Mariah Carey might be enlisting The Weeknd for her new album, dahling.
Mariah sat down with Extra’s Mario Lopez and revealed she’s currently working on a followup to 2014’s Me. I Am Mariah… The Elusive Chanteuse… and it could feature the sounds of Canada’s own The Weeknd!
“It’s not planned out, but I know he’s doing a lot right now,” Carey said. “We had a really good conversation and we’ll see. I think he’s a really, really talented artist.”
She also mentions setting out on a Latin American tour, her upcoming stint on Empire and connecting with her Lambs.
Miss Mariah has a secret concept planned for her next record but she is keeping it under wraps so nobody steals it!
“I’m taking a different approach with this record because I’m not holding myself to the studio like, ‘I’m making this album top to bottom.’ People don’t really do that anymore,” she said. “Right now I’m writing and recording and collaborating, and then we’ll see what the best of the best is.”
Adding: “It’s a secret because then everybody steals the concept,” she said. “I’m serious, it just happened to me like two months ago. I don’t want to go into it because then I’m gonna be shady.”
Can’t wait to see what she puts out next!
