Victoria Justice told Billboard her upcoming Summer Break Tour with fellow Nickelodeon stars Big Time Rush will be ‘one final hurrah for all the ‘Victorious’ fans,’ and a transition point into a music career under her own name. ‘It definitely falls under the category of pop, but it’s my own vibe. When you hear these songs.. the people that know me are like, ‘This is so Vic!’ It’s 100 percent my personality, messages I want to get across.
Some of the songs are really fun, upbeat stuff you can dance to, and then I have some songs that are a little more introspective, a little more mellow. It’s just all me, basically, so it’s very cool.’ She has been working with producers and co-writers such as Greg Wells and the Messengers on the album. She and Nick/ Columbia are currently deciding if she’ll release a new single during the course of the tour and working on a timetable for the album, which she hopes to release this year:
‘I’m very excited for everyone to hear my own sound and who I am as an artist. I’ve been cultivating it for a while now, and I think it’s definitely come time for me to reintroduce myself to people. I feel like now that the show’s over, I’ve been talking about this solo album for a while now, so I really want to put something out so people can hear my new stuff.
It’s great now that I have more free time. It was hard before because I did a movie and my TV show was going, so I couldn’t really juggle all of it. But now that I do have more time, I definitely will be focusing on (music) more. Big Time Rush are super down-to-earth, fun guys to hang out with, and we laugh a lot when we hang out together. So I think it’s going to be a great combination, and I think we’ll probably do a song together, probably a cover or something. I think would be really fun for the audience to see as well.”‘
