There's nothing wrong with being "Confident," and Demi Lovato is out to prove it. Over the weekend, the pop star's follow-up to "Cool for the Summer" leaked online, and the new single is an explosive, trumpet filled stomper.
Falling in line with "Cool for the Summer," "Confident" shows a sassy, sexy side of Lovato. With rounds of thunderous drums and honks of brass horns, "Confident" is all new Demi, with no signs of heartbreak or struggle in sight.
A subtle finger snap backs the entire track and only comes to the forefront during the start of the chorus, giving the song just enough time to cool off before it becomes explosive once again. "So you say I'm complicated / But you had me underrated / What's wrong with being confident?" Lovato asks against deep, heavy instrumentation.
Whether or not this is the finalized version of "Confident" remains unconfirmed, but if it is, it seems clear that Lovato has a bangers-packed LP on her hands.
Listen to the new track below, via Billboard:
"Confident" is the confirmed title of the second single to Lovato's fifth studio album, which is due out before the end of the year via Island/Hollywood Records and Lovato's new imprint Safehouse Records. The confidence heard in this single and "Cool for the Summer" is indicative of the new sound, which Lovato teased in an interview earlier this year with Ryan Seacrest.
Saying that she's done with the "sob stories," Lovato admitted that her new album will show a sexier side of herself. "There's a side of [me] that people don't get to see with my past music, but it's been there," she said. "It's totally been there. And like hey, just because I'm sober doesn't mean that I'm judging anybody else for their stuff. And also, it also doesn't mean I didn't have a damn good time back then either. I'm having a good time sober - a better time for sure."
