Jennifer Lawrence: Oscar-winner, philanthropist and now top-20 pop star.

The actress’ recording of “The Hanging Tree” has landed at No. 14 on the Official U.K. Singles Chart, published Sunday, and it’s new at No. 12 on ARIA’s Australian Top 50 Singles Chart.

The song appears on the soundtrack for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1, which has been omnipresent since it enjoyed its world premiere Nov. 10 at the Odeon cinema in London’s Leicester Square.

“The Hanging Tree” has outperformed expectations for its first week on the U.K. sales chart. The song, performed by James Newton Howard featuring Lawrence, had shaped for a solid chart berth when the Official Charts Company announced it had come in at No. 29 on the mid-week sales.

Lawrence stars as Katniss Everdeen in the dystopian Hunger Games films. The latest in the series is dominating the U.K. box office, scoring the year’s biggest opening weekend with $19.9 million.

Lawrence is hoping to replicate her chart success in the U.S. She’s aiming for a top-40 bow with “The Hanging Tree” on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart.

The song was written by Suzanne Collins (author of The Hunger Gamesseries of books) and The Lumineers’ Jeremiah Fraites and Wesley Schultz. It’s heard in the film first as an a cappella performance by Lawrence (in character as Katniss), before she is joined by a choir and an orchestra.
