'Cruel Summer' Star Olivia Holt on What's 'Next'

Olivia Holt entered a new era of music this year with the release of her single, "Next," a playful bop that sees her flirting with a love interest. "I wanna dance with you after," she sings on the chorus. "Let me get with you next." The track was co-written by hitmaker Meghan Trainor , whose signature lyrical style and melodies are all over the song, from "Baby, shake your cake" to "I'm callin' dibs."

Twenty four-year-old Holt, who stars in Freeform's Cruel Summer as Kate Wallis, a popular teenage girl that gets abducted in her small suburban Texas town, will officially be returning to TV this month to sing live on Bachelor in Paradise . The ABC spot will mark her debut performance of "Next" on national television, following a recent rendition for VEVO .

Ahead of Holt's Bachelor in Paradise appearance on Tuesday, September 7 at 8 PM EST, PAPER caught up with the performer to talk about everything happening "Next."
