Mariah Carey is showing the world just how patriotic she can be. Yesterday the “One Sweet Day” singer posted photos of herself all dolled up at a polling station as she cast her vote for the next U.S. president. Today Mariah has released “Bring It On Home,” an inspirational song celebrating Obama’s reelection.
Mariah’s longtime producer, Jermaine Dupri, took to Twitter this morning to announce the release of the track. “NEW MARIAH CAREY SONG, SHE WROTE FOR OBAMA,BTW THIS IS THE REAL VERSION,” he wrote.
“Bring It On Home” is a throwback to Mariah’s sound from the 90’s, as she is backed up by a choir while she belts out the song’s lyrics:
“So bring it on home/You can bring it home/Bring it on home/I know we gon’ bring it home.”
Mariah first performed the song at a fundraiser for Obama during the summer.
