Mariah Carey loves a good unboxing. And when the parcel contains the first shipment of her #MC30 vinyl re-releases, all the better. “Just got the first batch of my #MC30 vinyl releases & decided to give you a full review!” the singer says alongside a video posted on Tuesday (Nov. 24) in which, as advertised, she opens up the box featuring vinyl remasters of such beloved albums as Emotions, Daydream, Music Box, Butterfly, Rainbow and more.
“The first batch of my vinyls are out now!” she says in the clip as a stack of LPs rest on her lap. “And I’m excited! Because it’s just great to have vinyl, I’m glad that it’s a thing again.” The screen then splits to eight boxes, in which Mariah holds up one of eight iconic albums to the camera and slips out the different-colored vinyl in each.
She gushes about the colorful David LaChapelle cover shot from Rainbow and then oohs and aahs over the lime green disc in the Daydream sleeve that matches the little black dress she wears on the album’s back cover as part of the year-long celebration of her three decades of hits.
