The K.C. Undercover actress is hoping to change all that with her upcoming sophomore album, which will follow the blueprint of all teen idol music by being more mature than its predecessor to appeal to a wider audience.
"I want to make R&B with a touch of pop, rather than pop with a touch of R&B," she revealed in the latest issue of Teen Vogue. "It'll be a little more urban, something my fellow 18-year-olds are going to want to bump to in their cars rather than feel like they have to turn it down as soon as someone else gets in. I want them to be able to be like, 'Yo, I'm listening to Zendaya!'"
She also promises that it'll be promoted better than her self-titled debut was, which is another indication that Hollywood Records is serious about making Zendaya a huge pop star this time around.
"I'm so excited to be in a place where I can do my best work and where what I create will be promoted properly," she said of her new music. "My first record was a baby step in the right direction, but now it's time to go full force."
If the new album contains anything half as good as Replay, then we're all in.
