The pop star released the song on Wednesday – less than three weeks before the US presidential election – amid the COVID-19 pandemic and national outrage over racial injustice in the United States.
“We are in a state of crisis, people are dying, while you are making so much money dishonestly,” Lovato sings. “Commander-in-Chief, what is it like to still be able to breathe?”
Lovato, 28, told CNN that the play allowed him to express what he wanted to convey to Trump.
“Many times I wanted to send a letter to President (Trump) or sit next to him and ask him these questions,” the singer told television.
“And then I thought I didn’t really want to do that, and I thought that one way I could do that was to write a song and release it so that everyone could hear it, and then he he will have to answer everyone and not just me to these questions, “Lovato added, according to Agerpres.
The pop star collaborated with Grammy Award-winning producer Finneas O’Connell and singer Billie Eilish’s older brother on “Commander in Chief,” in an effort to inspire people to vote in the presidential election.
