Faith-driven singer Mariah Hester’s evolution on display with single ‘Bizness’

The singer discusses her new single, ‘Bizness’

Mariah Hester, known as Mariah. (with a period) has been singing since the age of 5. The church choir, talent shows, school plays, and her mom’s rigid vocal coaching were the bedrock of Mariah’s initial training. Strong in her faith in God, this NICU nurse and proud member of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Incorporated continued to sing and perform while pursuing her degree and serving in multiple roles.

Mariah. spoke with rolling out about her singing career, and her new single, “Bizness.”

What is your new single “Bizness” about?

From my first introductory single “Material Girl,” it speaks from a woman that’s at a crossroads and if she should let material possessions cater to the longevity of her relationships. In the process of doing that, she finds herself. Now we go over into “Bizness,” which is the call-and-response to “Material Girl.” And basically, she has found herself, she knows who she is, and she knows where she’s going. She realizes that sometimes you have to drop people off at the intersection, and as you drop the individual off, you always have someone that’s in your business that wants to know what you’re doing, and they’re always on social media trying to find out your life. I know we all had that happen at one time or another, and this is just a song about that. You’ve been in my business, but I’m not going to give you what you thought I was going to give you, which is attention.

Would you say this is an evolution of you as a person?

I definitely think that. I think when I wrote “Material Girl,” God had given me the ability to be able to write what I’m going through in that current time, so I always give praise to him for that. With “Material Girl,” I was in a time of my life where I was really honestly trying to figure out who I was, and figure out what I wanted to do in life and who I really wanted to be with, because who you’re with is a great representation of who you are. It’s like a mirror. If I’m with someone who is not of like kind, then what is that going to do to me? So I was very much so in that vein. Now heading over to “Bizness,” I know who I am. I’m solidified in who I am as a person. Going through that process was beautiful and showed that I was broken, but I was broken for usage. From the business standpoint, I know who I am, I know where I’m going, and I know who I don’t want to be associated with.
