According to Jermaine Dupri, Mariah Carey will indeed be showing the masses ‘The Art Of Letting Go’ on her 14th studio album (due July 23rd). However, by the look of these new snaps, the singer seems equally keen to showcase the art of her body.
Taking to Twitter, the 43-year-old mother of two posted the suggestive collage above with the following message…

Oh Mimi and this forced sex-appeal. On the one hand, if you’ve got it flaunt it. And to a degree, she does still (have “it”). However, for yours truly, Mariah has always has always evoked “timeless classy” more than she has “sexy”. Hence, why she’s spent more than a decade trying to push the latter is beyond me. She need not look further than Jennifer Lopez (who is exactly the same age) to see how to both preserve and mature one’s sexy over time. For, in not pushing her puppies in anyone’s face ala Mimi, La Lopez has retained both her “cool” and stunner status.
Little is known about this shoot beyond the fact that it took place in Capri, Italy last night and R&B crooner Miguel features. Mariah and the airborne singer continue to enjoy great success on the Billboard Hot 100 with their hit ‘#Beautiful’ – which begs the question of whether the filming was for a sequel of sorts? Or perhaps the ‘Adorn’ crooner is simply making a cameo in Mimi’s next video? Who knows.
What is certain is that more pics await after the jump…
