Mariah Carey and R. Kelly definitely recorded something together, we just don't know what it is...yet. Mariah tweeted a photo of her and R. in the studio in Chicago recently with the caption, "Me and Kells in the lab in Chi town working on a new song! OMG-his voice sounds A++." But the addition of hashtags "#trappedinthecloset" and "#totalclassic" has us hoping for the best: Will MiMi be featured on one of Kells' new chapters of "Trapped in the Closet"? Please say yes. (Or can Kells at least add to our list of raunchiest lyrics ever?)

Alongside preparing for her new role as judge on the upcoming season of American Idol, Mariah has also announced she's working on a new album. (The first single, "Triumphant (Get 'Em)," was released this summer.) So there's a chance the duet belongs to Mariah, but if not, it's gotta be for "Trapped in the Closet," right? Earlier this year Kells announced there are 32 new chapters (!!!) in the works, so maybe he's finally laying them down? 

Regardless, we really just want to see a Mariah Carey cameo in R. Kelly's next video. How do we make that happen?
