Radio Disney Teen Queen Samantha LaPorta Heats Up Summer with “Wave”

Hey!! So excited to be talking with you again. Can you tell us what you’ve been up to over the past few months?

Thanks it’s great to be back, this past month i have been focused on songwriting and experimenting with my art.

That’s so cool!! You have definitely started making a name for yourself in the music industry and I can’t wait to see all that you have in store. Like your new summer anthem “Wave” was just released and it’s already gained a lot of attention from your supporters what’s been your reaction to all the success the song has been having?

Everyone has given me such great feedback telling me that it is their new “summer anthem” I saw that it was added to a bunch of playlists, like 200 of them and the Radio Disney Playlist, on Spotify.

Can you tell us how “Wave” came about?

I really wanted a fun upbeat summer jam that captures the type of summer’s you see in the movies. Wave is pure fun!

Any fun moments while creating the song?

I love the two guys I cowrite with, we have a lot of fun in the studio. when we were breaking for lunch, one of the guys said joking “not sure what i can buy with the change in my pocket” Boom! first line of the song we never did get to lunch

What’s your process of choosing a song to record?

I really love to have that emotional connection with a song so it feels true. and sometimes that emotion is lost by the time you get to the recording process. Lately I’ve been starting in the studio Day 1, picking Beats or a groove and just spitball ideas with the guys. By the end of the day we record the basic song to get the feel or vibe we want. Then day 2 really fine tune it until we are happy , add the layers of ad libs/harmonies . it goes to production and then a few weeks later when i hear it again and it still feels right, we know it’s the one.

Are you making a music video for “Wave”?

I did a really cool lyric video that fits the perfect summer vibe!

Will there be an EP/Album out soon?

Yes!! that is a big goal of mine and I already have ideas for songs to go on a ep/album.

Are there any other fun projects in the works you can tell us about?

a few projects, I’m in rehearsal for my live shows and I’m going to Nashville and NYC this summer to work on some songs, I’m very exciting!!

Do you have any last things you want to tell your supporters?
