Mariah Carey, the greatest artist of her generation/a parodically self-serious drag queen (depending on what day it is), has pushed back the release of her upcoming LP The Art Of Letting Go, originally scheduled to drop July 23. It’s a little curious:  Album delays are so often the result of underperforming singles, as everyone at the label scrambles to figure out how to save face, but Carey’s Miguel-assisted track “#Beautiful” (hashtag beautiful!) is her best single in years, and it’s continuing to climb the charts, currently at its to-date peak of #15 on the Hot 100.

But Carey, ever-humbly, explained that the pushback isn’t political — it’s personal.

In short: Mariah Carey will let you know when she’s ready for you. Until then, settle in and get comfortable. This might take awhile.
