After teasing fans with snippets of new music on TikTok, actress, and singer, Dove Cameron finally shared her new track, Boyfriend on February 10. “You have no idea what it means to make something empowering and true to me and have it resonate with you. Gonna go cry now I love you,” she wrote in an Instagram post to fans. One day after its release the track had already garnered 24 million streams.
As a young child growing up in Washington, Cameron had dreams of working in the entertainment business. At 8-years-old, she took her first steps as an actress when she began performing at her local community theater. By the time she was 14, her parents went all in and relocated to Los Angeles to help their daughter pursue her dreams.
