‘Mariah En Español’ Is The Songbird’s First EP To Be Filled With Spanish Versions Of Her Hits
Thirty years have passed since songbird supreme Mariah Carey first released her self-titled debut album. The album, which at the time topped the Billboard 200 album chart for 11 consecutive weeks was certified nine-times platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America and sold nine million copies in the United States alone. Five beloved singles came from Mariah Carey including “Vision of Love,” “Love Takes Time” and “Someday.”
In celebration of the debut album, Carey is releasing multiple new EPs, including one in Spanish!
Since July, as part of her celebrations, Carey has been dropping rare EPs and old live recordings every Friday.
Since July, Carey has announced the release of her memoir ‘The Meaning Of Mariah Carey’, due September 29, and revealed she’s releasing even more music admitting the process of writing has been “incredibly hard, humbling and healing.”
“Though there have been countless stories about me throughout my career and very public personal life, it’s been impossible to communicate the complexities and depths of my experience in any single magazine article or a ten-minute television interview,” Carey explained in a statement to her website about the book. “And even then, my words were filtered through someone else’s lens, largely satisfying someone else’s assignment to define me. This book is composed of my memories, my mishaps, my struggles, my survival and my songs. Unfiltered. I went deep into my childhood and gave the scared little girl inside of me a big voice. I let the abandoned and ambitious adolescent have her say, and the betrayed woman I became tell her side.”
A book and now a spanish EP!
Last Friday, the songbird dropped Mariah En Español, a seven-song EP that pays tribute to her Venezuelan roots. In it, fans get access to Spanish-language versions of her biggest ’90s hits. Mariah En Español includes “Mi Todo” and “Héroe.”
Carey sings Spanish for fans in this new album even though she doesn’t speak the language fluently.
Speaking about the ambitious undertaking Carey tweeted that “3 covers that I recorded for my original #1’s album and one with Spanish versions I recorded of Hero, Open Arms and My All!” and asked fans to “Please don’t judge my far-from-perfect pronunciation but I tried.”
