Single Review: “Let It Go” by Demi Lovato

Demi Lovato is one of the very few remaining Disney alumni who hasn’t gone the “Miley Way!”

That doesn’t mean she hasn’t matured because she definitely has. She didn’t have to go to the extremes to prove it which is one of the main reasons her fan base still consists largely of young teenagers and why also the parents of these teens still hold Demi in high respect compared to that of Miley Cyrus !


It is also worth pointing out that although Demi is a former Disney star, she hasn’t completely cut off ties with the said company. Hence, she retains the possibility of working with them again in future projects. You could say that Demi and Disney still have a good working relationship. This comfortable arrangement has become a rarity these days ! As what often happens, these former Disney stars make every effort to distance themselves from their “Disney past” and try their darned best to shed off all vestiges of a wholesome image that goes with it!


Demi Lovato has managed to maintain a relatively clean image ever since she broke away from Disney years ago. Whether this was her own decision or her management influenced her to it, the results speak for themselves. It seems shock value and public antics are not worth the time and day for this young Pop star. After all, she has some credible talent to carry off her career along the way.

Now, to the single itself.

In ‘Let It Go”, you wouldn’t hear anything new here that is completely outside of the box of Pop standards but the song structure is effective in getting the listener’s attention as it relies heavily on a catchy hook. Plus, Demi mentions repeatedly the song title as though she were in a recital. Thus, the positive message behind the lyrics is clear and that is: “Let not adversities and challenges get in your way from achieving your goals.”

It has become apparent that Demi Lovato’s progress in her vocal abilities can be attributed also to the fact that she has learned a lot from not only being able to observe and watch all the aspiring hopefuls auditioning in the ‘X-Factor’ but more so from listening to how the other three judges critique their performances.

You can’t discount the obvious, either, that her continuing tenure in the ‘X-Factor’ has become beneficial to her own growth as an artist  as these improvements in her singing can be heard in her contribution to the 3D animated film Frozen from Disney. You can hear her belt out with more confidence now as she cruises along in this inspirational power-ballad perfect for the holiday season.

Now, let’s turn our attention to the production of “Let It Go.”


The piano keys, infused drum-beat, and the semi-orchestral choir section are all pretty much a standard when it comes to Pop songs taken from the OST’s of Disney animated 3D films. The song itself and the movie match well together as they are complementary to the moviegoers’ experience– with both having a thematic feel to them.

This is a tell tale sign that Disney is pleased with Demi Lovato collaborating with them once again because she is given first nod here as her contribution to the OST of Frozen gets to be played first in the end credits of the 3D animated film.

All in all, this is another good outing from Demi Lovato.
