After this heartbreaking track we move on to Heaven 😇, another sexually charged song in which Demi makes reference to the biblical verse 5:30 from the apostle Matthew. What does Demi bring us with this song? A true ode to female masturbation, Demi even has her own sex toy, the Demi Wand. Going to hell has never been so good and, without a doubt, it’s like going to heaven.
We travel to Los Angeles with City of Angels. Demi has been living in the city of stars for 15 years and now she wants to discover it from a different perspective. In the almost three minutes that the song lasts, she makes clear references to sexual exploration. Demi leaves little to the imagination 🔥 This is not the only statement of intent that can be extracted from this song, as Demi also makes a subtle reference to her gender fluidity, as she declared herself a non-binary person in May 2021.
You call me they but I’m still daddy’s girlCome make my day and rock my world by
Christening the city of angels
What happens when you like someone? Well, you want to eat them up, and that’s precisely what Bones is about, a dark but fast-paced track that reflects those almost obsessive feelings that we’ve all had at some point. Demi wrote this song in the garden of her house with Dead Sara, with whom she shares vocals on one of the best tracks on Holy Fvck 🦴
Selfishly speaking, I want all of you to myself
And one day I’m gonna leave you needing nobody else
Don’t let the title make you think Wasted is about Demi’s addictions, because with this track we move into more romantic terrain. Age makes you realise when you’ve fallen in love – butterflies in your stomach, being on cloud nine? Demi defines it in other ways, and we love it.
I’m wasted (Wasted, wasted)
I’m faded (Faded, faded)
The highest high can’t hold a candle to
Getting wasted on you
We continue with the love and the happiness that Come Together produces. Have you ever felt that a person was for you just by meeting them? That’s exactly what this song is about, and being close to the precipice has never been so appetising. Although it is a little less explicit than her album mates, it also refers to sex 😏
Despite her youth, several of Demi’s friends have already passed away due to their addictions and other health problems. She sings to them in Dead Friends, an anthem that picks up pace as it goes along and is sure to bring a tear to your eye 😭 It was the first song she wrote on the album, just at a time when she had lost one of her closest friends and with whom she shared part of her path to sobriety.
I danced with the devil
I made it through hell and I don’t know why
How am I different?
I did and they didn’t and it doesn’t feel right
We take a step forward with Help Me, in which Demi, along with Dead Sara, claims that her life is hers and that she doesn’t give a damn about the opinions that others post on the Internet. Since the beginning of her career, fans and non-fans alike have always speculated about her problems and what’s best for Demi, and she wants to put an end to that with this great song.
Which side of us rules? The good side, or the bad side? This dichotomy is what Feed is about, a ballad in which Demi takes as a reference an indigenous proverb that talks about the two wolves inside us, and that fight between them to put happiness and positivity before negativity and jealousy… Which one wins? We decide, and as Demi says, she is the one who runs her own life 🐺
We end Holy Fvck with 4 ever 4 me, Demi’s most romantic and vulnerable track, inspired by Iris from Goo Goo Dolls. She describes how she has fallen completely in love, but with whom? 😍 The recipient of such a beautiful track is indie artist Jute$, who Demi fell in love with during the songwriting sessions for Substance, Happy Ending and City of Angels.
They say you know when you find the one
Just a look from you, I come undone
So here I go speaking honestly
I think this is forever for me
Will he be the definitive one? Let’s hope so, and that she gets all the best out of life, because it’s hard to find vocalists who put so much passion into their songs and what they do, showing themselves to be totally vulnerable. Are you ready to discover Holy Fvck for yourself? Without a doubt, this album is a listening experience, and Demi never disappoints us with her vocal ability and her harmonies within this rock and punk universe 🎸
The process of making this album has been the most fulfilling yet, and I’m grateful to my fans and collaborators for being on this journey with me. Never have I been more sure of myself and my music, and this record speaks that for itself. To my Lovatics who have been rocking out with me since the beginning and those who are just now coming along for the ride, thank you. This record is for you.
