Demi Lovato Preps 'Made In The USA' Single
"Heart Attack" follow-up will be worked to radio beginning later this week.
With Demi Lovato's hit single "Heart Attack" beginning to ever-so-slightly dip on the Hot 100 chart -- the track tumbled from No. 20 to 26 on last week's chart, after downgrading from No. 15 to 20 a week earlier -- the pop star has officially set "Made In The USA" as the second single to her fourth studio album, "Demi."
"Made In The USA" will hit Top 40 radio on June 27, on the same day that Lovato will appear and perform on "Good Morning America" as part of their Summer Concert series. One week later, the singer will play the annual Philly 4th of July Jam alongside John Mayer, the Roots, Jill Scott and more.
Although the "Made In The USA" music video has not been given an unveiling date yet, Lovato co-directed the clip, which apparently includes "some special surprise actors," according to a press release.
"Heart Attack" became Lovato's second Top 10 hit on the Hot 100 chart (following "Skyscraper" in 2011), and is now the second biggest-selling single of her career, accruing 1.5 million downloads to date according to Nielsen SoundScan ("Give Your Heart a Break" still leads with 1.9 million downloads). After debuting at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 chart last month, "Demi" has sold 178,000 copies to date, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
"With my album this time, I wanted to go into it keeping in mind that I want to listen to stuff on the radio that I can relate to," Lovato told Billboard last month in an extended Q&A. "I think the reason why artists like Adele and Taylor Swift are so relatable is because they talk about their experiences and pour it out in their songs. There's a lot more to their music than just partying and going out."
"Made In The USA" is an uptempo, red-white-and-blue-tinged celebration of everlasting love, and a fine choice for a follow-up single -- although we can't wait for the "Demi" standout "Something That We're Not" to be worked as a single one of these days.
