Single Review: Demi Lovato – Sorry Not Sorry

UPDATE: I MIGHT HAVE BEEN A BIT TOO HARSH IN MY REVIEW BELOW. CHECK THE TRACK BY TRACK TELL ME YOU LOVE ME ALBUM REVIEW HERE TO READ WHY.

Demi Lovato back with new single ‘Sorry Not Sorry’
A year after the release of the one off single ‘Body Say’, Demi Lovato returns with some brand new solo material. After having hits with collaborations ‘No Promises’ with Cheat Codes and Jax Jones track ‘Instruction’, Demi is ready to do it all alone again. The brand new single is titled ‘Sorry Not Sorry’ and was officially released on the 11th of July. Will this mark her return to solo success?

If I had heard this track for the first time not knowing who was performing it, I am pretty sure I would have guessed it was the new Jessie J single. ‘Sorry Not Sorry’ sounds like the type of song she would throw at us circa 2014 and that actually says it all. There is a fine line between powerful vocals and screaming and Demi Lovato finds herself on the wrong side of things with this release. A bit of a let down after she sounded so sensual and understated for most of the seductive ‘Body Say’. The lyrics on ‘Sorry Not Sorry’ are supposed to be ballsy, but I can’t help but cringe ever so slightly when she sings ‘now payback is a bad bitch, and baby, I’m the baddest, you fuckin’ with a savage’. Demi does her absolute best to scream the hook into our brains, but nothing in this song song really sticks enough to make me want to listen again. ‘Cool For The Summer’, ‘Body Say’ and even ‘Heart Attack’ are proof that Demi Lovato can be a worthy pop star, but ‘Sorry Not Sorry’ unfortunately isn’t one of those moments.

  1. There is a difference between singing and screaming and you are clearly the one who can’t seem to get the difference. Demi is unequivocally vocally powerful. Listen and learn before you speak (or write rather). Ciào.

    • Thanks for sharing your opinion! Just to be clear, I never denied Demi’s vocal talent as she obviously has a great voice. My point however, is that to me she tends to oversing, which does come across as unpleasant and screamy. To me, Jessie J tends to do the same. Sometimes less is more when it comes to the use of your vocal talent. Of course we can agree to disagree on that bit and that’s all good, but as I post reviews, I will write down my opinion. Not before I listen and think about it of course! 🙂
