Queen of Mean is a song featured in Descendants 3. It is sung by Sarah Jeffery in her role as Audrey. It is the second song in Descendants 3 and the soundtrack.

Background[]

Audrey sadly draws a picture of herself as Queen of Auradon, but soon seethes with a jealous rage that Ben chose Mal; furious over the fact that Ben genuinely desired the end of their relationship, with the love spell being a convenient excuse. Even her Grammy's disappointment in her losing a chance at the throne, and attitude towards her, rings in her head. Listening to the devil on her shoulder, Audrey decided to become the "Queen of Mean". She breaks into the museum for the Queen's crown, finding herself drawn to Maleficent's Scepter in the next room. Using its magic, she transforms herself into a more villainous look, declaring that she will get what she deserves.

Lyrics[]

[Verse 1:]
I’m so tired of pretending.
Where’s my happy ending?
I followed all the rules,
I drew inside the lines,
I never asked for anything that wasn’t mine.
I waited patiently for my time,
But when it finally came, he called her name.

And now I feel this overwhelming pain.
I mean, it’s in my veins.
I mean, it’s in my brain.
My thoughts are running in a circle like a toy train,
I’m kinda like a perfect picture with a broken frame.
I know exactly who to blame.

I never thought of myself as mean,
I always thought that I’d be the Queen.
And there’s no in-between,
'cause if I can’t have that then
I will be the leader of the dark and the bad.
Now there’s a devil on my shoulder where the angels used to be
and he’s calling me the Queen.

[Verse 2:]
Being nice was my pastime,
but I’ve been hurt for the last time.
And I won’t ever let another person take advantage of me,
The anger burns my skin, third-degree.

Now my blood’s boiling hotter than a fiery sea,
There’s nobody getting close to me.
They’re gonna bow to the Evil Queen,
Your nightmare's my dream.
Just wait until they fall to my wicked schemes.

I never thought of myself as mean,
I always thought that I’d be the Queen.
And there’s no in-between,
'cause if I can’t have that then
I will be the leader of the dark and the bad.
Now there’s a devil on my shoulder where the angels used to be
and he’s calling me the Queen of Mean.
The Queen of Mean.
The Queen of Mean.

[Bridge:]
Something is pulling me,
It’s so magnetic.
My body is moving,
Unsure where I’m headed.

All of my senses have left me defenseless,
This darkness around me is promising vengeance.
The price that I’m willing to pay is expensive,
There’s nothing to lose when you’re lonely and friendless.
So my only interest is showing this princess,
that I am the Queen and my reign will be endless.

I want what I deserve,
I want to rule the world.
Sit back and watch them learn,
It’s finally my turn

[Verse 3:]
If they want a villain for a Queen,
I’m gonna be the one they’ve never seen.
I’ll show them what it means,
Now that I am that, I'll be the ruler of the dark and the bad.
‘Cause the devil’s on my shoulder where the angels used to be,
and he’s calling me the Queen of Mean.
The Queen of Mean.
I want what I deserve

Trivia[]

  • An unknown voice saying Audrey's name can faintly be heard coming from the scepter, most likely Maleficent's voice, however, it is truly unknown. It could also be a reference to when Aurora in Sleeping Beauty was drawn towards the spinning wheel in which the voice calling to her was her own voice so there's a small possibility the voice Audrey hears is her own.
  • When Descendants 3 premiered on August 2, 2019, this song was the most trending song on YouTube.
  • Audrey's hair turns pink with blue highlights when she turns evil, a reference to when Flora and Merryweather were fighting over what color Aurora's dress will be in Sleeping Beauty.
  • The song peaked at Number 49 on the Billboard Hot 100, making it the highest hot 100 charting song in the whole Descendants franchise.
