Kicking things off with “Once Upon A Time,” still her most popular track, was a smart move:

On top of drama like that, she continues to explain her background to fans who wonder is Mariahlynn mixed. Renewed interest in the question comes in part from all the attention DJ Drewski has gotten this year–whether or not you agree that Drewski is the first white cast member on Love & Hip Hop depends somewhat on your definition of the term:

Meanwhile, on the eve of her performance-based LHHNY episode, Mariahlynn also dropped her latest single–appropriately named “Play Fair”:
