Demi Lovato and Marshmello have teamed up on a new song titled ‘OK Not to Be OK’. Released to coincide with World Suicide Prevention Day (September 10), the track is in partnership with with Hope for the Day, a not-for-profit agency which aims to raise awareness about suicide prevention and mental health education. Check it out below, alongside a music video directed by frequent collaborator Hannah Lux Davis (Ariana Grande, Drake).
Written by Gregory “Aldae” Hein, James Gutch and James Nicholas Bailey, the single serves “as a humbling reminder that it’s ok to let go of feelings of self-doubt and embrace the fact that we’re all human,” according to a press release.
“We are excited to be teaming up with Demi Lovato and Marshmello on this project to break the stigma around mental health on world suicide prevention day,” Hope for the Day founder Jonny Boucher commented in a statement. “Hope for the Day’s work in suicide prevention and mental health education thrives when we collaborate with others and what better than two of the largest artists in the world to work with on a track that reminds everyone, it’s OK not to be OK.”
Earlier this year, Lovato shared the song ‘I Love Me’ as well as the Sam Smith collaboration ‘I’m Ready’.
