Cow Belles allowed Aly and A.J. to create a music video for On the Ride, Read it and Weep had a music video for it's original song, On the Outside Looking In and High School Muscial and Cheetah Girls 2 played musical scenes from the movies. Return to Holloweentown had a song by Jesse McCartney called Right Where You Want Me.
