Watch: Mariah Carey Dishes On New Album

Published: Monday 24th Feb 2014 by Sam

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.

Your thoughts?

  4. 2 girls 1 cup February 24, 2014

    The day people stop acting like artist are some kind of god and stop shading every other artist that works to hard to get to where they at the world will become a better place lol…Its ok if artist has two or three flops so they can strive to do bigger and better things on the next album how’d you think mariah made a comeback with Emancipation,Madonna with Ray of light…but with that being said mariah should stop releasing single and just released the album as a whole…this recent singles have done nothing at all for her.

  5. Mimi Carey February 24, 2014

    BTW Samantha that little bitchh Ariana has a cocaine problem i see, why haven’t you reported on it?

  6. 2 girls 1 cup February 24, 2014

    Mariah girl you should just released the album as a whole stop with the singles theyre doing nothing for you…anyways if the album flops its ok she has nothing to prove with the being said good luck to her!

  7. Mimi Carey February 24, 2014

    @2Girls she doesn’t have nothing to prove shes already sold more records then any other bitchh in the game besides Madonna the fact that Mariah is still releasing music is amazing and she deserves respect for not being in her prime yet she’s still willing to go against artists of this new generation

  8. Mimi Carey February 24, 2014

    Yes i know Im going off right now but im mad because people always try and discredit her.

  9. Monster Gaga February 24, 2014

    with a lukewarm single….this will flop. 🙁

  10. NICKI IS QUEEN OTHER B****** TAKE A SEAT February 24, 2014

    Oh look the pressed hagriah stan can’t help but bring up the current queens of music. hagriah will flop and the lambchop excuse..” Mariah doesn’t have to prove anything she is a legend” and some more sales from the middle ages.. SAVE IT! Mariah is yesterdays success and today’s flop-hasbeen the lambchops will have to deal. #ComeAtMe #DelusionalHoes #pressed4life

  11. Common Sense February 24, 2014

    I just want to hear the album already! I hope she’s gone in a few new directions though. #Beautiful was fantastic, but You’re Mine felt like a step back into her comfort zone. I don’t care how well she sells as long as there’s quality music in it.

    Always a compliment and some subtle shade. “The Art of Letting Go” was not a single!! It was simply a personal track Mariah released for her fans. These was never going to be a video or a radio push.
    Unfortunately Mariah’s at the place in her 24 year career that she’s just not going to sell sell sell anymore. She’s achieved more than most and there is no reason to compare her to artists who were children or not even born when Vision Of Love hit. Patti LaBelle, Aretha, etc don’t sell albums anymore but that doesn’t make them any less great! The focus should be on quality music and so far the singles have delivered on that. #Beautiful went to #15 which is excellent! What other artist with a 20 plus year career can still nab Top 20 singles? And all the focus is on the US, “You’re Mine” has gone to #1 and Top 10 on many international iTunes Charts.

  14. Queen Bey February 24, 2014

    Bey remains unbothered by Grandmariah ….Lalalalalalaa

  15. Mimi Carey February 24, 2014

    @CommonSense i really dont think you’re mine is a bad song i love it tbh but i agree #beautiful was a much better single.

  16. Mimi Carey February 24, 2014

    Even if Mariah flops it doesn’t matter shes a legend who never flopped on her 2nd or 4th album like Nicki and Beyonce.

  23. Mimi Carey February 24, 2014

    @2Girls i agree with you but people are way to hard on Mariah but i shouldn’t take this site to seriously when most of them including the people who run this site stan for gimmicks like Nicki and Gaga.

  24. Mimi Carey February 24, 2014

    I don’t take Rosie serious either she stans for someone who is a worse vocalist then Katy Perry.

  25. NICKI IS QUEEN OTHER B****** TAKE A SEAT February 24, 2014

  26. Rosie February 24, 2014

    Flopriah Carey should leave Def Jam and join CiaraLessor Record Inc….


  27. Mimi Carey February 24, 2014

    Lana Beyonce and Nicki fans are jealous because those chicks aren’t known for talent more so gimmicks and basic dance routines.

  28. Mimi Carey February 24, 2014

    I don’t get how Nicki can have a single sell 7x platinum but her album couldn’t scan 2 million worldwide what a joke.

  29. NICKI IS QUEEN OTHER B****** TAKE A SEAT February 24, 2014

    And i don’t get how “Queen Mariah” can have a single in the top 20 but fall down to 400 the next day.. *scratches head*

  30. 2 girls 1 cup February 24, 2014

    @Nickyqueen really? you’re really gonna go there girl?? with a user name “nicki queen other bxtches take a seat” are you kidding me i mean that seems like someone with a mentality of a 10 year old my mistake maybe you’re 25 with a mentality of a 10 year old which is even worse lol and secondly my username its meant as a disgusting joke of a viral video that came out back in 2006…you don’t see me here shading every other artist to make my artist look better or calling artist by stupid name like flop this flop that queen this queen that but i guess that comes with maturity…so yea you can calmly have a seat

  36. NICKI IS QUEEN OTHER B****** TAKE A SEAT February 24, 2014

    ok.. some bixtches need to have seats and also your’e really gonna try to cover up you’re name like that? bye.. what could you possibly mean? what kind of b******* doh? i can’t stop laughing!

  37. DOSSOME February 24, 2014

    Your argument is invalid samantha.TEOM outsold ALL singles off the album COMBINED,Toni’s album is doing waaaay better than HURT YOU if that makes sense.But kudos for tryin it,if you only diverted that energy to your faves………..nevermind

  38. 2 girls 1 cup February 24, 2014

    lol keep laughing obviously i got you mad because you keep replying lol hey that comment about being 10 year old was general wasn’t meant for you but if the shoe fits feel free to wear it lol i cant get mad at your ignorance tho like i said my username is meant for a joke but im guessing you dont know about the video since you commenting about it anyways but like i said i cant be mad at your ignorance knowing how your username itself screams IGNORANCE….have a nice day.

  39. Stephy Tha Lambily February 24, 2014

    No matter what anyones says about Mariah she still has more money & sold more records than anyone of yall favs will ever dream of! Except Madonna!

    Im so happy even tho MAriahs voice is gone. She still is putting out music for her fans. She does not have to do anything like yalls basic flops cause she already slayed in her ERA but she still keeps going for her fans I LOVE HER

  40. CzarM February 24, 2014

    Yeah well good luck with that…

  41. lol February 24, 2014

    lets be real, emancipation was it for her. she has peaked and there’s no ‘comeback’ happening. now stay in the legends lane and stop trying to compete with these young girls like they’re your peers.

  42. GREEKGOD February 24, 2014

    Who invited a Ciara stan tho?

  43. Career Ender February 24, 2014

    The 4X4 or her team are lying!

    Its because the single flopped

    StruggleRiah the has-been diva

    I’m sure Onika is somewhere laughing very hard and doing the Minaj Blink ! Hahaha

  44. Lovebird February 24, 2014

    I cannot wait to see how badly it FLOPs.

  45. HIMEROS February 24, 2014

    What’s wrong with gimicks? If I look at the success of women in the 2000’s, the most successful women use gimicks! Beyonce – a hooker
    K*nty perry – a 12 year old girl
    “Ady Gags – Goddess of Love
    Who wants to watch someone in a jeans and tshit sing? If I wanted that, i’d go buy a Kelly Clarkson album.

  46. whut February 24, 2014

    Wouldn’t it be funny if, after all this hate, Mariah’s new album actually opens at #1 with a decent amount of first week sales.

  47. eric February 24, 2014

    Can we get her a new team please? Preferably one that doesn’t think the fans are stupid enough to buy into such a ridiculous lie about the album title leaking. Mariah was on the same foolishness about there being two versions of TAOLG when both of them sounded the same. Who is telling Mariah it’s okay to lie and throw blame around in the press when they make bad decisions as a team? Just be honest and you’ll get more respect.

  48. JOHNVIDAL February 24, 2014

    I can´t at @lovebird hating on Mariah Carey night and day when he was stanning for her just a few months ago and using her to downplay Celine Dion among others. I guess stanning for lessers and talentless chicks does that to you.

    About Mariah´s album: I can´t wait! It will be a good body of work no doubt about it, most young musicians who release the better music are not getting hits, and not even selling many albums, why should a person in her 25th year of career doing it? The quality is what matters. And as far as I know Sam loved #beautiful and also “You´re mine”, so can he please stop shading? It doesn´t make any sense. Don´t you like music? What other artist who debuted around 1990 is getting hit singles??????? NONE. Only Mariah gets some buzz and sometimes still a top10 or top20. That says it all.

  49. Toto February 24, 2014

    TGJ tries to shade Mariah all the damn time. Pathetic.

  50. Theman February 24, 2014

    So because she is releasing music with the current trash, she’d trying to compete with them? Lol.. Sit down !! U make music because it’s your passion.. Y’all are so used to songs being instant hits that y’all forget that some songs have to work their way up..

  51. RINO February 24, 2014

    Yeah but both Rihanna and Beyoncé are coming for that crown cause Rihanna has sold 150 Million Records and Beyoncé has 1118 Million Records so she aint gonna be the best selling Female artist for long.

  52. JER February 24, 2014

    the album BETTER be good. She’s been recording for 3 years now
