Love Lockdown (4:30)

Cover of 808s & Heartbreak

From 808s & Heartbreak and 36 other releases

It is the first single off West’s 808s & Heartbreak.

Billboard confirmed that “Love Lockdown” sold 213,000 digital downloads in only four full days of release, therefore causing it to make a “Hot Shot Debut” at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 and a “Hot Shot Debut” on the Pop 100 at #13 and in early December it reached #10. This is West’s highest debut of his career, and the second highest debut on the Hot 100 of 2008, tied with David Cook’s “The Time of My Life”. “Love Lockdown” is also only the tenth song of the millennium to debut in the top three, and only the second song by someone not from American Idol.

In Europe, “Love Lockdown” peaked at #8 on the UK Singles Chart, and #4 on the Irish Singles Chart. It also debuted at #38 in Italy and #39 in Sweden. In Australia the song debuted in its first week at #37 on the ARIA Charts and has peaked so far at #19. In New Zealand it has peaked at #11 so far on the RIANZ chart. On the German Singles Chart “Love Lockdown” debuted at #8, giving West his first top ten and highest charting single to date there.

On 3 December, 2008 Kanye stated on his blog that Love Lockdown has sold over 1.3 Million on iTunes.

I'm not loving you, the way I wanted to
What I had to do, had to run from you
I'm in love with you, but the vibe is wrong
And that haunted me, all the way home
