Demi Lovato shared another sneak peek of her upcoming single “29” on social media on Tuesday (August 9).
The new TikTok shows the singer sitting in the backseat of a car, staring straight into the camera as her voice wails, “Finally 29/ Funny just like you were then/ Thought it was a teenage dream, just a fantasy/ But where is it yours or was it mine?/ 17, 29” on the track.
Lovato’s die-hard followers flooded the post’s comments section, eagerly tying the song’s accusatory lyrics to her relationship with actor Wilmer Valderrama. (The two stars began dating in 2010, when he was, well, 29 and she was 17. The couple stayed together on and off for nearly six years before breaking things off for good in the summer of 2016.)
“Finished Wilmer with this one!!” one fan wrote, while another commented, “YAAAAS DRAG HIM BESTIE,” their two responses racking up more than 2,000 likes between them. Another follower chimed in, adding: “Every teenage girl dating a guy in his 20s should listen to this. You are a great role model.”
The song will be the third single from Lovato’s upcoming studio album Holy Fvck, which is set to drop Aug. 19 via Island Records. Coincidentally, it’s the day before Lovato rings in her 30th birthday on Aug. 20. The album was also preceded by lead tracks “The skin of my teeth“and”Fabric.”
In an exclusive interview with BillboardLovato – who recently started using she/her pronoun again with them/them – it suggested Holy Fvck will be an abrupt departure from the sonic palette of her recent albums in favor of cut– warped sound of her earliest LPs.
