Mariah Carey may have just nabbed her 19th #1 single with ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You,’ but she’s already looking to her next musical adventure.
And it looks like she’s roping in exciting collaborators.
Full story below…
During a YouTube Q&A with Nessa, Mimi revealed that she’s working on the follow-up to 2018’s ‘Caution.’ She shared:
“I’m thinking about some new music and I have a few ideas. Yes, yes, yes. And I have spoken to some very interesting collaborators. I can’t get into it now. But I think you would be like “Oh, ok! It’ll be really good.”
When probed on the gender of the mystery partners, she said:
“Things [can] change dahling, but the one person I’m referring to: he’s a guy. But that’s all I’m gonna say. Two different guys, actually. The more the merrier, I always say (laughs).”
It’d be super smart for Mariah to harness this momentum towards the release of a new project. Ideally within the next 6 months. Because, why not?
As for these secret collaborators, she has us interested.
In being in the fine wine season of her career, we’re not anticipating that she’ll court the obvious, omnipresent chart titans of the now. That said, sonically she’d make for a great fit with the likes of Drake and/or The Weeknd. So we’re open to the possibilities. Heck, throw in Ariana Grande for good measure too.
Ultimately, music need not be so political. She’s a whole legend who is thankfully being given her flowers while she’s here to smell them. So, rather than the masses dream of such iconic pairings (as tends to be the case), why not feed us with them?!
