Demi Lovato reflected on her collaboration with Ariana Grande for “Met Him Last Night” from her latest music album, “Dancing With the Devil … The Art of Starting Over.”
“I played her ‘Dancing With the Devil’ and she was really, really excited about that and she came up with this concept,” Lovato shared. “When she played it for me, I was like ‘Oh my gosh, yes, absolutely! I would love to do this.'”
“I was so excited to get to work with her and we had so much fun singing together,” Lovato added.
“This song was best representative of a period of my life that… I talk about in my documentary, which is kind of the downfalls of recovery,” she continued. “Which is that sometimes you slip up, which is what this song is about.”
“I wrote it for my little sister, Madison. We didn’t know how bad my brain damage would be [after her overdose],” Lovato recalled. “When I woke up in the hospital, I couldn’t see her, and that’s what this song is about: not being able to see her but, at the same time, I use the lyrics, ‘I was blind, but now I see, and I see you.’ I’m talking about, no matter what, always being able to see my little sister.”
“I actually played it for her in the car after she graduated high school,” she continued. “I was like, ‘Hey, I have a little present for you.’ We both were just sobbing the whole time because that moment was really emotional for the both of us.”
The album contains 19 tracks:
“Anyone,” “Dancing with the Devil,” “ICU (Madison’s Lullabye),” “Intro,” “The Art of Starting Over,” “Lonely People,” “The Way You Don’t Look At Me,” “Melon Cake,” “Met Him Last Night (feat.

Saweetie),” “California Sober,” “Mad World,” “Butterfly,” and “Good Place.”
