Demi Lovato refuses to be torn down in new 'Skyscraper' video

Posted on

Demi Lovato’s new single “Skyscraper,” which has been number one on iTunes since she released it on Tuesday, now has a video to go along with it.

The clip features Lovato, clad in a white dress, standing in the desert and emotionally belting out the track, while subtle pulses depict blood rising from the ground, a black shroud drifting in the breeze, and bare feet stepping on broken glass.

There are no electric guitars or goofy story lines here—just simple, raw passion. Gaga, take note:

With clenched fists and triumphant stomps, Demi screams, “Go on and try to tear me down!” as if she’s yelling directly at her toxic former addictions. Her performance is convincing; I mean, I wouldn’t mess with her.

What do you think of the video?
