Mariah, named after Mariah Carey, is the determined star on the rise who ran away from home at 16 to record music. Her Cuban and Puerto Rican parents raised her in Miami with the expectation that she become a doctor. Mariah's leap of faith paid off as she gained traction performing at SXSW, the Calle Ocho Festival, and on the club circuit.
After signing with Universal in 2019, she released, "Perreito" — which reached a whopping 16 million streams. Mariah's fierce, racy lyrics over trap beats are a nod to the dominance of OG female reggaeton artists.
The core of her message is financial independence for women. She sings that women should never settle for a man who wants to buy their love. Her new hit "Una Noche Más" is a slowed-down, sensual, beachy song with a catchy chorus that proves her range as an artist.
Collabs with Nicky Jam, Myke Towers, and Casper Magico are rumored to be on the way. We expect big moves for Mariah in 2020.
