“If you want me like I want you/ Then man up and make your move/ I’m gold, gold,” croons Justice.

“Gold” is Justice’s official debut single, which premiered last month.

“I’m really excited to be releasing ‘Gold’, my first single,” Victoria said at that time. “It’s an upbeat song about a girl just trying to tell a guy, that she’d like to be more than just friends. I think it’s an empowering position for a girl to be taking because she’s putting it all out there. It’s a fun summer tune with a little sass.”

Justice will be performing the single on her tour with Big Time Rush this summer. The Summer Break Tour will have stops in more than 40 cities including New York, Chicago and Dallas.

Justice Releases Debut Single “Gold”

It’s a golden moment for Victoria Justice

Justice’s “Gold” follows in the pop-rock footsteps of Kelly Clarkson and P!nk, with the former Victorious star keeping things light with some PG-rated “we’re more than friends!” exclamations and tossed-off rapping in the bridge.

Justice gives her Nickelodeon fans an airy, accessible introduction to her first proper solo album.

“It definitely falls under the category of pop, but it’s my own vibe,” Justice told Billboard about the album earlier this month. “When you hear these songs…the people that know me are like, ‘This is so Vic!’ It’s 100 percent my personality, messages I want to get across. Some of the songs are really fun, upbeat stuff you can dance to, and then I have some songs that are a little more introspective, a little more mellow. It’s just all me, basically, so it’s very cool.”

Along with “Gold,” Justice has offered a non-single bonus track, “Shake,” to fans eager for new music.

Justice will perform the single and her older favorites when she kicks off her summer tour alongside Big Time Rush on June 21 in Los Angeles.
