Demi Lovato's "Waitin For You" Video: Demi Recalls Childhood Bullying

We already identified "Waitin for You" as a standout on Demi Lovato's new Confident album, and now the dark, Sirah-assisted track has a badass video with a touching message to accompany it.

The black-and-white video sees Demi spitting the tough lyrics ("So when the lights go down and the sun hits ground / You should know that I won't back down, I'll be waitin' for you") looking straight at the camera, unwavering in her aggressive eye contact.

But the best part of the video has to be towards the end when we see Demi confidently strut away from Cross Timbers Middle School in Grapevine, Tex.—a.k.a. the school which Demi begged to leave after intense bullying, and was the source for the singer's eating disorder later in life.

Clearly, we know who wound up on top and it's awesome to see Lovato (literally) leaving her past behind in the latest top-notch visual from Confident. "Waitin' For You" follows the title track"Cool for the Summer" and a stark live performance of "Stone Cold."
