Disney Channel. Are you excited?!
a few more days until the
only is the flick loaded with awesome stars (Coco Jones, Tyler James Williams,
Trevor Jackson, anyone?) it’s got tons of great music, too.
packed with soulful ballads, funky jams and hip hop beats (much different than
the songs you’ve heard on past musical Disney Channel hits like Camp Rock and High School Musical), the 13-track Let It Shine soundtrack, which hit stores today, has everything you
need to kick start a super chill summer.
caught up with the cast on the flick’s jumping Atlanta set, and they let us in
on their favorite Let It Shine songs.
Which is your fave?
who plays shy Cyrus in the movie, told us this one is his favorite track—a
ballad in which he raps and Coco Jones sings. “It comes from a place when Cyrus
is very frustrated with what is happening with his life,” Tyler tells us. “He
just pours his soul out and talks about things that emotionally affect him.
It’s so real.”
co-star Trevor Jackson (who plays
best bud Kris) prefers this title song, sung by Tyler and Coco. “It’s so
beautiful and the lyrics mean a lot,” the cutie tells us of the classic
we talked with Coco Jones (Let It Shine’s pop star Roxie), she had
a more difficult time picking out a favorite track! “I honestly love every
song. They’re all so different and they all have so many different varities,”
she says. “I love the church songs because I grew up in church, the rap songs
because I love to rap…I just love them all.”
Coco track we love the most (and still can’t get out of our head!)? “What I
Said.” We caught her performing this upbeat R&B track when we hung out on
the Let It Shine set and wait until
you see her moves (and costume!) in this special club scene.
the majority of the songs on the Let It
Shine soundtrack feature Tyler or Coco, expect to hear tracks from other
members of the cast, including Brandon Mychal Smith (who you may know from
Disney Channel’s So Random!). The CD
also has cool bonus content, including a free downloadable “rap battle beat
pack,” complete with four instrumental tracks for you to rap over!

Williams’ “Guardian Angel” below…

with your favorite stars during the big premiere.
