We The Kings lead singer Travis Clark chatted with JSYK about Demi Lovato: ‘She’s incredible. She had been a good friend of ours for a while. I called her and was like, ‘Hey, I have this song. I’m gonna send it to you. Let me know what you think.’ I send her songs just to see what she thinks. She was like, ‘It’s absolutely amazing. It gave me chills.’ And I was like, ‘All right, well, do you want to sing it with me?’ And she’s like, ‘No way!’ She started freaking out.’
Travis said that their duet ‘We’ll Be a Dream’ is ‘all about growing up, being what you want to be, staying true to your roots, and finding love.” Wanting to represent both a male and a female in the song, he and his bandmates thought of Demi right away and brought her into the studio with them.
She’s a Disney star, and we knew that we might get hate on it or whatever [over working with her], but I think once people actually hear the song they’ll realize she’s actually a very incredibly talented singer. It makes the song, it really does.’ How did they meet Dem? Trav: ‘She actually came to one of our shows and she wanted to meet us, like two-and-a-half years ago. We just kind of hit it off. She was very cool. Every time we went out [on tour], she came to our shows.’
