Demi Lovato’s “Confident” Surfaces: Listen

Demi Lovato's "Confident" Surfaces

Demi Lovato’s powerful new single lands on the Internet.

Lovato never officially announced her followup single to “Cool For The Summer,” but several weeks ago it was reported her second release was a song titled “Confident” produced by the famed Max Martin. On Friday, a low quality 10-second clip made the rounds before the full thing landed online ahead of its release (we presume on Monday, Aug. 24).

In the song, Lovato asks what’s wrong with being confident, and according to her not a damn thing. The 23-year-old is unleashing the freak inside, but now she’s letting go. It’s as if she’s bottled up pent-up aggression and took it all out in the recording studio. The blaring horns and thumping beat assist her newfound edginess – creating a successfully sassy ditty about being underestimated.

It’s time for me to take it / I’m the boss right now / Not gonna fake it / Not when you go down / Cause this is my game and you better come to play

We’re super impressed with Lovato’s intrusive return to pop music. “Cool For The Summer” remains one of our favorite summer songs this year, and “Confident” follows nicely.

To answer her question, nothing. Nothing is wrong with being con-fi-dent uh uh huh.
