Mariah Carey Announces New Album ‘Me. I Am Mariah…The Elusive Chanteuse’

Me. I Am Mariah... The Elusive Chanteuse

As promised, Mariah Carey has announced all the details surrounding her 14th album including a title, release date, cover art, and tracklisting.

The pop diva took to Twitter on her sixth wedding anniversary and Dem Babies’ third birthday to reveal Me. I Am Mariah…The Elusive Chanteuse. The album, which is now available for pre-order on iTunes, will be released on May 27 featuring the singles “You’re Mine (Eternal)” and “#Beautiful.”

The title was inspired by a self-portrait that she drew when she was three years old. The illustration is also featured on the back cover.

“Please don’t judge me for such a simplistic title. Come on, I was only three-and-a-half,” said Mariah. “It was a creative visualization of how I saw myself with the purity of a child’s heart before it was ever broken.”

The 15-track standard edition features appearances from Nas, Wale, Fabolous, Miguel, and even her twins Moroccan and Monroe, with production from Hit-Boy, Jermaine Dupri, Rodney Jerkins, and more.

The deluxe contains three additional tracks including last year’s ballad “The Art of Letting Go” and her previously leaked collaborations with R. Kelly and Mary J. Blige off her scrapped Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel remix album.

    The cover is interesting. I don’t love it or hate it. I don’t think its appropriate per se, and the original photos (from last spring) were great.

    Musically, yay- mostly. Not looking forward to Wale and I’m very annoyed that You’re Mine is on here. Awful song.

    I hit pre-order out of initial excitement, but she’s fallen from guaranteed greatness to iffy so we shall see.

    @DRB, I still love Beautiful but unless it fits really well or its the extended version, I’ll probably delete it. 12 track album. Hopefully the others one are much better.

    She should have stuck with the surprise release date. It made sense and that is how artist should do it to avoid leaks. Oh well still gonna buy.

    Beyonce’s album title was simple too just saying.

    [Reply]

    Coolio Reply:

    @Koi, I do agree with you that Beyonce’s album title was simple but Mariah’s is not. Beyonce’s title was just her name, “BEYONCE”. How the hell is “Me. I am Mariah… The Elusive Chanteuse” considered a simple album title. Sure the way the title is structured makes Mariah sound simple minded but be honest, half of her fans won’t even be able to pronounce Chanteuse let alone actually know what the word means without having to look it up!

    The Art of Letting Go > Me. I Am Mariah…The Elusive Chanteuse.

    “#Beautiful” (feat. Miguel)
    “You’re Mine (Eternal)”
    “The Art of Letting Go”

    Long as those songs are on the album, I’m still buying.

    Kind of disappointed that she changed the title from The Art of Letting Go, the single cover from that song fits like an actual album cover for the record.

    I think it’s a missed opportunity, but life goes on

    I could do with ‘The Elusive Chanteuse’ part… but it’s fitting for her. Me. I Am Mariah is pretty smooth tho. HEr song titles are always interesting to me too (in a good way). I’m sure this album will be great. Classic Mariah.

    The cover. Don’t like.

    SIDE NOTE: J.LO’s news track, ‘First Love’ is on iTunes now.

  21. cant wait.. but why?

    sounds like an intersting piece of artwork, but why would she add songs ditched from her memoirs of an imperfect angel remix album..that was scrapped?!?!!? unless those songs have a different sound its ok, but if they are they same tune its quite lazy of her to do that!!!

    [Reply]

    jake Reply:

    @cant wait.. but why?, Its only on the deluxe album. The songs were never released, for the most part they have nothing to do with the actual album. its more so a treat for the fans who want to hear them. she’s giving you 16 tracks + those 2…thats more than most albums these days that are 10-12 tracks total.

    The Beyonce Impact is very noticeable here. First let’s talk about the title. It’s basically the same as Beyonce’s “Beyonce” but she had to make it known that this her. She is Mariah. I guess people confuse her for someone else and she tired of it. Bet this album woulda been called “Mariah Carey” if she didn’t name her debut that. Now let’s talk about Supernatural feat. “Dem Babiez” Girl Beyonce already got Blue featured on her album, so now she wants her kids on her album. and Thirdly, let’s talk about how this was supposed to be a surprise album but the Beyonce impact would have been TOO noticeable, so she released all the info 3 weeks before. Girl this better be good because that last album had me sleeping like a baby. I wanna hear WBT pt 2 or something

    @Nick,

    Just have a seat. Who cares about a Beyonce? We are here for MC. Whatever Bey did worked for her. Good. Let Mariah do her thing , the promo she wants to do and all.

    Her music is far better than anything Beyonce has ever produced. Bey’s last album was again a piece of trash but no one noticed it because of the surprise effect. Except for a few songs, it’s very forgetable songs. as always.

    Let alone Beyoncé has never outsold MC on any shit nor produced anything on the level of I Wish You Well or We belong together.

    karamelkisses Reply:

    @Kilyan, obviously mariah cares about beyonce since she was going to drop her latest project like beyonce but her team realized it would never work. @nick was right, there are shades are beyonce all over this project however beyonce has a fanbase unlike any other in music … we are very loyal to her and her projects. mariah’s fanbse runs hot and cold, supportive of some of her projects … her last album flopped considering who she is. beyonce out tours mariah, 132 shows in the span of a year and 26 more shows coming up in a month. both have monster singles, not these microwavable ones, songs like we belong together sat at #1 for 20 weeks while single ladies, irreplaceable sat at #1 for 18 & 15 weeks respectively. the only edge mariah has is her 7 octives while bey has 5 however both are bad bitches that still slay these younger lessers in the game! #beyandmariaharefriends

    [Reply]

    Kilyan Reply:

    @karamelkisses,

    Get your facts right. If you wanna debate and compare , be factual and not on some crazy ass lies.

    WBT sat down at #1 for 14 weeks. Irreplaceable for 10 weeks & SL for 8 if I’m not mistakening. That’s far from 15 & 18 weeks. Faaaaaaaaar from any records held by Mariah.

    And Mariah has 5 octaves … Bey barely holds between 2.5 and 3.

    That’s the only things I will check you on cause everything you said is biased and I could prove you wrong.

    Regardless of your opinion , please check an interview with Mariah about 2 years ago where she said that she thought that to gain & make sales more interesting , albums should have been released only digitally first. Thing that your Bey has done in December ( beside the surprise effect ). So yeah … Thanks again.

    There’s only one artist that has paved the way for another one and it’s certainly not your King.

    I respect Bey for her hard work ( and stealing ) and cause she’s def one of the best entertainer in the industry.

    But Mariah is far above when it comes to artistry.

    Mariah has sold like 200M records WW, or maybe she has sold more than 200M by now, but still less than Madonna, but the point is, MORE THAN BEYONCE. & By the way, she outsold my fave, but my fave’s the Mariah/Madonna of this generation… When will Beyonce be the second best selling female artist? & Britney’s first album outsold all of Bey’s albums, LMFAOOO!

    [Reply]

    karamelkisses Reply:

    @#RihSlaysYourFaves, DON’T YOU EVER REFER TO RIHANNA AS THE MARIAH OF ANYTHING! mariah has 7 octives while rihanna has 1 and I’m not sure if we can count that one (the nasally singsong bullshit she does). mariah is at 200m ww, bey’s TOTAL (group and solo) is at 194m ww. child, go play in traffic … mariah & madonna shout out beyonce, sit in the audience at her show, have called her powerful & an excellent performer and both are friends w/ beyonce. truth be told, a rihanna fan should NEVER weigh in on talent seeing as how your fave struggles in that area & has to strip to stay relevant!
