The Buzz On: Bridgit Mendler

Ready or not, Bridgit Mendler is primed to dominate the pop charts.

Bridgit Mendler is getting ready to take over — and don’t say we didn’t warn you. Star of the Disney Channel’s “Good Luck Charlie” and feature film “Lemonade Mouth,” the golden-haired singer-songwriter is also riding high on two pop-studded, hook-laden singles — “Forgot To Laugh” and “Ready Or Not” — and will soon release her upcoming debut, Hello My Name Is, via Hollywood Records. And girl is only 19! How’s that for a résumé? Now add dancing to the mix and you’ve got yourself an old-fashioned triple threat.

Listen to Bridgit Mendler after the jump.

Though she only has two singles out so far, Bridgit has proven her versatility as a singer — while the video for “Ready Or Not” showcases Bridgit as a fun-loving, California girl, “Forgot To Laugh” displays wisdom beyond her years. Produced by Emanuel “Eman” Kiriakou and Evan “Kidd” Bogart, “Forgot To Laugh” is at once sunny and wise, and seems to revel in the friendly sass and punch of Cher Lloyd and the fast-talking know-how of Lily Allen. Bridgit’s ease and comfort with herself shine through: “If you drive away/ Hope you get a flat tire, get stranded/ If it’s goodbye today/ Know you’re leaving here empty-handed/ ‘Cause I got my own life/ And you’re just a punch line/ If you go, you’re a joke/ I forgot to laugh.” Yeah, girl power! Ready or not, here she comes. And we’ll be waiting!
