Unspoken Emotion is one of the fourteen tracks from Mariah's demo tape. The song was allegedly included on the tape which Brenda K. Starr handed to then head of Columbia Records, Tommy Mottola. In 2005, Mariah bought the rights to all of her songs from Sony and this is one of the songs she owns.[1] In 2014, an image of the demo tape's cover with this song's title was posted to Instagram.[2] In March of 2015 YouTube user "CellarDoor" posted a video which included the picture posted in 2014 and Mariah singing the demo version of "Vanishing" and "Someday."[3] The video also included a tweet of Mariah stating:

#nowplaying #Hyptonized (my teenage demo version)

In an interview with Genius in 2018, Mariah confirmed the validity of the video.[5][6]
