They are back and badder than ever before in Descendants 2! If your tweens and teens are anything like mine they would already have the DVR set for the premiere if our DVR would let us set that far in advance. You may as well get a first look at the first single from the movie’s soundtrack. You may be hearing it a lot this summer!
The single “Ways to Be Wicked” and the full “Descendants 2” soundtrack is available from Walt Disney Records wherever digital music is sold and streamed on FRIDAY, APRIL 14
“Ways to Be Wicked” is performed by Cameron, Carson, Boyce and Stewart who will take over Radio Disney for the “planet premiere” of the high-energy pop rock anthem from the upcoming movie sequel. The song is produced by Sam Hollander and Josh Edmondson who wrote the song with Grant Michaels and Charity Daw. A lyric video for the single will be available on DisneyMusicVEVO starting Friday, April 14.
The “Descendants 2” soundtrack will feature 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.” Fans who pre-order the soundtrack will be able to immediately download the “Ways to Be Wicked” single and the three upbeat pop songs from “Descendants: Wicked World.”
