Mariah The Scientist Releases Third Album ‘TO BE EATEN ALIVE’ Featuring Young Thug, 21 Savage, and More

Mariah The Scientist makes her long-awaited comeback with the release of her new album, To Be Eaten Alive, her third studio album and first since signing with Epic Records earlier this year.

Young Thug, Kaytranada, 21 Savage, and Vory all make appearances on the album. To Be Eaten Alive is now available.

Mariah deconstructed the metaphorical nature of her new album’s title ahead of its release. “As for the venomous scorpion,” she says, referencing her astrological sign, “To Be Eaten Alive is to Kill.”

Mariah delivers on that principle over the course of ten tracks and 30 minutes, exuding strength derived from emotional vulnerability with every pulsating croon and note, weaving personal tales over mellifluous instrumentals inspired by a variety of genres such as R&B, Blues, Hip Hop, and New Wave.

The lead single from To Be Eaten Alive, “From A Woman,” is representative of this effort. Based on first-week sales, “From A Woman” has firmly established Mariah as a force within the 2020s alt-R&B movement, and provides a glimpse of the starpower she possesses.

Mariah’s ability to err on the intimate side is noted by Uproxx, who writes that the single is “a romantic jam in every sense of the word,” and Mariah quickly became a hot topic across streaming services, as the album itself hit #1 on the Apple R&B chart before it even released, while her lead single success allowed Mariah to grace the covers of renowned playlists at Spotify (R&B Weekly), Apple Music (R&B Now, and R&B Now),

Mariah doubles down on her strength but also reminds her audience of her range in other songs on the album.

The tempo picks up when she joins forces with Kaytranada for “Out of Luck,” and an acoustic-only outro with Young Thug, “Ride,” reinforces the notion that, while R&B fuels Mariah The Scientist, it does not define her. “I told someone I wanted to create a new genre,” she says to Complex. “I also wanted to call it A&B, which stands for Alternative and Blues.”

The anticipation for the ‘Alt-Blues’ star was palpable prior to its release. Her scorpion-themed artwork was ‘liked’ nearly a quarter-million times on Instagram.

To Be Eaten Alive peaked at No. 2 on Apple Music’s Global Weekly Pre-Adds chart, despite Mariah leading with only one single—a sign that her audience has bought into her vision holistically.

After four years of development on the major label and independent circuit, Mariah The Scientist signed a new deal with Epic Records in 2023.

Her first two studio albums, Master and Ry Ry World, established her as a significant newcomer with her uniquely thoughtful and emotional ballads and penchant for nostalgic soundscapes.

“Mariah is a dynamic creative force with a clear vision for her music and the experience surrounding it,” says Epic Records President Ezekiel Lewis.
