Mariah Carey is thisclose to mastering the art of letting go…
The 43-year-old half-Venezuelan singer is preparing to release the second single off her upcoming album The Art of Letting Go; and the Grammy winner is offering her fans a teaser video for the new single, which happens to be the title track of her fourteenth studio effort.
Released via Carey’s Facebook page, the black-and-white clip features the singer in a recording session with Jermaine Dupri, Rodney Jerkins and composer Larry Gold. The former American Idol judge is also seen rehearsing with the members of an orchestra.
“I guess there’s a lot of curiosity about the title The Art of Letting Go,” she says of the song in the nearly one minute clip. “People are like, ‘What does that mean to you?’ And I’m like, ‘I just want it to mean what it means to you.’ ”
“Music has saved my life, and there’s certain things that I still can’t let go of even if I try so hard, I still can’t let go of them and I know there’s other people in the world that feel the same way,” she continues. “If there’s just one person that I help get through a situation with this song, then that makes my life and that makes me know that I can get through pretty much anything.”
“The Art of Letting Go” will premiere on Carey’s Facebook page on November 11 at 11:00 am EST. Meanwhile, her album of the same title is expected to arrive later this year.
