New Song: Mariah Carey – ‘Out Here On My Own’

Published: Friday 18th Sep 2020 by Ryan

Mariah Carey has unveiled the latest treat from her upcoming ‘The Rartites’ (due out October 2) album, the delectable ‘Out Here On My Own.’ 

The track was originally performed by Irene Cara in the 1980 movie musical ‘Fame.’ Mimi later recorded her version of the song back in 2000, where it was left to gather dust until now.

The Songbird Supreme sings on the first verse:

“Sometimes I wonder where I’ve been, who I am, do I fit in? / Make believin’ is hard alone, out here on my own.” 

The ballad, of course, showcases her full multi-octave-spanning vocal range.

    I completely understand how these rare gems she’s chose will truly reflect her in the memoir and my God she sounds so beautiful here. Definitely would’ve been a hit had she released this around her Charmbracelet Era 🙏🏽🖤💯💯

      This sounds older than the Charmbracelet era.

    Bring this Mariah back and keep the keep the hip hop features limited to the remixes.

    Exactly 40 years ago, Irene Cara was climbing to #19 with Out Here on My Own in autumn of 1980. Mariah Carey does it justice in 2020 🤍💙🖤.
