Today we are reviewing Demi Lovato's new single off her upcoming third studio album. The song is called Skyscraper and was released, yesterday.
So, the song is just over 3 and a half minutes long, and tells a story of self-empowerment and redemption, with truly emotional lyrics such as 'Do you have to make me feel like there's nothing left of me' and 'Would it make you feel better to watch me while I bleed', and then picks up with very powerful, inspirational words including 'All my windows are broken but I'm standing on my feet' and 'It's a long way down but I'm closer to the clouds up here'.
The song starts off slow, and builds to a strong, upbeat climax, marking the ending of a vocal masterpiece. Mainstream tunes have been packed with songs about self-empowerment, lately, but Lovato has been the only artist yet to bring the theme to such a personal, intimate level.
'Skyscraper' is truly an amazing, emotional comeback for the star, and Lovato couldn't have done any better on the track. The song is without a doubt the best song from the singer yet, and the best song we've heard in sometime.
