On social media, Carey admitted that she took “a lifetime to have the courage and the clarity to write [the] memoir.” She wants “to tell the story of the moments – the ups and downs, the triumphs and traumas. The debacles and the dreams, that contributed to the person” that she is. The memoir was co-written by the journalist Michaela Angela Davis.

To mark this date, the Songbird Supreme will release every Friday “rarities and surprises”, in a project named “MC30 Every Friday”, as she announced on social media. The release of this content was postponed to 17 July, due to the Black Lives Matter movement, when MariahCarey posted on YouTube and on audio streaming platforms one of her unreleased live performances from 1990 - “The Live Debut - 1990”.

Mariah Carey revealed to British Vogue that during the quarantine she had been busy with home concerts and writing new songs for her 16th album.

The singer, that has already achieved 19 #1 Billboard hits, last album “Caution” was released in 2018.
