Demi Lovato Chases Happily Ever After In Her “Tell Me You Love Me” Music Video
Demi Lovato is a beautiful but tragic bride in the music video for her new single, “Tell Me You Love Me.” The soaring midtempo features a desperate plea for affection, and its accompanying visual is a tearjerker as it chronicles the highs and lows of a relationship in peril. Released today (December 1), it follows her and her fiancé Jesse Williams through a tempestuous engagement.
“I’m supposed to take your bullshit for better of for worse? Is that the way it works,” Jesse asks with a laugh as he proposes in an extended introduction. Unfortunately, jealousy and frustration threaten to rip the happy couple apart as their wedding day looms in the Mark Pellington-directed visual. Their initial joy transforms into a more tepid sort of resolve as they brace for a series of battles.
“It’s possible we’re not ready,” he hesitantly murmurs in a moment of clarity. However, Demi is insistent. “We’re ready. I’ve never been more ready,” she assures her beloved. Cut to the next day, when the hitmaker is resplendent in her wedding gown. As she walks down the aisle, the scene is intercut with footage of the troubled relationship culminating in a painful moment of heartbreak. “Everything I need, is standing right in front of me. I know that we will be alright,” she sings with resolute hope as everything falls to pieces around her.
After showcasing her unapologetic side in the video for “Sorry Not Sorry,” her latest is a much more fragile affair. The sprawling release is visually arresting and emotionally encapsulating. It is easily one of Demi’s strongest efforts to date and promises big things to come as the siren reaches a new creative pinnacle.
With “Sorry Not Sorry” still holding court within the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 and “Echame La Culpa” showing early signs of becoming a streaming behemoth, Demi is riding a serious high. “Tell Me You Love Me” has garnered overwhelmingly positive reviews and shows potential to become another hit. The visual is sure to go viral and will only give the track a push as it begins to take off. Watch her blushing bride moment up top!
