Mariah Carey To Surprise Fans With Next Album?
April 25, 2014


Mariah Carey
Mariah Carey has been at work for some time on her next studio album, and the Pop singer hopes to drop the record with little warning at some point in 2014. In a new interview with Billboard, Carey says she wants to announce the album title, artwork, and track list when it is released digitally, with a CD release a week later. This is essentially the same tactic Beyoncé took last year with her wildly successful self-titled record.

As for the title of the album, Carey said it is named after "personal possession of mine that's part of an entity that I've had almost all my life."

In the Billboard interview, Carey and her new manager Jermaine Dupri discuss the long road to her new record, as well as her stint on American Idol, and her 2013 shoulder injury which she says she "downplayed" at the time. Carey reveals that she went back and listened to her own catalog to get inspired for the new record, which features a wide range of collaborators. In addition to longtime cohorts Dupri and Rodney Jerkins, Carey has spent time in the studio with Hit-Boy, Mike Will Made It, Wale, Nas and Trey Songz, as well as "a special guest star that I'm not allowed to reveal."
