Alessia Cara's "Scars to Your Beautiful" is finally making strides on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart after weeks of radio airplay and activity and it is linked back to the announcement that she will perform on NBC's "Saturday Night Live." The performance will take place on Feb. 4 which will be in the next tracking week, surely to give the song even more of a bump (the current tracking week ends on Feb. 2. In the meantime, "Scars" has reached the top 10 on the Jan. 31 chart refresh.
"Scars to Your Beautiful" climbs from No. 13 to No. 10 on the chart that compiles streaming data, digital downloads and radio airplay, the latter being tracked Monday through Sunday versus the former two being tracked from Friday through Thursday. On Digital Songs, the song places at a low No. 25 with only 22,000 in sales but shoots up the streaming chart. On Streaming Songs, "Scars" bolts from No. 37 to No. 25 with 12.6 million hits on all official platforms including on-demand clicks through Spotify and YouTube video hits. It's airplay that Alessia Cara stays strong. On Radio Songs, the song is at No. 2 with 128 million impressions in an all-genre format, only down one percent.
Cara's latest hit is her second top 10 on the chart after "Here" peaked at No. 5 in February 2016. "Scars" is spending 22 weeks on the chart before reaching the top tier but does, however, hold onto the No. 1 spot on the Pop Songs tally, also known as Mainstream Top 40 and is radio airplay only.
"Scars" is the third single taken from Cara's debut album Know-It-All released in November 2015. It followed "Wild Things" which was serviced to contemporary radio and hit a modest No. 50 on the Hot 100. The fourth single "Seventeen" was released on Dec. 15, 2016 with a music video to accompany it featuring friends and family. The song has not received an impact date as of yet, however.
