Explaining the inspiration behind the album’s title, Mariah the Scientist stated, “Scorpions, like myself, are considered non-social and solitary animals. Interacting only on rare occasions, such as courtship. For the grand and notable lion, the scorpion seems to be a small feat. They are an unpredictable match and yet they establish a mutual respect for each other’s curious differences. They are both natural-born predators. This bond requires sacrifice, trust, and discipline. As for the venomous scorpion, to be eaten alive is to kill.”
To Be Eaten Alive serves as the follow-up to Mariah the Scientist’s 2022 EP, Buckles Laboratories Presents: The Intermission. Prior to that, she released her albums Ry Ry World in 2021 and “Master” in 2019.
Mariah recently announced her signing with Epic Records, a notable shift from her previous label, RCA Records. Epic Records’ President Ezekiel Lewis expressed excitement about the partnership, stating, “She is well equipped to help lead R&B music into the future, and we could not be more thrilled to be her partners on that journey.”
