Known for her effervescence, Madison Beer is a pop singer and actress from Long Island, New York.
A music lover and experimenter from an early age, Beer started posting YouTube videos of herself singing covers of various well-known songs as a 13-year-old in 2012. That summer, pop idol Justin Bieber came across her version of Etta James’ “At Last” and shared it with his 25-million-plus Twitter followers. The resulting media coverage led her to a record deal with Island Records and a management deal with Bieber’s manager the following year. Around that time, Beer was also cast in a small role in the independent film Louder Than Words, which starred David Duchovny and made its film festival premiere late in 2013. Her debut single, the poppy, melismatic “Melodies,” also appeared late that year, and was followed by “Unbreakable” in 2014.
Beer’s vocals have appeared on other artists’ songs, including Cody Simpson’s “Valentine” and the 2015 club track “I Won’t Let You Walk Away” by Mako. She delivered the moody breakup single “Dead” in May 2017, followed in November by “Say It to My Face.” Both songs were later included on her debut EP, 2018′s As She Pleases, which also spawned the single “Home.” The release cracked the Top 90 of the Billboard 200. That same year, Beer issued the non-album single “Hurts Like Hell” featuring Offset. Another single, “Dear Society,” arrived in May 2019, with “Selfish,” “Baby,” and “Boyshit” arriving throughout 2020 in advance of her of debut full-length, Life Support. The full album arrived in March 2021. ~ Marcy Donelson
