Two-time Grammy nominee Demi Lovato has dominated the music industry for over 15 years, sharing a diverse catalog spanning multiple genres and star-studded collaborations. While Lovato’s look and sound has evolved throughout her career, one thing remains the same: underneath it all, she is still an emo kid at heart.
Lovato’s most recent release, Revamped, is her 9th full-length album and features guest appearances from none other than pop-rock mavens The Maine, emo pioneer Bert McCracken of The Used, powerhouse Nita Strauss, and legendary guitar player Slash. Revamped puts a rock spin on 10 of Lovato’s beloved pop hits over the course of her first six albums.
While it may be easy for some to discredit Lovato’s motive to make rock versions of her hits, she is no stranger to the scene as she has been very vocal about her emo/rock influences since the early days of her career.
Lovato has repeatedly posted artists such as Maylene & the Sons of Disaster, Bring Me The Horizon, Stray From The Path, Bodysnatcher, Paramore, and more on her social media accounts over the years.
The well-known singer/actress is also a frequent attendee of Emo Nite LA and has even played Warped Tour in the past by making a cameo during We The Kings’ set in Ventura in 2010.
Earlier this year, Lovato even reminisced about losing a shoe while crowd-surfing at an Unearth show as a teenager and went viral for mentioning she wanted to collaborate with hardcore staples Knocked Loose.
There’s no doubt that Demi Lovato has roots in rock and Revamped is just further proof that she is an emo kid at heart, just like us.
