Demi Lovato Teases Emotional New Album

Demi Lovato is getting emotional on their next album…

According to an emotional message on the 29-year-old half-Mexican American singer-songwriter’s Instagram Story, the upcoming release will share the artist’s ups and downs during their personal journey.

Demi LovatoThough the “Cool For the Summer” singer’s title-pending eighth studio album has yet to be announced, it sounds like it’s getting pretty close to completion.

“Getting emotional listening to my new album because I’m so proud of it,” Lovato wrote. “It’s my absolute best yet and so representative of me, where I started and who I am today.”

In January, Lovato staged a “funeral” for their pop music, signifying a shift toward punk and rock influences that are definitely noticeable in clips they’ve shared of their unreleased songs. They accompanied their recent Instagram statement with a video singing along in the car to one 2000s-influenced track most likely titled “City of Angels,” and the day before that, posted a video of one called “Happy Ending,” which included the lyrics: “Sure I’m sober now, and everybody’s proud, but I miss my vices. Am I going to die trying to find my happy ending?”

“Yesterday I posted a song called ‘Happy Ending’ and even tho I wrote this in an incredibly dark place I’m so grateful that I’m no longer in that low, cold and lonely place,” Lovato continued in their Story. “I’m sure that no matter what happens in my life…my happy ending is never having to fall into bad habits again.”

The bad habits they’re referring to include their addictions to drugs and alcohol, which Lovato has openly spoken about struggling with since they were a teenager.

They dropped a single called “Sober” in which they admitted to relapsing after years of sobriety in 2018, about a month before being hospitalized due to an opioid overdose. The artist also opened up about the near-fatal experience in their 2021 documentary Dancing With the Devil, and has been fully sober since December at the latest.

“I can’t wait for everyone to hear,” they concluded. “I love you all.”

The star took to Twitter on Wednesday, March 30, to share the pre-save link for the “Sped Up Remix” of the song.

The release, of course, comes following the summery hit’s resurgence on TikTok, thanks to a hip-swaying dance challenge and a viral mashup with Ginuwine’s “Pony” from user @kuyamagik.

Upon its release, “Cool for the Summer” peaked at No. 11 on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart dated September 19, 2015, and spent a total of 20 weeks on the chart.

Earlier this year, Lovato bid farewell to their pop music and welcomed a new, rock era. Lovato jokingly shared an image to their Instagram grid posing with both middle fingers up,  joined by music executives from Island Records and manager Scooter Braun. Every person in the picture wore all black. “A funeral for my pop music,” Lovato captioned the brooding image.

Lovato then elaborated via their Instagram Story, with one of the label executives saying, “You put out whatever music you want, whenever you want to. Break the rules.”

Demi then shared two snippets of a new rock song in the following clips.

Lovato’s most recent album, Dancing With the Devil…The Art of Starting Over, primarily featured pop lyrics and production.

The album peaked at No. 2 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart. Fans were first given a taste of Lovato’s rock-inspired sound in their first two albums, Don’t Forget and Here We Go Again, under Disney’s Hollywood Records.

Demi Lovato Among Celebrities Featured in Twitter’s New “Manifestations” Campaign

Demi Lovato is hoping to inspire others’ manifestations…

Twitter has launched a new campaign encouraging everyone to “Think big, make it happen,” and the social media platform has called in the 29-year-old half-Mexican American singer/actor to help.

Demi LovatoTwitter is embarking on a physical campaign, one that’s meant to inspire minds and lay down the groundwork for big things in the future.

On Tuesday, Twitter launched its celebrity-powered “manifestation” project, engineered by the power of positive thinking in 280 characters or less.

Lovato, Megan Thee Stallion and Niall Horan are among the artists, athletes and celebrities whose tweets became a reality, and are now set to go extra-large on billboards around the country.

Those tweets will appear in the hometown locations of the stars “who manifested their dreams,” in eight cities around North America, reads a statement from Twitter.

On February 7, 2010, Lovato tweeted that they one day hoped to sing the National Anthem at a Super Bowl. A decade later, Lovato fulfilled this dream in 2020 by singing at Super Bowl LIV.

To get the ball rolling, Twitter is donating nearly $1 million to charities of the stars’ choice on their behalf, including Boys and Girls Club, Destination Crenshaw, The 3-D Foundation, and UNICEF Canada.

Tweets about manifestation are at an all-time high, the social network reports, with 100% year-over-year growth and a total of close-to 60 million posts over the past three years.
