Hit Songs That the Artists Now Regret

Drake and J Cole, “Jodeci Freestyle”

The superstars dropped their collaboration in 2013, and immediately faced backlash, as Drake called autistic people “retarded” in a verse.

“I share responsibility and offer my sincerest apologies for the pain this has caused. Individuals with autism have brilliant and creative minds, and their gifts should not be disparaged or discounted. This was a learning lesson for both of us, and I’m grateful for the opportunity to try to right this wrong. J. Cole and I believe that it is the right, responsible, and respectful decision to remove the lyric from the song,” Drake later wrote in a statement.

Demi Lovato, Demi (2013) & Confident (2015)

Demi Lovato doesn’t necessarily regret recording their 2013 and 2015 studio albums, but in a recent interview, they revealed that they actively avoid revisiting those albums.

“I don’t know if it’s because it reminds me of the people that were in my life during those times or if it just doesn’t feel that authentic to myself. I had really believed in myself after putting ‘Skyscraper’ out, for the Grammys. I was like, I might have a shot now! And then I put out another album — nothing,” they said.

“So I dove into, all right, what is the formula for a pop star that’s top of the charts?…I played that role for a minute. And that didn’t fulfill me at all…it’s weird to think that I had more sense of identity as a 15, 16-year-old than I did as a 23-year-old.”
