Just when you thought Mariah Carey couldn’t get any more iconic, she recently revealed on Twitter that back in 1995 – she secretly recorded a grunge rock album at the same time she was recording her chart-breaking RnB-pop album Daydream.

The pop legend posted up an excerpt from her newly-released memoir, ‘The Meaning Of Mariah Carey’, which revealed her work with the band, Chick and their sole album Someone’s Ugly Daughter in 1995.

“I’d bring my little alt-rock song to the band and hum a silly guitar riff. They would pick it up and we would record it immediately. It was irreverent, raw, and urgent, and the band got into it… I actually started to love some of the songs. I would fully commit to my character,” she noted.

Carey also provided a short snippet of music from that time with her vocals as a hidden layer, while shouting out a friend named Clarissa, who is Chick’s lead vocalist whom she harmonised with.

While the album, unfortunately, isn’t available to stream, a few of its songs, including one called ‘Demented’ mentioned by Carey, have made their way onto YouTube. In a follow-up tweet on Monday, Carey said she’s now on “a quest to unearth the version of this album with my lead vocals and will not stop until we find it.”

We can’t wait ’til Carey finds it ’cause frankly, there’s only so many times one can listen to ‘All I Want For Christmas’ before something like this happens…
