Shake It Up: Live 2 Dance is the second soundtrack for the Disney Channel Original SeriesShake It Up. It was released on March 20, 2012. The soundtrack is based on songs from the album featuring on the show's second season (2011-2012).
All of the songs were available for listening during the Radio Disney Planet Premiere held three days prior to the soundtrack's release and on RadioDisney.com, excluding The Deluxe Edition bonus tracks, and the Target exclusive tracks (with the exception of "The Star I R," which was played On-Air that day). It sold 210,000 copies in the US in 2012, and was the best-selling TV soundtrack of the year.
Heather Phares of Allmusic gave a review: "The soundtrack to the Disney Channel's show Shake It Up, about two girls who finally get a chance to live their dreams of being professional dancers, is as foot-tapping as its subtitle, Live 2 Dance, suggests. The dance-pop set features Bella Thorne's text-speak hit "TTYLXOX," Blush's driving "Up Up and Away," and Amber Lily's Ke$ha-esque "Turn It On," along with tracks by Zendaya, Coco Jones, Adam Hicks and Adam Trent."
