Here's the scoop:
Clue #1: On April 13, Mimi tweeted about Miguel:
Looking forward to seeing @miguelunlimited on SNL tonight, just saw him at the studio the other day, soo talented!— Mariah Carey (@MariahCarey) April 14, 2013
Clue #2: Idolator reports that an assistant to video director Joseph Kahn (Britney Spears, Eminem, Muse) let important news slip on Twitter last weekend. "Working on a Mariah Carey + Miguel video for the man Joseph Kahn," he wrote. "Wouldn't trade this for 1,000 Coachellas." The tweet has since been deleted [eyebrow raise].
Clue #3: Kahn tweets about a "video" and a mysterious "she," just as the weekend wraps:
Wrapped new video. Yup, she's the bomb. Love her.— Joseph Kahn (@JosephKahn) April 22, 2013
Clue #4: Kahn tweets with famous blogger/close Carey friend, B. Scott:
Perhaps there's a cameo from Scott or maybe he was hanging around set like friends of pop stars do? If anyone's hesitant to believe a B. Scott/Mimi friendship look no further: Mimi gave Scott a song to premiere.
Clue #5: Kahn tries to be coy:
I can't confirm the artist until they do. But what a lovely treat for a video director.— Joseph Kahn (@JosephKahn) April 22, 2013
But as user @MariahCarey327 points outs, “I think we already figured it out! First name Mariah? I CAN'T WAIT!”
Are Mariah's fans right? Are Miguel and Mimi working together on a new song video? Only time will tell, but we're expecting the official press release any time now...
