Demi Lovato – Waitin For You (Video Premiere)
Demi Lovato surprises fans by dropping a video for the “Confident” cut “Waitin For You” to promote her new album.
“Waiting For You” itself is a feisty trap-pop jam with an atmospheric vibe as Lovato confronts the haters in her life, “I won’t back down, knuckles out, guard in my mouth, hungry for the next round. I’ll be waiting for ya,” she sings with a menacing delivery. The track is produced by Jason Evigan and Steve Mac and LA-based rapper Sirah also makes an appearance for a suitably brooding guest verse.
Demi previously expressed her thoughts on “Waiting For You”: “This song shows a side of me that I’ve never shown before, and that’s ‘Don’t mess with me,'” she said. “Let’s just say not a lot of people try to pull that sh*t with me. But it’s gonna happen.”
The gritty, black and white music video hits the message of the track home especially as it was filmed outside Cross Timbers Middle School in Texas which is the school Demi left due to intense bullying when she was younger. Demi Lovato cuts back all the glitz and glam for the video and wears a jacket emblazoned with the word “Confident” on the back showing the journey she’s been on since her childhood.
