Mariah Carey Announces Album Release Date
Grammy Award-winning singer Mariah Carey has confirmed the release date for her album, Mariah Carey #1 To Infinity.
Infinity is a greatest-hits package containing all 18 of her Billboard No. 1’s. Due May 18, the album reunited Epic chairman-CEO Antonio “L.A.” Reid and the star. Reid was instrumental in spearheading Carey’s mid-2000’s comeback with The Emancipation of Mimi.
“I couldn’t be more thrilled to be back together again with Mariah,” Reid said in a statement. “There is really no one who comes close to Mariah as both a songwriter and a singer, and as the world knows, her vocal range is legendary and truly incomparable. Her music is indelibly etched into our culture, and she’s shattered so many chart records that she’s now firmly entrenched in the history books. With a fierce and loyal fan base that covers every corner of the globe, I have no doubt Mariah will do it again.”
The album will include Carey’s 15 Sony No. 1’s and 3 Universal No. 1’s. It will also include a new track, “Infinity.” The song will premiere globally on April 27 via all digital services. A Brett Ratner-directed video will also be released at that time.
Carey will kick off a residency at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas on April 27.
