Mariah Carey Cancels July 23 Release Date for ‘Art of Letting Go’

Mariah Carey June 2013

Remember last week when we announced that Mariah Carey had chosen July 23rd as the official release date for her upcoming 14th studio album, The Art of Letting Go ?

Well, that’s not going to happen . The singer took to her official Twitter page last night and stated:

“While making this album, I got so immersed in the creative process that I just don’t feel I would be doing it justice to release it on 7/23. I’d rather not exclude meaningful songs. I want to give you this album as it’s meant to be heard. When I’m ready, you’ll be the first 2 know!”

Even though the album has been pushed back, its lead single “#Beautiful,” which features Miguel , is still making big waves on the charts.

So far it has peaked at #15 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, as well as #3 on the US Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. Take a look at what Miguel had to say about the song below:

“The hashtag in the title of this song is particularly fitting because the word that comes before ‘beautiful’ when I sing the chorus is an expletive that I can’t say on air. But the hashtag is particularly fitting for that expletive, if you just kind of pay a little bit of attention.”

Mariah has worked with producers Jermaine Dupri, Bryan-Michael Cox, Hit-Boy and The-Dream . Thoughts?
