Mariah Carey Working On New Music

Mariah Carey is working steadily on her comeback, according to longtime collaborator Jermaine Dupri, who has cooked up some of the biggest hits in her catalogue, including "Always Be My Baby," "We Belong Together" and "Shake It Off."

In a recent interview with iHeartRadio, Dupri said: "I don't know I if I can tell you what she's working on now but, I mean, it's music. She's got a bunch of songs. I just did a bunch of songs for her. It feels aggressive, I can tell you that. When that's happening, ain't no telling what's about to happen."

Dupri is just one of the collaborators working on Carey's follow-up to 2014's Me. I Am Mariah... The Elusive Chanteuse. Among the other luminaries reportedly in the studio with Carey include Prince Charlez, No I.D., Johnta Austin, Crystal Nicole, Eric Hudson, Priscilla Renea, and Diane Warren. 

Back in March, Carey shared a few details about her forthcoming project via her cover story with V Magazine. "I'm kind of restarting, and I’m working with Roc Nation now, so that's great. I had a really incredible meeting – just a musical, good meeting of the minds – with Jay Brown, JAY-Z, and Tata [Tyran Smith], who’s an incredible person," she said.

"We all just kind of threw some ideas around, so we’re starting from the musical place rather than, like, what’s the hook? It’s gotta be done that way."
