Mariah Carey Announces New Album, Title for May 27th, One Song Features Twins


Mariah Carey has just announced her new album due May 27th a year late. But here it is. “Me I Am Mariah The Elusive Chanteuse” is renamed from last year’s “The Art of Letting Go.” Carey says it’s a very personal album. DefJam is hoping it’s a hit album, too. Carey is opening the Today show’s summer concert series on May 16th to promote it. Last May she opened Good Morning America’s concert series to promote the original version that never happened. If this album isn’t released, next year she can do Fox & Friends.

It does seem from the video that the album cover is printed, with a self portrait drawn by Mariah when she was 3 years old. One song, “Supernatural,” features her twins. The other songs are “Cry,” “Faded,” “Dedicated” featuring Nas, “#Beautiful,” “You’re Mine (Eternal),” “Thirsty,” “Make it Look Good,” “You Don’t Know What to Do” featuring Wale, “Meteorite,” “Camouflage,” “Money,” “One More Try,” and “Heavenly.” The latter seems like it will be a big gospel number. Not on the album is that single, “The Art of Letting Go.” Mariah has let that concept go.
