Dance Moms Star Mackenzie Ziegler’s Album Tops iTunes!
When little Mackenzie Ziegler announced she was pursuing a music career, we have to admit we didn’t pay it much mind. The youngest member of the Abby Lee Miller Dance Company, Mackenzie is certainly talented and adorable, but it’s par for the course that a reality star would try their hand at becoming a pop star. However, it appears the Dance Moms star may actually have a shot at hitting the big time!
Under the name “Mack Z,” the 9-year-old released her self-titled debut album over the weekend, and it shot to the top of the iTunes charts! Not only did the album nab the No. 1 position on the pop chart, it also hit No. 7 on the overall album charts. Not only is she killing it domestically, she’s also a hit on the Canada, Mexico, and Australia iTunes charts. Not a small feat for the tiny gal!
And things are only going up from here. Tonight’s April 29 “kids only” special episode of Dance Moms will see the premiere of the official music video for her single, “It’s a Girl Party,” directed by industry bigwig Andrew Logan. The producer/director/songwriter is the man behind Jessie J’s music video for “Crazy Bout U” from Silver Linings Playbook and TV One’s hit series Verses and Flow. Good thing Mack’s got him on her team!
Another fascinating tidbit: Andrew is joined as executive producer on Mackenzie’s album by none other than Abby Lee Miller herself! This lady knows when to get in on the ground floor!
Head over to iTunes to purchase the entire Mack Z album and watch Dance Moms tonight at 9 p.m. ET on Lifetime to see her music video debut!
