First Look: RIVERDALE’s Josie & the Pussycats debut “All For Me” with Archie’s help

On tomorrow night’s all new episode of RIVERDALE (9/8c on The CW) (my favorites) Josie and the Pussycats debut a new song — the result of a partial collaboration with Archie Andrews.  Have a first look at the new video for the song, “All For Me.”

Once again, Ashleigh Murray’s voice leads the way, with Asha Bromfield and Hayley Law performing as the band at the Taste of Riverdale event. Spoilers: as the band performs, Archie (series star KJ Apa) finds a way to sneak into the event after being grounded by his father, Fred (series star Luke Perry), earlier.

Earlier in the episode, Archie visits one of the Pussycats’ rehearsals and helps the band finish a lyric for the song. The unexpected creative outlet sparks new hope for Archie, whose interest in music was put to the test after resistance from his father, a complicated relationship with his music teacher, and skepticism from Josie herself.

Perhaps speaking based on Josie’s own comment about only singing originals, after seeing them sing 2 covers so far, executive producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa said: “So far in the series, we’ve seen the Pussycats perform two covers, but in this episode, we see them doing an original song, ‘All For Me,’ at an event Josie’s mom, Mayor McCoy, is hosting for Riverdale. A bit less pop than what we might normally associate with the Pussycats, but a really great showcase for their voices and talents — with more original songs to come.”
