Mariah Carey Had Big Plans For Her Secret Alternative Album That Was Never Released

Over the weekend, it was revealed that Mariah Carey secretly recorded an alternative rock album during the same time she was working on Daydream.

After the response from fans, the 50-year-old singer has revealed that she actually had big plans for the release of the record.

Mariah shared with Stephen Colbert on The Late Show that she wanted to shoot a music video where she would disguise herself in costume and release it to the world – but it was nixed by her record label.

“That got stifled by certain people at the label, so I kind of had to abandon the project,” Mariah says.

However, years after recording it, her fans are finally hearing it and Mariah is happy.

“I’m kind of happy that, at this moment, the fans are actually hearing it,” she says. “Because it’s me doing an accent, doing an imitation of someone that I created that doesn’t actually exist.”

If you missed it, Mariah just released her memoir, “The Meaning of Mariah Carey”, today. Read an excerpt here!
