After a challenging last year, Andrea is emerging into 2021 with a lighthearted perspective, with the new release of her music video “Talk To Me.” With over 20,000 streams in its first 12 hours of release, the single is a fun, carefree track about the art of flirtation. “I really wanted to make an escapist song that people can just enjoy, sit back, relax, and dance,” says Andrea. Her debut release, “I Know,” premiered in a prestigious UK music blog, Blackplastic, and her late 2020 release “I Don’t Know Your Name” exceeded all expectations with nearly 120,000 streams between the original and remixes.

The rising pop artist says the goal behind “Talk To Me” was to create a fresh, modern sound while incorporating some retro synthwave elements. Lyrics like “don’t wanna wait or hold back,  don’t wanna lose you out of sight” emphasize the passionate, in-the-moment urges people get when developing an exciting new crush. “Talk To Me” is the break we all need from serious topics – it takes listeners away to the most untroubled, yet lively moments in life.

Music is Universal. The words Skopje and Macedonia rarely arise when you speak of modern music. In fact, no artist has reached popular success outside the borders of the former Yugoslavia. Andrea is on a different journey than any before her.  Her overarching goal is to transform her audience through the power of music — to help them discover who they are. Andrea’s voice touches your soul.
