Demi Lovato is no doubt one of the most noted singers of this generation. She’s released six studio albums since her debut occurrence on Disney back in 2008. Since then she’s gained a major following for her newest album Tell Me You Love Me to be enjoyed by many. It features 12 tracks that blend the perfect mix of pop, R&B, and soul. This is especially clear on the lead single Sorry Not Sorry which peaked at 8 on the Billboard Hot 100. Sorry Not Sorry sold 45,000 copies in the first three days of it’s release, proving Demi is a powerhouse in the industry.
The title track off the album Tell Me You Love Me is a powerful song. It is a dramatic love song that displays Demi’s vocals over a strong ballad. Tell Me You Love Me shows Lovato’s true vocal ability as she easily hits some of the highest notes in her register. Lil Wayne joins her on Lonely, a slower R&B track that showcases her true feelings about a relationship that abruptly ended. Lil Wayne chases pace as he slowly sings a counterattack on what Demi had to say. Another song upbeat as Sorry Not Sorry is Daddy Issues. Daddy Issues describes the issues Demi has while in a relationship which she believes to be derived from her father. The two didn’t have the most ideal relationship and slowly became disconnected, but she still believes in mentioning him through music. To change pace, brings Games which is an anthem for anyone who is tired of being put through the challenge of love. She writes “I don’t know why you play these games / Come on, now, say what you wanna say.” She wants everyone to know what she wants in a relationship and that two can play at these games.
Being one of her most personal albums she has written, Demi shows many sides of emotion, from slow sad songs like Cry Baby, to upbeat snappy songs like Instruction. This album is what everyone needs right now, it can showcase any side of emotion.
