Background

On June 29, 2017, Lovato published a trio of pictures in her Instagram and Twitter account showing an acronym titled "SNS" causing rumors about a possible new single.[2] Five days after, She confirmed the release of a song via an Instagram video, and teased an instrumental of the song, the following day, Lovato posted a video on her Twitter revealing the title "Sorry Not Sorry".[3] Lovato explained to Amazon Music that "Sorry Not Sorry" is a song for the "haters" that is basically saying "you know what I'm good now and sorry I'm not sorry that you may not be loving where your life is at the moment."[4]

Many fans correctly guessed the title before Demi even revealing it. She first performed the single the night before its release at a fan listening party held in Los Angeles.

She subsequently performed the song at other house parties.[5][6] On August 18, 2017, Demi made the first televised performance of the song on Good Morning America. On August 27, 2017, Demi performed the song in Las Vegas as a pre-recorded performance for the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards[7] and received a nomination for 2017 MTV Video Music Awards in the "Song Of The Summer" category.[8]

Demi: "This is one of my favorites and the first single off of the album. I wanted to kick off the launch of my new music in a fun and upbeat way. A lot of people on my team wanted to go with another song as the first single, and I really pushed for 'Sorry Not Sorry.' We also had a blast making the music video, and the song is an unapologetic anthem for all the haters out there. It's basically a message that says I'm gonna live my life and choose my happiness on my own terms, and I won't apologize for it."

Lyrics

[Intro]
Payback is a bad bitch
And baby, I'm the baddest

[Verse 1]
Now I'm out here looking like revenge
Feelin' like a 10, the best I ever been
And yeah, I know how bad it must hurt
To see me like this, but it gets worse (wait a minute)
Now you're out here looking like regret
Ain't too proud to beg, second chance you'll never get
And yeah, I know how bad it must hurt to see me like this
But it gets worse (wait a minute)

[Pre-Chorus]
Now payback is a bad bitch
And baby, I'm the baddest
You fuckin' with a savage
Can't have this, can't have this (ah)
And it'd be nice of me to take it easy on ya, but nah

[Chorus]
Baby, I'm sorry (I'm not sorry)
Baby, I'm sorry (I'm not sorry)
Being so bad got me feelin' so good
Showing you up like I knew that I would
Baby, I'm sorry (I'm not sorry)
Baby, I'm sorry (I'm not sorry)
Feeling inspired 'cause the tables have turned
Yeah, I'm on fire and I know that it burns

[Verse 2]
Baby, fineness is the way to kill
Tell me how it feel, bet it's such a bitter pill
And yeah, I know you thought you had bigger, better things
Bet right now this stings (wait a minute)
'Cause the grass is greener under me
Bright as technicolor, I can tell that you can see
And yeah, I know how bad it must hurt to see me like this
But it gets worse (wait a minute)

[Pre-Chorus]
Now payback is a bad bitch
And baby, I'm the baddest
You fuckin' with a savage
Can't have this, can't have this (ah)
And it'd be nice of me to take it easy on ya, but nah

[Chorus]
Baby, I'm sorry (I'm not sorry)
Baby, I'm sorry (I'm not sorry)
Being so bad got me feelin' so good
Showing you up like I knew that I would
Baby, I'm sorry (I'm not sorry)
Baby, I'm sorry (I'm not sorry)
Feeling inspired 'cause the tables have turned
Yeah, I'm on fire and I know that it burns

[Bridge]
Talk that talk, baby
Better walk, better walk that walk, baby
If you talk, if you talk that talk, baby
Better walk, better walk that walk, baby
Oh yeah
Talk that talk, baby
Better walk, better walk that walk, baby
If you talk, if you talk that talk, baby
Better walk, better walk that walk, baby

[Chorus]
Baby, I'm sorry (I'm not sorry)
Baby, I'm sorry (I'm not sorry)
Being so bad got me feelin' so good
Showing you up like I knew that I would
Baby, I'm sorry (I'm not sorry)
Baby, I'm sorry (I'm not sorry)
Feeling inspired 'cause the tables have turned
Yeah, I'm on fire and I know that it burns

[Outro]
Payback is a bad bitch
And baby, I'm the baddest
I'm the baddest, I'm the baddest
