Two years ago Grammy nominated, multi-platinum and singer-songwriter Demi Lovato released her fifth studio album Confident. The album became number two on the Billboard charts and nominated for “Best Pop Vocal Album” at the 59th Annual Grammy Awards.

On Sept. 29, Lovato is back with Tell Me You Love Me an album with an R&B-Pop influence which was inspired by “Christina Stripped album” according to Lovato in a recent interview. Working with Grammy winning producers, Demi Lovato proves with ferocity that she is much more than a “bubblegum” pop singer.

Starting off the album is “Sorry Not Sorry” a track dedicated to the ones who bullied Lovato in middle school to prove she is doing a lot better than where she was then. This track contains deep vocals singing “payback is a bad chick and baby I am the baddest”, while Lovato showcases her strong vocal riffs.

Next is the title track,“Tell Me You Love Me”. In an interview with Yahoo Entertainment, Lovato said she “[felt] like [she] wanted to hear from someone “that they love her””. Trumpets, drum claps, slow bass and a gospel choir, compliments Lovato’s vocal range. This heartfelt R&B song proves why Lovato was originally invited to sing at the Grammy’s twice and later on nominated.

The fourth song of the record is titled, “You Don’t Do It For Me Anymore” a song with ambiguity in between the lines, being vocal about her drug and alcohol addiction she overcame in 2012. With lyrics such as “Money won’t pay for your problems/You gotta fix them yourself” Lovato expresses herself in this rich, orchestral song.
Around the process of the Tell Me You Love Me album Lovato had gone through a breakup but does not consider this album a breakup album. This album showcases Lovato’s strengths as a great singer-songwriter alongside her powerful voice.
