Who runs the world? Girls!
Singer and Nickelodeon star JoJo Siwa is gearing up to release a new single called “Every Girl’s a Super Girl” and it’s all about empowering young women. The former Dance Moms star recently caught up with PEOPLE to share an exclusive first listen, and reveal the important message behind her new song, while also sharing what former coach Abby Lee Miller told her following her recent prison release.
“I’m very proud of ‘Every Girl’s a Super Girl,’” Siwa, 14, tells PEOPLE of the tune. “I want all girls to know that no matter what size, color, or shape, whatever they are, that every girl is a super girl! They should be brave, confident and have fun and enjoy ever day!”
On April 11, the new single (hear a preview above) will exclusively be available on Star Stable, an online multi-player game built for tween and teen girls. Players will also get the chance to learn a choreographed dance from a customized Siwa avatar available for a limited time in the game.
Despite her young age, Siwa has found inspiration in the #MeToo movement and the push to empower women of all ages.
“I love that this moment has happened, and women and girls are being empowered,” Siwa says. “I feel everyone should feel empowered to live their best life.”

She says one person who’s doing just that these days is her former coach Abby Lee Miller who was recently released from prison after serving eight months for bankruptcy fraud.
“I have spoken to her. We actually FaceTimed the other day. She was super nice, we talked about Easter and going to see The Greatest Showman!” Siwa says.
Miller had a reputation for being ruthlessly demanding with her Dance Moms students on the show, but Siwa only has kind things to say about her former coach.
“I have a lot of respect for Abby and she taught me a lot of things, not only about dance but simple things like manners in a restaurant,” Siwa adds.
Siwa’s new single will be available on Star Stable April 11.
