‘Butterfly’ beauty Mariah Carey may be flying high on charts with her Miguel-assisted hit ‘#Beautiful’, but lambs following the pop icon on Twitter were dealt a disappointing announcement moments ago regarding its parent album.
Christened ‘The Art of Letting Go’, the album was believed to be “all systems go” for a July 23rd release date. That, according to Carey herself, has apparently changed…
While we await news on the album’s newest release date, we can’t help but admit we saw this coming. Even with ‘#Beautiful’ performing as well as it is on charts, the buzz surrounding the track is quickly fizzling.
With the ‘American Idol‘ platform in her rearview as a launching pad for new material, here’s hoping the single’s follow-up – as well as the new additions to the album from Urban music’s top craftsmen and working the award show circuit (see: BET Awards, MTV VMA) – regenerate much deserved interest in the project.
However, as we are anxious to hear what Carey’s cooking up, we’re hoping she doesn’t follow J.Lo’s lead by pushing the album back all the way to the fall.
