Demi Lovato Releases Live GRAMMYs Performance Of New Song "Anyone"
Just following her unforgettably touching performance and highly anticipated return to music’s forefront at the 2020 GRAMMYs, Demi Lovato has released a new version of her latest single "Anyone." The surprise release is an extended live recording of "Anyone" taken from the two-time GRAMMY nominee's emotional performance of the song on Music's Biggest Night.
Upon debuting the song on GRAMMY Sunday, "Anyone" broke Billboard’s Hot 100 chart shortly after, emerging at the 34th position. "Anyone" has since amassed over seven million streams and over 40,000 downloads, according to Billboard, making the track Lovato’s first number one on the Digital Song Sales chart and also her 14th top 40 hit.
Shortly after, On Sunday (Feb. 2), Lovato performed an equally remarkable rendition of the U.S. National Anthem for the NFL Super Bowl LIV, accomplishing perhaps one of her biggest career landmarks yet, performance-wise. In a Feb. 7, 2010 tweet, she wrote, "One day, I'm gonna sing the national anthem at a super bowl…”
Coming off of the pair of powerhouse performances, she took to social media to express her gratitude for fan support and announce the GRAMMY performance release of "Anyone."
"Your support has been incredible since the release of 'Anyone.' I’m so blown away by the stories you’ve shared connecting with the song in your own way," she wrote in an Instagram post announcing the track’s release this morning. "I hear you, and thank you for listening."
As Lovato’s GRAMMY performance marked her first time back on stage in almost two years, the release of “Anyone” is the artist’s first single since 2018’s “Sober,” and could hint at an upcoming follow-up to her 2017 album Tell Me You Love Me.
Lovato's "Anyone," recorded live from the 62nd Annual GRAMMYs is now available on all streaming platforms here.
