Dropping the new breakup song
Meanwhile, TMZ reported Lovato surprised her team when she released her new breakup song on Twitter. Titled, “Still Have Me,” she had sent her group “into a frenzy” to get her new tune on streaming sites so that her fans could buy it.
Sources with direct knowledge about the issue told the site the hitmaker wrote the song with friends. Although “she kept the hook,” she decided to change the lyrics to reflect her recent split.
“I’m a mess and I’m still broken,” the lyrics go. “I don’t have much, but at least I still have me … and that’s all I need.”
The insiders revealed the Camp Rock star got very frustrated with Ehrich’s antics. Recently, The Young and the Restless alum compared his ex-girlfriend and their breakup to Jeffrey Epstein.
With that, Demi Lovato couldn’t wait to drop her new song. So, her team is now working hard to get it on streaming platforms, like Apple Music and Spotify, to start the sale and count the streaming numbers.
