Sigh, we knew this was bound to happen one day. Bella Thorne is singing about boys. The part-Cuban teenage star of Disney’s hit sitcom Shake It Up! has teamed up with one of her best friends, Pia Mia Perez, on “Bubblegum Boy”—a fun, upbeat song that has us bobbing our heads in the office. Yeah, we said it, this song doesn't only have appeal for the tween set (though the topic may be a little young). Produced by FaceTone Entertainment (Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds and Toni Dixon), the catchy ditty will be released on iTunes in the next few weeks.
It’s sweet to see both Thorne and Pia Mia working together and we were happy to get a behind the scenes look of the lovely Latinas together in the studio. In an interview with Latina.com earlier this year, Thorne described Pia Mia and her Shake It Up! co-star Zendaya Coleman as her best friends. “Pia is a fantastic singer and I’m really excited to hear her stuff,” she told us, so we're sure she is thrilled that they're making music togther. In the video, both chicas are obviously having a great time together, dancing and even playing hand-clapping games.
The new season of Shake It Up! premieres this upcoming Sunday, September 18. The series premiere made history when it drew 6.2 million viewers and became the highest rated series premiere Dinsey has ever had in its 27-year history.
