There have been a few things written in recent weeks lamenting the lack of an obvious “song of the summer” for 2016. If that’s the case, I move we hold over last year’s definitive summertime anthem, Demi Lovato’s steamy paean to seasonal Sapphic flings, “Cool for the Summer.” It’s the little details that make the vibrant pop song an enduring jam, even a year later: the horror-flick piano intro, the savage riff that kicks in for the pre-chorus, the little synth bloop that bubbles up just ahead of the chorus, the curvaceous way Demi sings, “body tyyyyyyyyype.” OMG, this song, you guys—it’s so awesome, it deserves two summers! Anyway, Lovato has done plenty before and since, but when she takes the stage at Moda Center tonight, it’s “Cool for the Summer” I’ll be anticipating. (Well, and “Give Your Heart a Break.”) Lovato’s fellow former-teen-star-turned-sultry-adult Nick Jonas will be there, too. BEN SALMON
