Music is a great way to connect people and the best musicians know how to sing their way into the hearts of many. It is no surprise therefore that they develop a religious following with fan pages and blogs dedicated to dissecting every aspect of their work and private life. Madison Beer has thus become a centre of attraction with various social media fan pages dedicated to her personal life and music, from Twitter to Reddit.
Madison Beer got a little help on her way to music stardom after Justin Bieber tweeted a link to one of her songs. Since then, life has been very different for the New York-born singer.
Madison Beer Comes From A Jewish Family
There is no denying that modern technology gets things done seemingly at the speed of light and that was how Madison Beer went from aspiring singer to superstar in practically the blink of an eye. Justin Bieber introduced the world to a star in the making, who was born on the 5th of March, 1999. She was born into a Jewish family, her parents being Robert Beer and Tracie Beer, an upper-middle-class family in Jericho, New York.

She Got Inclined To Music Pretty Early
Ever since she could walk and talk, Madison has been in love with singing and performing. As she grew older, her love grew stronger and she devoted herself to learning musical instruments such as the piano, drums, and guitar on the internet and from music books. While she educated herself on the technicalities of music, she received formal education at Jericho Middle School.
As a child born in the age of the internet and the existence of platforms like YouTube, she took her passion for music to the social media community and created a channel where she began uploading her cover of popular songs. At the time, she was thirteen years of age. It was the same year she celebrated her Bat Mitzvah as a Jewish girl.
The Fortune-changing Discovery By Justin Bieber And Career Beginnings
Madison began her adulthood with a bang. In that very same year she turned thirteen, a link to one of her YouTube cover songs was tweeted out by Justin Bieber, one of the world’s most popular music star. Bieber’s contribution to the beginnings of her career further continued with the signing of Madison Beer to the record label he is with, Island Records. Since this breakthrough, Madison has recorded and released a theme song for the franchise, Monster High.
Her debut single was a song titled ‘Melodies’ which was released in 2013, as well as its music video, with Bieber guest appearing in the music video. The follow-up single, ‘Unbreakable’ was released in 2014 and in the next year, Beer featured in DJ Mako’s single ‘I Won’t Let You Walk Away’ which was made available for digital download alongside its music video. The song clinched the No. 33 and No. 19 spots on Dance/Electronic Digital Songs and Dance/Mix Show Airplay Charts respectively.

Her first studio album was initially scheduled for a 2019 release. As a result, she released a single off the album, featuring rap star, Offset, but later removed it from the album’s tracklist. The single is titled ‘Hurts Like Hell’.
Madison’s Recent Career Exploits
In March 2019, DJs Jax Jones and Martin Solveig dropped a single ‘All Day and Night’ featuring Madison Beer. A few months later, precisely in May, she dropped ‘Dear Society,’ a single which she initially planned to include in the tracklist of her upcoming debut album but later removed it. Then in August 2019, the title of her album was disclosed and it’s named ‘Life Support’. In the same month, the rising music artist signed with Epic Records.
Afterwards, she publicised that her first studio album will be released in the summer of 2020 by Epic Records.

Her action was criticised by TikTok users as they deemed it inappropriate following the ongoing protests.
Madison Beer apologised on her Twitter handle, citing that she has been a supporter of the Balck Lives Matter Movement.

She refuted the claims that she staged a photo-shoot at the scene and also stated that she had been part of the protest for days and never took it as a photo-shooting opportunity.
In the same month, an Instagram Live clip showing where Beer stated that she romanticized “Lolita” – a Vladimir Nabokov’s 1955 novel about a middle-aged professor who becomes obsessed with a 12-year old girl whom he later got sexually involved with, went viral. As a result, a hashtag; #MadisonBeerIsOverParty started trending on Twitter at the time, but she later tweeted that the story was fake.
