Welcome back to Takeover Tuesday, where each week Billboard taps chart-topping artists and tastemakers to compile their very own playlist exclusive to Billboard's Spotify account. We give the artists free rein to base the list on whatever subject they choose. The only rule? Make it as creative and unique to them as possible.

This week, Olivia Holt teaches us about self-affirmation through her catchy playlist. Her song selection veers between the most alternative and mainstream extremes of pop, creating a collage of influences that are present in her own music. The Kickin’ It star even included Disney Channel predecessor Demi Lovato in the track list.

“We listen to music to feel,” Holt told Billboard. “And lately I've been feeling a number of things. Bold, and sexy, resilient, and confident. My new song ‘Generous’ is a combination of all of those feelings. As is this playlist.”

Her latest single, “Generous,” is a pop song propelled by a funky bass line. The up-and-comer’s self-titled EP peaked at No. 19 on Heatseekers Albums last year.
