*On the heels of her BET Honors performance of new single “You’re Mine (Eternal),” Mariah Carey released a teaser video today revealing the release date of her long-delayed next studio album.
“You’re Mine (Eternal)” is due out on Wednesday (Feb. 12), and the follow-up to 2009’s “Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel” is now due on May 6.
The album was supposed to hit the streets last July, but the singer delayed the album and then had to recover from a shoulder injury she suffered filming a music video last summer. The album has been previewed by “#Beautiful,” her Top 20 hit with Miguel, as well as the track “The Art of Letting Go,” which was released in November.
The two-minute teaser video starts out with footage of Carey’s various career achievements, including topping the Hot 100 chart 18 times — the most No. 1 Hot 100 singles among solo artists, and second to only the Beatles, who own 20 No. 1 singles.
