Disney Channel star, recording artist, and resident daughter-of-Maleficent (at least, on the network’s smash original movie Descendants) Dove Cameron will release a new music video cover of Christina Aguilera’s hit 1999 song “Genie in a Bottle,” set to premiere on Friday during a new episode of Stuck in the Middle.
The choice to cover the seminal Xtina classic is inspired by the “Genic Chic” storyline of the spin-off short-form series Descendants: Wicked World, which found the kids of Auradon transported inside the magic lamp of Jordan (Iman Karran), daughter of the Genie. In the video, Cameron’s character Mal is stuck in Jordan’s lamp after wishing she had her powers.

Reimagined for the tween crowd, the “Genie” video is executive-produced by Missy Galanida and Isaac Rice, who respectively ushered Britney Spears and Iggy Azalea’s “Pretty Girls” and Justin Bieber’s “Boyfriend” into the world. Jay Martin directs, with choreography by Willdabeast Adams and Janelle Ginestra. The new version of the song was produced by TRiON.
And of course, a dance tutorial with the Liv and Maddie star will air on Disney Channel immediately following the premiere, with more behind-the-scenes access airing on Sunday.
