Listen to 'Loverboy' and more

October 2, 2020

Mariah Carey just debuted a brand new collection of tracks she’s referring to as The Rarities, making sure that even her unreleased gems have their chance to Glitter.

The Rarities features fifteen tracks, most of which didn’t make the final cut onto her studio albums with a bonus disc including seventeen more packed with a few Live versions of your favorites.

And while all the songs sparkle in their own right, there was one song in particular we were all ears for, track number nine, "Loverboy." Which, as we previously reported, is the song that started all the dramz between Mimi and her very own Lord Voldemort, she who shall not be named, Miss Jennifer Lopez, otherwise known to Mariah as "I don’t know her." Look we come for the music, but stay for the drama, sorry - we can’t help it.

Okay, now back to the tune talk , the 15-track collection features a new song "Here We Go Around Again," which was originally recorded during sessions for Mariah’s self-titled 1990 debut. album, as well as the B-sides "Slipping Away" and "Everything Fades Away," and "Mesmerized" - a song that didn’t make it onto The Paperboy soundtrack. There's also the Lauryn Hill collab "Save the Day," which was released this past August.

The album’s bonus disc features live performances from Tokyo that were captured during the Daydream World Tour in March of 1996 including "Emotions," "Fantasy," "Always Be My Baby," "One Sweet Day," "Dreamlover," "Vision of Love," Hero" and our fa-la-la favorite "All I Want for Christmas Is You."

Clearly Mimi is in a giving mood and 'tis not even the season, first spilling all the tea with her high- anticipated memoir, The Meaning of Mariah Carey, released just this Tuesday, and now, with this compilation of “Rarities.”
