Carey first announced the album back in June to celebrate the 30th anniversary of her debut album, Mariah Carey. Furthermore, Carey views this upcoming album as a celebration of her achievements in the music career and a platform to “educate, inform and invoke change” as she wrote on her Instagram. She had intended to release the album at an earlier date but decided to postpone the release in light of the Black Lives Matter movement and social injustices taking place right now.
