It’s not hard to argue that Demi Lovato has one of the most soulful voices in music today. While promoting her upcoming album, the singer has promised that fans will hear a lot of that soul soon. In order to help get the R&B sound, Demi revealed that she channeled another soulful pop star.
“I grew up listening to Christina Aguilera,” Demi told PEOPLE after her Spotify launch party. “She was one of my idols growing up. She still is. Her voice is incredible, and in [Aguliera’s 2002 album] ‘Stripped’ you really got to hear that.”
