Demi Lovato, who’s half Mexican on her father’s side, has been getting in touch with her Latino roots through music. Last November, the singer showed off her Spanish-speaking skills in a track with “Despacito’s” Luis Fonsi titled “Échame La Culpa,” which shot up to No. 1 on Billboard‘s Latin Airplay Chart and currently sits at No. 2. Now, Lovato is upping her game with the release of a Spanish-language version of megahit “Tell Me You Love Me” in honor of International Women’s Day.

This release comes in partnership with Spotify for their initiative Amplify, a hub “that highlights, empowers, and amplifies important topics and marginalized voices,” and also the streaming giant’s “Women of Latin” initiative, that gives a platform to the diverse voices of Latin women in the music industry.

“I’ve been wanting to release a version of #TellMeYouLoveMe in Spanish for awhile now,” the popstar wrote on Instagram. “Thank you @Spotify for helping put this together.”

In the promo video, Lovato said: “I’ve become more secure in myself as a woman. It’s kind of the same way with being an artist in music. I’ve just kind of grown into myself.” Embracing her Latin heritage seems to be part of her evolution. Back in 2014, Lovato admitted that she took her ancestral history for granted in her early youth. “Growing up in America, I never really appreciated my culture,” Lovato told Glam Belleza Latina magazine: “I knew what being Hispanic was, but I thought that since I didn’t look Hispanic, I was white.”

The original English version of “Tell Me You Love Me” was released last summer. The wedding-themed music video for the song, featuring Grey’s Anatomy‘s Jesse Williams, was Lovato’s “favorite video yet.”
