The story behind ‘Substance’ by Demi Lovato

During the Audacy Check In, Bru mentioned that the song obviously had a meaning behind it — and asked if Demi would explain.

Without hesitation, she preceded to explain the story behind her new single.

“I feel like we live in a world where it lacks so much depth. We’re all connecting through social media. We won’t see a friend for three years but we’ll be talking through social media all the time. That human connection is what we’re missing,” she explained.
