hmv's Next Big Thing... #241 Madison Beer
Every Wednesday we recommend a brand new artist who we think you're going to love. This week we bring you powerhouse Madison Beer...
Who Is She?
Madison Beer is a New Yorker, who, at 20 years old, is already a comparative veteran in the music industry. She first found some fame at 12, when a certain Mr Justin Bieber was so taken with her cover of Etta James' 'At Last', he sent it out to millions and millions of followers.
Beer signed with Bieber's management and Island Records and began to release singles, building up to a debut album. But the arrangement didn't work out and the album was scrapped.
She kept working and is now signed up with Epic Records, with two big hits under her belt, 'Hurts Like Hell', her collaboration with rapper Offset, and 'All Day and Night' by DJs Jax Jones and Martin Solveig.
What Does She Sound Like?
Beer's sound is a glossy mix of pop and R&B, think Red era Rihanna or early days of P!nk.
Why Should I Be Excited?
Big hooks, big production and massive choruses, you'll be hearing her voice a lot in years to come.
Can I Hear Something?
You can. Her new single 'Dear Society' is below for you:
