Back in Dec. 2006, P!nk released her open letter to then-president George W. Bush as the fifth single off her fourth studio album, I’m Not Dead. Collaborating with the Indigo Girls, the pop singer took aim at Bush and his administration on everything from the Iraq War and No Child Left Behind to opposing gay marriage, and the former president’s reported drinking and drug use during his college days at Yale and Harvard Business School.

While the protest song failed to chart on the Hot 100, it did find major success across the Atlantic at the time, becoming a Top 5 hit in countries like Germany, Switzerland and Australia and even peaking at No. 1 in Belgium and Austria.

Lovato, meanwhile, performed her thematic successor to the track for the first time at the 2020 Billboard Music Awards. It has since charted at No. 22 on Billboard’s Digital Song Sales chart.

Watch Lovato’s full interview with Meyers — including how she found out the results of the 2020 presidential election — below.
