Mariah Carey returns with a brand new song titled “In the Mix.” The new track is actually for ABC’s upcoming series, Mixed-ish, which debuts on September 24th. The ABC series is a spinoff prequel to Black-ish, which follows Tracee Ellis Ross’ character, Rainbow Johnson, while she details growing up in the Eighties in a mixed-race family, as The Wrapreports.
“As a biracial woman in the entertainment industry, there was no way I did not want to be a part of Mixed-ish, especially after seeing the pilot, which I loved,” Carey said in a statement, per The Wrap. “I could not be more honored and proud to be writing and performing ‘In the Mix’ for [show creator] Kenya [Barris] and the show.”
In the music video for the song, Carey’s kids, Moroccan and Monroe, also make an appearance in the clip. “Oh, they keep trying, but they can’t stop us,” Mariah Carey sings over the bouncy melody and R&B grooves. “‘Cause we got a love that keeps rising up.”
“I could not be more honored and proud to be writing and performing ‘In the Mix’ for Kenya [Barris] and the show.” Mimi echoed the message and spread the good news with an equally grateful message on Instagram. “This is a dream come true,” she gushed.
