All Disney-stars-turned-Pop-sensations take note - This is how you properly transition into the Alternative R&B scene from whatever Genre your origins are based in. Lovato has spent years over-singing - to a near diva-esque level - in Pop Rock arrangements for pretty much her entire career, so when she steps out she must do so in style, something she clearly understands to the nth degree by this display's account. "Sorry Not Sorry" released to virtually universal acclaim, a welcome departure from Lovato's less-relatable Teen Pop days, giving listeners the ultimate summer party jam in 2017; It's a fetishized display of carefree attitude, promiscuity & youthful abandon which encourages any & all who're listening to get off their asses and socialize.
Dance Pop had taken such a sharp turn into immaturity in recent years - idolizing a fuck-off mentality & a desire to eternally slack off - that the old-school pool-party aesthetic seemed to have fizzled out, the act of having fun apparently losing its "cool factor" for absolutely no reason at all; That didn't stop Lovato though, reinvigorating the scene by dropping a track so tightly produced it even convinced the ultimate hype-man himself, Jamie Foxx, to make a cameo in her mega-rager music video. A little word to the wise - When actual celebrities want to show up to your video-shoot instead of you just having to hire fans or stand-ins, there's something special going on. Since its conception, "Sorry Not Sorry" has been blasting eternally - regardless of season - from every available sound-system, to the point where there's no doubt whatsoever it has been ingrained in the very fabric of this era's pop culture, destined to be included in Top Ten party mixes alongside such greats as Montell Jordan's "This Is How We Do It" or Bruno Mars' infinitely swag-alicious "24K Magic." If Lovato's wise, she'll ride that residual paycheck right into retirement, unlikely to create a jam that can top this.
