Hollywood Records artist Bridgit Mendler, star of Disney Channel’s “Good Luck Charlie” will premiere “Ready Or Not,” the first single and video from her debut album Hello My Name Is…,” on Radio Disney on August 3. The song, co-written by Bridgit, Emanuel “Eman” Kiriakou and Evan “Kidd” Bogart (and produced by “Eman”) will be available for sale August 7 and impacts at Top 40 Radio on August 20.
“Ready Or Not,” an infectious up-tempo pop track with a strong undercurrent of soul, tells the tale of discovering someone new one special night, but it also sums up Bridgit’s approach to life. “I have been writing songs since I was six years old and I’m thrilled to finally share my songs with the world. I wanted to write something that was empowering for girls,” she says. “I consider myself to have been that girl sitting on the curb waiting for the world to notice.”
“Ready Or Not” features an interpolation of The Delfonics hit song “Ready Or Not Here I Come (Can’t Hide From Love).”
The video for “Ready Or Not” was directed by Philip Andelman (Beyonce, John Mayer, Jay-Z, Taylor Swift) and filmed at multiple locations in Los Angeles. Combining a performance element by Bridgit and a city-wide scavenger hunt with friends, the video is set to premiere worldwide August 10.
