Mariah Carey, Title TBD, (May 6th)

Most recently titled The Art of Letting Go, Mariah Carey's once again unnamed new LP has been rumored to be "coming soon" since at least 2011 but never felt imminent until the breezy, Miguel-featuring "#Beautiful" was only stopped by two Pharrell-aided tracks from becoming last year's song of the summer. Now as spring 2014 approaches, expect Mimi's new "You're Mine (Eternal)" to make a similar seasonal push. The rest of record, meanwhile, is expected to feature tracks from producers Jermaine Dupri, Rodney Jerkins, and even Hit-Boy. "He is a favorite of mine," Carey told MTV News about the latter. "We really got to together and had philosophical conversations about music in general." Those conversations solidified that Mariah knows what she does best. When asked if there'd be any EDM-influenced tracks, she said: "I'd rather stay off the bandwagon."
