Demi Lovato’s Disney Channel stardom may be over, but her new album “Tell Me You Love Me” reminds us all of why she rocks (she rocks, she rocks, she rocks on).
After releasing “Sorry Not Sorry,” an unapologetic jam that fired up our already 90+ degree July and kept morale high before hitting the grind for FDOC, Lovato showed us that she could “talk that talk.” The bar was set for her new album, and she had to prove she could “walk that walk,” too.
Even though Lovato’s album isn’t named after this song, I don’t see the namesake “Tell Me You Love Me” showing up the jam that was more than just “Cool for the Summer.”
What the song does give us is a healthy dose of nostalgia.
The first verse and pre-chorus of “Tell Me You Love Me” sounds like a teenage girl’s confessional diary entry, and we get all the details of Lovato’s thoughts. When she says, “I don't know who I am without you,” I immediately thought of her 2009 hit “Here We Go Again.” Holy throwback, Batman!
