Mariah Carey Taps YG for Breakup Anthem

MC 4Hunnid!

Following a studio session with Travis Scott and DJ Khaled, Mariah Carey has enlisted YG for her upcoming single. According to TMZ, the two recorded the breakup anthem and shot a music video over the weekend.

Both the song and video are set to premiere on the season finale of her E! docu-series “Mariah’s World” on Sunday, Jan. 29. The track was reportedly inspired by real life events, given her recent split from fiancé James Packer. Insiders say Mariah hopes the song will help women overcome their own heartbreaks.

On Sunday (Jan. 22), MC and YG celebrated their work together with dinner at Catch in West Hollywood, where they were asked about a possible collaboration. YG simply told paparazzi: “I don’t know what we doin’.”

Mariah was also mum on the possibility of a collab. She only responded to a question about whether she would perform at a New Year’s Eve event this year following her recent ill-fated set. “Yeah, okay,” she said sarcastically. “That’s what I’ll be doing.”

Mariah is currently working on the follow-up to 2014’s Me. I Am Mariah…The Elusive Chanteuse, her first album since signing to Epic Records. Meanwhile, YG is recording Just Re’d Up 3 and his 400 Summers mixtape with DJ Mustard.
