Confident By Demi Lovato

Confident. Isn’t it something we all want to be? More importantly, isn’t it something we all want to be listening to?  Yes, dear reader, I am talking about Demi Lovato’s newest album, which dropped on October 16th.

Confident is approximately 11 tracks of everything you’d want an album to be. It begins with the title song “Confident” and leads into one of her most popular, as well as overplayed songs, “Cool For The Summer”.

Don’t let that one overworked song fool you into not listening to the rest of the album though. Soon after, comes tracks with catchy beats and compelling lyrics. Two good examples of that are “Wildfire” and “Lionheart.”

The final song on the album is one that should be catching everyone’s attention. With the simple title of “Father,” it explains everything you need to know about the track.  This song was written as a tribute to her late father who died in June of 2013. In her song, she expresses her sorrow over his death, as well as her wish for him to “be in a better place.” Her vocals and lyrics really tug at the heartstrings, and make you want to hug your own father and never let him go.

Overall, this album deserves a 7/10. Her lyrics were clever, her beats catchy, and her emotions showed throughout. the only thing I would change about Confident, is to get rid of “Cool For The Summer,” and find a different rapper for “Kingdom Come.” Iggy Azalea was just the wrong choice.
