Maggie Andrew Ft. blackbear Shares “Sleep 4Ever”

“Maggie makes music with teeth.” That’s what Pigeons and Planes had to say about Maggie Andrew’s debut, independently-released single in the summer of 2019. Not only did that song put the 21-year old, LA-based pop artist, songwriter and creator on their radar — but it also put her squarely on the radar of pop behemoth blackbear, who reached out directly to MAGGIE about collaborating. The track “Sleep 4Ever” with blackbear, drops February 12th via Black Box and features art direction from MAGGIE’s brother, visual artist and Gucci Ghost creator, Trouble Andrew. These co-signs have created an incredible global launchpad for MAGGIE to share her “unexpected, sometimes confrontational assortment of words, melodies and arrangements” (Pigeons & Planes).

Discussing the background of “Sleep 4Ever,” Maggie Andrew says: Ash (Riser – Kendrick Lamar, ABSoul, IDK) had written a song forever ago and it felt perfect for me, so we hooked up with Isaiah (Vest) and Rob (Bressler) to help make the vibe fit what we were going for. Meanwhile, blackbear had heard my first single and loved it, and ended up connecting with my brother (artist Trouble Andrew / Gucci Ghost). We ended up coming together and made this song. For the past five years, bear’s been the top of my list on who I wanted to work with, it’s totally surreal to me.
