Demi Lovato: 'Skyscraper' First Listen!

Check out Demi Lovato‘s new single, Skyscraper!

“This song is so special to me because it’s inspired by my journey and the struggles that I’ve dealt with this past year. I hope people are able to relate to it and realize that they are able to rise above and overcome any obstacle, no matter the circumstances, and shine like a skyscraper,” the 18-year-old entertainer wrote on her blog.

“I am still on a personal journey dealing with my own issues each and every day, but the best advice I can give to anyone going through a rough patch is to never be afraid to ask for help,” she added. “My biggest wish for this song is that it’s able to inspire others and urge them to keep moving forward no matter what the odds.”

  • one girl

    i love demi but why didnt she choose a more upbeat song for her single?

    shes trying to make a comeback and this just didnt hit the mark.

    I haven’t always liked all of Demi’s songs; but have to admit she has ability to tap into one’s emotions. i like this song overall. The song is pretty much like the message; she is alone–just a hint of music at times–but very pwerful. It’s actually pretty gutsy to put out a ballad first. I guess if you are talented enough you don’t have to put out autotune catchy song first.

    demi you can sing about a monkey we will still love u

  • lism

    not a great single thought it would be better

  • Kat

    Amazing. Love her.

    Good for Demi. It’s definitely one of those songs where you just have to sit there and listen to the lyrics. I started really loving it towards the end when she started hitting those high notes. I honestly think Demi is back. Not that exciting as a first single, but now she has room to impress people even more. Really excited to hear more from her.

  • Annie

    SOOOOO good! Love ya Demi… On repeat NOW!

  • Nicole

    I love Demi, but honestly I was disappointed. It doesn’t sound like her. I love her voice but in this song it sounds scratchy and strained. Although the message and words are so emotional and beautiful. I’m so happy for her and what she has done, but I was hoping for something a little better. Hopefully her CD will be more like her.

    Her voice “doesn’t sound too good” because she was crying during the song. I personally love it. It’s very moving. She’s so inspiring. I have an eating disorder myself. Love you, Demi <33

    I love it! She has gone through so much and this song is just a way of her saying she can pull through anything no matter what. Stay strong, Demi! <3

  • clau

    It’s a great concept.. However, when I first heard it I thought they might have released a rough unmixed version.. It sounds like a demo. She is more talented a singer than this.. It’s rough.

  • Benny Garcia

    I loved it. Demi is a very powerful singer. Stay Strong !

  • sumiyyah






  • Lynn

    I lovee this, so inspirational

  • just me

    this is a great song to have on an album but honestly dont know how good it will do as a single.

    either way demi is here to stay love her always. <3

  • gabi

    great song, it’s a good first single BECAUSE she has been through so much things, so an upbeat song woudn’t fit the whole concept of new demi :)

  • http://twiter Sebastian

    @whyy: She sings wonderfull………..Her best single in all carrer……Amazing song

  • http://B_R_Z_P_R Brian

    Amazing song, If their is one thing i respect about Demi is she does what she feels is right, not what others think she should do. Every one expected for her to takeout some upbeat song. But the truth is, this song is a reminiscence to what has happened. It is also a anthem to her fans and others who go through Depression, bullying, ect… Demi keep it up!!!!

  • spongebob

    it may be a good song but singles are meant to be heard on the radio from recieving rave reviews and being catchy this isnt the kind of song for that. its a ballad and is mostly just a great addition to an ALBUM.

    eh who cares demi has a voice that will build her a solid career she can sing anything :)

  • Tina

    This is quite an emotional song! The lyrics are great and music sounds pretty, but I personally do not like the way she sings this song. Her voice sounds strained. I understand that she was crying when she recorded this, but they could’ve and should’ve re-recorded those parts over. I doubt I’ll be listening to this song very much, which is disappointing since I’ve been a big Demi fan since 2007. But I am looking forward to her new album. :)

  • Koree

    AHHHH!!! FINALLY!!!! I love you Demi no matter what, and I support everything that you do! Can’t wait for the new album!!

  • http://Wefight4demi Wefight4demi

    We love you Demi. Amazing song

  • marq


  • paige

    @just me: agree !

  • Naomi

    I really like this song. It’s very inspirational. I normally don’t like songs from Disney stars, but this is really good. The reason why she sounds different is because she got emotional while recording it. I don’t know if it’s just me but it felt so real and raw. Demi is the only teen star that has a great singing voice, who doesn’t need auto-tune at all. I can’t wait to see how the video turns out. Also, a comeback song doesn’t need to be upbeat.

  • Gabby

    Legit just listened to this song 3 times in a row. Listening to the lyrics and taking them in. Truly understanding what this song is about is so empowering! Really inspires me to stay stong no matter what. Demi Lovato is a wonderful person with a great heart. This song is amazing!

    Oh I would also like to add that her record label, Hollywood Records, should try and promote this single onto mainstream radio stations like Z100.

  • that’s news

    Good Job, Kid!

  • Sheba

    its an emotional song IDIOTS! what did you expect? in order for it to sound real it has to sound natural! I LOVE IT!

    “Demi’s voice doesn’t sound too good” because she was crying when she recorded it, it’s emotional. Put yourself in her place, Demi fell down, she fell down far and now she’s rising back up and she will stay up and keep rising because shes bigger than that fall she took, way bigger.
