As voices get louder and tensions rise in the run-up to the 2020 presidential election, Demi Lovato has joined forces with Billie Eilish’s brother and musical collaborator Finneas for a lyrically unfiltered criticism of President Donald Trump’s leadership, “Commander in Chief.” According to the announcement, the song, which dropped in the early hours of Wednesday, is “an effort to vocalize the powerful emotions felt by millions and mobilize fans to get out and vote.”
Lovato will perform the song tonight (Wednesday, Oct. 14) at the Billboard Music Awards, airing live at 8pm ET/PT on NBC.
Written by Lovato and Finneas with the hitmaking team of Julia Michaels, Justin Tranter and Eren Cannata, Lovato sings:
“We were taught when we were young,
If we fight for what’s right there won’t be justice for just some.
We won’t give up, stand our ground.
We’ll be in the streets while you’re bunkering down.
Loud and proud, best believe
We’ll still take knee, while you’re
Commander in Chief.”
Along with releasing the song, Lovato is also providing fans information about the voting process and how they can take action via her social media channels. She will also release an accompanying music video for “Commander In Chief” following her Billboard Music Awards performance tonight.
Lovato is a longstanding advocate for mental health who has released two songs on that theme earlier this year. In March, she released the self-reflective “I Love Me” and then most recently, partnering with Marshmello for the release of “Ok Not To Be Ok” timed to Global Suicide Prevention Day.
