*Mariah Carey took some notes from Beyonce!

Carey is releasing a surprise album sometime this year!

Fans have waited long enough for her 14th studio album. Now the suspense might kill them as she has a new secret name and release date for the album.

She dished to Billboard about her upcoming LP.

“I have to be the one that announces this, especially the title,” she tells the publication for their anticipated cover story. Adding that the name is a “personal possession of mine that’s part of an entity that I’ve had almost all my life.”

It only makes sense Carey is following in Beyonce’s footsteps.

Beyonce’s self-titled fifth album broke records at the end of last year with a surprise release and selling more than 820,000 units in its first three days. Folks are still talking about the “Partition” singer’s groundbreaking album.

It has been quite the journey for Carey working on her upcoming album. It was originally titled, “The Art of Letting Go.”

But when it comes to rumors she’s quitting music after this album, it’s simply not true.

“I will always make music. When I said it could be my last, that’s because tomorrow’s not promised to anyone.”
