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?
