Andrea Springs into Summer with “Betting on You”

After a whirlwind eight months, Andrea is entering summer 2021 with a string of successes and releasing her next single, “Betting on You” on June 15. In her new song, Andrea demands more than “just another pretty face,” asking “that there’s gotta be more than the empty words you’ll say.” Andrea has proven herself over the first months of her fledgling career, scoring over 7 million streams on Tik-Tok and 1.9 million on YouTube.

The rising pop artist says the goal behind “Betting on You” was to create a fresh, modern pop song, focused on the universal theme of love, but emphasizing the risks that one has to take. Andrea describes her new song as being about “making an unexpected connection with someone, and choosing to dive in without really knowing how it will develop.” This choice relies on the innate risk assessment we all make when we meet someone new.

“Betting on You” will be available everywhere on June 15.

Born 14 February 2000, her love of music began at age 5, when her parents moved to Harlem for a one-year program. Her earliest recollections are the gospel, soul, and R&B she absorbed, which transformed her into a life-long music lover. The daughter of a law professor father and a physician mother, her parents expected her to follow a "respectable" career.

Blogs have called her "Macedonia's leading indie artist." EQ Music said, “Andrea’s on a trajectory to become Macedonia’s answer to Dua Lipa because of the way she approaches pop in a modern, engaging style.” The Other Side Reviews said, “‘I Know’ is an electropop sensation with dynamic instrumentation and rich vocals. Reminiscent of Florence & The Machine with greater influences from R&B, Andrea displays soulful tones with the confidence and sophistication of a much older artist.”

Her debut release, “I Know,” was the feature of a premiere in a prestigious UK music blog, Blackplastic, which described “I Know” as a love song that quivers with the excitement of an instant attraction. Andrea has been featured in other music blogs in the US, Brazil, Poland, and Russia. She has been interviewed for Radio and Podcasts in the US, UK, Holland, and Mexico. “I Know” has been played on over 150 radio stations around the world in over 30 countries, including the US, UK, Germany, Holland, Italy, Switzerland, Norway, France, Mexico, Canada, Singapore, South Africa, Greece, Macedonia, Bulgaria, and others. In addition to 1.9 million views on YouTube, her music has been streamed over seven million times on TikTok. In just a few short months since her debut release, Andrea has already become the most international of Macedonia’s music stars.
