Shake It Up premiered on November 7, 2010, and it was watched by 6.2 million viewers, becoming Disney Channel's second highest-rated premiere in Disney Channel's 27-year history. In 2011 Zendaya released "Swag It Out", a promotional independent single. The song was composed by Bobby Brackins and produced by Glenn A. Foster.

In February 2013, Zendaya was announced as one of the celebrities who would compete on season 16 of Dancing with the Stars.

She was partnered up with professional dancer Valentin Chmerkovskiy. In May, the couple finished as runners-up behind Kellie Pickler and Derek Hough. Her self-titled debut album was released on September 17, 2013. It was preceded by the hit single "Replay", released on July 16, 2013. The song was written by Tiffany Fred and Paul "Phamous" Shelton.

Undercover premiered on Disney Channel on January 18, 2015, and was renewed for a second season in May 2015.
In 2014, Zendaya was a guest judge on an episode of Project Runway: Under the Gunn. In the episode, the contestant designers were given the challenge of creating an outfit for Zendaya to wear in an upcoming concert performance.
In February 2015, after a joke made by Giuliana Rancic concerning Zendaya, in reference to her hair smelling of "patchouli oil" and "weed" at the 87th Academy Awards, Zendaya promptly took to Instagram to address the remark and point out that many successful people have "locs," a hairstyle that has nothing to do with drugs. Mattel honored Zendaya with her own Barbie, replicating her Oscars look.
The following month, musician Timbaland confirmed that he was working with Zendaya on her second album, following her switching record labels from Disney to Republic. "Something New", featuring Chris Brown was released on February 5 via Hollywood Records and Republic Records. The song also marks it as her first official release since signing to Republic Records. In August 2015, Zendaya debuted her shoe collection, Daya, which was her childhood nickname.
In 2016, Zendaya made her feature film debut as Michelle in Spider-Man: Homecoming, which was released in July 2017. The film grossed $117 million in its first weekend, ranking number one at the box office. John DeFore of The Hollywood Reporter praised her as a "scene stealer," while David Ehrlich of IndieWire called her the film's "MVP," despite her brief on-screen time.
On November 4, 2016, Zendaya's own clothing line, Daya by Zendaya, went on sale.
In December 2017, Zendaya co-starred in the musical film The Greatest Showman, alongside Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron, Michelle Williams, and Rebecca Ferguson. She portrayed a trapeze artist named Anne Wheeler who falls in love with Efron's character, Phillip Carlyle, during a time when interracial romance was taboo. Although the film received mixed reviews from critics, it was a commercial success and Zendaya's performance, as well as chemistry with Efron, was particularly praised. Critic Owen Gleiberman wrote in Variety that, "Efron and Zendaya have a terrific chemistry — they never stop seeking each other out."
Zendaya was ranked one of the best dressed women in 2018 by fashion website Net-a-Porter. That September Warner Bros. released the animated film Smallfoot, in which Zendaya voiced the yeti Meechee. The following month, Tommy Hilfiger signed Zendaya to be the brand's new global women's ambassador, which would have her appearing in the mainline campaigns, and designing a Tommy x Zendaya capsule collection.
In June 2019, Zendaya began starring in the HBO drama series Euphoria, an adaptation of the Israeli series of the same name. She plays Rue, a lying, drug-addicted 17-year-old girl and the series' narrator. She reprised her role of MJ in Spider-Man: Far from Home, released on July 2, 2019.
In January 2019, Zendaya was cast as Chani in the upcoming Denis Villeneuve adaptation of Dune alongside Timothée Chalamet in the leading role. The following month, she became a Lancôme spokesmodel.
In November 2017, Zendaya signed on to star in and produce A White Lie, as Anita Hemmings, a light-skinned, African-American woman who was the descendant of slaves and passed as white so she could attend Vassar during the 1890s. She will also appear alongside Ansel Elgort and Jake Gyllenhaal in the crime thriller Finest Kind.
In 2012 Zendaya became an ambassador for Convoy of Hope. She recorded John Legend's 2013 song "All of Me" with a portion of the proceeds going to the organization. She celebrated her 18th birthday with a campaign to help feed at least 150 hungry children in Haiti, Tanzania and the Philippines through feedONE, and in 2016 she celebrated her 20th birthday with a campaign to raise $50,000 to support Convoy's Women's Empowerment Initiative.
In September 2012 Zendaya was featured along with rapper Lil Wayne and NBA player LeBron James in a television commercial for Beats by Dr. Dre Color in which they performed the song "Scream and Shout" by Will.I.Am and Britney Spears.
