The vulnerable, raw expression that composes much of Mariah The Scientist’s catalog distinguishes her from much of today’s mainstream landscape, something she’s keen on continuing even as her profile grows. From performances at Coachella and Pitchfork Music Festival to collaborations beside Lil Baby, Youngboy Never Broke Again, Chris Brown, A Boogie and Young Thug, there’s no debating that Mariah is worthy of the spotlight. Still, she refuses to take the opportunity to genuinely connect with her audience for granted. “I don't think that creating art should be super forced. When you try to force art, you don't like it. At least the creator winds up not liking it.. And a lot of times, people don't realize that.”
Chxrry 22 isn’t looking for your approval. That immediately becomes clear after one listen to her dreamy debut single, “The Falls”. Smudging the lines between pop and R&B, she reveals that she’s fully aware of her imperfections, fearlessly admitting “I’d do it again, ‘cause baby I got problems.”
Born and raised by Ethiopian immigrants in the Scarborough district of Toronto, Chxrry 22 always loved to sing but never fully visualized the possibilities ahead of her. However, things changed in 2017 when she emerged as a promising talent after posting videos of herself singing covers on social media. Her perspective shifted when the videos went viral and landed her a deal with XO Records, the label headed by fellow Toronto native The Weeknd. Realizing she had created a rare opportunity for herself, she packed all of her things and moved to Atlanta to begin recording.
Chxrry 22’s vulnerability is her superpower, and she knows it. Her sensuous lyrics on “The Falls” prove that she has the right to do and say whatever she wants—regardless of how you feel.
