Mariah Carey’s upcoming highly anticipated album finally has a title! Thanks to longtime collaborator and friend Jermaine Dupri, who made the official announcement last night. The Art Of Letting Go will be released on July 23rd. As you know the album will feature contributions from of course Jermaine Dupri, Bryan-Michael Cox, Mike Will Made It, Hit-Boy, The-Dream, Big Jam Wright, R. Kelly, Darkchild, and Miguel.
From that tweet one would gather that Carey has now finished putting the final touches on her new album, which I’m beyond excited for. So far lead single "#Beautiful," which features talented vocalist Miguel has thus far peaked at #15 on Billboard Hot 100. Speaking on "#Beautiful" Carey recently shared some behind the scenes photos and tweets leading one to believe that there could be a remix on the raise.
Whatever the case I cannot wait to hear this album! Based off the title I’m guessing there will be a lot of ballads, which is the strongest area Carey shines in. I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s revealed that Carey will be one of the performers for the upcoming BET Awards. Meanwhile all we need is one last album announcement from one person….
Some unreleased Kellz this morning! Here's some "alcohol music" as he says at the beginning with Roscoe Dash only really providing background vocals. My one highlight of this track: R. Kelly putting an R. Kelly twist on the familiar jingle "She works hard for the money.... so hard for the money.."

A touching tribute to the lives lost in the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy. Kellz relies mainly on choirs for the singing, but provides his positive sentiments as well. A nice track from the Chicago legend to show support for the students and families! *Tibs Fav. for sure.
