Atlanta-based R&B singer-songwriter Mariah The Scientist delivers new powerful single ‘Bout Mine’
Her silky vocals pleading to an unnamed lover “Feelin’ lost, feelin’ nervous and I know I don’t deserve this/ What’s it cost? ‘Cause I want you back, babe, goin’ sad lately,”along with relaxed synths embodies the effortlessly cool honesty that Mariah is praised for. The accompanying video, directed by Cam Busby & Mariah The Scientist, sees Mariah set out for revenge. The visualizer quickly escalates as she confronts the man that wronged her.
Mariah shares: “See, love is a pretty strong word. You don’t say it if you don’t mean it. You don’t play with it. You live for it. But there’s a thin line between love and loyalty, and loyalty… I’ll die for.”
“Bout Mine” follows the March 2022 release of Mariah The Scientist’s EP Buckles Laboratories Presents: The Intermission.
