Olivia Rodrigo Reveals Her Favorite Holiday Song & It May Surprise You

Olivia Rodrigo dished on her favorite holiday song!

The 17-year-old HSMTMTS star revealed which song she absolutely loves in an Instagram story on the Freeform account.

“I think mine is ‘Mistletoe’ by Justin Bieber. Absolute classic. I remember the year that song came out, me and my friends would just blast it. I was so obsessed with Justin Bieber when I was that age. So, [it] has a special place in my heart.”

“Mistletoe” came out in October 2011, which would have made Olivia eight years old!

She also asked a few of her co-stars holiday-related questions, and asked the same favorite holiday song question of her co-star Joshua Bassett.

“My favorite holiday song currently is ‘Santa’s Coming For Us’ by Sia. Check it out,” he said.

Joshua Bassett Talks 'The Perfect Gift,' Announces New Single Release Date

Joshua Bassett is opening up about his new original song “The Perfect Gift,” which is featured in the High School Musical: The Musical: The Holiday Special.

The song will also be part of the show’s upcoming second season.

Tim Federle approached me in January of this year, when they were writing this next season, and he said, ‘You know, we got this song that Ricky sings and I would love if you personally wrote it yourself,’” Joshua said on GMA3. “So he kind of gave me the context of it, about how Ricky can’t really afford a gift and so he comes up with the song.”

“My favorite lyric is in the end of the chorus that’s, ‘This song’s the second best that I could do, and the perfect gift is you,’” he adds. “So it’s that kind of concept of that other person being the true gift versus any material things.”

Joshua also talked about his upcoming EP, and revealed the release date of the first single!

“My EP is coming out early 2021, but my single off of that is coming out January 14th, which is the first time I’m announcing that. So, very exciting, but yeah, January 14th people can expect a single, and then shortly thereafter my EP is coming,” he said.

Joshua Bassett Teases Upcoming EP With New Video!

Joshua Bassett is getting fans excited for his debut EP!

The 19-year-old singer and HSMTMTS actor shared a cute little video on Instagram from his time in Joshua Tree, Calif., where he worked on some of the music.

“I come to Joshua Tree whenever I can. I wrote and worked on some of the songs for my EP out here. It’s absolutely beautiful and peaceful, and there’s no noise, no one can hear you. It’s kind of nice to be in your own little bubble,” Joshua says in the video.

“There’s such an incredible energy and that’s so important, I think, to be in the right headspace when you’re making music, and to just dump out creativity,” he added. Check out the video below to see what else he said!
