In a frightening moment, Roc Nation singer Maeta was bitten by a snake during a shoot. Surrounded by serpents during a shoot, the 'Bi*** Don't Be Mad' singer was bitten on her chin by one of them. The behind-the-scenes clip of the incident has given her fans the chills.
Sharing a short clip of the scary moment on Instagram, Maeta wrote, "what I go through to make videos for y’all". She has now turned off comments for the post. The viral clip shows the 'R&B' singer laying on a carpet, donning a lace bodusuit and a long braid. Two snakes can be seen placed on her. In a chilling moment, one of the snakes bites her on her chin. A startled Maeta can be seen quickly moving away. She seemingly avoided any major injury.
In April of this year, Maeta signed to Jay-Z’s label. She shared her music on SoundCloud and Instagram. Maeta, an Indianapolis native, released her debut EP 'Do Not Disturb' back in 2019. In May of this year, she released 'Habits'. The singer grew up with artistic parents -- her mother is a visual artist and her father plays the drums. Maeta attributes her music sound to R&B artists such as Kid Cudi, Alicia Keys, Beyoncé and SZA.
According to the Roc Nation website, "Maeta first stole the hearts of fans through SoundCloud releases and Instagram cover clips. Her debut EP, Do Not Disturb, was released in November 2019 and encapsulated Maeta's many moods and emotions since moving from Indianapolis to Los Angeles earlier that year to focus on her career. It received critical acclaim, with Refinery29 saying of the first single “Babygirl,” “Honest to god, a song hasn't soothed my nerves as much as this one in a WHILE. I needed it.” Showcasing the breadth of her artistic vision, Maeta released striking visuals for each song on the EP, along with various covers for her #MaetaMondays social media series, during which she puts her own spin on an eclectic group of hit songs from the likes of Drake and Kehlani."
"Maeta’s artistic parents - her mom is a visual artist, her dad plays the drums - nurtured and encouraged their daughter’s creativity and pushed her to freely explore her expressive passions including visual arts and even the art of make-up. And like many parents, the music they played around the house, including the Eagles and John Mayer, became the building blocks of her sound. At the same time, like most young people, she gravitated towards the music of her teen years including Kid Cudi, Alicia Keys, Beyoncé and SZA and their ability to use music to speak truth to their feelings," the website adds. "These influences, her natural singing ability and the fact that she is a self-proclaimed “daydreamer” who “falls in love too fast” and is drawn to sad songs, brought her to the sound you hear today - blending pop and soul with lyrics that allow Maeta to be a voice for those who struggle to express their emotions. Her goal: to be a positive light. She also has a passion for performing live, despite her stage fright, and her big dream is to play in front of thousands of people at large festivals around the world because she sees that as a place of “ultimate freedom.”"
