Billboard reports that Mariah Carey has announced her fourteenth album, Me. I Am Mariah…The Elusive Chanteuse. The album will arrive at digital and physical retail locations on May 27. She said that she took the title from a "personal possession of mine that's part of an entity that I've had almost all my life." In a video to announce the album, she said that it's based on her "first and only self-portrait," which is on the back cover of the album and was drawn when she was a kid.
She added: "Please don't judge me for such a simplistic title. Come on, I was only three and a half."
The Elusive Chanteuse part of the title is a nickname she's acquired recently, similar to her nicknames of "Mimi" and "MC".
The album has production from Rodney Jerkins, Jermaine Dupri, Hit-Boy and Mike Will Made It along with guest appearances from Nas, Wale, Miguel. Fabolous and Carey's twins Moroccan and Monroe (who turned 3 yesterday). The deluxe version has duets with R. Kelly and Mary J. Blige, which may be outtakes from a 2010 remix of Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel that was never completed. Both songs ("Betcha Gon' Know" with Kelly, "It's A Wrap" with Blige) originally appeared on that album.
The album has been set for several release dates, including May 6. Her latest single, "You're Mine (Eternal)", made it onto the Hot 100 for one week in February and sold 56,000 copies. It's her seventeenth #1 on the Dance club chart as of this week.
