Zendaya to Release Chris Brown Collaboration, ‘Something New’
This week is proving to be full of unexpected collaborations for Zendaya. On Monday (January 25), the former Disney star released the official music video for her cover of “Neverland,” which appears on the soundtrack for the Broadway musical Finding Neverland. The video features an unexpected co-star, namely Breaking Bad‘s Bryan Cranston, who plays the role of a magical and dapper gentleman that helps Zendaya achieve her dreams.
Yesterday (January 26), Zendaya caused yet another stir on social media with the announcement of her upcoming single: the track will be called “Something New,” and will feature vocals from Chris Brown.

Zendaya’s record company Republic Records posted the official announcement of “Something New” to their playbook website. The single will go live for download and streaming on Friday, February 5, and will then be released to Top 40 radio on Tuesday, February 9.
The announcement also highlighted news of Zendaya’s recent work with CoverGirl, noting that she will be the newest “easy, breezy, and beautiful” addition to the cosmetics company’s roster of spokespeople. Zendaya made this news public last Thursday (January 21) via Instagram:
The official “Something New” announcement ends with the exciting reminder that the first TV spot for Zendaya’s CoverGirl campaign will air during the 2016 Grammys and will feature snippets of her new single.
