mariah carey with roc nation on her new album mariah is ready for this era.
Signing with roc nation, the iconic singer has started working on a new album with jay-z.

Mimi on her cover story for v magazine, talked about a “meeting of the minds” while
making a non-christmas album with hov and his r-o-c team.

“i’m in the studio starting a new album of regular music…meaning it’s not a christmas album,”
she said. “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 ty [tyran smith], who’s an incredible person,” she added.

“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.”

This is not new for m.c., who’s worked with jigga on songs like “heartbreaker,” “you got me,”
and “things that u do.” carey said “we just have a history as friends and as collaborators,
so it’s kind of a thing that’s already been established,” she added. “now, i’ve been getting
to know jay brown a lot better: I’ve always known who he was and really respected and
admired him so much.

The way he does business is just awe-inspiring, you know what i mean?
like, they’ve really done an incredible job together, he and jay. and they’re both named jay [laughs].
so we’ve been going back and forth with different writers, different ideas.

When i say writers, i mean cowriters, because i am a writer.”

This will be mariah’s first album after her me. i am mariah…the exlusive chanteuse in 2014.

Last year, she released the single “i don’t” featuring yg, a jermaine dupri-produced that
appeared on a remix of french montana’s “unforgettable.”.
