Is Mariah Carey’s new music worth the wait? After months of teasing fans about new music, the singer has finally released a single, “The Art of Letting Go.” She debuted the song on her Facebook page Monday.
“For the first time ever, here it is… “The Art of Letting Go”!!! This is such a personal record to me,” she shared. “I wrote the lyrics so that anyone and everyone could relate to them and hopefully release anything that they need to let go of that’s holding them back or bringing them down. Thank you for sharing this experience with me!”
The former American Idol judge was supposed to release her new album over the summer, but canceled the release date because she felt it wasn’t quite ready yet. A new date has yet to be revealed, but whenever it is, it’ll be her first album since 2009 (besides a 2010 Christmas album).
In 2013, Mariah was featured on Miguel’s “Beautiful,” but before that, her last major, chart-climbing single was “Obsessed.”
