Career

2012–2016: Career beginnings

 
Madison Beer in September 2014

Beer began posting videos on YouTube of her singing covers of popular songs in early 2012.[8] They gained the attention of Justin Bieber, who tweeted a link to her cover of Etta James' "At Last" to his followers. This caused Beer to trend worldwide on Twitter and gain substantial media coverage.[9] Bieber signed Beer personally to the record label to which he is signed, Island Records,[10] and at the time was managed by Bieber's manager Scooter Braun.[11]

Beer partnered with Monster High, and recorded a theme song for the franchise titled "We Are Monster High". In February 2013, Cody Simpson re-released his song "Valentine" with Beer which was played on Radio Disney,[12][13] but was never officially released. On September 12, 2013, Beer released her debut single and music video called "Melodies" which was written by Peter Kelleher, Ben Kohn, Thomas Barnes and Ina Wroldsen.[14] The video featured a guest appearance by Bieber.

Beer began work on her debut album which was slated to have pop and R&B influences, stating there "will be slow songs, sad songs, happy songs, songs about boys, and songs about being who you are. I'm making sure I'm happy with all of the songs, because if I am not happy with them, I can't expect anyone else to be, you know?"[15] The album is believed to have been scrapped.[16]

"Unbreakable" was the second single released by Beer.[17] The song was released on June 17, 2014 and was written by Jessica Ashley, Evan Bogart, Heather Jeanette Miley, Matt Schwartz, Emanuel Kiriakou and Andrew Goldstein and was produced by the latter two.[18] On February 16, 2015, it was announced that Beer was set to be a featured artist in a new single by DJs Mako titled "I Won't Let You Walk Away".[19] The song was released for digital download on February 24, 2015 along with a music video.[20][21] The song reached number 43 on the Hot Dance/Electronic Songs, number 33 on the Dance/Electronic Digital Songs, and number 19 on the Dance/Mix Show Airplay charts in the United States.[22] On September 24, 2015, Beer released "All For Love" featuring American duo Jack & Jack.[23]

2017–present: As She Pleases and Life Support

Beer walked the runway at the Dolce & Gabbana show during Milan Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2017/18 campaign on February 26, 2017 in Milan, Italy. She recorded her first extended play, titled As She Pleases, over a three-year period. It was released on February 2, 2018. "Dead" was released as the lead single from the EP on May 19, 2017. The music video was later released on August 3, 2017. Beer then released "Say It to My Face" as the second single from the EP on November 3, 2017. The music video was released on November 15, 2017.

On March 10, 2018, "Home with You" was released as the third and final single from the EP. In August 2018, the song peaked at number #21 on the Billboard Mainstream Top 40 chart, making her the only female solo artist on the charts without a major music label.[24] She made her official festival debut at Lollapalooza on August 2, 2018 in Chicago. Beer was featured on "Blame It On Love", a song from French DJ David Guetta seventh studio album 7. The video game developer Riot Games released a song and music video for "Pop/Stars" on November 3, 2018. This song is performed by Beer, Miyeon and Soyeon from (G)I-DLE and Jaira Burns under virtual K-pop group named K/DA. This song was used as a theme song for online game League of Legends towards the end of 2018.[25] On November 9, 2018, Beer released "Hurts Like Hell" featuring American rapper Offset.

Beer was featured on "All Day and Night" by DJs Jax Jones and Martin Solveig under their alias Europa. This song was released on March 28, 2019.[26] On May 17, 2019, Beer released the single "Dear Society", the first single of her upcoming debut album, titled Life Support.[16][27][28] On August 9, 2019, Beer announced on her Instagram account that she had signed with Epic Records.[29]
