What's the story?
In their second season, Zendaya and Bella Thorne have shown the ups and downs in the lives of Rocky and CeCe, BFFs and dance stars. Now stretching their wings as semi-solo artists, each girl released a single simultaneously. Zendaya's track is the stronger one, the inspirational single "SOMETHING TO DANCE FOR." The song is featured on Shake it Up: Live 2 Dance.
Is it any good?
We know that CeCe and Rocky work as a pair, and now they're showing they can stand, or sing, on their own, too. In her synth-lite, catchy club beat "Something to Dance For," Zendaya sings about realizing your gifts and talents and not being afraid to go for it: "When it's a gift worth taking a chance for / then this is something you dance for." Although nothing groundbreaking, the song is uplifting and sweet and sure to be a hit for fans of the dancing duo.
