Mariah Carey, a staunch supporter of President Obama, has just released a song in his honor titled Bring It On Home for our listening pleasure. It’s unknown if this song will be featured on her upcoming album or not (tho, my guess is that it will) but she has performed the song live at an Obama campaign rally before. Having given the song a few listens, I can say that I’m really glad that she is sharing the song with the rest of us now. It’s an upbeat song full of hope with that classic Mimi sound. Click below to give it a listen, see what you think.
Mariah Carey capped a happy night of watching President Barack Obama secure a second term by releasing a celebratory song, called “Bring It On Home.” Premiering on Global14.com, producer Jermaine Dupri’s website, Carey first performed the slow jam track at a campaign event earlier this year. “We just everyday people trying to make it through the pain,” she sings in the song’s lone verse. “Yet we intentionally hurt each other playing silly games. But when it comes down to win or lose, don’t give up the fight. Strength is what we need, and love can save our lives.” She cautions, “So when you’re down and frustrated let em all keep debating because we gonna win.” The rest of the song is a series of gospel-tinged chants of declarations like “I know we can bring it home!” and “Bring it, bring it, bring it,” and at one point (02:25) Carey breaks out her trademark high-pitched whistle.
The song is dope, I really love it. Mimi was in a great mood last night after President Obama got reelected and she couldn’t contain herself on Twitter:
Carey reveled in Obama’s victory in a series of tweets throughout Tuesday night. Earlier, she posted several photos showing her at her polling place. “Congratulations to our beloved President Barack Obama, our spectacular First Lady Michelle Obama & the adorable Malia & Sasha,” she wrote. “We love you!” After watching Obama’s acceptance speech well past midnight, she offered this review: “INCREDIBLE SPEECH!!!!!! Watching in a room full of diverse people-all truly moved. Thank you America for President Obama-4more yrs.”
I’m happy, too, Mimi … yes I am. I’m happy that you gave us this beautiful song and I’m happy that Obama will be our president for the next four years. Happy Day all around :D Are you happy with this track? Do you dig it?
