Despite husband Nick Cannon jokingly suggesting that reality talent show titan ‘American Idol’ would not be able to “afford Mariah Carey“, it appears the show’s executives are looking to prove otherwise…
After teasing fans with a Summer return, Mariah Carey has held true to her word by announcing her comeback single ‘Triumphant’. And this time, she’s enlisted some help.

In the space of three short weeks, singer Frank Ocean has been catapulted from an underground star on the rise to a relative house-hold name. And while the New Orleans native’s uncanny ability as a songwriter shouldn’t be downplayed, it would be almost criminal to not attribute much of that “hype” to his “coming out” letter.
