Exclusive! Sarah Jeffery explains how the success of her Descendants 3 solo hit “Queen of Mean” led to new single “Even the Stars.”
Sarah Jeffery is striking while the iron is hot.
After a banner 2019 that saw “Queen of Mean,” her solo song from the hit Disney Channel Original Movie Descendants 3, reach No. 49 on the Billboard Hot 100—becoming the first solo track from a DCOM to chart that high since Camp Rock over a decade ago—she’s ready to go full pop star.
Known primarily for her acting work on shows like Shades of Blue and Charmed—where she currently stars as youngest witchy sister Maggie—Jeffery’s just released “Even the Stars,” her first single independent of a film project. And she has the success of the Descendants track, written and produced for her character Audrey by Rock Mafia, the prolific production duo comprised of Tim James and Antonina Armato, to thank for it.
“I’ve always been very passionate about music,” Jeffery told E! News exclusively on the eve of the tracks’ release. “I did musical theater as a kid growing up and, obviously with the Descendants films, that was a big part of it. And so it has always been, in my mind, that that’s something I wanted to pursue. But it actually kind of worked out perfectly. Rock Mafia, who wrote ‘Queen of Mean’ and wrote a surplus of songs for descendants and other DCOMs, they approached me and, [after] the success of ‘Queen of Mean,’ were like, ‘We would love to work with you again.’ And it just made sense to me.”
As Jeffery explained, Rock Mafia came to her with “eight or so songs” and asked her which ones resonated with her. She said that her connection to the inspiring pop of “Even the Stars” was immediate. “It has a strong message, I think, especially for the time we’re in right now,” she said, adding, “It’s just sort of talking about how there are dark times and light times and you can’t have the light without the dark—which I think is such an important reminder. And for myself, I’m very open about my struggle with mental health. And that’s another reason that I connected to the song…An important thing to keep in mind when you’re going through ups and downs in your own personal life is that you have to have dark times to sort of feel and see the light.”
