Is That New Demi Lovato Single Coming To Slay Our Entire Lives In July Or What?
TL;DR answer? Maybe — and it's going to be fire fire fire fire fire emoji.
Demetria Devonne "Demi" Lovato, frequent sufferer of heart at-ah-AH-AHHH-AH-ahcks, is readying her return to the pop scene. She's been teasing her new music for ages now on the Twitter, and recently co-founded a record label with Nick Jonas, Hollywood Records and Island Records, which she will reportedly use to promote her fifth studio album.
And based on a tiny smattering of info, the lead single from that forthcoming project may be coming as soon as July 4.
On June 20, Demi tweeted that she'll be doing an Ask Me Anything chat with Saturday Night Online on July 4. (Want to ask her a question? Submit one now!) That wouldn't raise too much of an eyebrow — she's always got plenty of exciting projects to talk about — except for the fact that radio programmers are beginning to confirm that they've heard Demi's new single, including B96 Chicago's Erik Bradley, who tweeted a firestorm — literally. There's, like, 20 fire emojis in his tweet, so you know it's real.
Oh, and legendary "Really Don't Care" songwriter Savan Kotecha retweeted Demi's Saturday Night Online tweet — WITH A WINKY FACE.
Also, more essential info, per Demi's most watchful Lovatics: Based on her hairstylist Clyde Haygood's Instagram, the album photo shoot happened just a few days ago — and she might have been rocking some long hair. Or multicolor hair. Or something. "All bases covered!" he wrote in an Instagram full of luscious wigs.
So: Online chat happening on July 4, album photo shoot seemingly complete and radio programmers already buzzing about the song. Put it all together, and what do you get? Something's about to go down sooner rather than later — that's for sure.
Scalp us, Demetria.
