Mariah Carey is back to work. The wife of Nick Cannon, who took a brief break after giving birth to her first children earlier this year, informed her Twitter followers that she has returned to studio to prepare for her next studio installment.
For the new album, the mother of two is reuniting with her longtime collaborator Jermaine Dupri. Ecstatic about the project, she tweeted on Sunday, September 25, "So happy to be back in the studio with the one & only @Mr_Dupri aka Jermash!"
It's been two years since Mariah released "Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel" as her 12th studio album. She filled the gap between the 2009 effort and its follow-up by releasing a holiday album "Merry Christmas II You". She also contributes to "Tony Bennett: Duets II" in a song called "When Do the Bells Ring for Me".
