[New Music] Demi Lovato ft. Lil Wayne – Lonely

5 Posted by - September 30, 2017 - Music, Singles

What you will find here is a healthy dose of autotuned vocals from Weezy, along with a bountiful harvest’s worth of forest metaphors. At times, it’s admittedly difficult to make out what Wayne is singing, but after years in the game, his ear for melody is still solid. Demi’s passionate voice carries the bulk of the DJ Mustard produced track, which pairs minimalist drums with airy, ambient synth pads. Her lyrics are a testament to the pain of loss, with the simple yet effective refrain of “you leave me fuckin’ lonely” serving as the track’s anchor.

Overall, it’s a solid track, especially if you’re interested in those RnB vibes. The former Disney star sounds comfortable carrying a track, and her vocals contain an understated power that really sells the songs’ ultimate message. Again, if you came here for a scene-stealing performance from Wayne, you might leave disappointed, but his presence adds a welcome touch of character to the ballad.
