Mariah the Scientist continues to impress. The Atlanta-based singer-songwriter is slowly but surely capturing the attention of fans of R&B and she is building momentum with every release. This time around she enlists Lil Baby for her new single “Always n Forever”.
The connective single finds Mariah exploring a newfound perspective on life and romance. With a hint of romanticism, it feels as if she wins the lottery, and she actually does in the music video for the song. A never-ending spotlight is highlighted on Mariah’s vocals, allowing to keep the focus on her even with an all-star collaborator by her side.
Lil Baby arrives and glides through the production prepared. Counteracting what the singer had set up, Lil Baby provides an alternative reality, one that suggests something different to Mariah’s newfound perspective. The two are a natural duo, one that doesn’t sound force or contrived, but it highlights a new era ushering in for Atlanta r&b/hip-hop.
In 2019, Mariah the Scientist made her major label debut with Master, while she released the single “RIP” back in May.
