Demi Lovato’s latest release, Unbroken, is garnering lots of attention thanks to its catchy tracks and empowering message. Beyond co-signs from Lovatics and a number of celebrities, including Ashley Greene, Sean Kingston and even Joe Jonas, it’s also received great reviews from the hardest people to please: the critics.
But Lovato isn’t paying attention to any of it. She told MTV News she’s more focused on the here and now and the excitement of having a whole new crop of music for everyone to hear. “I haven’t actually looked at any of the critics or reviews,” she said. “So, if they’re good, awesome; if they’re bad, whatever.”
According to reports, despite some stiff competition on the charts from the likes of Tony Bennett and Lady Antebellum, Lovato is still expected to sell pretty big. Billboard.com reports that she’ll likely sell about 110,000 copies of her album, besting her previous chart-topping release, 2009’s Here We Go Again, which sold slightly less with 108,000.
“I’m feeling really excited,” Lovato said. “The album just came out, so we’re really, really excited. And it seems to be doing well, so I’m really, really happy.”
Now that the album is getting some love and she’s readying the release of her next single, “Who’s That Boy,” it seems like a good time to start remixing tracks. “I’d love to hear the feedback on who would want to remix,” she said. “We actually have a remix on the album by Wizz Dumb, and he remixed ‘Skyscraper,’ and it sounds really awesome. You can check that out: It’s on the album.”
If anyone would jump on the album, Lil Wayne might be just the right guy. Lovato has certainly made his track “How to Love” all her own. Of a potential collaboration, she said, “That would be amazing. I’ve never met him in my life, so if I got to be onstage with him, I would just die.”
