Demi Lovato’s "Dancing With The Devil" Video Recreates Moments From The Day She Overdosed

Demi Lovato isn’t holding back on her seventh studio album Dancing With the Devil… The Art of Starting Over. The title track, which shares the same name as her new YouTube docuseries, is one of the most honest songs she’s released in her career because it recounts her past with addiction. As you can expect, Demi Lovato’s "Dancing With The Devil" music video is just as emotional because it goes into what happened the night of her overdose in July 2018. (CONTENT WARNING: This article discusses eating disorders, substance abuse, and sexual assault.)

Lovato gave fans a glimpse into her new visual on Wednesday, March 31, with a series of behind-the-scenes photos of her on set. Fans knew the video was going to be heartbreaking because the pictures showed her at a bar, on a gurney, and in a hospital bed. According to Entertainment Weekly, Lovato even recreated the same hair, makeup, and outfit she wore the night of her overdose. While reliving one of her darkest moments wasn’t easy, Lovato said it was a way to show the reality of addiction. "Sometimes being descriptive can be triggering, but that’s the sad, sad truth of how dark it can get," she said. "That’s important to give people, too."
