ABOUT A.R. THE MERMAID:
Wielding a sharp signature rasp, serving up scorching bars, and exerting a presence as overpoweringly magnetic as your favorite anime heroine, A.R. The Mermaid injects effusive and enigmatic energy into the culture. The Memphis-born native asserts herself as a fiery force with an inimitable and irresistible style. She honed her voice in church before auditioning for the R&B outfit Karma. At 15-years-old, she earned her spot in the group and hit the recording studio for the first time. Learning the ins and outs of the business, she developed her performance chops on tour with Mindless Behavior and The OMG Girls. Amicably parting ways with the group, she focused on her solo artistry. Equally under the influence of anime a la High-Rise Invasion and Pokémon (Gengar inspired her eyebrows!) as well as Hoodrich Pablo Juan, YoungBoy Never Broke Again, Sauce Walka, and Money Man, she grabbed a mic and taught herself how to rap. Initially, she gained traction with “Try Me” in 2019. Fans clamored for more as she grew her social media following. “Come Outside” and “First Day Out” maintained her momentum before she caught fire with “Let A Ho Play.” Powered up by her uncontainable hustle, off-kilter rhymes, and undeniable chant, it reeled over 1 million cumulative views and streams. Not to mention, superstars such as SZA and K. Michelle touted it on social media, while Drake followed her. After piling up millions of views and streams and receiving plugs by Dirty Glove Bastard and AllHipHop.com, this energy defines a series of 2023 singles and her forthcoming debut for 300 Entertainment.
