Unbroken track with legendary duo is a jam about ‘staying up all night long,’ Demi tells MTV News.
LOS ANGELES — Demi Lovato is ready to launch the next phase of her music career. She dropped her moving ballad “Skyscraper” earlier this summer and now fans are ready to hear what else the singer has up her sleeve when she releases her album Unbroken in September.
While the album will feature a number of collabos with artists like Jason Derülo, Iyaz and Dev, one track in particular, “All Night Long,” features two of urban radio’s biggest ’90s superstars, Missy Elliott and Timbaland. Last week, Lovato spoke to MTV News and told us that working with the legendary duo, who helped shape the careers of singers like Aaliyah, couldn’t have been more of a dream come true.
“I was so stoked when I went into the studio. I was working with Timbaland, and Missy was there, and she was like, she heard one of the songs and she asked if she could rap on it,” Lovato recalled about their July recording session.
“And I was like, ‘Of course, that’s not even a question.’ And she did, and she killed it.”
According to Lovato, the party track is pretty much the polar opposite of “Skyscraper,” showing off a whole new side of the 19-year-old. “The song that Missy and I did together, Timbaland’s actually on it, too, and it’s fun,” she said. “It’s about staying up all night long and singing it to the boy that you like, and it’s flirty and fun and it’s not too grown-up, but it’s grown-up enough.”
Lovato has already started making the rounds to promote the upcoming album, including a fan meet-and-greet in Los Angeles last week and a performance at Perez Hilton’s pre-VMA party. She went on to present Best Collaboration at the VMAs on Sunday night.
Next month, Lovato will play two shows, one each in New York and one in Los Angeles.
