On the Line

Album: Don't Forget (2008)
Charted: 100

Songfacts®:

  • Throughout the summer of 2008 Demi Lovato was touring with the Jonas Brothers and it was no surprise that they hooked up together to write some songs for her album. She told MTV News about this track: "I did a duet with the Jonas Brothers on my album, and we wrote the song together. It's like a break-up song, and it's called 'On the Line.' Just look at how successful they are. I would love to have their input anytime, because they're obviously doing something right."
    Lovato then explained how the brothers helped her: "I tend to write songs that are, I guess, a little bit more intense and less catchy, and I needed help writing catchy songs. So that's where they came in. I put a lot of my musical input and lyrics into these songs, and they just helped me with hooks and stuff like that."
