If you thought the “Chains” music video was the most exciting Nick Jonas news of the day…brace yourselves for this one: Demi Lovato is confirmed to sing a duet with Nick on his new album.
We knew that Demi and Nick were up to something when she posted a pic of her hand and another person’s hand recently in the studio, giving the thumbs up. She teased: “Recorded a KILLER duet today…. Can you guess who it was with?” It didn’t take long to figure out it was Nick, but we didn’t know when we’d hear their collaboration. Nick’s album will be coming out in the fall, so it’s not long now.
Nick confirmed the duet buzz, telling E! News, “We did one for my record,” adding, “It’s a great song that we both love. Her voice is just amazing on it. She’s the real deal. It’s the perfect fit for this record.”
We. Can’t. Wait.

Good news for Harmonizers and Lovatics: Demi Lovato and Fifth Harmony aren’t just going on tour together, they’re also collaborating!
“Of course there’s plans to collaborate with them,” Lovato told MTV News. “I adore them so much. They’re such sweet girls and I really think they’re going to go far in this industry. I’m glad I could that I could be a part of it by helping put them together and taking them on the road. It’s really exciting.”
As for their upcoming Neon Lights tour, Lovato promised it’ll be different from her previous sets. “You can expect a show I’ve never put on before. Other shows I’ve had have been all about the music. I want it to be about girl empowerment,” she revealed. “I want it to be a huge party that everyone has fun at, just an incredible experience.”
And now for another burning question on Lovatics’ minds: When will we hear new music from her?! The ex-’X Factor‘ judge promises she’ll work on new tracks while she’s on breaks from her tour. “I’ll definitely be writing every chance that I get!”
Demi Lovato has selected “Neon Lights” as the third single from her recent album Demi, and the video is coming as soon as Sunday night — as the songbird revealed with a little teaser video on her Facebook page. Showing neon letters (I see what you did there, Demetria) spelling out the name of the song.
It’s a simple visual, but promising — especially if we get some shots of Demi in club attire. Expect the video to premiere at 6pm ET on Sunday, September 29.
Given the song’s heavy EDM influence, it’s the most obviously radio-friendly out of the remaining tracks on Demi, but it was also one of the worst-received critically upon the album’s release, which makes it a curious single choice. Ah well. A new Demi video is better than no Demi video at all, right?
