In March, the artiste released her self-reflective single “I love me”, following up with the collaboration, “I’m ready”, with Sam Smith in April.
She also partnered with Marshmello to release “Ok not to be ok” on World Suicide Prevention Day, which aimed to destigmatise mental health. In a collaboration with Finneas, Lovato also released “Commander in chief”, a track criticising US President Donald Trump ahead of the election. She will also be performing at the Billboard Music Awards. The People’s Choice Awards will recognise Tyler Perry as this year’s People’s Champion for his humanitarian efforts amid the Covid pandemic and this year’s protests for Black rights.
