Demi Lovato Is Back With An Empowering New Single, And She's Thanking Her Fans For Their Support

"This is an anthem for anyone who's ever been hated on."

We already know Demi Lovato's new single is going to be in our heads for the rest of the day, and we're totally fine with it. 

It's been far too long since we've heard Lovato's powerful voice on a new track, and "Sorry Not Sorry," which the singer released at midnight on Tuesday, does not disappoint. In a Twitter note to her fans, Lovato called the song "an anthem for anyone who's ever been hated on and has risen above it and come out from the other side like a fucken savage!!!"


The lyrics find Lovato getting back at someone who has wronged her, and sounding great while she does it. "Now I'm out here looking like revenge / Feelin' like a 10, the best I ever been," she sings, before declaring in the chorus, "Baby, I'm sorry (I'm not sorry) / Being so bad got me feelin' so good / Showing you up like I knew that I would."

"I hope this song makes you get off your seat and dance like you never have before," Lovato told fans, and that's exactly what we're doing. The singer also teased a bit of what looks like the song's music video.

In the Twitter note in which she teased the song, Lovato also thanked her fans for their support and allowing her to take some time off, writing, "I'm lucky to be in a position to have the love of tens of millions of people. It's so unreal! I look at my followers on social media and the people I get to meet during shows and just out and about, and the kindness of every single one of you continues to blow me away."

She added that she wants "to hug and meet more of you, and to take more time learning about some of your personal journeys too."

It's clear from Twitter that Lovato has the continued support of her Lovatics with the release of this new song.

"Sorry Not Sorry" is the first single off Lovato's upcoming sixth studio album. "It's more soulful and I want to go more R&B with it," Lovato told Billboard about her new sound earlier this year.

We can't wait to hear more.
