Jam of the Week: "Heart Attack" by Demi Lovato

2013 promised to be the year in which several Disney starlets returned to music. Miley Cyrus, Hilary Duff, Selena Gomez, and Demi Lovato each announced that their fourth albums would be released at some point in the post-Mayan Apocalypse year. So far, however, only Demi has delivered.

"Heart Attack" is the lead single off her still-untitled album and boy is it a jam! It's not her best, but it's certainly the next logical step in her transition from Disney darling to mainstream pop star. (In case any of you are wondering, because I was, Demi is still signed to Disney's Hollywood Records.) She comes off as the next Kelly Clarkson, which is a nice identify for her to embrace after spending her first two albums in a directionless limbo.

So let Demi's palpitating single score your week. (And keep your fingers crossed that you'll see some other Disney starlets on Jam of the Week in the near future.)
