After Mariah Carey announced Wednesday that she’d completed her memoir, we now have more details on the book.
Titled The Meaning of Mariah Carey, it’s now available for pre-order ahead of a September 29, 2020 release.
The singer documents her journey to success while tackling issues such as race, identity, class, childhood and family trauma. According to a press release, the book will detail Mariah’s “battles with gender and power dynamics, emotional abuse, public embarrassments, personal failures and phenomenal victories” — all told in her own words.
“This book is composed of my memories, my mishaps, my struggles, my survival and my songs,” Mariah shared in a letter on social media Wednesday. “Unfiltered. I went deep inside 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 and triumphant woman I became tell her side.”
Audible will also release an exclusive audiobook performed by Mariah, which will be interwoven with special musical components.
