For those who relate to the tribulations of love, this album was written for you. Completely shed of her innocent Disney roots, Lovato dives a level deeper from Confident to bring honest feelings of heartbreak to the surface in an unapologetic, almost confrontational, manner—all delivered with effortless, passionate, powerhouse vocals that spread goosebumps. She showcases her artistry dabbling in genres from soul to bubblicious ‘80s pop to R&B to modern pop disco. Conversely, in finding new love, Lovato knows what she wants, playing the alpha female ready for a gooood time. Proceed with caution, kids—gotta slap a mature rating on this one.
