Mariah Carey Extends Vegas Residency / Details ‘Fun & Lighthearted’ New Album

Published: Monday 27th Aug 2018 by Rashad

Pop icon Mariah Carey’s return to Vegas via the aptly titled ‘The Butterfly Returns’ residency has seen the diva hit quite the high note – literally and figuratively as critical and commercial acclaim continue to roll in for the stint.

Now, fans will be pleased to learn they’ll be able to see the Grammy-winner at Caesar’s Palace well into the new year as she’s announcing a slew of new dates.  Taking to our friends at PEOPLE, the elusive chanteuse shared details about the outing as well as dished a bit on her long-awaited new album (the follow-up to 2014’s ‘Me…I Am Mariah’).

Curious to see what she has to say about the ‘fun & lighthearted’ new project?  Look inside:


“I’ve been working on my new album for a while. This is a labor of love and I’m really excited,” the superstar — who is extending her “The Butterfly Returns” residency at Caesars Palace into 2019 with new dates in February — tells PEOPLE. “This is me at this moment in my life being able to express myself as a writer and a singer. I’m just really in a good place.”

While her album will feel “current,” the singer insists she’s not trying to follow “anybody else’s trends.”

“My fans just want to hear me express myself and speak from the heart and sing from the heart,” says Carey, who will be performing her first leg of the residency through Sept. 10. “Some of the record is lighthearted and fun, and some [songs] I really went deep in terms of the lyrical content. There’s a nice cross-section of things.”

    Mariah’s new album “Unicorn&Lollipop” coming soon.

    • xyz August 28, 2018

      Love Mimi, but that title could be real 😂

    • The Truth August 28, 2018

      “Unicorn” will go platinum in a week…BET!

      You joking, but everybody knows her biggest albums had girly-yet classic titles!

    FADED IS still on repeat. Pure brilliance

    • Lmfao_Hoe August 27, 2018

      Smh that album had better single choices and worth performing still – Cry, Faded, Beautiful, Camouflage, Make It Look Good, and You Don’t Know What To Do

      • China August 28, 2018

        She gives this Album “NO” love. How can you ignore FADED or CAMOUFLAGE but give …… Touch my body and Hero all that love at every show……She is scared of change. Bring FADED or CAMOUFLAGE to life, Make it look Good is a BOP too. She has done s much WRONG in the last 7 years, SHE SHOULD GET THE LOVE LIKE JANET and tributes but she doesnt anymore.

    I want an updated sound and not We Belong Together 5.0. Bye Bye, Infinity, You’re Mine, I Don’t and even Don’t Forget About Us ALL sounded like weaker versions of WBT. That song was fire burn that’s Dupri mid 2000s sound is tired. #Beautiful was her freshest single and sound in a decade and should have been a huge hit but ageism and lack of radio play prevented that from happening

    • JOHNVIDAL August 28, 2018

      I agree. Beautiful was her only innovative sound this decade. She has done other great songs but for a hit, one needs a revampt after a while. Beautiful was the type of material. As charts proved. And it´s funny cause most of nowadays songs could be easily sung by her live. But who knows, she may just only want to make the music she loves.

    Cannot wait

  7. Rasputia Lattimore August 27, 2018

    She lip synchs too much for my taste. I am looking forward to a new studio album from her. Also, when they mention beautiful women over 40 they always forget to include Mariah but she is very beautiful.

  8. Julian August 27, 2018

    Sis has been looking PHENOMENAL as of late so you know the comeback is real. The skinniest legend!

    • Rasputia Lattimore August 28, 2018

      “Skinniest legend” has always been Halle Berry and Toni Braxton or even Diana Ross. Neither of them have ever looked like a wale or had weight lost surgery like Mariah has many times.

  9. M August 27, 2018

    This comeback is about to be so damn real! Not only is she looking just absolutely amazing lately, but she’s sounding so strong again too. She’s truly happy in life and you can tell. I love that she’s also working with new producers, as well as the classic hitmakers for her on this project as well! Cannot wait to hear it!!!! She’s got everything aligned perfectly so far!

    • JOHNVIDAL August 28, 2018

      Skinniest Legend would be Celine Dion, who keeps being in amazing shape and has always been.

      • Rasputia Latimore August 28, 2018

        Nobody thinking about that wrinkly old hag Celine but u John. Stop being an old queen of yester year. You always bringing some old white b|tch like people care. Trust me nobody cares about Celine’s boney frame, man face, or lack of women curves. She is on zero best looking lists.

      • JOHNVIDAL August 28, 2018

        Bish as much people or more care about Celine Dion than Mariah Carey following your stupidd logic. Look at the stats, her tours and the respect around her. That said, Celine is not s*** like that. But people were talking about skinny, and she is, and in much better shape than Mariah consistently. Celine, despite not being a performer in the sense of dancing, can work a stage big time. Her moves and spirit are young. And like I said, she is in good shape. And is way more femenine than Mariah btw.

      • Rasputia Lattimore August 28, 2018

        B|tch it whatever I say it is b|tch. Your queeny opinion don’t matter. Only opinoin that matters is Respetia’s. I don’t care how skinny Celine is she has no curves, a man face, and a haggard looking body. “Skinniest legend” has always been Halle Berry and Toni Braxton or even Diana Ross. Neither of them have ever looked haggard or anorexic like that ugly wrinkly b|tch Celine does everyday. Celine be selling voice cause she damn sure cannot sell sexx appeal.

      • JOHNVIDAL August 29, 2018

        I just think you are an ignorant American who lives ina guetto and has never grabbed a book or been influenced by other people than just 3 or 4 black artists. The world is big and diverse baby. It´s a pity you are missing it. Also, I don´t think you know what skinny is. Also, celine´s waist is rounded in a way more femenine way than Mariah´s. I just think you confuse curves with fat weight.
        Mariah looks great btw and I´m a fan. This is about your stupidity, not about Mariah.

  10. Jasmine (The Original Princess) August 28, 2018

    Lol @ whoever thinks she will have a strong commercial comeback ☠️☠️☠️

  11. DanYiel Iman August 28, 2018

    She’s doing what she’s been doing selling albums and making her way throughout the industry that’s not here for R&B artists!!

  12. pat August 28, 2018

    She’ll never have her former voice, but I hope she starts to take her craft seriously again. I know she still has it.

  13. The Truth August 28, 2018

    Light-hearted and yet deep, lyrically … sounds like a SMASH!!!!

  14. Selah August 28, 2018

    Why would anyone want to see this cow lip-moo across the stage for an hour? She is such a boring performer and can’t sing anymore. Aretha; sickly, aged 76 and in her final days gave a better vocal than Mariah could in 2018.
