Early life[edit]

Lindemann (born Margaret Lindemann) was born in Dallas, Texas.[1] She began posting recordings of her singing on the social media app Keek, gaining a following both on the app and her other social media accounts.[2] Her career in music began after her manager, Gerald Tennison, discovered a video of her singing on her Instagram page. She then relocated to Los Angeles to pursue music.[3]

Career[edit]

2015–present[edit]

Lindemann's debut single "Knocking On Your Heart" was released in September 2015. The song earned her a Top 20 spot on the iTunes Alternative Chart within 24 hours of its release.[4]

Her second single "Couple Of Kids" was released on October 30, 2015. On January 29, 2016, her third single "Things" was released, earning her another successful top 25 hit on the iTunes Alternative Chart within a day of its release.[4] The song also broke the Top 50 on the Spotify Viral 50 worldwide chart and the top 5 of the Canada viral chart. The official music video of her single "Things" was released on her YouTube channel on February 5, 2016.[5]

As of January 2018, her YouTube channel has over 93 million views combined.[6] On September 29, 2016, she released the single "Pretty Girl", her first single since signing to 300 Entertainment.[7] The song peaked at #4 on the Next Big Sound chart, and at #26 on the Spotify Viral 50 chart.[8] Lindemann wrote the song to "show people that there's more to girls than just being pretty. We have so much to offer. People should get past the physical appearance to something deeper."[9] The music video for "Pretty Girl" premiered through People on March 9, 2017.[10] "Pretty Girl" is Lindemann's first song to ever chart on the US Pop Radio Charts as it peaked at 50.[11] It also peaked at #8 on the UK Singles Chart. Lindemann featured in The Vamps' single "Personal", released October 13, 2017.[12]

Lindemann released the single "Obsessed" on November 17, 2017.[13] On October 26, 2018 she released the single "Human".[14] She released the single "Would I" on November 16, 2018.[15] In March 2019, Lindemann was the supporting act for Sabrina Carpenter on the North American leg of the Singular Tour.[16][17][18] She released the single "Friends Go" on April 24, 2019.[19]

In 2019, while performing in Malaysia, Lindemann was escorted off the stage and arrested for performing without a professional visit pass, as required by all foreigners performing work in the country. She was released on bail after day, with the event organizers pleading guilty. She has described the incident as "five days of living hell"[20].

Personal life[edit]

In 2016, Lindemann publicly came out as bisexual.[21] As of 2019, Lindemann has been dating Brandon Arreaga, a member of the boy band PrettyMuch.[citation needed]

Influences[edit]

Lindemann credits Lana Del Rey, Banks, and Spooky Black as some of her main influences, calling them "the 'anti pop stars'...off-kilter artists who do their individual thing and are unconcerned with being mainstream."[22]
