What an album!
Demi Lovato is seriously in her element right now as Tell Me You Love Me hits all the right notes.
She’s certainly found her voice on this outing and the whole soul vibe of the album truly fits Demi’s amazing voice.
While “Sorry, Not Sorry” was the first taste of the album, it is probably the poppiest and urban of the whole album as the rest of the album is emotional and soft.
As usual there is plenty of heartbreak here on tracks like “You Don’t Do It For Me Anymore” and “Cry Baby”. Her powerful voice always makes emotional tracks that much more poignant. It particularly deals with outgrowing relationships and ones that are simply just emotionally draining.
Demi even touches on how her relationship insecurities have been shaped by childhood trauma on catchy track “Daddy Issues”. Another notable track is “Lonely” which is like Demi’s version of Rihanna’s “Needed Me” and it’s just as amazing. It somehow manages to up the explicitness over RiRi with Demi dropping F bombs left, right and centre.
The singer has also really upped her sensual side on the album with tracks like “Sexy Dirty Love”, “Concentrate” and “Ruin The Friendship” embracing and tending to her physical needs. The latter track has fans speculating it could be about one Nick Jonas, and it’s easy to see why.
Verdict: Demi Lovato is truly in her element on the soulful Tell Me You Love Me, making it one of her best albums yet. It’s an easy listening experience that is less filler and more punch.
Best Tracks: Tell Me You Love Me, Lonely, Daddy Issues, Ruin the Friendship, You Don’t Do It For Me Anymore, Concentrate, Hitchhiker.
