"Cool for the Summer" is the lead single from Demi Lovato's fifth studio album, "Confident". It was released on July 1, 2015.

Background

During the production of the fifth album, Demi commented:

Demi: I've already started recording for my new album, and I have plans to record during the tour. The sound just evolves into everything that I've been and everything that I want to become.
I've never been so sure of myself as an artist when it comes down to confidence, but not only personal things, but exactly what I want my sound to be and what I know I'm capable of and this album will give me the opportunity to show people what I can really do.
In May 2015, Billboard revealed Lovato was in the process of starting an "artist-centric" new record label, Safehouse Records, of which she will be co-owner. The label will be a partnership between her, Nick Jonas, and Lovato's manager Phil McIntyre, and will form part of a new collaborative arrangement with record label Island.[1]

On June 6, 2015, while headlining at the DigiFest NYC, she revealed to the audiences:

Demi: It’s going to be a real exciting summer for my fans, I cannot wait for you guys to hear some new music.
The song was recorded in Max Martin's production studios Wolf Cousins, formed in Stockholm in 2013. Demi released a video on her official YouTube account on October 10, 2015 explaining the meaning behind the song.[2]

The lyrics have the Demi discussing a very sexual summer affair, along with a suggestive music video in which articles of clothing can be seen strewn around a crazy party scene.

Music Video

The music video released on July 23, 2015 on Vevo. The video was directed by Hannah Lux Davis and shot in Los Angeles, California from June 29–30, 2015.[3]

The video begins with Lovato cruising with her friends around a city. The scene is intercut with a scene where Lovato, wearing black latex, sings and whips her hair around in an isolated location.[4] The video continues with Lovato and her friends arriving at a party and cuts between a number of scenes showing people on a trampoline, and Lovato dancing and having fun at the party.[5]

Lyrics

Tell me what you want
What you like
It's okay
I'mma little curious too
Tell me if it's wrong
If it's right
I don't care
I can keep a secret could, you?

Got my mind on your body
And your body on my mind
Got a taste for the cherry
I just need to take a bite
Don't tell your mother
Kiss one another
Die for each other
We're cool for the summer
(Ha)

Ooh
Ooh
Take me down into your paradise
Don't be scared cause I'm your body type
Just something that we wanna try
Cause you and I
We're cool for the summer

Tell me if I won
If I did
What's my prize?
I just wanna play with you, too
Even if they judge
Fuck it all
Do the time
I just wanna have some fun with you

Got my mind on your body
And your body on my mind
Got a taste for the cherry
I just need to take a bite
Don't tell your mother
Kiss one another
Die for each other
We're cool for the summer
(Ha)

Ooh
Ooh
Take me down into your paradise
Don't be scared cause I'm your body type
Just something that we wanna try
Cause you and I
We're cool for the summer
(Ha)
We're cool for the summer
We're cool for the summer

Shhhh...don't tell your mother
Got my mind on your body
And your body on my mind
Got a taste for the cherry
I just need to take a bite
Take me down into your paradise
Don't be scared cause I'm your body type
Just something that we wanna try
Cause you and I
We're cool for the summer

(Take me down) We're cool for the summer
(Don't be scared) Cause I'm your body type
Just something that we wanna try
Cause you and I
We're cool for the summer
(Ha)
Ooh
We're cool for the summer
