Wondering when "iCarly" star
Cosgrove will give fans a taste of what they can expect from her forthcoming debut album when she releases her five-song EP, About You Now, on February 3 on iTunes. The EP will include remixes of her songs "About You Now" and "Stay My Baby," and will also include two new songs: "FYI" and "Party Girl."
"Well, I worked in the beginning with [producers] the Matrix," she told MTV News about the new music. "We wrote some fun pop songs. I've been working with [Britney Spears/ Kelly Clarkson vet] Dr. Luke."
She added that being involved with the creative process has made making the album fun. "It's definitely different getting to be a part of the writing process. Most of the songs are fun, pop, rock-girl empowerment. There's one ballad that's kind of sad."
She talked a bit about that sad ballad. "It's called 'What Are You Waiting For?' It's about a girl who likes a guy [but he doesn't feel the same way]." She added it's something she's experienced in her own life. "I definitely have guys that I'm friends with that I have a crush on, and you don't want to ruin the friendship."
