Mariah Gives A Little More ‘Perreito’ This Quarantine
The voice behind “Perreito,” Mariah Angeliq, gives an inside scoop on what she has coming up in her next projects and what she’s doing at home during the quarantine.
Mariah Angelique Pérez, known in the music industry as Mariah Angeliq, is a US-based reggaeton and trap artist that has hustled to quickly place herself at the top of the urban music genre.
The 20-year-old artist already has one hit single under her belt, “Perreito,” which has made everyone rush to the dance floor. Latido music interviewed the artist, who was born in Miami, to talk about what she’s up to during quarantine. She also shared another secret that you’re about to find out. 😉
Q: Mariah, you’re only 20 years old yet you have a huge career in the industry…How did this happen?
A: When you’re really young, sometimes people don’t pay much attention to you. The music industry is complicated, nonetheless, I let my music speak for itself.
Q: You ran away from home and your musical career began, what was that experience like?
A: Haha, it was hard but I had to do it. My mom was very overprotective with me and she didn’t let me do what I wanted, but I knew I had the talent to make it, to grow in music if that’s what I decided to do. When I took that risk was when I met Nelly, El Arma Secreta, and that’s when I realized that you have to risk it all to be who you really want to be.
Q: How did you become so close to El Arma Secreta?
A: I met Nelly in the studio, back when I only sang in English. He saw something in me that he liked, so we started working together and Nelly said something like, “we have to have her sing in Spanish!” and that was that.
Q: How have you been dealing with the quarantine and everything surrounding COVID-19?
A: I always try to look on the bright side of things. I’ve written a lot of songs during quarantine, I’ve been concentrating on myself, my career, and the good that can come from this moment.
Q: Has the quarantine affected any plans?
A: Yes, I think for all artists. 2020 is the year when I was most active in concerts and events and well, everything seems to be on pause for the moment. To give you some perspective, I opened up Premio Lo Nuestro and that was a huge step in my career and as soon as this is over I’ll be back for more.
Q: You’ve had a few releases these last few months, can we expect more music from Mariah as an antivirus?
A: Yes, I’ve had a few releases, canciones cabronas. Not too long ago I released “Y Que Paso?” beside Brray and the track goes hard and as for quarantine, you’re going to see a lot more. I have a whole lineup of songs for you to enjoy at home right now, even some big collaborations with Ñengo Flow and Lyanno, están cabronas.
Chosen by Pandora as one of their “Latino Artists to Follow in 2020,” Mariah Angeliq has managed to be seen in the urban music scene as a promising artist in the genre, and as she mentioned, there’s even more to come this quarantine.
Nothing left to do now but prepare ourselves and enjoy a little “Perreito” during quarantine.
