Hollywood is now trying to transition teen sister act Aly & AJ into Top 40 artists. Aly starred in former Disney Channel series “Phil of the Future” and both appeared in the Disney Channel's 2006 movie “Cow Belles.” The pair's second album, “Insomniatic,” came in at No. 15 this week on Billboard's Top 200 album chart.
But instead of turning to the Disney Channel as it has in the past, Hollywood Records and the siblings are plugging the project on MTV's “TRL,” as well as appearing in MTV's cable movie “Super Sweet 16: The Movie.” A number of the album's tracks, including the first single, “Potential Breakup Song,” appear in the film.
Coming through the Hollywood pipeline in August will be the label debut from the Jonas Bros., a trio of teen brothers who have already garnered a tremendous audience through the Radio Disney and Disney Channel faithful. They have also filmed a Disney Channel pilot.
