Demi Lovato belts out a candid message to President Trump in her new political ballad, Commander In Chief.

The pop star released the song Wednesday (Oct 14) – less than three weeks before the 2020 US presidential election – amid the coronavirus pandemic and the push against racial injustice in the United States.

"We're in a state of crisis, people are dying, while you line your pockets deep," Lovato sings. "Commander in chief, how does it feel to still be able to breathe?"

Lovato, 28, told CNN that the song allowed her to express what she's wanted to say to Trump.

"There's been so many times that I've wanted to write the president a letter or sit down with him and ask him these questions," she explained to the news outlet.

"And then I thought, I don't really actually want to do that and I thought one way that I could do that is writing a song and releasing it for the whole world to hear and then he has to answer those questions to everyone and not just me," Lovato continued.

Lovato teamed up with Grammy-winning producer Finneas O'Connell – the older brother of singer Billie Eilish – on Commander In Chief in an effort to inspire people vote in the presidential election. – New York Daily News/Tribune News Service
