Sarah Jeffery did not expect ‘Queen of Mean’ to be so popular
In an interview with Billboard, Jeffery discussed the Descendants franchise and “Queen of Mean.” According to Jeffery, she never expected the song to be so popular so quickly.
“I didn’t expect [‘Queen of Mean’] to gain so much popularity so quickly,” she said. “You don’t really know how people are going to react to it, if it’s going to land, and it’s just impossible to predict. But I’m so grateful that this thing that I worked really hard on and was so excited about is getting recognition.”
Jeffery feels the reason for the song’s popularity is because of the song’s lyrics and the message it gives.
“I feel like people can relate to it because it’s this song about never being seen and being forgotten about, and wanting to change that,” she said.
The actress got emotional when she first heard the song, as it was her first solo song in the franchise. It later went on to be the most successful solo song in the entire franchise.
“When I heard it for the first time, I got emotional,” she said. “I was like, ‘Wow, this is so beautiful,’ and I’m genuinely so grateful and excited that a song like that was written for me.”
