The songwriter and producer of pop, hip hop and RnB known as Mae Scott has released her latest official single, “I Love U.” The single has been proudly published as an independent release without the involvement of the corporate music industry on the Mae Scott record label. Sultry, classy, and humming with groove, “I Love U” is the newest reason for fans to applaud this rising entertainer from the American south.
In the past, Pittsburgh, PA’s Mae Scott has cited as influences Kanye West, Wiz Khalifa, Kendrick Lamar, Aaliyah, and R Kelly. Asking her today brings a different response, however.
“Honestly, I grew up in that MTV era where music videos were everything,” she writes, “but I also grew up on indie music videos, as well, by lesser known channels. Anything that was hot probably influenced me at some point while I was discovering myself. I’m focused now.”
That focus comes from living in a larger world than many people live in. A veteran of the US Army, Mae Scott served a tour in the war in Iraq before attending college where she started her first indie label, Academy Rhyme Time. She performed as a cheerleader for the Atlanta Falcons while she continued honing her music career. To date, she has already been nominated for a Grammy Award twice.
“My message tells people to find what their culture is,” says Mae Scott, “or what they want it to be personally, then go create that.”
This artistic integrity runs throughout her style.
“Like, you can have your own cake, make it, and eat it too, with the extra frosting and everything,” she writes. “Happy birthday. I enjoy making music uncensored and organically while in my own own space, free and naked. It’s time to express whatever I want, and you better remember that!”
Mae Scott’s “I Love U” is the most prominent release from the artist since her June 2018 single, “I Can Transform.” That track, too, had similar themes.
“[It’s] to not judge yourself and just run wild with your creation without self-imposed limits,” she wrote at the time. “So what if you’re nasty? We all are, some of us in front and some of us behind closed doors.”
“I Love U” by Mae Scott on the Mae Scott label is available from over 600 quality digital music stores online worldwide now.
