Demi Lovato Talks ‘Soulful’ Sixth Album: ‘I Don’t Care About Radio Hits’

Demi Lovato‘s climbed the Billboard Hot 100 charts with hits like “Cool For The Summer,” “Give Your Heart A Break” and “Heart Attack” over the years, but according to a new interview, that’s not something she’s particularly trying to achieve.

The Confident belter recently posed for the June/July 2016 issue of Latina, in which she spoke her mind about everything from Kesha‘s legal battle with Dr. Luke (“It’s very f–ked up that he’s not letting her go”) to mental health advocacy.

And when it came time to discuss new music, Demi — in usual Demi form — didn’t hold back.

“I don’t care about radio hits. When you try hard for that, it doesn’t happen. It’s songs like ‘Stone Cold’ that I don’t get tired of singing on tour. I get tired of singing ‘Give Your Heart a Break’ and even ‘Confident’ already. I have yet to reach my peak, and also, my voice is better now than it was a year ago. Now I can show people what I can do.”

As opposed to whipping up some radio-friendly bops, Demi’s evidently focused on drawing from her experience over the past year, during which she’s lost several loved ones.

“There’s a lot of pain that I experienced over the past year, and I’m so ready to write about it. I’ve stayed sober through it all, I’m a stronger person, but it’s definitely been a very painful year,” she said, explaining that her next album “will have a more soulful vibe.”

Lovatics, prepare for the music to sound a lot less “Cool For The Summer” and a whole lot more “Stone Cold” on Demi’s sixth LP.
