Called the “perfect summer tune” by MTV Buzzworthy’s Byron Flitsch, “Gold” combines flirtatious, confident lyrics with an upbeat, carefree vibe. Justice told JustJaredJr.com that the song is about a girl 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,” she said.

In the sassy refrain, Justice challenges her guy: “Hey, boy, watcha gonna do. If you want me like I want you. Then man up and make your move. I'm Gold, Gold."

The 20-year-old Justice starred on the hit Nickelodeon series Victorious for three years. With this new single, she follows the lead of fellow Nickelodeon alumnae Ariana Grande and Miranda Cosgrove, who have launched successful musical careers after establishing huge fan bases on teen sitcoms.

Enjoy the video at the end of this post. The lyrics are below if you'd like to sing along.

“Gold”
Written by Tove Nilsson, Peter Thomas, Jason Weiss, Sam Shrieve, Ben Camp, Jakob Jerlström & Ludvig Söderberg. Performed by Victoria Justice.

I’ve tried to let it go
But these butterflies I can’t ignore
'Cause every time that I look at you
Know we’re in a catch-22
We’ve been friends for so long but I
Need to tell you what’s on my mind
I’m sick and tired of playing games
'Cause I know that you feel the same

I know you inside out, so I’m asking now
Take a chance on me
How much clearer can I be?

Hey, boy, watcha gonna do
If you want me like I want you, then man up and make your move
I’m Gold, Gold
You, me, good as can be, want to be more than your company
So bet your money on me
I’m Gold, Gold

Do I really need to spell it out?
My heart skips when you're around
I got everything that you need
So come on baby get close to me
So confused that I'm not surprised
From greater bells, and rolled the dice
Know all your moves, don't know why I fall
Should put me out, but I want it all

I know you inside out, so I’m asking now
Take a chance on me
How much clearer can I be?

Hey, boy, watcha gonna do
If you want me like I want you, then man up and make your move
I’m Gold, Gold
You, me, good as can be, want to be more than your company
So bet your money on me
I’m Gold, Gold

Na ra ta la la
I’m Gold, Gold
Na ra ta la la
I’m Gold, Gold

Been to cool just to tell you straight out, but by now I wish you figured it out, I wish you figured it, I wish you figured it, I wish ya
You’re not a fool you see what I’m about, so by now I think you figured it out, I think you figured it out, I think you figured it out, I think ya!

Hey, boy, watcha gonna do
If you want me like I want you, then man up and make your move
I’m Gold, Gold
You, me, good as can be, want to be more than your company
So bet your money on me
I’m Gold, Gold

Na ra ta la la
I’m Gold, Gold
Na ra ta la la
I’m Gold, Gold
