New Release: Demi Lovato - Give Your Heart A Break

14 May Critic Jonni 0 Comments

Believe it or not, but you are definitely hearing this right! For the first time EVER, Demi Lovato has released a second single from an album in the UK. Her previous two albums only spawned one single release in the UK, so after I got excited at seeing "Skyscraper" finally released in the UK, I was expecting another long wait (about a year or two) until another single release. But a second single has finally come off her third album, but will it get the great charting position it needs? Or will it dwindle, especially with the stiff competition of new releases: Jessie J's "Laserlight", The Saturdays' "30 Days" and the already charted: Tulisa's "Young", Rita Ora's "R.I.P." and Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe". Will she get to number one, it's extremely doubtful, as there is no sign of her on the top 200 iTunes chart, all we can ask is that it gains some sort of charting position, otherwise second singles from future albums will be a thing of the past.

This song was written by Josh Alexander and Billy Steinberg. Yet again Demi locks onto this song and makes it her own, it's so personal you believe she is going through this right now, and I'm quite surprised she didn't help pen the track. Hopefully one will soon come up. I recently watch "La La Land" music video and I hardly recognised her. She looks much more healthy now, and much more beautiful, and the people who are slagging her off are purely jealous of her.

This music video is definitely one of my favourites, it's a great narrative, that I love to watch over and over again. And the ending is so amazing, but do those photos actually make that picture? I know that other people have done it in the past, such as Taylor Swift who got fans to send in a photo, and then in the CD single there was people's photos all joined together and it made the picture of Taylor Swift. But with this, I feel that a projector might have been used...

The onscreen boyfriend is Alex Bechet, he looks a little bit like Siva Kaneswaran from The Wanted. I'd love to be able to make a collage like that one, it's really clever. I also like the fact that we see clips of when they were together, and Demi Lovato explains where it's gone wrong and why they need a break in the song.

Overall I love this song, and it's accompanying music video is amazing to watch. I have nothing bad to say about this music video. And I so hope enough interest is built up so that this song manages to chart, as it is really catchy. I have yet to download the digital download. But I shall be doing it this week. I hope others will do the same.
