Demi Lovato is back and better than ever (even with her very messy breakup with Max Ehrich). Despite 2020 being, well, 2020, Demi is still out here doing the damn thing, as evidenced by her new song and Billboard Music Awards performance last night.
Demi just dropped "Commander in Chief," which people were pretty certain was designed as a message to President Donald Trump. A quick flip through an American history book will tell you that the U.S. Army's Commander in Chief is none other than Mr. President, so I rest my case on the connection, but Demi also went ahead and confirmed to CNN herself that yes, this song involves Trump.
In "Commander in Chief," Demi speaks to Trump directly and tells him his senseless actions have caused our country so much pain. Demi lays all her thoughts on the table while acknowledging that she is privileged enough to not suffer, calling out Trump's handling of the coronavirus pandemic and the way he condemned those marching to honour Black lives. In short: It's the song people both need and deserve ahead of this year's US Presidential election.
Listen to "Commander in Chief" RTFN, and take a look at a couple of the most pointed lyrics, below. Demi's haunting chorus raises the suffering of the American people during the pandemic and follows it with a stinging rhetorical question to the President:
"We're in a state of crisis, people are dying
While you line your pockets deep
Commander in Chief, how does it feel to still
Be able to breathe?"
