Demi Lovato is done worrying about what others think. Her new song with Sam Fischer, “What Other People Say,” is all about getting so caught up in other people’s perceptions of you that you realize you’re losing yourself.
“Thought when I grew up I would be the same as the ones who gave me my last name/ I would not give in, I would not partake/ In the same old drugs everyone else takes,”/ I’m better than that, I’m better than that/ I’m living my life so I go to heaven and never come back/ But look where I’m at, look where I’m at/ I’m living the life that I said I wouldn’t, I wanna go back.”
“This song is a reflection on what it’s like to lose who you truly are in an effort to please other people and society,” she said in a statement. “It’s why I wanted to make this song with Sam — ultimately it’s about two humans coming together to connect and find solutions to their problems.”
