SINGLE REVIEW: Demi Lovato – Cool For The Summer
Demi Lovato made it very well known that album number 5 was going to bring a Revisioned sound and image for the new era but no one was quite prepared for this. Sexy. Naughty. Fun. And a whole lot of attitude. “Cool For The Summer” is one of those songs you’re either going to love or hate. With its chilled pop synths verses and electrifying guitar led chorus it’s a song that breaks the mould on the pop music that is currently circulating. It’s not inspiring cookie cutter pop that Lovato fans are used to but it’s a refreshing look at where she is in her life right now and that is a happy and confident place. With sexually explicit and innuendo themed lyrics she opens up conversation about her sexuality with a bisexuality theme coming across hot and heavy. “I’m a little curious too. Tell me if it’s wrong, if it’s right, I don’t care. I can keep a secret, could you?”. Her vocal delivery is very clean and doesn’t see her hitting any massive notes but on the lead single for a new sound it’s a smart move as it allows everyone to focus on that before shocking them with flawlessly executed vocals. The hook is catchy and grows on you with each listen but the beginning of the hook sounds VERY similar to Jessie J’s “Domino” and I can’t help but singalong to her chorus during it. “Take me down into your paradise. Don’t be scared cause I’m your body type”. I’m really digging this song and this new sound for Demi Lovato and while not everyone is going to agree you can’t deny that your intrigued to hear what she has planned next.
