Sexy Dirty Love

Album: Tell Me You Love Me (2017)

Songfacts®:

  • Demi Lovato kicks off "Sexy Dirty Love" singing seductive lyrics about phone sexting, and by the chorus she's lusting for her crush. Like her 2016 single "Body Say," this teeters on the edge of NSFW. Asked by NPR's Alisa Chang, who she writing the song for, Lovato replied:

    "I was writing this song for somebody that I was really interested in — somebody that I had been talking to, that I had a crush on. And, you know, when you go into the studio, you feel very inspired by the things that are happening in your daily life and this was where I was at. I was feeling confident, feeling sexy and I wanted to write a song about it."
