Mariah Carey Announces ‘The Rarities’ Collection / Readies Lauryn Hill Collab ‘Save The Day’

Published: Wednesday 19th Aug 2020 by Sam

Mariah Carey is opening up the vault in an unprecedented way.

For, the supreme diva has just announced ‘The Rarities.’

Full story below…

Set for release on October 2, the collection is comprised of previously unheard gems spanning the length and breadth of Carey’s illustrious career.

Speaking on the LP, Mimi said:

This one is for you, my fans. It’s to celebrate us, and to thank you for years of pure love and support. I am so grateful to you THE RARITIES album is out October 2 . Pre-order now.

Per its pre-order page, it’ll be a double-disc – with side 1 populated by 15 unreleased gems including a song called ‘Save The Day’ featuring Lauryn Hill.

Side 2 is a live set made up of performances from a Tokyo show and includes renditions of ‘Fantasy,’ ‘Vision of Love,’ ‘Anytime You Need A Friend,’ ‘Hero,’ ‘One Sweet Day,’ and more.

The announcement precedes the September 29 release of the diva’s eagerly awaited memoir ‘The Meaning of Mariah Carey.’

It also follows a growing list of rare gems the songbird has hatched weekly in commemoration of 30 years in the music business. She aptly christened the mission #MC30.

Suffice to say, Mimi is feeding fans in a major way. Echoing our earlier sentiments, more legendary acts of her ilk ought to take note, because this is how to generate excitement.

    Yaaaaas! Buying!

    • Fancy BISH August 19, 2020

      LOVE the cover too ❤️🤳🏽

    I appreciate Mariah releasing as much of her unreleased material while she’s still with us and able to enjoy it with her fans rather than greedy record companies trying to profit off her passing.

    • AngelKeys August 19, 2020

      Totally agree. More artists should do this. Still can’t believe there no postphomous Aaliyah album. Her uncle is such a waste of space!

    • FMcL August 19, 2020

      My thoughts exactly !

    I was just saying the other day it would be fantastic to hear unreleased tracks and not just remixes.
    And that they should be released while she’s here, versus always getting that when artists are gone.

    I can’t wait ! I’m here for the book + that album 👍🏼

    • Sildek August 19, 2020

      Exactly! Let’s celebrate stars even when they are alive

  5. Sildek August 19, 2020

    Two great talents! Two wonderful legends and very beautiful women… all in one song! I Am impatiently waiting for ‘Save the day’. #MC30

  6. FRAUD August 19, 2020

    OMG! OMG! OOO MMM GGG !!! YES YES YEEES !!! I’ve been chasing unreelased songs from her since a looong time, thank you my Queen 😀 I’m so impatient… that’s one of the smartest move she ever made with her fanbase, we all are here for it, RESPECT.

    • Musiqlovah August 19, 2020

      And we know..back in the day Mariah Carey didn’t record a bad song….every album cut was a certified hit.

      • FRAUD August 20, 2020

        Straight facts, and why? Because this woman is one of the best vocalist and writter of the century. She can be proud of herself, that’s my Queen. She’s probably one of the last biggest talent left from the Michael Jackson era. Are we gonna have other real great artist like them in the future? I really hope… because right now it’s kinda scary to listen to the radio.

  7. #TheTruth August 19, 2020

    I hope it will mostly be unreleased songs and not just demos.
    Let’s wait for the tracklist 👍🏼

    • FRAUD August 19, 2020

      I personaly hope it will be unreleased and not b-sides… because she released 14 b-sides through her carriere, + Save the day and we have 15 songs… I really hope it’s not about that. As I bought all her albums and maxi-single, I don’t need it to have it twice.

  8. @robvado August 19, 2020

    I heard that Mariah is still waiting for Lauryn Hill to show up for the collab back in 2001.

    • FRAUD August 19, 2020

      “Crystal Ball (featuring Lauryn Hill) was originally written for the Rainbow album. It was a collaboration with hip-hop singer Lauryn Hill and it remains unreleased because of the fact that it was never recorded because both singers didn’t have time to record the song.”

  9. Arthus August 19, 2020

    So excited!
    It’s really a fan’s dream.
    Hope it will include unreleased from all eras.

    • FRAUD August 19, 2020

      I would love to see her release multiple unreleased albums from her beggining to her last release, like Vol.1, Vol.2, Vol.3 etc… imagine, this would be amazing for us.

    Just put Beyonce back up even though she can’t sing like Whitney Houston

    Mariah just isn’t attractive just put bey up f*** it.

    • FRAUD August 19, 2020

      She’s so inattractive that you are the only one to say it here. Mariah is and will always be a legend, she secured classical hits and albums, not like Beyoncé. Mariah has always been a CREATOR, a REAL artist unlike Beyoncé who’s a thief like many of her friends (Ed Sheeran for example) and others like J.Lo. Mariah is AUTHENTIC and that’s something Beyoncé will never be.

    • Fancy BISH August 19, 2020

      Mariah is so beautiful and serves PURE FACE better than ANY OTHER MUSIC ARTIST. 😂🤳🏽

  11. city girl August 19, 2020

    drop the track list queen!

  12. Keith August 19, 2020

    Congrats to Mariah fans! Yes, other legendary divas (Miss Janet) should pay attention. That’s the audio and video vault I’m waiting for!!!

  13. Tokyo Vanity Fan August 19, 2020

    Could this mean we are finally getting a HQ version of Sky Diving?

  14. Eric August 19, 2020

    She told GMA “I found stuff in my vault that I had either started to work on a long time ago and never released or that I wanted to finish mixing,” so we’re either getting the songs as they are or she has gone back and finished them. I hope it’s the latter.

    • Oh plz August 19, 2020

      I love MC, but I hope it’s not the latter since her voice is not what it used to be and finishing the songs now would likely result in a disjointed mess. But I’m still excited to here these gems.

      • Theman August 19, 2020

        Her voice is still great when it’s in great form.

  15. Gigi August 19, 2020

    Yeahhhhh, get into it!
