Mariah Carey is ready to take over the music world once again.
The legendary solo artist announced her 14th studio album yesterday, revealing the artwork and the inspiration behind "Me. I Am Mariah… The Elusive Chanteuse."
The album is based on her "first and only self-portrait," which is also the back cover of the album, Carey explains in the following video.
“Please don’t judge me for such a simplistic title. Come on, I was only three and a half,” she jokes.
The singer then adds:
"Along the way there have been a couple nicknames and I’ve inadvertently embodied many personas. Lately, they’ve been calling me the elusive chanteuse."
The new album comes out on May 27. Hopefully, Mariah will wear this dress when she performs most songs from it.
