“Out with the old, in with the new” may be Mariah Carey‘s approach to her record label situation, however the superstar singer is sticking with her longtime musical collaborators.
Fresh from the announcement that the 45-year-old diva has inked a lucrative new deal with Epic Records, it’s been revealed that she’s been hard at work in the studio with Jermaine Dupri.
Confirmation comes courtesy of the hitmaker himself; for, while captioning a snap on Instagram, he shared that he had “been in the studio all night with @MariahCarey.”
His words tally with the singer’s own assertions this week on Twitter that she has been recording in Los Angeles.
Given the messy muckiness that was JD’s momentary run as Mimi’s manager, it’s understandable why some may greet their studio reunion with a collective groan. However, we’re fine with it.
Folk far too often forget the lengthy list of hits that the pair have cooked up together – namely cuts such as ‘Always Be My Baby’ and millennial smash ‘We Belong Together.’
What’s more, with talk of Mariah’s upcoming ‘#1’s’ album potentially featuring new collaboration versions, we’re keen to see if any of the JD numbers receive said treatment. Pardon the pun, but how epic would a duet rendition of ‘We Belong Together’ be?!
Anyway, as ever…
