Mariah Carey Hits the Studio with Nas
Are Mariah Carey and Nas cooking up another collaboration? After celebrating his 40th birthday earlier this month, the pop diva hit the studio with the hip-hop legend this week.
She posted a photo of their late-night session with Jermaine Dupri on Twitter. “This album…….!” tweeted Mariah.
The two previously collaborated on the 2000 remix to “Thank God I Found You.”
Mariah is putting the finishing touches on the follow-up to 2009’s Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel. It was originally due in July, but does not currently have a release date.
In addition to Nas and JD, she has been in the studio with Wale, Young Jeezy, Mike Will Made-It, Rodney Jerkins, and The-Dream.
Earlier this month, she posted a photo of herself in the studio with Hit-Boy, writing, “The most incredible mix of a potential single by artists who live for music. I’m so happy! Potential…”
Hit-Boy added, “I’ma come clean. I fell asleep w this Mariah shit on repeat. Unreal melody. WoW. HBMCJF.”
The album has already spawned the Miguel-assisted hit “#Beautiful,” which peaked at No. 15 on the Billboard Hot 100.
