Mariah Carey Wants 14th Studio Album Out Soon
Mariah Carey has been busy working on her 14th studio album for quite some time, and now, in a recent interview with Ryan Seacrest, she wants the release out. Carey, apparently, had been working on the release before she became pregnant with twins and has since been moving forward with getting it complete and in stores.
The current American Idol judge told Seacrest: "I'm really working hard. Randy [Jackson], he hasn't even been in the studio in like months to hear what I have. He doesn't know every detail of this because I've been working with a bunch of people in secret locations."
The only taste for fans was Carey’s new single last year, “Triumphant,” which featured Rick Ross and Meek Mill. The single received lukewarm reception. Since then, Carey released “Almost Home,” a song for the Oz the Great and Powerful soundtrack.
Previously, one of the album’s producers, Bryan-Michael Cox, stated: "Then after she came back, we started really vibing again and we picked up right where we left off. I just feel like between Jermaine [Dupri], myself and her, we came up with a few things that [are] really, really a solid body of work."
With a picture of herself in the studio, Carey unofficially revealed she was working on a follow-up to 2009’s Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel in April 2012. Later that year, in a conference call, she revealed the album would have more collaborators and would not follow a particular trend.
