MC is back. Four years since her last album, the legendary Mariah Carey returns with her 15th studio album Caution.
Boasting 10 tracks, the hybrid hip-hop/R&B album features the Mustard-produced single “With You” as well as “GTFO” and “The Distance” with Ty Dolla $ign. Elsewhere, Slick Rick and Blood Orange’s Dev Hynes guest on the standout “Giving Me Life,” while Gunna delivers a verse on the trap-influenced “Stay Strong Love You.” Production comes courtesy of Timbaland (“8th Grade,” “Portrait”), The Stereotypes (“Stay Strong Love You”), Skrillex (“The Distance”), Nineteen85 (“GTFO”), and Shea Taylor (“A No No”).
The album title was inspired by the title track. “The funny thing is I didn’t call it Caution because I’m, like, ‘Ooh, I am being cautious,'” Mariah told the U.K.’s Metro. “It’s just because of a song called ‘Caution.’ It’s more of a wary love song.”
As she releases the new project, the soundtrack to her 2001 movie Glitter has also returned to the charts in a big way. Thanks to her loyal “Lambily,” the album surged to No. 1 on iTunes Tops Albums chart, 17 years after the movie’s release.
Mariah will hit the road in support of Caution. Her 22-city “Caution World Tour” kicks off in Dallas on Feb. 27 and hits cities including Atlanta, Chicago, Toronto, Atlantic City, Philadelphia, and more through April 6.
