“Music Review: Demi Lovato – Don’t Forget” – Read More
Demi Lovato went from flirting scenes with Joe Jonas in Camp Rock to releasing her brand new CD, Don’t Forget in only a matter of months. She sings in Camp Rock, but her voice on her new CD is a lot more edgy and the CD has a rock image. My sister and I closely associate the CD with Canadian Singer, Skye Sweetnam (“Tangled Up in Me,” “Number One,” “Billy S.”) Demi sings under Hollywood Records, as does Miley Cyrus, and the Jonas Brothers. Demi and Miley have similar sounds, but Demi’s definitely got my vote.
Demi does a duet (With two extras?) with the Jonas Brothers in “On the Line.” Anything the Jonas Brothers sing is automatically good, but Demi definitely adds a special touch. This song is nothing like Joe Jonas and Demi’s “This Is Me.” Instead it has more of a rock edge. Very, very sweet song. I’m glad Demi paired up with them. Now, if she could only do a duet with best friend, Selena Gomez of Wizards of Waverly Place …
I really enjoyed track one, “La La Land.” Not only are Demi’s vocals good, but the song has very amusing lyrics that makes her fans relate to her. For example, the first three lines you hear are “I am confident but I still have my moments/Baby, that’s just me/I’m not a supermodel. I still eat McDonald’s.” Her vocal range varies and it produces a great song.
The song that made me break down and buy the CD was the single, “Get Back,” which I saw on Youtube. Rumor has it that it’s about her ex, Cody Linley (Hannah Montana) but she denies it. Very powerful, exciting. Another song Demi totally rocked on.
“Gonna Get Caught” is another good song. It reminds me of a guy that I used to know; so, I would definitely say Demi connected to me in this song. She likes this guy and the guy’s playing her and she figures it out. Now, if only I had this song, when I was going through this crises. I cannot think of anyone better to sing this song. Demi does it perfectly. Yeah, it’s totally my number one.
Other songs include: “Trainwreck,” “Party,” “Don’t Forget,” “Two World Collide,” “The Middle,” “Until You’re Mine,” and “Believe In Me.” I like every single song.
It’s a very danceable album and extremely good. I do recommend buying it for anyone who likes the Jonas Brothers or Miley Cyrus. But teen queen Miley better look out, she now has Demi Lovato on her tail.
Next up for Demi is her new Disney show Welcome to Mollywood. In it a teenage girl becomes a fish out of the water when she moves to L.A. to film a TV show. There’s also rumors for a second Camp Rock.
