Demi Lovato’s Summer Scorcher is Finally Out — “Cool for the Summer”

Demi Lovato just released her new song “Cool for Summer” today.  The jam is a new sound for Lovato.  It is definitely more mature and WE LOVE IT!

Demi spoke to MTV news recently and stated, “For this album, I’m making music that feels right to me. This time around, I was able to explore different sounds, and hone in on something that I’m really proud of. I’m inspired by something every day so those experiences will definitely be reflected on my next album.”

The song will appear on Demi’s yet to be titled fifth album, and if the rest of the songs are as catchy as this we’re in for a treat.

Crank up these hits and feel the heat.

These hot tunes are ranked based on each track’s performance on the Billboard Hot 100 chart during the summer.

For the years corresponding with Nielsen Music data, 1992 onward, the rankings are based on accumulated radio and sales points, and points from other data sets that were included in the Hot 100 during those respective years.

Lily Allen’s new video ‘As Long As I Got You’

Lily Allen has debuted the video for new single ‘As Long As I Got You’ – filmed at this year’s Glastonbury Festival. Check it out below. 

The video starts with Allen talking about her first visits to Glasto  and how her last appearance was where she met her husband now.  Listening to the lyrics, the song is about her husband Sam and their new life.  The lyrics, in Lily Allen fashion, very touching.

I had that awful feeling, that I needed help
My life had lost this feeling, but you saved me from myself
As long as I’ve got you and we can be
together and forever just you and me, well that’s swell

Lily said: “Glastonbury has always been a huge part of my life, and I wanted to make this video there to celebrate the spirit of the festival and also to show how my life has changed since the last time I played there. From being there as a child with my Dad, to my wilder days in the 2000s, to this year when I was back on the Pyramid stage, and taking my husband and own daughters along!”
