If you loved #Beautiful, oh man are you going to love this!
Mariah Carey aka world’s most popular R&B diva aka songstress whose vocal prowess consists of a voice with multiple octaves is back! In 2008, her smash hit single, “Touch My Body” left a deep (and we mean deep) impression with most of us before she ran off to have a pair of twins with hubby Nick Cannon and took a seat in the American Idol judging panel. If you remember, it was also then that her highly publicised rivalry with Nicki Minaj got completely out of hand, with Mariah reportedly calling Nicki Minaj “Satan”.
But we digress.
In late 2012, she started giving the first hints about her 14th studio album. In an interview with Billboard, she said, “I’m collaborating with a lot of my favourite people but the main thing is that I’m not trying to follow any particular trend. I want it to be well received. I want to stay true to myself and the music that I love and make the fans happy.”
