"The Crave Song" was originally written for the "Daydream" album. It is unknown who Mariah wrote or produced it with. Mariah teased about the song in interviews, only calling it "The Crave Song" and mentioning that it was full of innuendo. Her manner of speaking showed a side of her that had never been seen before. However, she also mentioned that she would never release the track. Mariah used to have a record label named Crave, but there is no evidence to suggest that the song and the record label are related.
On September 27, 2020, Mariah revealed that she recorded a secret rock album called "Someone's Ugly Daughter" while recording her hit studio album, Daydream. The lines "I crave you" can be heard in the song "Demented" which prompted fans to believe that it was "The Crave Song."

Crave Song was reveled as an unreleased song in "The Billboard Book of Number One Hits" from 2003:
|“||“Less than a year after ‘Always Be My Baby’ hit number one, Carey was back on the Hot 100 - not as an artist, but as the head of her own label, Crave…. As for the name of the label, Carey isn’t ready to reveal it’s true origin. “It came from a song I wrote that no one’s ever heard. It’s a secret. One day I’ll talk about it.”||”|
