UPDATE: Mariah Carey's new album

As we all know, Mariah has returned to the recording studio to work on a new album. On Friday, April 9th, she announced excitely on Twitter: "To all the Lambs in the land..Finally!!!Me& Jermash are in his studio reliving the splendor working on new ish."

Jermash is, of course, Jermaine Dupri whom Mariah collaborated with on many songs including the #1 hits: "Always Be My Baby" (Daydream, 1995), "We Belong Together" (The Emancipation of Mimi, 2005) and "Don't Forget About Us" (The Emancipation of Mimi Re-release, 2005). His co-writing and producing partners Bryan-Michael Cox and Johnta Austin are also involved in the project.

Producer Teddy Riley has shown interest on the new Mariah album. On Sunday, April 11th, Jermaine tweeted Teddy that he was working with Mariah, and in reply, Teddy offered, "Would like to do a joint with you for the LP."

It will be Mariah's first time to work with Teddy Riley should this come to fruition. Teddy's long list of production credits include, Michael Jackson's "Remember The Time," Whitney Houston's "Step By Step," Backstreet's "No Diggity," Lady Gaga's "Teeth," and Keith Sweat's "Make It Last Forever" which Mariah interpolated into the "Thank God I Found You" remix in 1999.

We will be monitoring the developments of Mariah's new album closely, and will keep you all up to date.
