Mariah Carey‘s music may not be rocking the singles charts of late, however the premium diva is still banking on her album pulling power.
The 43-year-old’s fourteenth studio LP heads to stores on May 6th, and though preceded by a slew of singles – little had been divulged about the project as a body of work. That is until now.
Ms. Carey-Cannon stopped by New York’s 95.5 WPLJ, where she lifted the lid on interesting details about the newly untitled LP.
(Sidenote: According to Mimi, the album is no longer named ‘The Art Of Letting Go’ due to the leak of the title to the press. Of course, it’s nothing to do with the single of the same name tanking. We digress…)
Revealed during the singer’s candid chat with host Ralphie Aversa was info on collaborators, the project’s recording process, newly recorded songs, and much more.
The tea awaits after the jump…
We’re still excited for Mariah’s album – musically. Regardless of what the charts are saying. For, ‘#Beautiful’ and ‘You’re Mine’ are two of her best releases in years.
This is a business. Hence, there is something very alarming about the fact that so few people are willing to part with $0.99 for a Mimi single so close to a time when they’ll be expected to part with ten times that amount for the album.
Team Mimi have two months and some change to mop up the mess. Hopefully, they succeed, because the album – as reflected by some of its singles as well as her words in this interview – seems to be shaping up well.
