Mariah Carey is busy writing and recording new music and finishing up her forthcoming memoir while in lockdown in New York.

The Obsessed hitmaker spoke with British Vogue for their August 2020 issue, where she revealed she was isolating in the Big Apple “with my children and a few friends,” as she detailed her days amid the Covid-19 crisis.

“We’ve been spending the days doing little ‘at home’ live concerts to help those in need, and I’ve also been busy writing songs, working on new material, finishing up my memoir, and listening to Club Quarantine after dark,” she shared.

The star went on to detail “the most challenging part of isolation,” admitting “keeping my spirits up and making sure my kids are happy and thriving” have been her main priorities.

She also confessed the pandemic has taught her “how important it is to take the time to tell your loved ones how much you care about them because tomorrow is not promised”.

During the lockdown, Mariah has appeared on various telethons and livestream benefits, performing hits including Hero, Make It Happen, and Through The Rain.

She’s also been the subject of various fan campaigns, which saw her albums Charmbracelet and E=MC2 peak on the Global iTunes Chart.
