New Music: Mariah Carey Debuts Her Single, “The Art of Letting Go”
Mariah Carey has let go of a new single. The 43-year-old international superstar just released a new power ballad called “The Art of Letting Go,” off her forthcoming 14th studio album of the same name.
“I wrote and produced ‘The Art of Letting Go’ with my friend, the uber talented Rodney Jerkins,” Carey shared with her fans on Facebook back in October. “We had worked together before, but this time around, I feel we went down a more organic path in terms of our approach to the songwriting process.”
“The Art of Letting Go” serves as the follow-up to the Miguel duet “#Beautiful,” which peaked at No. 15 on the Billboard Hot 100 when it debuted back in May.
“‘The Art of Letting Go’ was the second of two beloved songs I wrote with Rodney for this album,” Carey says. “As we were writing, we both got goosebumps and a feeling of nostalgia. It might sound over the top but when I was singing this song, I felt like I had touched upon certain emotions within myself that I haven’t put on a record in a very long time. I truly can’t wait for all of you to hear and share these feelings with me.”
Listen to Carey show off her vocal prowess on “The Art of Letting Go” below. Carey’s highly-anticipated new album is scheduled to debut sometime next year.
