Demi Lovato (feat. Travis Barker) – I Love Me [Emo Version]

Carte Blanche Music is all about new songs. I love to introduce you to artists you might not have heard of before, but a great new track by a well-known act deserves a recommendation as well. Either way, credibility is never an issue when I make my selections. Credibility is a subjective concept that biases the opinion of snobs, who often mistake credibility with quality (an equally subjective concept). I’m not a snob, I just like great (new) music.

Well, that was a very long introduction to the new Demi Lovato single. Or rather, a new version of her earlier single I Love Me. Last year, Travis Barker made a remix of Maggie Lindemann’s Friends Go. The former blink-182 drummer turned it into a track that didn’t sound out of place in his ex band’s catalogue. Now, he applies the same formula to Demi Lovato. His Emo Version of I Love Me turns the pop track into a driving rock song. Lovato’s ace vocals sound great on a bed of pounding drums and soaring guitars.

If Barker would be commissioned to compile a whole album full of rockified pop songs, I’d be the first to buy it.
