As “new singles” go, Mariah Carey is no stranger. Indeed, since the Summer of 2012 the diva has been trying in vain to gain traction on a succession of songs to usher in the release of her fourteenth studio album.
And with the latest, ‘The Art Of Letting Go’, falling flat upon its arrival back in November, it appears Mimi has once again gone back to the drawing board.
Details on the debut of her newest material after the jump…
Speaking during her set on New Year’s Eve With Carson Daly this week, the mother of two revealed that her as-yet-untitled new single will impact on Valentines Day (February 14th), while its parent album is scheduled for a “Spring 2014” roll-out.
The cut follows a slew of previous efforts including ‘Triumphant’ (2012) and ‘Beautiful (ft. Miguel)’ (2013).
Given the caliber of Mariah’s name and talent, we’re still predisposed to being excited about news of new music – despite her many mishaps.
That said, if being anything more than a catalogue act is on her agenda, it’s imperative that her next move is a major one. No more spoken word poems ala ‘Letting Go’, or minimalist nursery rhymes such as ‘Touch My Body’ and ‘Obsessed’. Something, anything, from the school of ‘We Belong Together’, ‘Don’t Forget About Us’, and ‘Beautiful’ is just what the comeback doctor ordered. Qualitative cuts that satisfy radio, critics, and fans in unison.
Mess! She’s already built her legacy and she’s already a legend idk why she keeps trying!
She should just retire instead of making garbage music
She better lose weight first before dropping the album tbh. Can’t wait for the album tho. I’m pretty sure Mariah’s new album is way better than Thiefyonce’s trash album.
Mariah already been there done that! She’s trying to hard! Girl just let it go and don’t ruin your legacy
You had a phenomenal career in the 90’s that all those basic girls which they had!
@Queen Of Shade she isn’t releasing music for the charts. When you have left a legacy like hers,you just release material for your FANS. Prince just released Breakfast can Wait FOR HIS FANS. Bon Jovi still go on tour FOR THEIR FANS. Please know your facts before you speak
Anyway,I can’t wait. Sounds pretty promising. Was just listening to the Slay of Letting Go. I’m ready Mimi
FLOP! Even Mariah knows her stuff gonna flop. She payed all her songs dust & dont give 2 cents about performances anymore. Her voice sounds horrible live & she just gave up on losing wieght. Bye Mimi
You already sold 250,000,000+ records. You already done everything there is to do as a R&B singer/songwriter. Just become a behind the scenes person & help Ariana Grande/young girls create music that actually sounds good.
The problem is Mimi lost her voice & youthfullness. Her ability to create melodies & lyrics are better than ever. She can still make songs for others to sing. But she is just not into being a full time pop star anymore.
You are a legend but you are not MADONNA just retire Mariah…
Madonna is the only LEGEND that can still release songs/albums go platinum & have a 100+ million dollar tour.
Madonna outlasted all her compitition.
Madonna>>>> MJ, WH, MC, CD, & all other legends!
Anyways, Mimi just retire you already sold 250+ records time to sit down & enjoy your hard work for the past 20+ years …
Here is an idea Mariah. How bout you just release a final album of all your unreleased material that no one has ever herd. Mimi has over 25 songs that we have never herd including 12 just from her first album. Also, demo tapes & rough drafts from very well known songs. I would love to hear that.
Her new album will be checked for regardless tho. Now whether people buy it will be another story.
Fake, fat, narcissistic and immature. What’s with all the s*** image she trying to exude? At 40+ yrs old with over two decades in the music industry, countless hits and accolades what the f*** you still tryna prove to the world? She never comes off as a real person one can relate to. Always on her high horse in her fairy tale castle with her imaginary prince charming. Just release the damn music and be done with it. You’re way past your prime and have built a legacy for yourself to be trying all this extra hard the way new artists are supposed to behave.
No one gives a f*** about her corny ass music lol
Who gives. S*** will flop.
She needs to go back to her 90s sound and stop trying to be so youthful. Fail.
I love you Mariah, but not the recent you whatsoever. BTW way to waste you Idol run too.
Like Britney, Mariah too has nothing to prove. She is a living legend and no amount of “flopping” will change that.. The trolls must SAVE IT!!!!
Hahaha people crack me up! You guys act like Mariah Carey hasn’t had a hit on the charts in like 10 years. Correct me if I’m wrong, but didn’t “#Beautiful” come out like 6 months ago? Once again, correct me if I’m wrong, but didn’t that song sell over a million units and go PLATINUM? Didn’t that song practically go top 10 on Billboard? Didn’t that song go to #1 on iTunes in over 40 countries around the world? The answer to all four of those questions is YES! So anyone trying to come for Mariah like she doesn’t sell anything anymore needs to go check your facts cause clearly you’re WRONG!
The only “mishap” that I felt that Mariah’s done lately was putting “The Art of Letting Go” out there and trying to launch that as a single (while it really is a great song, both lyrically and vocally, it’s better as an album track and not a lead single). And either way, that song was never even sent to radio nor was their ever a video even shot for it so I hardly even categorize that as a “single” by nature.
Ya’ll act like this chick doesn’t have 24 years of experience in this game and how it’s done hahaha. There’s a reason why she’s been in it for decades and holds more titles than all your faves! Get’em Mariah!
Can’t wait for the queen to slay us 😉
its refreshing to see the HIVE supporting Mariah. This is how we should always be people. Mariah Carey is a living legend and she should continue to make music if that is what she wants to do. I love Mariah even in her bad moments. One thing is for certain, she will give you an album with good music. Even if it does not sell like her old albums, the music will be good.
Cant wait, Love my Mimi!
I like Mariah,however this whole “S** Symbol” image she has been going for has ran its course…Like since the Butterfly era
Stop playing and give us some new music! She acts like she is scared to flop or something.
If it flops so what,Mariah has nothing else to prove at this point.
I’ll say it once and I’ll say it again
Celine,Madonna,Mariah,Britney,Beyonce/Destiny’s Child,Pink,and Christina Aguilera have absolutely nothing to prove at this point..their longevity alone<
DAMN! Why are u guys draggggging Flopiah Tour de Flop Savior like a farmer ready for his bacon. It isn’t her fault she looks like a fat bad built tellie tubbie hereee Pigiah Pigiah barn animal. Moofausa honey child. Why are u releasing anything on Valentine’s. Valentine Day means Love. America do not love u like that anymore. I guess we can call it FLOPTINE DAY if MooMoo record does come out that day. I can’t wait till that Silly Bum B**** @Flopiah gets here. And tells me how my fav don’t have any diamond albums and blah blah. Change ur s*** up b****. The same ol tired record sales lmao. Just like ur tired ass fav.
U Better preach and spill that true T and facts #SheWon #Lambily
First of all sweetheart get your FACTS straight cause I’m not speaking I’m typing you uneducated fool!
Second of all I love mariah and I have a few of her albums….with that being said if Ms.carey
Was making music for the fans why is she wasting her time getting naked in her music videos when
She has such an amazing voice but yet she strip off in her music video grinding on a motorcycle obviously she wants
Attention if she was making music for the fans why do all those gimmicks for she’s already a legend like I stated on my past comment she doesn’t need to do anything but apparently she’s too focus making messy charts music perfect example triumphant,obsessed leave the gimmicks to the basics..
Another single, Mimi gurl, she better makes sure to have that #1 song on the billboard hot 100 like Tommy did with almost all her singles.
I can´t wait!!!
I know for a fact the album will be amazing as a whole. She put so much effort this time. Whether it brings hit singles or not, the album will be good. There are some great albums out there which have not one single song that can be sent to radio and charts cos of nowadays lack of diversity and low standards, but they are still great as a whole body of work. Hell, ask Beyonce, she can´t make it happen with her singles anymore, since like 2008, but her last two albums are probably her best.
Wait when did the Hive and Lambs start beefing?? Kiii. Happy new year everyone!!!
mariahs gotten plenty of #1s without Tommy even after they divorced and same tried it with beautiful! just know that Mariah kept yall on yall toes without releasing original music.she had her babies and straight up chilled. this is her first original album this decade she just wants it to be perfect I rather her do whatever tweaks then just rushing it out because of haters that want to hear it so bad. the critics loved beautiful and the art of letting go. I believe this album is going to be great being that she took years of working on it and she said she just added 3 more new songs to the album…..she still working on it #nuffsaid
before I blinked I thought it was a circus Hippo in a glits and glamour dress
having 2 albums sell around 30+ million in your t*** years doesn’t make you a Legend.
Britney is a Zombie and a current flop 130k byeeeeee!
that s*** slayriah carey always tries it with the Hive, so his/her Mahindra jawline built rectanglar shaped whispering fave shall be dragged for the sins of #Triumphant
Dumb b****. Beautiful wasn’t the first time Mariah was trying to be s***. She’s been s*** ever since she stopped being Tommy’s puppet. Once you’ve established a classy s** image to your name,it isn’t considered a gimmick anymore you imbecile. Stupid w****
gonna flop as TAOLG , JLO IS COMIN BACK WITH A NEW SINGLE #SAMEGIRL A HUGE HIT
I too don’t like the talk-sing style that’s referred to as “spoken word poems” in the write up, but I don’t agree that “We Belong Together” is anything different than more talk singing. Of all Mariah’s single attempts so far, I think “…Letting Go” is the best because the chorus parts sound like classic Mariah.
beyhive Minaj seems like the only sane beyhive member I’ve come across
I’m so excited about Mariah’s new music. The queen is back.
Honestly though … Touch My Body, Obsessed >>>> #beautiful, Triumphant, The art of Letting Go.
B**** Bye! No one’s here for it!
Where is Hagriah?? She makes it to EVERY Beyonce post, but is M.I.A. on her faves post! kii
This boring s*** will flop anyway *Exits*
“since the Summer of 2012 the diva has been trying in vain to gain traction on a succession of songs to usher in the release of her fourteenth studio album.”
LOL The Shade 😉
The hive stays bothered. lol Mariah 54 million Us albums sales…. Best selling female since Soundscan.
And there she goes talking about “Sales”
Im over it! kiii
@slay hive,we’ve never interacted before,partly due to massive difference in IQ levels but you need to master the art of gathering some type of intelligence before typing,especially in mariah posts
The only song mariah has released promoting this album was #Beautiful, back then the album was supposed to drop and she wasnt ready. The song did really good, we all know the “Art of letting go” was NOT a real single and it clearly did nothing!!!
Mariah is one of those real rare talents, at the end of the day she will always suceed, like she always does!!
i support real talent!!!!
IQ levels and intelligence? It doesn’t take much intelligence to realize that mariah is a has been, and she will never accomplish what she did fifty years ago!
Seethe at the truth, while I’m unbothered, in my last two years of college. Pre- Nursing student! 😉
I don’t need or care for your “pressed” critique of my character! Have several!
Death at Dossome dragging that unwanted creature. Stay off Mimi’s post you bad built recycling weave ass BXTCH.
Death @ you cosigning! weak b****!
The bxtch was put in her place. Don’t expect for her to reply 😉
“bad built recycling weave ass BXTCH.”
Try again that was wack! kiii
Bad built would be you, your mother, AND your box shaped fave! kiii
And there she goes talking about “Sales”
Im over it! kiii”
You insist on talking about those Grammys so why can’t I talk about the queens groundbreaking album sales. You are seething because bey can’t see half those numbers
You people saying Mariah is trying too hard and that she should just retire, well maybe you are speaking of somebody who doesn’t view music as their passion. Of somebody that’s just in it for the money. Of somebody who’s going through the motions and just releasing things because a record label says so. Mariah is none of the above. Why fault her for music being her passion and wanting to constantly release music to her fans? So what if they’re not the hits she once had, so what! The one thing with Mariah though, you can never count her out. Mark my words, she will have at least one more big hit on her career.
Whos checking for this mess? ugh.
LOL When was the last time i said anything about a grammy?? #LIES
I don’t have to speak on grammys EVERYDAY! kiii
Beyonce is experiencing success in this decade, I’m unbothered 😉
Cling to thos ANCIENT receipts, which you will do anyway! smh
“@slay hive,we’ve never interacted before,partly due to massive difference in IQ levels but you need to master the art of gathering some type of intelligence before typing,especially in mariah posts”
Chile if he “thinks” my IQ level and intelligence is subpar!
He probably thinks you have the intelligence of a new born puppy! dumb ratchet b****! smh
wow, the level of hate that slay_hive displays is beyond reachable in my eyes. How does one feel the need to be nasty in any post about anyone that is not Beyonce? (rhetorical question)
I am sure he or she will respond by calling me whatever comes to mind, but know that your words do not affect me. Your words only show what kind of person you really are. Thats your problem not mine.
You could respond and tell me why you feel the need to comment in Mariah’s post. I mean you are always saying you do not care for her, but you always have something nasty say about her. To me, it seems as though you may have some short comings in life, and being behind the computer, coming up with the most disrespectful things to say, actually make you feel better as a person. I am guessing this, because I do not know you personally. Either way, I am really praying for you. You seem to be very sad and that is okay. Just know someone cares
“he level of hate that slay_hive displays is beyond reachable in my eyes.”
Obviously I’m talking to myself!
Obviously I’m the only one to shade other artists!
I bet you if I take the “Hive” out of my name. Majority of these people would be less offended! lol smh
Can this person please stay off queen Mariah’s posts?? Ugh!
Can you stay off of Beyonce’s post?? kii
I’ll answer that for you! HELL NO
Slay_Hive i am not saying you are the only one, but I am not speaking of everyone else. I am speaking of your comments because your comments stand out to me. You come very hard and very dark with your comments. That makes me want to pray for you, and I really did. I am not like these others that will try and shade you. I am just seeing someone who may need a little love thrown their way. It may be offensive to read but I can not hep but wish the best for you. I have never seen such nasty things written about people, the way I have seen your comments written.
I am team people and wish you well and will continue to pray for your happiness. I mean this with all my heart, be BLESSED. Try not saying anything negative and try for once to be positive.
Well slay doesn’t speak for all beyhive members. Beyonce and Mariah fans usually get along … Mariah has had a stellar ground breaking career and we would love to see beyonce at that status in a couple years …. #teambeyonce #teamMariah #teamgreatness
being in college doesn’t prove anything if common sense evades you like plague..I would love to go back and forth with you but the thought of having to teach a pre-nursing lab specimen on how to use the simplest part of the human brain scares the s*** out of me 😉
I’m sure it was be a snooze-fest like her last few albums.
Three words: Pop Ya Collar. Before Usher’s 2001 smash album 8701, he floated Pop Ya Collar as a single, but it went nowhere. He retooled the whole album and ended up with a smash.
Usher also put out a few tester singles that preceded his Raymond v. Raymond album. The album didn’t launch he released OMG, b/c pop radio wouldn’t play r&b tracks that year (more like a 5 yr span . . .).
Mariah is doing what career artists do. She’s testing the market to find out what will work for her. It’s better to get a little humiliation in the short run with a couple of underperforming singles than to waste millions in the longer run promoting an unsuccessful album.
These shitards haven’t even heard the single, yet their hating. Lol.. This album will be amazing. They are threatened? JLo? U failed with that name alone.. When was her last gold album? Nvm….. Beyonce’s fans are shouting about success, let’s see how her singles do…. Let’s see if all of this hype in how shes released this album gets it to five million units in the US.. There are no excuses.. Beyonce has sold what she has, due to how she’s released her album. Don’t be fooled.. Mariah’s album sales don’t make her Iconic, her classic music does. But the sales are the icing on the cake.. Mariah is a very beautiful woman.. The FleaHive are only hating because, they stay failing & flopping. They are insecure imbeciles.. “Beautiful” was the only single that she released, and that went platinum. Go figure haters..
Also Sam dont act as of “TAOLG” was a single because it wasn’t. It was a fb release.. It wasn’t sent to radio nor was there a video for it..
Aw look at you getting all hot and bother lol judging by your reasponse I must assume your IQ level is really low lol
And secondly I know when mariah carey when throught that classy s*** phase with butterfly how iconic that music
Video for honey because of that scene In the pool I actually bought that album in 1998 a year after it came out so I been following mariah’s career for a long time but judging from your vocabulary and your ignorance you must be like 12…however her continuous attempt at being s*** with rainbow and glitter it didn’t work like I stated in my
Past comments she doenst need those gimmicks that didn’t work for her in rainbow or Glitter because she has An amazing voice and talent and going back to my first comment if she’s gonna keep releasing that kind of music where she’s trying too hard at being s*** she’s only ruining her legacy and obviously she’s is making music for the charts if she was making music for the fans she wouldn’t be putting those gimmicks cause they are and only focus on her voice, and with that being said I have the right to my opinion, your responds just showcases how childish and immature you are.
U can be classy & s***.. Being s*** has nothing to do with your musical output. “Beautiful” is one of the best songs released recently. It’s quality material.. Also “Glitter” had amazing music on it, it was released during a bad space. “Rainbow” sold three million copies, that is a success..
say what you want but Mariah is the force.
I am a Mariah Carey fan. She has been sounding really good lately. I am excited to hear what she has in store. She always does something that gets good sales and publicist. I can appreciate the comments of Mariah Carey already has a legacy, which is true, but it is not right to go as far to say that her music is garbage. Mariah Carey’s music is clearly not garbage because she still sells millions of copies of singles and albums.
NO ONE’S CHECKING FOR OLD MAN ELDGAR’S HOG. #SORRY LAMES
She’s not fat. But the rest I agree with. She does the most, she comes off very very immature for her age. Any who she just needs to work on those vocals and stop playing around trying to be this s** kitten she portrayed but never and will never be. Just sing like you used to, cut the b******* out Mariah, your a legend so act like one.
@Tasha mack b**** did you just really try to come for a legend like mariah? if nobody give a f*** about her so called ‘corny” ass music then she wouldn’t have 200 million albums of her “corny” music sold. bye.
Congrats Mariah. Cant wait.
Yet you have ALL this free time to comment on a blog about an artist you don’t like? Boy, I hope I’m never a patient of yours…..#goreadyourtextbook
The Art of Letting Go of Body.
The Art Of Where Did My Voice Go.
I hate when people think Queenriah can’t sing anymore and should be retire. Mariah maybe can’t sing as she used to but still million miles better than your faves. Correct me If I’m wrong, her recent live performances such as New year’s eve performances (medley, TAOLT), duet w/ Michael buble etc. is enough proof that the Queen still have it! No one can bit! QUEEN since 1990!
Mariah carey will FLOP on valentines day.
Mariah im ready when you are bytch!
PLEASE NO MORE PUSH BACKS HUNTEE!!!
Like all of Rihanna’s albums, LOOOOOOL.. Don’t shyt yourself..
@DiggerBey sit your mildly disturbed a** down..
All of the queens albums are platnium. Platnium is flopping now? Logic?
