MARIAH CAREY PUSHES ALBUM BACK
With Mariah Carey’s first single, “#Beautiful,” featuring Miguel at #15 on the Billboard Hot 100, she announced the title of her upcoming twelfth studio album, The Art of Letting Go, and even before titling the album, she announced a release date of July 23rd!
But since continuing work on the project in the studio with Young Jeezy, Bryan-Michael Cox, Jermaine Dupri and Mike Will, Mimi took to her Twitter to express that she’s pushed the album back to continue to perfect it for her fans…
While making this album, I got so immersed in the creative process that I just don’t feel I would be doing it justice to release it on 7/23. I’d rather not exclude meaningful songs. I want to give you this album as it’s meant to be heard. When I’m ready, you’ll be the first to know!
Mimi is set to take the stage at this year’s BET Awards this Sunday, June 30th and at the Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular on July 4th. Seems as though the next couple of months will be busy ones for Mariah. Here’s hoping that the album is going to be pushed back too far.
