Whether by accident or design, Demi Lovato has grown with her young audience -- from being the Disney darling of Camp Rock and Sonny With a Chance to self-medicating her way through a nervous breakdown and then becoming something of a remote mentor to teenage girls. This very public arc has both influenced Lovato's music -- which has shifted from straight-up pop toward more worldly hip-hop and R&B over the course of four albums -- and also somewhat overshadowed what is truly a rare voice. Lovato possesses a super-controlled, multi-octave belt that, in the Auto-Tune age, hits home harder onstage than on her superproduced recordings. The singer's latest studio outing, last year's Demi, melds turn-of-her-20s self-exploration with throbbing after-hours hedonism, while seldom losing sight of actual quality songwriting and singing amidst its club-ready electronica and block-levellin' kick 'n' snare.
