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.”

    Since when did singles HAVE to be catchy?
    Meaningful songs are much MUCH better than any crappy ‘catchy’ autotuned song.
    They touch people’s hearts. They actually have meaning. There’s so many people in the world that could easily relate to this song. They just don’t know it because they don’t listen to the lyrics… they’re looking for the 4×4 drum beats and the wild synths. Take a while to listen to the lyrics, you’ll enjoy it more.

    I’ve been in a really hard obstacle of my life that almost all people r putting me down but this song gave me a massage that ” keep moving forward” because that’s the only way i could make it through and don’t worry about the past just focus about the present because you can’t change what happen at the past .

  • Haley

    I Will Be Honest, I have never liked all of Demi’s Songs, But in this song she truly touched my heart. She has such an amazing voice for being only 18. In this song it sounds like she wrote those lyrics from whats happening in her life right now. I am very Inspired by her.
    ♥(Love) You Demi!♥

  • Cláudio

    I love Demi so much ♥

  • Hailee

    This is probably the most powerful and inspirational song Demi has ever released. It pretty much tells the story of everything she’s been through and how she will continue to stay strong. You can hear the emotion in her voice, and that’s a beautiful skill to hvae. She is talented and an inpsiration to so many people. We love you Demi, keep this amazing music coming

  • ρaρaяazzι

    Good song! but as a first single? i don’t think so! and her voice doesn’t sound that good! this more like for her fans and not for people that wanna hear music =) but i really like her but this is just not a good idea to put a song like this as a first single.

  • samantha

    everyone seems to be forgetting how well Christina Aguilera’s beautiful has done that was a ballad.
    It has the potential to be like that. With these inspirational songs, they need to be like this instead of a fast beat like born this way, or firework.

  • Belle

    got me into tears before the first minute. haha and her voice captures her brokenness.. her vulnerability. its not supposed to be perfect or auto’d because .. ha who would take her seriously then.. they said this was emotional.. but she hit the ball out the park..

  • Cephus

    This is the crap you ruined the careers of every one else on your show for? BARF!. What a scam artist you are. You couldn’t break your contract and go be Miley Jr., so you fake a freak out and take the easy way out. What about the families and cast you destroyed in the wake of your ego? You could have done both, but hey, that requires WORK. “Crying during the song”? No, that’s poor vibrato , not weeping. I hope you dedicate a fraction of the checks you think you’ll make to the kids you left behind and blindsided.

  • MatejLoncaric

    I love the song awsome Demi!!!! Love ya!

    i personally love what alot of people are not liking. i love the fact she sounds like she is crying it makes it more real. and relatable to the listener and alos im sure it has editing done to her voice to make it sound more radio ready ( who doesnt )but i love the grit and a raw emotion she has in her voice . very different from her previous sound im lovin new demi! not too metion im dogging her Post apocolyptic esque r&b sound she has going on!! its refreshing to hear this as oppose to the dance house music that is taking over the airwaves right now. (not that i dont like that style either) its just change is good!! and shes done it well!! cant wait to hear what else she has in store!!!

  • Mandy

    Demi’s new single comes right from the heart, It is a perfect choice for a first single! <3

  • Mandy

    @emmy: True! But don’t forget Hilary Duff she makes great songs too.. Maybe not as good in her vocals as Demi, I admit.

    <3 Demi
    <3 Hilary

  • summer

    i love that she made her first single a ballad. it just wouldn’t make sense if it’s an upbeat song because, duh, she just got through such a rough time in her life…

  • alien

    Sorry, but I don’t like this song.

  • cindy

    It’s not the best I’ve heard from her. I see it’s making waves on itunes and twitter and is getting support from celebs to but to be honest not her best song.The songs is not the best like people are saying it’s just okay but can’t wait to see what other songs she has in store.

    is inspiring = is Demi Lovato

  • Jordy

    Why are people hiding the comments of people who don’t like it? Not everyone is going to like the song.

    I don’t think it’s that great. Not for a first single. And I really don’t like the very beginning, her voice is a bit too deep during that part.

  • jackki

    @clau: i’m pretty sure that’s the point, it’s supposed to be raw, real… it’s supposed to show her vulnerability and i think it does that perfectly.

  • Nik

    I LOVE her voice. . .PLEASE always sing Demi!
