The track sees her touch on pretty hard-hitting topics.
"Were you ever taught when you were young / If you mess with things selfishly, they’re bound to come undone?" she begins.
via: Getty Images"Commander in Chief, honestly / If I did the things you do, I couldn't sleep." And it's safe to say, many aren't happy...
Although many of us also know her from Disney channel...Lovato was the star of Sonny with a Chance, which debuted in 2009. And who can forget Camp Rock?
Lovato has been open about her struggles with mental health...

Lovato also has a history of substance abuse.
Lovato opened up about her mental health for the first time in this infamous interview 7 years ago.
via: YouTubeWhile being interviewed on GMA, the star was candid and honest about her mental health struggles. This interview marked the first time the singer opened up about what had been going on behind closed doors.
This is not the only time that Lovato has shared her battle with self-love, recovery, and her eating disorder.YouTube documentary, Simply Complicated. The film followed her life and she spoke very candidly about her past drug addiction, battle with her weight, and taking control of her life.
Lovato had previously been sober for nearly 6 years, though her battle with an eating disorder is ongoing.she said in the film, after she admitted to recently relapsing and purging. The star has admitted that her "destructive behavior" stems from her eating disorder.
Her vulnerability and honesty are perhaps why fans feel so connected to Lovato.
Lovato explained that it's hard for her to not constantly think about her eating disorder.
via: Getty Images"I don’t want to give it the power that it controls my every thought, but it’s something that I’m constantly thinking about," she said.
Lovato spoke about how she's envious of people who don't deal with thoughts like these."I get envious towards people who don’t struggle with an eating disorder because I think my life would be so much easier."
Lovato explains that her toxic relationship with food started when she was a little girl.
via: Getty ImagesIn the documentary, Lovato says: "The food came first, when I was 8 years old and my little sister was born, a lot of the attention was taken off me and onto my little sister."
Emotional eating is common, and if not addressed can lead to unhealthy and dangerous habits.
via: Getty ImagesLovato explained that food often acted as a sort of "medicine" for her. "I had started working at that time and was under a lot of stress so I would bake cookies for my family, and I would eat all of them and nobody would have any to eat. That was my first memory of food being that medicine for me."
Her struggle with food often comes at highly emotional times in her life."When I was in a relationship, I went three years without purging and when we broke up that’s one of the first things I did," she says in the film.
Even though she continues to struggle with it, Lovato is one strong human being.
via: Getty ImagesIt takes true bravery to be honest with the world, and Lovato continues to do so through her personal posts on social media.
But in 2018, the singer had a relapse...reported that she was found unconscious and was revived with Narcan, a medication to reverse the effects of a narcotic overdose.
After spending time in a treatment facility, the singer addressed her relapse on Instagram...
Over the past year, she has remained relatively out of the spotlight.
Despite all that she has experienced, it's put her in the position to give advice to those younger than her.

But now Lovato is experimenting with a different style of song.
