Demi is the eponymous fourth studio album by American singer Demi Lovato. It was released on May 10, 2013, by Hollywood Records. Looking to transition from their self-described "generic" third album Unbroken (2011), Lovato wanted their fourth album to "have songs that excited them". Demi is primarily a pop record with elements of synthpop, and bubblegum pop. The album was recorded between 2012 and 2013, when Lovato served as a judge during the second season of The X Factor USA.
Demi received generally favorable reviews from music critics, who complimented Lovato's vocal performance. The album debuted at number three on the US Billboard 200 with first-week sales of 110,000 copies. The album also reached the top five in Canada, Ireland, Italy, Mexico and Spain. It has since sold 490,000 digital copies in the US and been certified Gold by the RIAA.
The album's lead single, "Heart Attack" peaked at number ten on the Billboard Hot 100, marking Lovato's third US top-ten single, and has been certified double platinum by the RIAA. The second single "Made in the USA" peaked at number 80, while later singles "Neon Lights" and "Really Don't Care" both reached the top 40 peaking at 36 and 26, respectively, and both have been certified platinum by RIAA. Lovato supported the album in two concert tours: The Neon Lights Tour in early 2014 and the Demi World Tour between late 2014 and 2015.
