Back in September, Mariah Carey revealed an Instagram photo that she’d logged studio time with Nas during a late-night session. Now, the singer is spilling new details about their upcoming collaboration, which will appear on her upcoming album, The Art of Letting Go.
“We have yet to finish our collaboration but it’s one of people’s favorite records,” Carey told MTV News. “Even though it’s nowhere near finished, and even though it’s not at that [right] place yet.” The upcoming duet marks their first collaboration since the 2000 remix to “Thank God I Found You.”
Carey’s longtime collaborator and new manager Jermaine Dupri added, “It’s gonna be dope, I could tell you that.”
Mimi also spoke about the overall vibe of her highly anticipated project. “[The album’s] sound is varied in terms of textures and in terms of the lyrics,” she explained. “A lot of songs are [very] different from one another, but there’s something that’s similar in terms of all the records. There’s an intensity that I think people are going to feel.”
In addition to Nas, the disc will include contributions from Rodney Jerkins, Darkchild, Hit-Boy and Mike WiLL Made It. Mariah will premiere the album’s title track, “The Art of Letting Go,” via her Facebook page on November 11 at 11 a.m. ET.
