Demi Lovato says it was a challenge filming her new music video “Dancing with the Devil”.
The 28-year-old singer opened up about the challenge in an Instagram post that showed a clip from the video, which recreated moments from her near-fatal drug overdose in 2018, according to Genius.
“Creating the music video for #DancingWithTheDevil wasn’t the easiest shoot I’ve ever done,” Lovato wrote in his post on Saturday. “I create my art to heal and to inspire others. I am here today and I am glad you are too.”

The clip alternates between a scene where Lovato wears a green jacket similar to what she would have worn the night of her overdose and a scene where Lovato is lying in a hospital bed with a nasal catheter.
“I was dancing with the devil, out of control / I almost made it to heaven / It was closer than you think,” Lovato sings emotionally in his video. “Playing with the enemy, playing with my soul / It’s so hard to say no / When you dance with the devil.”
