Mariah Carey has named her new album ‘Me. I Am Mariah…The Elusive Chanteuse’.
The album is due for release on May 26 and its elaborate title is explained by the singer in a video, which can be viewed at the top of the page.
Speaking about the first part of the title, Carey explains that it is inspired by a self-portrait she drew as a child. The same image will be used as the album’s artwork. “Please don”t judge me for such a simplistic title. Come on, I was only three and a half,” Carey says in the clip.
