‘The Young and the Restless’ alum Max Ehrich released a song titled ‘Afraid’ about his ex-fiancée, Demi Lovato on October 16; one month after Lovato had ended their engagement.
In order to release the news regarding his new single, which came after Lovato’s politically charged track ‘Commander in Chief,’ Ehrich took to Instagram.

The song includes the lyrics that directly addresses ‘Sonny With a Chance’ star ending the relationship following Ehrich’s past messages to Adriana Grande, Selena Gomez, and Miley Cyrus:
“I’m afraid to give up my heart / I’m afraid to be overthrown / But afraid / Afraid to be alone / And you, you’re so amazing / Smile so sweet / Makes honey taste bitter / You’re so beautiful
Afraid, afraid, afraid of losing / Afraid of bruising / Don’t want to have a big hole in my heart”
Ehrich, who said his grandmother encouraged him to continue making music, also told the world that the music video for ‘Afraid’ was out with an Instagram post that reads:
“🤍 it’s scary to fall in love. but it’s a risk worth taking. for in the end; all we truly need is love. Directed by @taylorcutfilms”
As might be recalled, his ex-fiancée Lovato also launched ‘Still Have Me’ that is inspired by their split, on September 30.
‘Afraid’ is now available on all streaming platforms.
