Top 10 Demi Lovato Songs
From “Camp Rock” to the top of the Billboard Charts, Demi Lovato has solidified herself as a pop icon of the early 20th century. Welcome to WatchMojo.com, and today we’re counting down our picks for the Top 10 Demi Lovato Songs.

For this list, we’re only looking at original songs that have appeared on Demi Lovato’s official albums. This means there won’t be any covers or singles that don’t appear in her solo discography.

#10: “Neon Lights”

Demi (2013)


Demi Lovato’s dance-pop meets EDM anthem was met with positive critical reception when it came to how it showcased the artist's enormous vocal range, moving from soft notes to her trademark high keys. Despite departing from her pop-rock roots, the single peaked at number 36 on the US Billboard Hot 100. Accompanied by a music video featuring black lights and neon body paint, the track is sure to send people flooding the dance floor or singing in the shower. Appearing on her fourth record, he tune also gave Demi’s 2014 tour its name, assuring that Lovatics everywhere would be “burning up like neon lights”.

#9: “Warrior”

Demi (2013)


One of Demi’s most personal songs, “Warrior” takes listeners on a personal journey, where the artist deems herself as a metaphorical phoenix who has risen from the public ashes. As a song about self-definition, Demi recognizes the track as both the easiest and hardest she’s written, given that an almost 4-minute song doesn’t give her enough time to tell her whole story. In 2015, during a show in New Zealand, Lovato dedicated a performance of the song to Bruce Jenner, who showed courage and bravery in the public eye by expressing his wish to be identified as a woman. Intended as a sequel to the popular hit “Skyscraper”, Demi mixes her powerful vocals, and heartfelt melody to once again bring us all to tears here.

#8: “Really Don’t Care” feat. Cher Lloyd

Demi (2013)


Another one of Demi’s signature “dance-pop” tracks, the artist employs an upbeat vibe to show power against a former lover. In 2014, the track was nominated for Choice Break-Up Song at the Teen Choice Awards, and actually won the award for Choice Summer Song. Showcasing her overpowering pipes, the tracked peaked at number 26 on the Billboard Hot 100 and with a little help from Lovato’s friend Cher Lloyd, it became Lovato’s third Number 1 on the US Dance Chart. As for the music video, Demi used the platform to spread the empowering message that “her Jesus loves all,” and offered her support of the LGBT community.

#7: “Stone Cold”

Confident (2015)


Demi’s chilly single “Stone Cold” debuted in 2015 as the sole promotional track for her new album “Confident”. With a stripped down, bare to the bones production, it also featured a soft piano melody to put focus on the artist’s killer vocals. The song tackles the subject matter of watching the person you love move on with someone else. In an interview with Ryan Seacrest, Demi testifies that she wanted to create a song that you felt in your hearts and “ripped their guts out”. The music video sees Demi crying in locations like a bathtub and the mountainside. Meanwhile, we try to hold back tears while she sings, “God knows I tried to feel happy for you”. Well played, Ms. Lovato.

#6: “Confident”

Confident (2015)


Lovato sheds her skin in this 2015 single and moves further into the role of empowering female role model. The catchy tune was certified “Platinum” in both Canada and the United States, and again solidified Demi as a powerhouse in the Dance Club genre. The song also saw heavy feature outside of radio, appearing in the international “Spider-Man Homecoming” trailer, PayPal’s “New Money” advertisement for the 2016 Super Bowl, and in the feature film “Bad Moms”. Meanwhile, the music video shows off Demi’s bad-ass side, with an award-worthy plot about adversaries, fistfights, and double-crossing marshals. With lyrics such as “it’s all about me tonight,” we know Lovato is no longer playing around –and there’s nothing wrong with being a little confident.

#5: “Don’t Forget”

Don’t Forget (2008)


The titular song of Demi’s debut album was co-written with the help of everyone’s favorite boy band, The Jonas Brothers. The track takes listeners on a journey through love and loss, marking Demi’s transition from teen-pop sensation to a much more mature artist. Under Demi’s creative control, a music video was also released that saw Lovato and her band freezing in the cold rain, and reminiscing about an emotional past relationship. While Demi says she’s over that relationship, Lovatics clearly have no issue with the artist putting out catchy breakup anthems.

#4: “Cool for the Summer”

Confident (2015)


Acting as one of the biggest transition songs for the artist, this smash single off hit album “Confident” showed the new, racier side of Lovato. The song peaked at number 11 on the Billboard Hot 100, and sold 80,000 copies in its first charting week. The single became a huge talking point for its provocative subject matter and sexually suggestive, tongue and cheek lyrics, garnering comparisons to another bi-curious hit, Katy Perry’s “I Kissed a Girl”. This summertime anthem was also accompanied with a music video that saw the artist break from her timid Camp Rock days into a confident, sexual, and empowering new persona – with over 260 million views and counting, it’s obvious that her fans approve.

#3: “Heart Attack”

Demi (2013)


The lead single for her fourth studio album, “Demi”, is an electropop anthem about the vulnerability and risk that come with lending yourself to falling in love. The song sold 215,000 copies in its first week, which is Demi’s personal best to date, while also reaching number 10 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. Likened to the power of a Kelly Clarkson song, the track sees Demi reaching new heights with her voice, adding her signature sass and vocal range. While filming of the music video, director Chris Applebaum credits Demi as one of only two artists he’s ever worked with, the other being Celine Dion, who elected not to lip-sync. We can’t help but lower our defenses for this hit.

#2: “Give Your Heart a Break”

Unbroken (2011)


By 2011, Lovatics had come to know and love Demi’s take on relationships and heartbreak. For Demi however, this song become something different, with the themes about having faith in love, fighting for the one you love, and realizing that love is right in front of you. The song uses a variety of violins and strings, which some critics have likened to Coldplay's smash hit, “Viva La Vida”. The accompanying music video features Demi Lovato as the heroine, who fights to show her lover how much she cares for him, despite a heated argument. Demi, if you made a collage for us, we’d come running back to you too.


Before we unveil our top pick, here are some honourable mentions:



“La La Land”

Don’t Forget (2008)



“Here We Go Again”

Here We Go Again (2009)



#1: “Skyscraper”

Unbroken (2011)


This monumental hit has proven to be Demi’s most power and sincere ballad so far. It was inspired by apocalyptic imagery, with one skyscraper standing tall among the collapsed buildings around it. After completing treatment for physical and emotional struggle in 2011, Lovato went back to the studio to re-record “Skyscraper”, but ultimately opted use the original pre-rehab recording, as a symbolic representation of personal strength. The lyrics speak about facing adversity and the struggles of life, while rising above and staying strong - like a skyscraper. The song skyrocketed to the Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart, and to this day remains loved by Lovatics around the world for its empowering message.
