‘The pre-chorus says it best, where it says, ‘You’ve had me underrated.’ I’ve wanted to shout that from the top of my lungs for years now,” she says in the video below.

“I have never been confident enough in my own skin to feel sexy,” Lovato admits. “Now that I’m feeling great and I feel confident, I’m proud of the skin that I’m in.”

“I’m wanting to share that with the world and showing everyone how you can go from being very insecure with body image issues to feeling so proud of your body that you want to show it to the world,” she continues.

Over the weekend, Lovato also shared a very brief preview of the forthcoming music video for “Confident,” which will premiere on Oct. 9. Her Confident album is due out on Oct. 16.
