The soundtrack from the highly-anticipated Disney Channel Original Movie “Descendants 2,” featuring Dove Cameron, Sofia Carson, Cameron Boyce and Booboo Stewart, is available today from Walt Disney Records. An unprecedented and simultaneous premiere is set for the Disney Channel Original Movie “Descendants 2” across five networks within the Disney|ABC Television Group, today Friday 21 (8:00 p.m. EDT), on Disney Channel, ABC, Disney XD, Freeform and Lifetime.
The high energy pop rock anthem, “Ways to Be Wicked” is performed by Cameron, Carson, Boyce and Stewart. The song is produced by Sam Hollander and Josh Edmondson who wrote the song with Grant Michaels and Charity Daw.
The commanding, feet stomping single “What’s My Name,” is performed by China Anne McClain as Uma (daughter of Ursula from “The Little Mermaid”), who is Mal’s archenemy and leader of a motley crew of pirates. The pop/R&B song establishes Uma as the self-proclaimed queen of the Isle of the Lost. The track is produced by the songwriting/producing team Rock Mafia, Antonina Armato and Tim James, who wrote the lyrics with Tom Sturges and Adam Schmalhol.
The “Descendants 2” soundtrack features six original songs, two covers of “Kiss the Girl” and “Poor Unfortunate Souls” from Disney’s animated classic “The Little Mermaid,” and three original songs from the animated short-form series “Descendants: Wicked World” including “Better Together,” “Evil” and “Rather Be With You.”
