Demi Lovato Will Have You in Love with Her Artistry with New Album 'Tell Me You Love Me'
'Tell Me You Love Me' Album Review
One thing I love is someone who doesn't give a flying freak about what people think of them. They embrace who they are and they are candid about that person, flaws and all. Well, the first time I ever heard Demi Lovato sing, I was 16 years old watching a Disney Channel short calledAs The Bell Rings.
I was literally blown away that her voice was that structured at such a young age. Recently, Demi released a Youtube documentary entitled Simply Complicated where she revealed she had struggled with her cocaine addiction longer than her fans were even aware of, and she also shared about still to this day struggling with her bulimia, among other things.
With that same vulnerability, Demi Lovato presents us with her sixth studio album Tell Me You Love Me which features a more soul, R&B feel to the entire album. Lovato reveals this is the music she's always wanted to make instead of putting out music she believed people wanted to hear, like some of her past albums.
