Olivia Holt brings some magic wherever she goes in her new music video for her single “Phoenix!”
In the super cute video, the 18-year-old singer and actress has a blast traveling around LA with her BFFs, making stops at record stores and rooftop parties and capturing people’s inner-Phoenix!
“We’re capturing certain people’s phoenixes. So if they’re going through a hard time or if they’re struggling with something, then they find that one thing that makes them forget the struggles and step out of the shadows and face the sun. That’s their inner-Phoenix, so we made sure we captured moments like that in this video,” Olivia said about the video last month.

According to Variety, Ross stars “as a teenager who, after being uprooted by his parents’ separation and unable to fit into his new hometown, stumbles upon a magical app that causes his social media updates to come true. As he becomes a hero at his new high school, his newfound power abruptly unravels, sending him crashing back down to earth.”
The 18-year-old “Phoenix” singer recently appeared on Radio Disney’s The Alli Simpson Show and revealed her advice for anyone who wants to go into music, or acting.
“First and foremost, know that you’re having fun,” she shared. “That is the best advice that I have been given and it seems so simple, but if you really take it to heart. I try not to look at what I do as work or a job, I try and look it as the most fun I’m ever having because I am so passionate about it.”
Olivia added, “Have fun and know that you’re passionate about it because it’s not easy work, definitely really challenging. Best of luck. Stay who you are and surround yourself with good people and enjoy it.”
The 18-year-old “Phoenix” singer opened up about her musical influences and her celebrity crushes.
“There’s a handful of people. Ellie Goulding would probably be my number one. I actually saw her perform live recently and that just blew me away. All in all, her performance and her voice which is so unique and I am obsessed with it. She is a huge influence and inspires me on a day-to-day,” Olivia shared.
She added, “There is this UK artist named Jess Glynne who I am absolutely obsessed with as well. She is so rad and I hope I can meet her. Also, Adele. I think she has this class about her that is so endearing. I just feel really drawn to that.”
Olivia also teased about her celebrity crush, “It’s the same, it’s always the same.”
To find out who her celeb crush is, tune in to The Alli Simpson Show on Radio Disney TONIGHT, @7PM PT/10PM ET on Sirius/XM, TuneIn Radio, Aha Radio, and the Radio Disney app, among other platforms.
Olivia Holt has a quick touch up in between takes while shooting her “Phoenix” music video in Los Angeles earlier this month.
The 18-year-old actress/singer used Neutrogena’s MoistureSmooth Color Stick to perfect her pout while shooting the vid for her debut single.
“There were a couple of things I really wanted to make sure I captured and that was a bit of me, a bit of what people don’t see on a daily basis — what I like to do, who I like hang with, the things I like to see,” Olivia shared about making it.
She added, “In the video, we’re capturing certain people’s phoenixes. So. if they’re going through a hard time or if they’re struggling with something, then they find that one thing that makes them forget the struggles and step out of the shadows and face the sun. That’s their inner-Phoenix, so we made sure we captured moments like that in this video. There’s a lot of cool artwork within the video as well, so the visual will be really cool and I’m hoping everyone really enjoys it.”
