Within the past few weeks, TikTok has been dominated by viral trends where users recount their crazy years over a sped-up version of “Spread Thin” by Mariah The Scientist. Although the song was released back in March, the Atlanta-born singer appreciated the recent attention paid to the song enough to release its official music video yesterday (October 25). As her lyrics are played over various vlog clips of her year thus far, she has created a visual ode to the TikTok trend.
Mariah released the song along with an acknowledgement to those who had already been singing along for several weeks before it became viral. “I would like to thank my fans that were riding this stuff before TikTok!” “I created the video to reflect what your year was like based on your responses to our song,” she wrote on Twitter.
RY RY WORLD was Mariah’s last album before she passed away in 2021. Young Thug and Lil Baby both contributed to that body of work through their appearances on ten different tracks. According to the press release, the “Spread Thin” singer is currently on tour with Rod Wave in support of his “Beautiful Mind Tour.” Her most recent collaboration was with Dess Dior on her song “Stone Cold.”
