*Just be cause Mariah Carey took some time off to have twin babies doesn’t mean she took time off from her music.

“You’re definitely gonna see new phenomenal music from Mariah,” proud poppa and husband Nick Cannon told the New York Daily News. “She’s planning to have a record out this year.”

It seems that while she was working on bringing Moroccan and Monroe into the world, Mariah was doing the same with new music.

“She’s been working away, and we have a studio in the crib, and the pregnancy has totally inspired her on so many different levels,” Nick said.
