Demi Lovato’s confessional new song “Dancing With the Devil” has topped this week’s new music poll.
Music fans voted in a poll published Friday (March 26) on Billboard, choosing the 28-year-old singer’s title track from her forthcoming album as their favorite new music release of the past week.
In the lyrics for “Dancing With the Devil,” Lovato reflects on her battles with substance abuse that nearly took her life in 2018.
“I was dancin’ with the devil, out of control/ Almost made it to heaven, it was closer than you know/ Playin’ with the enemy, gamblin’ with my soul/ It’s so hard to say no, when you’re dancin’ with the devil,” she sings.
Lovato wrote the powerful new number with Bianca Deiandra Atterberry, John Ho and Mitchell Allan Scherr.
“Dancing With the Devil” is the also the title song for Lovato’s four-part YouTube Originals documentary, which premiered on March 23.
Her forthcoming album, Dancing with the Devil… The Art of Starting Over, is scheduled for release on April 2 through Island Records.
Placing second on the past week’s tally with 39% of the vote was Swift and Morris’ “You All Over Me (Taylor’s Version).” The collab is Swift’s first offering “From the Vault” ahead of her re-recorded Fearless release on April 9. The previously unreleased song from the Fearless era evokes the old country soul of Tay’s heyday.
Coming in third with 4% of the vote was Lil Nas X’s namesake opus “Montero (Call Me By Your Name),” a rhythmic-pop number perfect for giving the devil a lap dance and opening the door “for many other queer people to simply exist,” according to a letter he addressed to his 14-year-old self.
