Jennifer Lawrence Becomes a Pop Star With Success of “Hanging Tree,” Hunger Games Soundtrack Song

Jennifer Lawrence can add pop star to her growing list of talents and accolades.

The Oscar-winning actress, 24, found herself amongst the likes of One Direction, Taylor Swift, and Meghan Trainor this week, climbing music charts worldwide with “The Hanging Tree,” a track off the soundtrack to The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1.

Lawrence currently holds the No. 12 spot on ARIA Australian Top 50 Singles Chart and the No. 14 spot on the Official U.K. Singles Chart. The chart performance puts the star behind 1D, Swift, and Trainor, but above heavyweights such as Nicki Minaj, Lorde, and Sam Smith.

Led by composer James Newton Howard, “The Hanging Tree” is also performing well stateside. Billboard reports that the track could move 150,000 copies, making it a contender for the top 40 of Billboard’s Hot 100 chart.
