From the press release:
Victorious: Music From The Hit TV Show features 12 songs — and an additional iTunes exclusive bonus song– performed by Victoria and the series cast including the show’s buoyant theme song “Make It Shine” as well as the hit singles “Beggin’ On Your Knees,” “Freak the Freak Out” and “Best Friend’s Brother.” The combined sales of all four singles have accounted for sales of over 1.3 million units. Also on the CD are new songs “All I Want is Everything,” by the Victorious cast featuring Victoria Justice and produced by Grammy Award winner and Columbia artist Raphael Saadiq, and a special cover of the Jackson 5 classic, “I Want You Back.” Both songs will be featured in the upcoming Victorious hour-long movie Locked Up! premiering Saturday, July 30 at 8 p.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon.
As an additional treat for fans of the show, the soundtrack also includes music by Victorious stars Elizabeth Gillies, Ariana Grande and Leon Thomas. The Victorious experience is capped off with the propulsive “Leave It All To Shine,” a musical mashup — featuring Victoria and Miranda Cosgrove with the casts of Victorious and iCarly – showcased in the Nickelodeon TV event “iParty with Victorious” (premiered June 11), the number-one entertainment telecast of 2011 across all TV with kids 6-11 and tweens 9-14.
“I can’t wait for the Victorious soundtrack to be released,” said Victoria. “We have a few really cool songs on the soundtrack that haven’t been featured on the show yet. I hope the fans love it!”
“The Victorious album captures the spirit and energy of this great new show whilst providing an important showcase for the exciting talent of Victoria Justice,” said Rob Stringer, Chairman, Columbia/ Epic Label Group.
A special Walmart Soundcheck concert, featuring live performances from Victoria and her cast mates, was filmed on May 26 and will premiere August 6 at Walmart online and physical retail.
Victoria sang “Beggin’ On Your Knees,” at Nickelodeon’s 2011 Kids’ Choice Awards. The song was also featured in a brand-new episode of Victorious, airing immediately following the KCA broadcast, which set a new series ratings record with all key demos and ranked as the week’s number-two telecast with all kids and tweens on all TV (behind only Kids’ Choice Awards). The half-hour episode drew 6.1 million total viewers. Victoria’s video for the track premiered on Nickelodeon on Saturday, March 12.
Victoria performed the R.I.A.A. gold-certified (over 500k units sold) party anthem “Freak the Freak Out” at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade last November and a special hour-long self-titled episode of Victorious featuring the track became the first in the series to reach #1 on the overall iTunes charts. The show’s theme song, “Make It Shine,” is performed by Victoria and co-written by songwriter/producer Dr. Luke (Katy Perry, Britney Spears, Kelly Clarkson) and Michael Corcoran (Drake Bell, Miranda Cosgrove).
The success of Victorious has led to a number of accolades for the show and its teen star. Victoria is currently nominated for a 2011 Imagen Award for Best Young Actress/Television. Previously she garnered nominations for Favorite TV Actress at the 2011 KCAs and Outstanding Performance in a Youth/Children’s Program (Series or Special) at the 2011 NAACP Image Awards. At the 2010 Teen Choice Awards, Victorious was nominated in the Choice TV: Breakout Show category while Victoria was nominated for Choice Smile.
