Sofia Carson just dropped her retro-soul version of “Rotten to the Core” and we have the music video for you to watch over and over right here!
Fans got a sneak peek of the track when Sofia performed it for the first time live at the biennial D23 Expo held at the Anaheim Convention Center last weekend in Anaheim, CA. Fans and spectators were very pleased with Carson’s performance and enjoyed the track even more.

A rising star, Carson is a first generation Colombian-American, raised in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. She is fluent in three languages: Spanish, French and English. This past year she guest starred in Disney Channel’s hit comedy “Austin & Ally” and in MTV’s “Faking It.” In early 2016, Carson will star alongside Sabrina Carpenter (“Girl Meets World”) in the Disney Channel Original Movie, Adventures in Babysitting.
The music video, filmed in London, was directed by acclaimed British short film director Naren Wilks (“One Man, Eight Cameras”) and Adam Santelli (“Fear the Walking Dead”), using a 3D green screen cylinder — a technique Wilks invented himself — capturing a kaleidoscope-like effect onscreen. The video will serve as the opening for “Descendants Wicked World,” an animated short-form series set in the Auradon and Isle of the Lost Worlds premiering Friday, September 18 on Disney Channel and Disney online platforms.
In its second week, the “Descendants” soundtrack is #8 on Billboard 200 after entering the chart at #1 last week. It’s also #1 on the Billboard Soundtrack chart, #1 on the iTunes soundtrack chart and #4 on the iTunes album chart. The “Descendants” soundtrack debuted at #1 on the iTunes soundtrack chart in Mexico and #3 iTunes soundtrack chart in Brazil. “Rotten to the Core” also debuted as the #1 Soundtrack Song on iTunes in Mexico.
In Descendants, Evie (Sofia Carson) was last seen dancing the night away at the big coronation dance with Doug (Zachary Gibson) and BFF Mal (Dove Cameron), but since then, she’s wandered off… On Sunday, fans will finally find out what Evie’s been up to! The special is coming to Disney Channel on August 23rd after Best Friends Whenever.
