Demi Lovato Takes A Dip Into The Lady Pond With Bicurious Summer Anthem, ‘Cool For The Summer': Listenby Bradley Stern | PopCrush
Who’s feeling a little…curious?
After teasing the smokin’ hot cover art and an equally tantalizing bikini top-less teaser, frequent Heart Attack sufferer-turned-skin care specialist Dr. Demetria Devonne Lovato has sprung a leak with “Cool For The Summer” this morning — and it’s the greatest pop ode to dipping into the lady pond since Katy Perry‘s “I Kissed A Girl.”
Due out on July 1, the aggressive, uncharacteristically horny Max Martin-produced summer smash-in-waiting sees the LGBTQ Warrior floating far, far away from her usual powerhouse arena rock-pop styling on a pool raft built for two bicurious beach babes. (It seems that all the Disney princesses are, like, super thirsty lately. Right, Selena Gomez?)
“Got a taste for the cherry, I just need to take a bite / Don’t tell your mother, kiss one another, die for each other / We’re cool for the summer,” she declares before going down — on a nasty, hard-edged electronic drop, that is. Thematically, the song is all sorts of “I Kissed A Girl” (taste of her cherry chapstick and all) — and that massive earworm of a chorus hits just as hard as any of Princess Perry’s massive radio hits.
“Take me down into your paradise / Don’t be scared ’cause I’m your body type / Just something that we wanna try…”
Given that Demi’s most known for #ItGetsBetter self-empowerment anthems and devastatingly crushing ballads (LIKE A SKYSCRAYPAHHHHH), it’s so, so nice — and unexpected! — to hear Demi let down her hair, get a little (bi)curious and have some fun on a irreverent pop smash…if only just for the summer.
But shh….don’t tell your mother.
Well… After a long night of sweat, baby oil, and lots of skin… That's a wrap #CoolForTheSummer ☀️
