When Will Demi Lovato's 'Confident' Be On Spotify? The Songstress Is Back & More Self-Assured Than Ever — LISTEN
Behind the polished production of her music and its pristine pop factor, it's easy to forget that Demi Lovato has some of the strongest pipes in the game. But if there was any doubt about her vocal credentials, they were squashed last week when she dropped "Stone Cold," the latest single off her upcoming album Confident, on Spotify. She previewed the song at a concert earlier this summer, and the song marked a departure from the album's other lead singles "Cool for the Summer" and title track "Confident." Basically, she's been teasing the album all summer, making it one of the most anticipated albums out now, and Lovato's Confident is finally here. Now, with some artists keeping their music off of streaming services, your most pressing concern should be whether Confident will be on Spotify.
Never fear, Lovato's latest is definitely available in wide release on Spotify and iTunes. Before the release of the album proper, she had already made the first three singles available on Spotify, and teased the song titles via a few close celeb friends on Twitter in a kind of online scavenger hunt, as Fuse reported. The album features a number of high-profile collaborations — including songs with rappers Iggy Azalea and Sirah, and a co-writing credit with Ryan Tedder.
Confident is all about, well, confidence. As she said on Ryan Seacrest's show, "New chapter, new life, new album, new single, this is a completely new Demi." She's not trying to please anyone in particular, just make the music that most reflects where she is at this moment in her career. And not only does the album feature a set of really empowering lyrics, but the music videos released thus far also show off Lovato at her strongest and most self-assured. In the video for "Confident," she fights Fast & Furious star Michelle Rodriguez, who Lovato told Access Hollywood was entirely supportive of the girl-power message — "You know, I've been waiting for this, for an opportunity where girls can come together and take on the bad guys," she said of Rodriguez's response.
Judging by first listens, the album lives up to its empowering hype. "Confident, "Cool for the Summer," and "Stone Cold" are just the beginning, and she's even inspired fandom in the likes of Michelle Obama — Obama selected "Confident" as the eighth track of her girl power playlist in honor of International Day of the Girl. Lovato's track stands alongside other mainstays like Beyoncé and Ms. Lauryn Hill, and it's totally deserving of a spot on that list.The album is the perfect mix to dance out all your woes, so stream it on Spotify, and get ready for Lovato's performance on Saturday Night Live this weekend.
