Sonny with a Chance is the soundtrack album for the Disney Channel Original Series of the same name. It was released on October 5, 2010 from Walt Disney Records. It debuted at no. 163 on the Billboard 200, making it Demi Lovato's lowest debut and peaking soundtrack there. It also debuted at number 3 on the US Kid Albums and at number 8 on the US Top Soundtracks. Two singles were released from the soundtrack. The first single to be released was "So Far, So Great" performed by Demi Lovato. The second single to be released was "Me, Myself and Time". The song managed to peak at number 6 on the US Billboard Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles chart.

Background

Four out of the nine total tracks on the soundtrack are performed by the series' star, Demi Lovato. Co-stars Tiffany Thornton and Sterling Knight each performed two tracks. Hollywood Records group Allstar Weekend appears once on the soundtrack. The theme song, "So Far, So Great", was written by Aris Archontis, Jeannie Lurie and Chen Neeman.

Critical Reception

The soundtrack received mixed reviews from music critics. Andrew Leahey of AllMusic gave a review: Released toward the end of the show’s second season, this soundtrack features nine songs performed by the cast of Sonny with a Chance. Lovato, who plays title character Allison "Sonny" Munroe, gets the most air time, singing lead on four songs (including the theme "So Far, So Great") and leaving co-stars Tiffany Thornton and Sterling Knight with two tunes apiece. Allstar Weekend, a Disney-affiliated emo band with ties to the show, also contribute a song. Thorton and Knight both deserve kudos for co-writing their own tunes, but that doesn’t overshadow the fact that most of the material here is formulaic pop/rock, stripped of anything unique or different from other Disney albums. The vocals are Auto-Tuned, a move that smoothes out the natural quirks in each singer’s voice, and the music is played by a group of session musicians who aren’t even listed in the credits. None of that really matters, of course—the kids who watch Sonny With a Chance don’t give a hoot about the name of the soundtrack’s bass player—but it doesn’t reflect well on Lovato, who has the most to lose as an aspiring musician when albums like this are released.
