Mariah Carey is revealing the existence of an album that she recorded in the 90s.
“Fun fact: I did an alternative album while I was making Daydream,” she posted on Twitter. “Just for laughs, but it got me through some dark days. Here’s a little of what I wrote about it in #TheMeaningOfMariahCarey. S/O to my friend Clarissa who performs the lead w/ me as a hidden layer.”
The album is described as alternative rock unlike the pop and R&B that Carey is famous for, she describes it in her new book, “The Meaning of Mariah Carey.”
“I was playing with the with the style of the breezy-grunge, punk-light white female singers who were popular at the time,” she writes in the preview pages of the book. “You know the ones who seemed to be so carefree with their feelings and their image. They could be angry, angsty, and messy, with old shoes, wrinkled slips, and unruly eyebrows, while every move I made was so calculated and manicured. I wanted to break free, let loose, and express my misery—but I also wanted to laugh.”
Die-hard Mariah Carey fans are demanding the album’s release!
