

        Whose pic did Suicide steal in his latest troll account yall? It is illegal to use other people’s pics without their permission.

      • Big Mama May 31, 2018

        Assmine honey I think I remember u saying just last week you wouldn’t answer more of suicide’s provocations.
        Once more u enter the troll game then don’t come in the future crying wolf, nobody will support you further.
        I swear I seriously think you’re a 14/15 yo girl!

      • Jasmine (The Real Jasmine) May 31, 2018

        Somebody with a username “Big Mama” has no business calling anyone “Assmine”. Your ass is probably huge and likely smells. I did say I would not speak to Suicide and I meant that. Where exactly did I directly speak to that thing? Learn how to read dear before trying to check someone. Also, he is the one you should be coming for and not me!

  4. A May 31, 2018

    Love Christina she is a Legend

    • Jeans May 31, 2018

      Wow. I feel bad for her. I hope she starts to promote it soon

  5. Fancy BISH May 31, 2018

    Push through Demetria lol

  6. SMH May 31, 2018

    The song hasn’t been sent to radio, and she’s only performed it live once. It still has time to become a hit, everything doesn’t have to happen in 1 week then free fall the next week. All this means is that itunes positions mean nothing. Cardi B has songs all over itunes but still hasn’t even reaches 175K in sales yet or seen another #1 song either.

  7. Keith May 31, 2018

    I feel lime Christina is about to have another flop album. While likeable, none of these 3 songs are at the level of her talent. I hope there is better on the album…

  8. Seth May 31, 2018

    Radio sucks! I heard Selena can’t sing Gomez a dozen times today and not once have I heard this song. Christina needs to be reintroduced to the masses bc it’s not like she has a Madonna/Mariah/Sade LOYAL fan base for decades. Millennials are fickle and only recognize the NOW. She’s too talented and young to be considered a legacy act

  9. justafan May 31, 2018

    um cuz this song sux! Adele wannabe

  10. DanYiel Iman June 1, 2018

    WHat?!! That’s song is EVERYTHING!!

  11. Loyalty June 1, 2018

    I’m rooting for Xtina for Christina, her management or label always let her down on the promotion foot. She needs to be on every talk show performing Fall, I bought the single in U.K. She needs to do it ASAP as the song is epic, way better than anything on the charts, apart from Arianas and Cardis stuff, I dig. Christina come out an perform, on Ellen, Jimmy, she needs to hire Arianas manager.
