Mariah Carey pulling a Beyoncé with surprise album
Mariah Carey has revealed that she's set to drop her new album in an all-at-once digital-only fashion.
Looks like the cat is out of the bag. After weeks of speculation about the identity of the next iTunes exclusive artist, it has been revealed that Mariah Carey will follow in similar footsteps to Beyoncé and unleash her brand-new studio album at the drop a dime.
In the cover story for the latest issue of Billboard, the pop icon confesses that she will drop her long-awaited album in an all-at-once digital-only fashion. Carey previously released three singles from the album: "Triumphant (Get Em)," "You're Mine (Eternal)" and "The Art of Letting Go." While the tracks didn't exactly catch fire, the singer remains pretty self-aware, acknowledging their lack of success.
"You would think I would be all about the singles-driven situation, and I am in a way, but with this particular album I want my fans to hear it as a body of work," Carey told the magazine about the project, which still doesn't have a confirmed album title, release date or track list. "This is my life since we last left off. Just picture a dot dot dot, and then here's the album."
