“Cool For The Summer” By Demi Lovato Has A Lot In Common With Katy Perry’s “I Kissed A Girl” — LISTEN
This is the moment you've been waiting for, Lovatics: Demi Lovato's new single, "Cool for the Summer," is here — and you won't be able to take it off repeat. The "Heart Attack" performer's latest offering premiered online on Monday evening, and I think it has all the makings of a massive hit. Slick production? Check. Catchy chorus? Check. Sexy lyrics? Double check. What makes Demi Lovato's "Cool for the Summer" lyrics so sexy? They describe a summertime fling that's getting seriously hot and heavy. On the first verse and pre-chorus, Lovato sings:
Tell me what you want, what you like
I'm a little curious, too
Tell me if it's wrong, if it's right
I don't care
I can keep a secret
Got my mind on your body
And your body on my mind
Got a taste for the cherry
I just need to take a bite
Don't tell your mother
Kiss one another
Die for each other
We're cool for the summer
A killer guitar riff kicks in just as the track launches into its turbo-charged chorus:
Take me down into your paradise
Don't be scared, 'cause I'm your body type
Just something that we wanna try
'Cause you and I
We're cool for the summer
The first time I listened to "Cool for the Summer," I got major déjà vu. "Where have I heard this song before?" I wondered. I was racking my brain. Then, suddenly, it dawned on me: the "Cool for the Summer" lyrics have a lot in common with Katy Perry's "I Kissed a Girl" lyrics! Just take a look at all of the similarities:
Exhibit A: I'm Curious About You
"I Kissed a Girl": "I'm curious for you/Caught my attention..."
"Cool for the Summer": "Tell me what you want, what you like/It's OK/I'm a little curious, too..."
Exhibit B: I'm Trying You Out
"I Kissed a Girl": "It's not what I'm used to/Just wanna try you on..."
"Cool for the Summer": "Take me down into your paradise/Don't be scared, 'cause I'm your body type/Just something that we wanna try..."
Exhibit C: This Is Just For Fun
"I Kissed a Girl": "Ain't no big deal, it's innocent..."
"Cool for the Summer": "I just wanna have some fun with you..."
Exhibit D: Uh, Cherry References?
"I Kissed a Girl": "I kissed a girl and I liked it/The taste of her cherry chapstick..."
"Cool for the Summer": "Got a taste for the cherry/I just need to take a bite..."
Is "Cool for the Summer" also about hooking up with a woman? It's possible. I have a feeling the upcoming music video will make things clear. Until then, we can only speculate. Stay tuned.
"Cool for the Summer" hits iTunes on July 1.
