With a variety of pop and R&B songs and introspective ballads, Demi Lovato’s highly-anticipated album, ‘Unbroken,’ completely lives up to the hype!
Demi Lovato has officially grown up. Throughout the last year, we’ve watched the 19-year-old performer struggle with pressures of being a child star and the transition from Disneyland to adulthood, but now she’s finally made it through the thick of it — and her album Unbroken if proof of her success. Chock full of solid tracks ranging from emotional ballads (ala “Skyscraper”) to fun pop songs, like her next single and collaboration with Dev on “Who’s That Boy,” Demi’s range of talent is brilliantly executed on her third studio album, which drops Sept. 20.
The 15 track album begins with upbeat pop songs, including her collaboration with Missy Elliott and Timbaland on “All Night Long,” and gradually becomes more serious and emotional with her single “Skyscraper,” and the song about her less than perfect relationship with her dad, “For the Love of a Daughter.”
Each song is so unique and varied, it’s hard to describe the entire album with one theme. However, here are my favorite tracks:
Best track before a night out: “All Night Long” This upbeat pop number will get you in the mood to go out and have a wild night!
Most emotional track: “Skyscraper” As you’ve already heard, Demi was so emotional while she recorded this ballad, her voice cracked. Even with all the other songs on the album, “Skyscraper” is the rawest.
Best vocal performance: “Lightweight” Christina Aguilera doesn’t have anything on Demi! She WAILS on this track and it’s incredible. She’s got the pipes to back up her fame.
Favorite track to play on repeat: “Who’s That Boy” I’m a Dev fan, so it’s no wonder I love this song. Demi and Dev’s sounds work brilliantly with each other and I can imagine this song being remixed and played in clubs. Next to “Lightweight” and “Skyscraper,” “Who’s That Boy” is easily my favorite song on Unbroken.
If you’re a fan of R&B and pop, you’re bound to enjoy Demi’s latest work. The entire album is solid.
