Demi Lovato made a major comeback and gave us several amazing songs last year, and her first single of 2021 is here. “What Other People Say” sees her joining forces with the Australian singer Sam Fischer and it’s all about defying the pressures of society.
Lovato and Fischer both serve as songwriters on “What Other People Say”, and this song is deeply personal for each of them because it perfectly captures the struggle of trying to live up to everyone’s expectations.
“This song is a reflection on what it’s like to lose who you truly are in an effort to please other people and society. It’s why I wanted to make this song with Sam – ultimately it’s about two humans coming together to connect and find solutions to their problems,” said Lovato in a press release.
Fischer is the latest artist to join forces with the former Disney star since her comeback in early 2020. She also collaborated with Sam Smith on “I’m Ready” and Marshmello on “OK Not to Be OK”, and released several solo singles, including “I Love Me” and “Anyone”.
