Mariah Carey also dropped a note for this new song “The fact that I believe I could become a successful artist is one of my greatest strengths. Around the same time, my mother entered me in a talent competition in the city and I sang one of my favorite songs: ‘Out Here On My Own’ by Irene Cara. I felt ‘Out Here On My Own’ described my entire life, and I loved singing that way – singing to reveal a piece of my soul,” she wrote. “And I won doing it. At that age, I lived for the movie Fame, and Irene Cara was everything to me.”
