In addition to those high powered producers, Mimi recruited her old pal Jermaine Dupri. “I was and still am in a very prolific space,” she said. “I could say, ‘Let’s stop now.’ But that’s not who I am, and that’s not what I want this record to be. I really want the fans to love this record.” Carey also said there are “a lot more raw ballads than people might expect.” Sounds like maybe she’s channeling Beyonce‘s 4 playbook, and that Idol hasn’t served as a distraction at all. These are all good signs!
Carey also appeared on Live with Kelly & Michael today (March 1), where she chatted about raising her twins (a.k.a. Dem Babies). Hushed awwws ensued. Watch it all below.
