Demi Lovato Teams Up with G-Eazy on New Single “Breakdown”

Demi Lovato is breaking down their personal demons…

The 29-year-old half-Mexican American singer, songwriter, and actor has joined voices with G-Eazy to release the new single “Breakdown,” as well as the track’s official music video.

The Daniel CZ-directed music video first captures G-Eazy and Lovato coming face-to-face with the headlines they’ve made over the years, from Lovato’s 2018 heroin overdose to G-Eazy’s 2018 arrest on charges of assault, drug possession and resisting arrest at a Swedish club, which appear on the mirrors in front of the artists.

G-Eazy made headlines this week after he was arrested and charged Monday for allegedly assaulting two men outside of a New York hotel but was later released.

The “No Limit” MC continues watching his headlines play out on the television in his disheveled room, standing around in disarray while somberly rapping, “Been fighting my demons, but they ain’t fighting fair/ But I keep saying that ‘Everything’s alright, I swear’/ All alone in a dark space, ain’t no light in there/ What’s f—ed up is I might actually like it there.”

Meanwhile, the Dancing With the Devil singer pleads in the raw chorus, “I’m in the middle of a breakdown, baby I need you/ I need you/ Oh, I’m in the middle of a storm now, baby/ I need you/ I need you to come over, tell me this’ll be over,” while the headlines specific to them taunt Lovato all over the walls in the next room.

But Lovato and G-Eazy prove they can endure their personal storms together.

The Grammy-nominated pop star hinted “big things coming” with G-Eazy when they posted a picture of the two artists while on set of the “Breakdown” music video back in August.

“Breakdown” will be featured on the Bay Area rapper’s upcoming album, These Things Happen Too, which is due on September 24 via BPG/RVG/RCA Records. It will serve as the sequel to his 2014 album These Things Happen, which peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard 200.

Scheduled guests include Jameela Jamil, Lucy Hale, Nikita Dragun and experts in various fields. See the first-look photo above.

“Some conversations can be difficult, but I’ve never been one to shy away from speaking candidly about things,” Lovato said. “We wanted to create a space that normalizes living your own truth – where people can speak, engage and more importantly, learn, together. There’s something therapeutic about having raw discussions that people can relate to and with The Demi Lovato Show no topics are off limits and opinions are welcome. I’m so excited for people to see how these conversations unfold on the Roku Channel.”

The 28-year-old half-Mexican American singer/actress has made her Tiny Desk debut on with a stripped-down, three-song set from her backyard.

Demi Lovato

Backed by only a keyboardist, Lovato allowed her powerhouse vocals to shine through performances of her 2017 single “Tell Me You Love Me,” along with two cuts — “The Art Of Starting Over” and “Dancing With The Devil” — from her new album, Dancing with the Devil… the Art of Starting Over.

“I’m super excited to be filming this outside, because I’m really, really excited about the weather changing. Spring is my second favorite, and summer is my absolute favorite season, so I’m really happy to be out in the bright, sunny California sun,” Lovato shared between songs.

The singer-songwriter performed against a backdrop of an adorable kitchen set, which included a very small desk, as is appropriate.

Tiny Desk is a video series of live concerts hosted by NPR Music. They’re typically held at the desk of All Songs Considered host Bob Boilen in Washington, D.C., but are being filmed at offsite due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Demi Lovato’s “Dancing With the Devil… The Art of Starting Over” Debuts at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Album Sales Chart

Demi Lovato is dancing her way to the top of the sales charts…

Demi Lovato

The set was released on April 2 via Island/Republic and sold 38,000 copies in the U.S. in the week ending April 8, according to MRC Data.

Dancing With the Devil… The Art of Starting Over is Lovato’s second No. 1 on Top Album Sales, and seventh consecutive top five-charting effort – the entirety of her charting albums. She previously topped the tally in 2009 with Here We Go Again.

Billboard’s Top Album Sales chart ranks the top-selling albums of the week based only on traditional album sales. The chart’s history dates back to May 25, 1991, the first week Billboard began tabulating charts with electronically monitored piece count information from SoundScan, now MRC Data. Pure album sales were the measurement solely utilized by the Billboard 200 albums chart through the list dated December 6, 2014, after which that chart switched to a methodology that blends album sales with track equivalent album units and streaming equivalent album units.

Of the album’s debut sales of 38,000, physical album sales comprise 25,000 of that figure (all in CD sales) while digital album sales comprise 13,000. Sales of the album got help from the availability of a Target-exclusive CD edition of the set with two bonus tracks, a signed CD sold via Lovato’s official website, multiple CD cover variants and a deluxe edition with bonus tracks available through digital retailers.

Demi Lovato Releases New Album “Dancing With the Devil… The Art of Starting Over”

Demi Lovato is starting over

The 28-year-old half-Mexican American singer/actress has released her latest album Dancing With the Devil… The Art of Starting Over.

 

Lovato’s 19-track album is separated into two parts, with the “Prelude” including the first three tracks — “Anyone,” which she debuted at the 2020 Grammys, the title track “Dancing With the Devil” and “ICU (Madison’s Lullabye)” — detailing her struggles with addiction and near-fatal heroin overdose in 2018.

The Art of Starting Over turns the page and starts a new chapter in Lovato’s recovery journey with the remaining 16 songs.

Following her previously released “What Other People Say” single with Sam Fischer, the album includes highly anticipated collaborations with Ariana Grande (“Met Him Last Night“), Noah Cyrus (“Easy“), and Saweetie (“My Girlfriends Are My Boyfriend“).

She also unveiled the music video for the title track, which recreates the painful scene of her hospitalization immediately after her overdose three years ago.

 

Lovato belts out the stirring ballad from her hospital bed and in some scenes, occasionally lies unconscious as her family tearfully watches over her and holds her hand. The devil is also in the details of the accompanying visual, which Lovato co-directed with Michael D. Ratner, who also helmed her four-part YouTube Originals docuseries Demi Lovato: Dancing With the Devil.

Demi Lovato Reenacts Near-Fatal Overdose in Harrowing “Dancing With the Devil” Video

Demi Lovato is reliving a traumatic moment from her past…

The 28-year-old half-Mexican American singer/actress has released the official music video for her new single, “Dancing With the Devil… the Art of Starting Over.

Demi Lovato

While she discusses the painful details of the night and the life events that led up to her ovedose in a recently released documentary, the video, which Lovato co-directed with documentary director Michael D. Ratner, re-enacts the evening of her O.D. and sexual assault, in broad but disturbing detail.

The video opens with her singing from a hospital bed with an oxygen tube beneath her nose. It then cuts to the evening in question, where an increasingly inebriated Lovato is seen downing multiple drinks by herself in a bar, then bleary-eyed in a car with other people whose faces aren’t visible. She is then in a bedroom, where a man drops a bag that is presumably filled with the drugs that nearly killed her, and then the drug dealer is seen standing beside Lovato, who is passed out in her bed. He is then shown leaving, while she is apparently nude under the covers.

The clip ends with contact information for addiction assistance (1-800-662-HELP (4357) or samhsa.gov; sexual assault (1-800-656-HOPE 4673) and depresstion (text HOME 741741 / U.K. SHOUT 85258 / Canada CONNECT 686868).

“Thought I knew my limit, yeah/ I thought that I could quit it, yeah,” she sings in the song. “I thought that I could walk away easily, but here I am, falling down on my knees, praying for better days to come and wash this pain away. Could you please forgive me? Lord, I’m so sorry for dancing with the devil.”
