If you’re one of the millions of fans who wish Mariah Carey would just sing again already, you’re in luck. The queen of breathy love songs has released a new romantic single for Valentine’s Day called “You’re Mine,” featuring Trey Songz (who appears in the remix).
“You’re Mine” is the latest song teasing Mariah’s long-awaited album, The Art of Letting Go, which is finally coming out on May 6. In the music video for “You’re Mine,” Mariah plays a lonely mermaid singing about her crush (Trey) while perched atop some seaside rocks. (Watch it below.)
Talk of Mariah’s new album, The Art of Letting Go, began way back in 2012. After debuting the single “Beautiful” with Miguel, it was slated for a July 23, 2013 release until she abruptly called it off, tweeting to fans, “While making this album, I got so immersed in the creative process that I just don’t feel like I would be doing it justice to release it on 7/23. When I’m ready, you’ll be the first 2 know!”
But it wasn’t until New Year’s Eve that Mimi announced on live TV the album would finally arrive in late Spring 2014. Wearing a plunging sequined gown and performing in freezing New York City temperatures, Mariah flawlessly sang a high-energy medley of her hits like “Emotions,” “We Belong Together,” and “Fantasy,” along with the second single, “The Art of Letting Go,” on “New Year’s Eve with Carson Daly.” (Watch them below.)
She’s not the only diva returning to the stage. After taking time off for motherhood, rumor has it vocal knockout Adele has also been working on a new album and it’s expected out mid-2014. Her BFF, One Republic’s Ryan Tedder, gushed last October, “Adele sounds even better than before. I love where she’s at. She’s still my favorite artist in the world.”
New music from fellow songstresses Lily Allen, Lana Del Rey (May 1), Sara Evans (March 11), Martina McBride (April 8), Jo Dee Messina (March 18), Kylie Minogue (March 18), and Mariah’s frenemy Nicki Minaj are also on tap this year.
