Listen: Demi Lovato gets "Cool for the Summer"

Demi Lovato - Cool for the Summer | Random J Pop

As has become customary in the world of pop for the past decade: when one wants a hit, they get Max Martin on the blower. And that's exactly what Demi Lovato has done for her 15th single "Cool for the Summer" - which eschews tales of struggle and adversity in the place of girl on girl titillation, a call to remove all clothes and an F-bomb.

Yet another good Disney girl gone bad.

Max Martin's one amazing quality is that every song he does manages to sound familiar on a first listen. "Cool for the Summer" doesn't just ring with the familiarity of 80s electro-pop, but it also sounds like something you may have heard from one of the many female artists who have passed through Max's studio over the past 3 years - which can either be a really good or a really bad thing.

Part of singing on a song by Max Martin is the acceptance that you are interchangeable on the song itself. And that if you take the visual element out of the equation; the star of the show will not be you, but the production and the hook that won't quit for days. This is not always the case, as was proved by Britney back in the day, proven by P!nk and Kelly Clarkson on the virtue of their vocals and more recently by Taylor Swift. But not in Demi's case, who has managed to nab a song which sounds like something lifted from Katy Perry's Teenage dream and Prism, along with a single cover that bears more than a slight resemblance to Miley Cyrus' Bangerz.

Demi, who!?
