Destination Jam: Here are top five songs by Victoria Justice to get your fix before her imminent comeback
'Make It In America' 'Victorious' theme song, and more on today's Destination Jam featuring some of the most memorable Victoria Justice songs
If you're a Victoria Justice fan and awaiting new music, you're not alone. Likely one of the biggest highlights of 2020 is that the singer has recently announced that she is making a return to the craft of music-making with a new single, due out on Friday (December 11). To get into the Victoria Justice fever before its release, we want to treat you to a playlist of some of her best tracks. Check out our Destination Jam featuring the top five Victoria Justice songs below.
This hot Victoria Justice track enters first on our list as the song that would see her stepping into a solo music career. 'Gold' debuted in 2013 and was described by the singer as "more mainstream pop". An artiste who has often used her platform to empower women, Justice said to Artist Direct of the song's sassy, flirtatious lyrics: "I love it because I'm singing from a stance of female empowerment. It's not like I'm saying, 'I'm gold you should love me because I'm amazing and awesome' [Laughs]. It's more like, 'I feel empowered about myself. I feel good as a woman. I have self-respect. You should go for me!'"
'Freak The Freak Out'
Released as the lead single on November 19, 2010, for the soundtrack to the Nickelodeon television series, 'Victorious', this song is an up-tempo electronic rock bop with influences of electropop and teen pop lyrics. Although the lyrics have been regarded as empathetic with teen emotions, 'Freak The Freak Out' is like one of those guilty pleasures you can't get out of your head and eventually give in to sing along to its catchiness. Watch the official music video below.
'Make It Shine' ('Victorious' theme song)
A throwback to Victoria Justice's music wouldn't be complete without 'Make It Shine'. The infectiously memorable theme song for the popular Nickelodeon TV series 'Victorious', this track debuted on the OST 'Victorious: Music from the Hit TV Show'. The series would see Victoria Justice skyrocketing to fame and also featured Ariana Grande during the early stages of her career.
Move on to the balladic feature on our playlist, 'Girl Up' carries a similar sonic charm to a Vanessa Carlton number but turns into inspiration as Justice sings lyrics like, "Looking out of a dirty window. Its not much, but its all Ive known. Close my eyes and I see a rainbow. But I cant reach the pot of gold. All the things that we take for granted. All the things we dont really need. Those are the things theyve always wanted." The song was performed as a fundraising effort that was launched to help poor young children go to school. After the fundraising goal was reached, the song was made available for download at www.girlup.org.
'Make It In America'
We wrap up our Justice Playlist with the dreamy 'Make It In America'. The song opens with a sense of escapism and kicks into a hard pop beat. For 'Victorious' fans, the official music video features Victoria and the cast singing the song in a car in the desert and in the end, at an exuberant outdoor party.
