Zendaya began her career as a child model and backup dancer. She rose to mainstream prominence for her role as Rocky Blue on the Disney Channel sitcom Shake It Up (2010–2013). In 2013, Zendaya was a contestant on the sixteenth season of the dance competition series Dancing with the Stars. She produced and starred as the titular spy, K.C. Cooper, in the sitcom K.C. Undercover (2015–2018). Her performance as a struggling, drug addict teenager in the HBO drama series, Euphoria (2019–present), made her the youngest recipient of the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series. Her film roles include the musical drama The Greatest Showman (2017), the superhero film Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) and its sequels, the romantic drama Malcolm & Marie (2021), the live-action/animation hybrid sports comedy, Space Jam: A New Legacy (2021), and the science fiction epic Dune (2021).

In addition to her acting career, Zendaya has ventured into music. In 2011, she released the singles "Swag It Out" and "Watch Me", the latter a collaboration with Bella Thorne. She signed with Hollywood Records in 2012 and subsequently released her debut single, "Replay", which reached the top 40 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart. She released her eponymous debut studio album in 2013 to moderate success and critical acclaim. Zendaya's biggest commercial success as a musician came with her Zac Efron collaboration, "Rewrite the Stars", from The Greatest Showman soundtrack in 2018. The single reached within the top 20 of several record charts and has received multi-platinum sales certifications globally.
