Demi Lovato has released her third single from her upcoming album Tell Me You Love Me due to be released at the end of September. “You Don’t Do It For Me Anymore” follows previously released singles “Sorry Not Sorry” and “Tell Me You Love Me” from the highly anticipated sixth album by the Disney actress turned pop/R&B singer. Fan reaction to “You Don’t Do It For Me Anymore” has been significant and demand for Lovato’s new album is high.
While many fans suspect the song is about Lovato’s breakup with actor Wilmer Valderrama, Lovato has given several explanations as to the meaning behind the lyrics. Still, fan reaction indicates that Demi Lovato’s “You Don’t Do It For Me Anymore” may go down in history as the number one best breakup anthem of all time.
“You Don’t Do It For Me” was released through Demi Lovato’s official website and partnered music streaming sites. You can listen to the song in its entirety in the video player below.
“You Don’t Do It For Me Anymore” is a highly emotional, powerhouse ballad that not only shows off Demi’s impressive vocal skills but also perfectly expresses the death or end of a relationship.
Though nearly everyone has expressed belief the song is about Lovato’s 2016 breakup with Valderrama, whom she had been romantically involved with for six years, Lovato explained the song and its lyrics hold several meanings. You may hear Demi Lovato speak about the song and its meaning on the Radio Show in the video clip below.

When a fan posted on Twitter that they thought “You Don’t Do It For Me Anymore” would have greater meaning and impact if it were about herself, rather than a relationship, Demi Lovato replied to the tweet.
She confirmed that the song was about her old self, rather than just being about a relationship. She has also stated the song is about her past addictions with drugs and alcohol.
