Is Mariah Carey readying a big ballad for her comeback album?
Time will tell, however it that may be the case after it was revealed the premium diva hit the lab with legendary songwriter Diane Warren.
Warren, whose credits include ‘Un-Break My Heart’ and Beyonce’s ‘I Was Here’ sent Carey’s legion of lambs into a frenzy recently after confirming that she has re-teamed with Mimi:
That song is crazy!!! So great to work+hang w U again @MariahCarey! We forgot to take a fucking pic tho! C U soon!

As some will recall, Mariah and Diane previously paired up to pen ‘Can’t Take That Way (Mariah’s Theme),’ which appears on 1999’s ‘Rainbow.’ Thereafter, they worked together on lesser known number ‘There For Me’ (a B-Side on to the ‘Glitter’ LP’s ‘Never Too Far’).
We’ve long felt Carey, at this point in her illustrious career, should be re-embracing big ballads and using them as vehicles to re-brand as a mature album seller.
Of course, she serves as one of the most notable sellers of LPs in history, yet recent years have seen numbers drastically dwindle as she aggressively chased single success.
With her Las Vegas stint proving that there’s still ample power in her name, the time is ripe for Mimi to leverage that win into the relaunch of her modern music career. And if there’s anyone equipped to steer her in the right direction, it’s Ms. Warren.
