Carey has described the song as having a message that works perfectly for the film. She says, “It’s a feel-good record; it gives you the feeling of reaching your home and being with people that you love.”

Carey has sold an impressive 200 million albums up until now, and has eighteen Billboard #1 singles to her credit. Of those eighteen, she was the sole writer of seventeen of them. She has also won five GRAMMY awards and has also been honored with the Billboard Artist of the Decade Award, just to name a few of her great accomplishments.

As soon as the song is released for public consumption, Disney, Island Def Jam, and Mariah Carey will be working on a promotional campaign in support of her new song, its music video, and Disney’s Oz: The Great and Powerful.
