Unlike in recent years years, Mariah Carey has been fairly active lately, and it’s thanks in large part to her newly released memoir, The Meaning of Mariah Carey. Her press run for the new book has cleared up a number of rumors, some of which include whether her songs “My All” and “The Roof” were about her relationship with Major League Baseball star Derek Jeter and the recording and release of a 1995 grunge album entitled Someone’s Ugly Daughter. Fresh off topping the New York Times best-seller list with the memoir, Carey has fans seething with excitement for yet another reason.
Friday afternoon, the singer posted a picture of three directors chairs on Twitter, each featuring a set of initials: M.C., A.G., J.H. Above it was Christmas emoji. After the post, people quickly speculated that the initials stood for Carey herself, Ariana Grande, Jennifer Hudson, and that the picture could result in a new Christmas track with the three singers on it. As a result, people took to Twitter to share their reactions to the potential track.
