Exciting news for the Lambily! Mariah Carey will be rocking the cover of Billboard magazine this week, however whats inside the
magazine is even more exciting. “Me. I am Mariah… The Elusive Chanteuse“, will be in stores on May 27 (in stores and online) and I personally don’t think I could be anymore excited!
The album title hits home for the living legend, dating back to when she was three and a half years old on a her first (and only) ever childhood painting of herself. Carey talks more in-depth about the title on her YouTube channel (below).
“Please don’t judge me for such a simplistic title,” she says. “Come on, I was only three and a half!”
She evens claims a new nickname that also is the second half of the album title, “The Elusive Chanteuse“, which translates to ‘a female singer of popular songs’ from French to English.
Mariah told Billboard in a recent interview she was interesting in doing a “Beyoncé style release” with her album. However, it looks like it is a little too late for that, as she drops her album name, and date, before we even got the new music! I think it would have been interesting to compare both of the album sales together with a surprise album.
See the track list for “Me. I Am Mariah… The Elusive Chanteuse” at the bottom of this page.
Producers featured on the album include Jermaine Dupri (of course), Hit-Boy, and even Mike Will Made it and Wale, Nas, and Miguel are to be featured artist on Mariah’s new album, according to Billboard. R. Kelly and Mary J. Blige are to be on the deluxe version of the album, as well as Dembabies, Moroccan and Monroe!
With how her music is doing now, even having her own No. 1 on the Billboard Dance Club chart currently, I expect this album to have a nice quality sound and let’s see how this album sells.
Me. I Am Mariah… The Elusive Chanteuse is expected to hit stores digitally and in stores on May 27.
