"Watch Me" is a song originally sung by Margaret Durante and is included on the Season 1 soundtrack, Shake It Up: Break It Down. It was later remixed by Bella Thorne and Zendaya, and a music video was released on Disney Channel the 17th of June, 2011 during the series premiere episode of A.N.T. Farm.

Background

"Watch Me" is the second single released from the soundtrack Shake It Up: Break It Down (2011), for the television series Shake It Up on Disney Channel. It was first heard on the series's first episode under the original Margaret Durante version which premiered on November 7, 2010 in North America, seven months before the single's actual release. The girls recorded the cover song in April of 2011, as multiple pictures were tweeted and news outlet's reported. The original song was heard in several other episodes of Shake It Up .

More information and reception

Margaret Durante's version was not planned to be a single, but before the music video of the cover by Bella Thorne and Zendaya came out, and it was released as the second single of the soundtrack and was successful.

There's very little difference between Margaret Durante's version and the Bella Thorne/Zendaya's version. The instrumentals are very similar, but more amped up and filtered in the background for Bella and Zendaya's version. Also, Margaret Durante's vocals can still be heard in the background of Bella and Zendaya's version.

The remix was criticized for the amount of auto-tune used in it, especially in regards to the auto-tune use on Bella's voice, although Zendaya also used it. Despite this, the remix did recieve positive reivews from critics, as well.

Music video

The music video was released on June 21, 2011 on Disney Channel, Radio Disney, and YouTube. It was also released on YouTube's related site VEVO.

Lyrics (by Margaret Durante)

Watch Me
I don't need no one to tell me
How to feel the beat
And I don't need no beat to tell me
How to move my feet

Just go and do what you do
'Cause there's nothing to prove
I'm just being me
W-watch me, do me

I don't need no magazine to tell me
Who to be
And I don't need to pose
For p-p-paparazzi

Just keep the cameras flashing
To try to catch this action
I'm just being me
W-watch me, do me (me, me, me!)

Light up the floor!
Play me one more
Let me hear that
Click clack on the high hat let the bass vibrate
Feel the room rock

Light up the floor!
Just like before
Let me hear that
Bass drop on the boombox, make your heart stop!
Feel the room rock

I'm doing all I wanna do
And I won't stop until I can't move
I'm just being me
Watch me, do me, me, me

Watch me, do me, me, me
Watch me, watch-

I don't need no music
When I wanna sing a song (w-watch me)
I don't need what's popular
To know what's right or wrong (w-watch me)

I'm busy burning the track
Not holding anything back!
I'm just being me
W-watch me, do me (me, me, me!)

Light up the floor!
Play me one more
Let me hear that
Click clack on the high hat let the bass vibrate
Feel the room rock

Light up the floor!
Just like before
Let me hear that
Bass drop on the boombox make your heart stop!
Feel the room rock

I'm doing all I wanna do
(All I wanna do...)
And I won't stop until I can't move
I'm just being me
Watch me, do me

I'm ready
I'm, I'm ready to go!
Let, let it
Let, let, let it explode!
I'm ready
I'm, I'm ready to go
To go, to go!

Light up the floor!
Play me one more, (play me one more)
Let me hear that
Click clack on the high hat let the bass vibrate
Feel the room rock

Light up the floor!
Just like before (j-j-j-just like before)
Let me hear that
Bass drop on the boombox make your heart stop!
Stop.

I'm doing all I wanna do, (all I wanna do...)
And I won't stop until I can't move
I'm just being me
Watch me, do me, me, me!

Watch me, do me, me, me!
Watch me, watch me!
