The singer, whose hits include Sorry Not Sorry and Heart Attack, previously described her near death experience as her “miracle day”.

This is the third documentary featuring Lovato.

The 2012 film Stay Strong explored her recovery after she cancelled a tour with the Jonas Brothers to enter rehab.

In 2017’s Simply Complicated, Lovato admitted she had been dishonest in Stay Strong and had been under the influence of cocaine during the making of the film.

Demi Lovato: Dancing With The Devil will premiere on YouTube on March 23.
