Like so many great Disney Channel personalities before her, Laura Marano is making the transition from actor to pop star. The former Austin & Ally starlet's new single "La La" makes a good case for pop success thanks to some great collaborators (Laura wrote the track with Justin Tranter, who's on a roll with recent songs like Justin Bieber's "Sorry" and Selena Gomez's "Hands to Myself") and the empowering-yet-carefree message.
Watch above as Marano describes her new single, which she declares is a "happy, fun, celebratory, screw-you song." The singer-actor adds that "La La" previews her upcoming album, which drops later this year and will include some hip-hop guest stars.
Marano will also serve on the judges panel for the upcoming Miss America pageant alongside Ciara and Olympic gold medalist Gabby Douglas. Don't miss what Laura had to say about all of her upcoming projects above; then stream "La La" below:
