Demi Lovato and Clean Bandit deliver summer anthem ‘Solo’

18 May 2018

Demi Lovato is giving us all of the goods this week.

The pop powerhouse drops her second new song of the week today - after unleashing the powerful Christina Aguilera duet, 'Fall In Line', on Wednesday - and it's a massive collaboration with UK darlings Clean Bandit.

'Solo' is a huge, strange banger with a stuttering chorus à la Rita Ora's 'Anywhere', strings aplenty and more of Demi's ever-sublime vocals.

"I wanna fu-u-u but I'm broken hearted / Cry cry cry but I like to party / Tou-tou-touch but I got nobody / So I do it solo," Demi sings on the brilliant chorus.

Historically speaking, some of the best pop songs are the intimate kind of self-love bops, and this is no different here as Demi navigates singledom to find her pleasure.

'Solo' is the sixth single of Clean Bandit's second era, which has given them two Number 1 hits with 'Rockabye' and 'Symphony', and we reckon it could be their biggest one yet.

Almost one year on from 'Sorry Not Sorry', Demi could be responsible for the song of the summer two years in a row as 'Solo' is bound to be everywhere over the next few months.

The collaboration comes in perfect timing for UK and Ireland fans as the 'Daddy Issues' singer brings her world tour to Europe next week, kicking things off in Belfast next Thursday.

Will she add it to the set list? We sure hope so because we need to experience this one go off live!
