The track will be a politically-charged anthem directed at President Donald Trump. “Were you ever taught when you were young, if you mess with things selfishly they’re bound to come undone?” she sings in a piece posted to Instagram. “I’m not the only one, that’s been affected and resented every story you’ve spun," she sings.
"There's been so many times that I've wanted to write the President a letter or sit down with him and ask him these questions," she told CNN. "And then I thought, I don't really actually want to do that and I thought one way that I could do that is writing a song and releasing it for the whole world to hear and then he has to answer those questions to everyone and not just me."
Lovato said she's not looking to bring division with the lyrics but hopes to encourage her supporters to stay engaged in the political process and vote in next month's election. "We have to turn up and vote because it's so important that our voices are heard. And, honestly, for me, whether you are a Republican or Democrat, just get out and vote," she said.
Previously she told CNN, "I just want the world to know, that we in the diocese of Washington, following Jesus and his way of love ... we distance ourselves from the incendiary language of this President."
Lovato has earlier slammed Trump, in a series of Instagram stories, where she wrote, "Donald Trump - be the f*cking leader we need you to be," the singer wrote on Instagram Stories, sharing the message with her 83.7 million followers. "I'm actually begging you because we're stuck with you until November, then you will have to pay for your silence, lack of leadership & action."
According to some reports, she will be performing on this song at Billboard Music Awards 2020.
