#Rockvato is officially back. Since the release of her latest album, HOLY FVCK, Demi Lovato has been vocal about swapping her radio-friendly sound for a genre that feels more authentic to her: pop punk. At the beginning of this year, Demi even jokingly posted a pic with her team wearing all black with the caption “A funeral for my pop music.”

Her eighth studio album takes a more mature approach to the emo-inspired sound she explored on the first two records she released as a teen — Don’t Forget and Here We Go Again — but that doesn’t mean she’s unaware of the impact her pop hits have had over the years. During the latest installment of ELLE‘s Song Association, Demi belted songs by Paramore, Avril Lavigne, The All-American Rejects, and, of course, herself. One of the tracks she sang was her bisexual anthem, “Cool for the Summer,” which still feels authentic to her. The 2015 single has recently made viral waves on TikTok and she ended up officially releasing a sped-up TikTok remix on streaming platforms. The track has also received praise from celebs like Bowen Yang and Matt Rogers of the Las Culturistas podcast.
Demi even teased that a rock version of the song could potentially be in the works. “If I had to re-record one of my songs for this album, it’d be ‘Cool for the Summer,'” Demi told ELLE. “Just ’cause I feel like it matches the tone of this album. It’s got that guitar on it that would be perfect for this album, and you never know what I might do in the future.”
