Mariah Carey has recruited the some of the hottest producers for her long-delayed album The Art of Letting Go, which was initially slated to arrive in this past July.
On Thursday night, the singer posted a picture on Instagram of herself in the studio with the likes of Jermaine Dupri, Darkchild, Hit-Boy and Mike WiLL Made It. She captioned the black-and-white pic with the hashtag “#studiolife.”
The picture was liked by more than 29,000 fans. One of her lambs commented, “Mariah is the greatest singer in the world, there is no comparison. So looking forward to your new album! It’s going to be amazing,” while another wrote,”You are going to take over the world like a storm.”
Another fan remarked that it was nice to see Mimi and JD collaborating once more, especially since the most recent collaborations by the duo — on 2005’s The Emancipation of Mimi and 2008’s E=MC² — resulted in some of her biggest hit singles. Dupri did not produce any songs on the singer’s 2009 effort, Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel, which to date has sold far fewer copies than either of those albums. It featured production by The-Dream, among others.
While no release date has been announced for The Art of Letting Go, Mariah tweeted in June, “I want to give you this album as it’s meant to be heard. When I’m ready, you’ll be the first 2 know.”
