Mariah Carey Announces New Album's Release Date
Carey broke the new album news to her fans via Twitter by posting, "The New Era Begins.. 7/23 #MC723" as the album's first single, "#Beautiful" featuring Miguel hits No. 17 on today's Billboard Hot 100 Chart.
While Carey is stepping away as a judge on American Idol after the show suffered a dramatic drop in ratings this past season, fans will be able to see the singer on the small screen on July 4th.
