Will it be lucky No. 13 for Mariah Carey? We'll find out on July 23, when she releases her newest studio album.
Carey revealed the date with a pithy tweet on Wednesday:
The still-untitled album features a host of collaborators, including R. Kelly, Da Brat, Q-Tip, Jermaine Dupri, Hit-Boy, The-Dream and Rodney Jenkins. Carey's latest single, the Miguel collaboration "#Beautiful," debuted May 6 and currently sits at No. 17 on the Billboard Hot 100.
"I'm collaborating with a lot of my favorite people, but the main thing is [that] I'm not trying to follow any particular trend," Carey told Billboard last August, around the time the single "Triumphant (Get 'Em)" was released. "I want it to be well received. I want to stay true to myself and the music that I love and make the fans happy."
Carey performed "#Beautiful" on last month's "American Idol" finale, as well as a medley of past hits "Vision of Love," "Make It Happen," "My All" and "Hero." Watch the performance here:
