The All-New CD From Disney’s Shake It up

A concept music video of the debut single, “Contagious Love,” featuring Bella Thorne and Zendaya, and directed by Justin Francis ( Demi Lovato , Black Eyed Peas, Gwen Stefani ) debuts on Disney Channel Friday, March 1. Another focus track, “This is My Dance Floor ” by Bella and Zendaya, will be featured in an upcoming lyrics-based video airing on Disney Channel in March; the video made its online debut on Feb. 11.

Songs featured on the album are:

  1. Contagious Love” by Zendaya and Bella Thorne is an upbeat rap anthem with a heavy-hitting bass-and-drum foundation. Its sweet harmonies and catch chorus echo the song’s universal message about living life to the fullest.
  2. “This Is My Dance Floor,” also from Bella Thorne and Zendaya, is an intense, synth-driven track about showing everyone who’s boss when it comes to owning the floor.
  3. “Beat of My Drum ” by Zendaya is a smoldering track with a pan-African vibe and a fierce beat.
  4. “Blow the System,” with its classic disco beat backed by Bella Thorne ‘s vocals, compares a marathon dance party with rolling the dice on love.
  5. “After Party” by “Shake It Up” co-stars Roshon Fegan and Caroline Sunshine , features a gritty shuffle sound, crazy hard beats in a tale of a party that lasts all night long.
  6. “Holla at the DJ (The DJ Mike D Remix),” a track from the upcoming EP by Hollywood Records artist Coco Jones, is a hip-hop leavened musical conversation between a dancer and her accommodating DJ.
  7. “These Boots Are Made for Walkin'” is a stunning remake of the 1966 Nancy Sinatra classic, here updated for the smartphone era, performed by the star of the Disney XD series “Kickin’ It,” Olivia Holt .
  8. “Sharp as a Razor” by Hollywood Records’ artists McClain Sisters is a sophisticated R&B-flavored dance track that offers a twist on that special relationship between dancer and DJ when both are in synch.
  9. “Future Sounds Like Us” by rising star Dove Cameron is a bright and boisterous tribute to Dance Nation.
  10. “I Can Do Better” by Y.LA borrows a page from Irving Berlin in this up-tempo track about the ultimate dance contest.
  11. Superstar Selena Gomez ‘s popular “Shake It Up” theme song gets an update from 16-year old producer/DJ Cole Plante’s shuffle-infused Reboot remix.

As a bonus, the album includes the smooth and soulful track “We’re Dancing ( Alex Ghenea 3.0 Remix)” by Hollywood Records artist Bridgit Mendler .

With the third season of the dance-driven comedy series well under way, “Shake It Up” remains the #1 live-action TV series in its time period among Kids 2-11 and Kids 6-11. The show chronicles the adventures of best friends CeCe ( Bella Thorne ) and Rocky (Zendaya), whose dreams of becoming professional dancers are realized when they land roles as background dancers on the most popular teen dance show, “Shake It Up, Chicago!”

Executive produced by Rob Lotterstein (“The War at Home,” “Ellen”) and Eileen Conn (“Mad About You,” “Just Shoot Me!”), “Shake It Up” stars Zendaya and Bella Thorne as Rocky Blue and CeCe Jones , Davis Cleveland as Flynn Jones , Roshon Fegan as Ty Blue , Adam Irigoyen as Deuce Martinez and Caroline Sunshine as Tinka Hessenheffer.  Recurring are Anita Barone as Georgia Jones and Ainsley Bailey as Dina Garcia .
