DEMI

"Really Don't Care" is a song by Demi Lovato featuring Cher Lloyd. This song was released as the fourth and final single from Demi's album "Demi” on May 20, 2014.

Commerical Performance

Before it was released as a single, "Really Don't Care" debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 at number 98. After it was released as a single, it peaked at number 26 making it Lovato's eighth top 40 entry on the Hot 100 and making Cher Lloyd's third entry on that chart and second top 40 single since her song "Want U Back". On the US Dance Chart, it became Lovato's third number one and Lloyd's first number one on that chart. As of October 2017, "Really Don't Care" has sold over 952,000 digital downloads in the United States.

Critical Reception

Billboard writer Jason Lipshutz praised Lovato's "sassy" confidence on the track, which effectively showcases her "overpowering pipes". He also commented positively on the placement of the song on the track list, noting that "Really Don't Care" serves a "buoyant reprieve" after more emotionally heavy tracks. Sam Lansky of Idolator described the song as "irresistibly spunky", but found Lloyd's short feature to be superfluous. 4Music called the song "a brilliant break-up survival anthem that sticks it to every annoying ex ever". On the other hand, Melinda Newman of HitFix found the song to be too generic, comparing it to Icona Pop's breakout hit "I Love It" (2012).

Lyrics

You wanna play, you wanna stay, you wanna have it all
You started messing with my head until I hit a wall
Maybe I should've known, maybe I should've known
That you would walk, you would walk out the door, hey!

Said we were done, then met someone and rubbed it in my face
Cut to the part, she broke your heart, and then she ran away
I guess you should've known, I guess you should've known
That I would talk, I would talk

But even if the stars and moon collide
I never want you back into my life
You can take your words and all your lies
Oh, oh, oh, I really don't care
Even if the stars and moon collide
I never want you back into my life
You can take your words and all your lies
Oh, oh, oh, I really don't care
Oh, oh, oh, I really don't care

I can't believe I ever stayed up writing songs about you
You don't deserve to know the way I used to think about you
Oh no not anymore, oh no not anymore
You had your shot, had your shot, but you let go

Now if we meet out on the street I won't be running scared
I'll walk right up to you and put one finger in the air
And make you understand, and make you understand
You had your chance, had your chance

But even if the stars and moon collide
I never want you back into my life
You can take your words and all your lies
Oh, oh, oh, I really don't care
Even if the stars and moon collide
I never want you back into my life
You can take your words and all your lies
Oh, oh, oh, I really don't care
Oh, oh, oh, I really don't care

[Cher Lloyd]
Yeah, listen up
Hey, hey, never look back,
Dumb struck boy, ego intact
Look boy, why you so mad
Second guessin', but should've hit that
Hey, Demi, you picked the wrong lover
Should've picked that one, he's cuter than the other
I just wanna laugh, 'cause you're tryna be a hipster
Kick him to the curb, take a Polaroid picture

But even if the stars and moon collide
I never want you back into my life
You can take your words and all your lies
Oh, oh, oh, I really don't care
Even if the stars and moon collide
I never want you back into my life
You can take your words and all your lies
Oh, oh, oh, I really don't care
Oh, oh, oh, I really don't care
