Mariah The Scientist Marries Young Thug In The Official Music Video For “Walked In”

Rising R&B sensation Mariah the Scientist kicks off the new year with the release of the official music video for Walked In featuring Young Thug. Highly in demand by fans, the “Walked In” video centers around an ATL-style wedding between Mariah and Young Thug with Gunna playing the role of a best man. It’s the final piece in the roll-out of Mariah’s sophomore album, RY RY WORLD, which catapulted her into the spotlight after its release last summer. “R&B has never seen a femme fatale quite like Mariah the Scientist” Vicepraised, while NPR named the project as one of the Best R&B Albums Of The Year. Pitchfork, who named “2 You” as one of the 100 Best Songs Of 2021, said that “Mariah is one of modern R&B’s realest talkers, as well as one of its most vivid storytellers.”

Born and raised in Atlanta on a steady diet of R&B, Mariah the Scientist arrived on the music scene in 2018 with her indelible project To Die For, showcasing her take on the genre that’s sonically shaped her. It was a defining moment for the artist, who had quit studying biology at St. John’s University in Queens, New York to become an anesthesiologist. The metamorphosis from science student to star artist for the 24-year-old came naturally. Self-sufficient in her creative process, Mariah’s honest songwriting and unique conceptual visuals have set her as a fearless and unapologetic voice in R&B. Her 2019 major label debut Master was a wry and profoundly personal collection of self-reflective ballads layered with sparse, cinematic instrumentals. With over 31 million streams worldwide and counting, Master set the stage for RY RY WORLD. Two years in between each release, the connecting projects depict how Mariah saw things then versus now and how she has evolved. A departure from the melancholic songwriting that propelled her, RY RY WORLD displays Mariah’s hitmaking sensibilities and her tendency to defy expectations. The album debuted at #4 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart and was #1 on Billboard’s Next Big Sound. Its success led to a string of sold out shows in Atlanta, New York and LA, and performances at the biggest festivals including Made In America, Day N Vegas, Pitchfork Festival and Rolling Loud. Earlier this week, Coachella revealed their 2022 lineup and Mariah is set to perform on Sunday, April 17th and April 24th. With more Mariah the Scientist moments in the making, stay tuned for upcoming news.
