Mariah Carey’s rumored new boo on the block Bryan Tanaka is absolutely smitten with her and he’s dishing details on how it all came about.
E! News caught up with the longtime dancer for Carey and he didn’t hold a single detail back on his infatuation with the “We Belong Together” singer. Beginning with his top three songs from Mimi, he explained that the Bone Thugs-N-Harmony-assisted “Breakdown,” “Fantasy” and “Honey” are his favorites. He added that “Honey” was also his favorite visual from her scroll of R&B classics.
Gushing over their first encounter, Tanaka explained that when he and Carey first met, it was at none other than an L.A. Sony studio soundstage.
“She walked in with a beautiful entourage and I was on stage already,” he recalled. “And our first introduction was kind of a sweaty mess because I was on stage sweating and she came out all looking gorgeous and everything.”
He said they exchanged quick greetings and got back to work right after. Little did Tanaka know, that first exchange would develop into much more than just an introduction, as recent photos have shown the two bae-cationing in Hawaii.
Watch his recollection of his first time meeting Mimi in the video below.
