Demi Lovato Releases Rock Version of ‘Heart Attack’
Earlier this week, Lovato teased fans with a snippet of the new version on Instagram, writing, “Heart Attack, but make it Rock.” When the track was finally released on Friday, the singer confirmed in another post that they re-recorded the song’s vocals for the new version.
Lovato sounds amazing on the re-recorded song, showing off a powerhouse voice to go along with the updated style, which features heavier guitar and drum sounds than the original. This version also features that iconic high note that fans have tried to recreate in TikTok challenges.
“It feels amazing, being able to see the song continue to reach people and inspire people to hit those high notes,” Lovato told Billboard. “I used to try and hit those high notes in my favorite songs — it’s really cool that people are starting to do the same with mine.”
Lovato also noted how much they’ve changed over the past 10 years, which shows in the new version, explaining, “I was so young, and I was a completely different person back then. I hadn’t come out as non-binary yet, so when I look back, I see a totally different person than I am today. But I still love that girl, I love that part of me.”
