Since her days on Disney Channel, Dove has amassed over 11 million listeners on Spotify. In a sense, she “graduated” from the kid-friendly, theatrical songs that she began her career with.

She went on to drop “Boyfriend,” a sultry and seductive track that provided insight into Dove’s unapologetic view on her sexuality. It has since become a popular LGBT+ track and has her most streams on a song yet at 481 million. Other notable tracks include “Breakfast,” the haunting and fervent feminist soundtrack that throws a middle-finger up to the patriarchy, and her collaboration with Khalid, “We Go Down Together.”
