Exclusive Interview

Mariah Carey Talks "Genius" Facebook Music Release

The "#Beautiful" singer sat down with Fuse News to discuss premiering her new single, "The Art of Letting Go," on the social network

Fuse News recently caught up with legendary diva Mariah Carey, who's prepping for the release for her upcoming fourteenth studio album, The Art of Letting Go. She sat down with long-time producer Jermaine Dupri and opened up about hitting the studio, recording a hit song and why she chose to premiere the title track via Facebook.

"When we talked about [premiering "The Art of Letting Go" on Facebook], I said, 'I think that's genius!'... Because the fans worldwide [can access the music]," Mariah said. 

"I've always had a special relationship with my fans. It's not like, 'Oh, here comes the new world of the Internet. Let me figure out how to adapt myself into this.' No. It was always either calling my fans... or having fans wait hours on end in front of a signing, and I tried to do things like buy pizza for them," she continued. She's always had your back, lambs!

The "Don't" singer, Ed Sheeran, makes a special appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" as the lovable orphan, Annie. Donning the famous red dress, and the equally famous red hair, we think Sheeran would make a great understudy. The best part though? His little dog friend, Sandy on that skateboard.
