Mariah Carey showed off her iconic voice on social media during a casual joyride Thursday night (Sept. 10).
“These days, even a car ride is uncommon but we made the most of it!” the superstar captioned the video, which features her riding along in the passenger seat as boyfriend Bryan Tanaka drives, casually hitting the whistle notes while singing along to her latest single “Save The Day.”
“If he won’t/ And she won’t/ Gonna have to learn to save the day,” she crooned, nailing the studio version’s ad libs before excitedly declaring, “This my part!” and jumping into her lower register.
“Save The Day” serves as the lead single for Mimi’s upcoming album of deep cuts and previously-unreleased tracks, The Rarities, which she’s taking out of the vault and releasing to her Lambs on Oct. 2, just days after her first-ever memoir, The Meaning of Mariah Carey, hits shelves on Sept. 29.
Earlier this week, Carey kicked off Season 2 of Billboard’s Quizzed series by putting her knowledge of Mean Girls to the test with none other than Tina Fey. After getting every single trivia question thrown her way about the classic 2004 teen flick correct, Fey declared the superstar the “Michael Jordan of Mean Girls.” (She even knew the name of minor character Jason, who famously dismissed by Regina George to “go shave your back now” and clocked her own tour poster from 1999’s Rainbow in Damian’s bedroom in the film.)
