Lovatics couldn’t seem to wait to hear new music, so on Monday, they unlocked the entirety of Demi Lovato‘s self-titled May 14 album for themselves.
The singer kicked it all off with the tweet, “Who wants to hear my album RIGHT NOW???,” directing fans to a special website where the locked songs were waiting to be uncovered. Once the Lovatics made the song title a Twitter trend, the song was made available for streaming. It only took about three hours for fans to get a hold on all 13 songs on Demi.
Demi is a blend of power ballads, feel-good dance tracks and upbeat anthems. And while Lovato mostly goes at it on her own, she invites one-time “X Factor” U.K. contestant Cher Lloyd along for some fun on “Really Don’t Care.” The release certainly recalls the emotional and musical ups and downs of her 2011 release, Unbroken.
So many incredible fans… Thank you SO much… I’m so thankful for each and every one of you. I love you all!! 😊❤

After the trending hoopla died down, Demi thanked her fans for playing along, writing, “So many incredible fans… Thank you SO much… I’m so thankful for each and every one of you. I love you all!!”
Her fans were equally grateful for getting an early listen to the music. And judging by their enthusiastic responses and Twitter reviews, they will keep listening right through release day next week.

And, hands down, the track that was getting the most buzz is her duet with Lloyd. @PHLovesEleanor wrote, “my ears are having orgasms bc of Demi Lovato and Cher Lloyd. #ReallyDontCare.”
