In an interview before the cover, Lovato recalled being blown away by the song right off the bat. "The first time I heard it, it was on the radio," she said. "And I was like, 'Wow, this is on pop radio.' And it's not your typical pop song -- in fact, it doesn't sound like a pop song, but the term 'pop' means popular, so it is a pop song. I think I even tweeted, 'Thank God that somebody put this on the radio, because this is incredible music.'"
