Demi Lovato is looking to try her hand at R&B on her next album. While she has cited Rihanna as an influence for the album’s vibe, she has two of R&B and hip hop’s most recognizable voices in mind as dream collaborators for the album, which she is currently hard at work on while hitting the road with the Jonas Brothers.
“I would love for Drake to be on the album,” she said. “It’s kind of like a pipe dream. I would also like to do a song with Trey Songz. It would be hot! Yeah, it would be really good.”
While Drake and Trey aren’t onboard (yet, anyway), fans can expect Demi to turn her sound upside down on the upcoming LP. “I’ve been working with a few producers,” she told MTV News. “I don’t know if I can talk about it, but I’m excited to start working with more people.”
Lovato, who has always displayed her big voice on her songs and the “Camp Rock” soundtracks, is ready to show the world just what that sounds like on these new songs.
“I’m working on new music, writing new songs, trying to approach a different route, doing a new sound,” Lovato said. “I’m really excited. It’ll be fun. It’s more R&B/pop. I’m trying to bring out my inner ‘soul’; a new side of Demi,” she laughed. “I’m straying away from the rock this time.”
