Mariah Carey Pushes Back Album

Mariah Carey

Mariah Carey is not quite ready to let go of her new album. The pop diva has delayed the release of The Art of Letting Go.

The album was originally due July 23, but has now been pushed back to an undisclosed date.

She informed her Lambs via Twitter. “While making this album, I got so immersed in the creative process that I just don’t feel I would be doing it justice to release it on 7/23,” tweeted Mariah. “I’d rather not exclude meaningful songs. 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!”

She was recently in the studio with Young Jeezy and Mike WiLL Made It, and has been working with hitmakers including Jermaine Dupri, Rodney Jerkins, Hit-Boy, The-Dream, and more.

Her Miguel-assisted single “#Beautiful” is currently No. 15 on the Billboard Hot 100 and she was spotted in Capri shooting another video with Miguel earlier this month.

Mariah is set to perform at the BET Awards on June 30 and the Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular on July 4.

    Who didn’t see this coming? Beautiful isn’t smashing and let’s not forget those other “singles”.

    “While making this album, I got so immersed in the creative process that I just don’t feel I would be doing it justice to release it on 7/23.” means I haven’t promoted or set the album up or something going on bts.

    “I’d rather not exclude meaningful songs. I want to give you this album as it’s meant to be heard.” means there’s some drama with what’s gonna be included. My guess is IDJ wants some commercial, light fluff.

    Well the single is in the Top 20, so my only guess is that the label want maybe another single out as well maybe a more urban one or more Pop…..If #beautiful is in the Top 10 next week, I think she’ll move the release date to just one week later

    So in other words, the first single ain’t booming, so we gotta rework this. She needs a track that will really wow people, sort of like on a Emotions’ or Fantasy’ scale, and it really needs to be just herself, not with a feature for leverage. And it may not hurt to not have as many rappers on this one.

    She basically tries to say that she wants another “We Belong Together” so that she can drop that album. NOT going to happen Mariah, I’m sorry.

    if y’all remember correctly “It’s Like That” peaked at #17 as the first single off “Emancipation”… “#beautiful” has already outperformed that, so Mimi prob has something up her sleeve.

    Well, ‘It’s Like That’ hit #16…but she released Emancipation of Mimi too early for that mid charting hit. I bet #Beautiful will chart into the Top 10 or a newer great hit is up her sleeve to finally release her new CD. She’s smart. She knows what she’s doing.I’m anticipating it already!

    I’d say it’s a good move on her part because 7/23 is less than a month away! If anything, she should push it back to 4th quarter to ensure that she gets decent sales.

    @Kyle, I know people are going to come for me hard, but i think if she release her album on that day she might get out sold by the Selena Gomez girl. I hear her song all over the radio and it is doing great. So i am glad she moved it, because that would be humiliating to get outsold by a disney girl.

    She needs to learn, “The Art of Letting Go”. She’s getting creeky. She had her shine with the Emancipation Of Mimi and E=MC^2. She should just accept features.
