+Mariah Carey has been sure making a splash. This time she covers +Billboard magazine. Mariah Carey hasn’t been having the best of luck with the latest singles released from her delayed, yet anticipated 14th album. However, that didn’t stop Billboard from putting her on the cover of their latest May issue.
In the cover story Billboard exclusively reveals that Carey will be taking a surprise approach to the project by revealing her new album’s title, track listing, artwork and music all at once via to-be-announced digital partners (a physical release at retail is expected the following week). Wait, is it really a surprise if we are hearing this now?
The full story features Mariah and her new manager Jermaine Dupri, talking candidly about the rocky road to the album’s launch – from the failed singles to her drama-plagued stint on “American Idol” in 2013, to her shoulder injury that has played a major part in the delay.
