Mariah Carey Planning a Beyonce-Esque Album Drop!

Mariah Carey Planning a Beyonce-Esque Album Drop!

Mariah Carey looks ever so seductive on the cover of Billboard magazine’s latest issue.

Here’s what the 44-year-old superstar had to share with the mag:

On planning to release the album in a Beyonce-esque fashion: “I have to be the one that announces this, especially the title. [It's a] personal possession of mine that’s part of an entity that I’ve had almost all my life.”

On what is different about this album: “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. This is my life since we last left off. Just picture a dot dot dot, and then here’s the album.”

On not quitting music: “If this were to be my last album, people would hear everything they needed to hear. I will always make music. When I said it could be my last, that’s because tomorrow’s not promised to anyone.”

Stunning! Reminds me of her classic Music Box album cover. Can’t wait to hear her lengendary vocal and songwriting.

refreshing an honest answers…I think mariah is finally coming into her own as a woman and artist.

How is it like Beyonce’s surprise album if she’s announcing it in advance?

# 4

Its not a Beyonce “surprise” album. The title, artwork and tracks are being kept quiet until its released, kinda like old school getting it from the record store. We know its coming in May, just not the details.

Mariah has to realize that at 45 young people are no longer buying her music. It happens to every artist once they hit a certain age.

@Meh:

This is completely false. Most music message boards that I visit are all visited by younger people who are very much into Mariah. She is not what she was in the 90s by any means as far as popularity, but who is from the 90s? Also, she has managed to stay relevant for 25 years. That deserves to be applauded.
