Mariah Carey Inspired by Motherhood, Plots New Album

Mariah Carey

Mariah Carey is focusing all her attention on motherhood these days, but she hasn’t forgotten about her career. Monroe and Moroccan’s mother, who was playing music during the delivery of her twins, is already planning her next album, says husband Nick Cannon.

Aside from last year’s holiday collection Merry Christmas II You, the singer hasn’t released a studio album since Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel in 2009. “She’s been truly inspired by this experience and she can’t wait to get back into the studio,” Nick told Rap-Up.com. “She’s already been doing some preliminary work and meeting with a lot of producers and has tons of ideas, so I guarantee you can expect something soon.”

But one thing you shouldn’t expect is a collaboration between the new parents. “We might joke around and do something, but I’m not worthy to be in the studio with Mariah Carey. I do silly, jokey songs,” laughed the host of “America’s Got Talent,” whose comedy album Mr. Showbiz is now available on iTunes.

Nick, who’s working on a music album of his own with Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube, and Akon, bounces ideas off his wife. “That’s my best friend. Anything I do—she’s my toughest critic. She’ll say something’s wack, she’ll call it out like that. If she loves something, she’ll say she loves it. That’s my right hand so anything I do, she’s definitely involved in it.”

When they’re together, the couple listens to throwback R&B records and gospel. “We listen to a lot of old school stuff like The Gap Band and El DeBarge. The Clark Sisters—a lot gospel music goes on in our house.”

Those who can’t wait for Mariah’s return may get a glimpse of her this fall on Fox’s “The X Factor.” “Her and Simon [Cowell] talk quite frequently about what she wants to do,” shared Nick, “but she’s Mariah so she’s only gonna do it if she can do it her way.”

    @Joe, Right but E=MC2 wasn’t nearly as good as Emancipation.

    @RoryRock, I agree. I think Memoirs was supposed to be the follow up to Emancipation. In my eyes, it was. What is E=MC2? Never heard of it. lol.

    Memoirs was her best album to me since Charmbracelet. I don’t want a rehash of TEOM either, we don’t need a E=m3

    Memoirs felt a bit rushed.

    can we got some big ballads inspired by her first albums…some crazy up tempo songs, and hopefully a music video with mariah dancing! I’ve always wanted a music video of mariah dancing to an up beat song and some hard choreography, lol.
