#NewMusic Mariah Carey - Save The Day

"Save the Day" is the first release from Mimi's double-disc archival deep dive The Rarities (Oct. 2), which comes hot on the heels of her memoir The Meaning of Mariah Carey (out Sept. 29).

With heartfelt, affecting vocals delivering a timely message ("We're in this together"; "it's curious, the fear still holding us down"), a few classic Mariah high notes and a sick beat drop courtesy Jermaine Dupri that accompanies the entrance of Ms. Lauryn Hill's voice (sampled from the Fugees' Grammy-winning "Killing Me Softly With His Song"), "Save the Day" is pure MC goodness.

"Save the Day" dates back to a 2011 studio session with Mariah Carey, Dupri and Randy Jackson, but it wasn't finished until recently when Carey and Dupri separately realized how fitting the song's lyrics were for the world right now. "It happened organically that the lyrics are so apropos to this exact moment," Carey said, with Zoom guest Dupri adding, "To me this is a Mariah Carey record from her heart."
