(November 16, 2018 – Los Angeles, CA) – The wait ends today! The incomparable, multi-platinum, multiple Grammy award winning global superstar Mariah Carey (the best-selling female artist of all time with 18 Hot 100 #1 hits)releases her mega-anticipated 15th full-length studio album, Caution. Get it HERE via Epic Records.
Over the past two months, the superstar teased out the impending release with a series of big and bold bangers kicked off by “GTFO” and followed by “With You” and “The Distance” [feat. Ty Dolla $ign]. The most recent single “A No No” sent the internet into a frenzy with its reinterpretation of Lil Kim’s “Crush On You” (remix) [feat. The Notorious B.I.G. & Lil Cease]. Rolling Stone praised it as “another quintessential kiss-off.” To date, the tracks comprising Caution impressively generated over 25 million total streams and over 11 million total YouTube/VEVO views. The early success and buzz remain testaments to her enduring influence and undeniable presence.
The album flaunts some of Mariah’s most dynamic, diverse, and daring moments. She unites eras and genres on the groove of “Giving Me Life” [feat. Slick Rick & Blood Orange] completed by a wailing guitar lead. Meanwhile, “8th Grade” represents an emotional highpoint and moment of cinematic confessionalism on tape. Then, there’s the high energy bedroom jam “Stay Long Love You” [feat. Gunna] where Mariah and hip-hop’s hottest new contender lock into a hypnotic harmony. Everything culminates on the emotionally charged piano-driven “Portrait,” which illuminates her everlasting range.
However, the seductive title track offers up the perfect invitation to this opus as she confidently croons, “Proceed with caution.”
In order to celebrate Caution, Mariah hosts an innovative and immersive activation, “The Mariah Experience,” in New York beginning today through December 4 at Sony Square NYC [25 Madison Avenue]. Starting at 7:30pm, she will personally sign copies of the new record. Fans may can purchase it at Sony Square NYC as of 10am. While supplies last, purchase grants one first-come first-served wristband to access the signing. “The Mariah Experience” brings her world to life like never before. This Mariah Carey-themed experiential space boasts Instagrammable photo sets (bound to be highly “liked”), multimedia displays, memorabilia, a pop-up shop, and so much more. This marks a first for the trailblazing superstar and provides the perfect introduction to Caution.
Nearly three decades into her career, Mariah Carey continues to make history and deliver timeless popular music at a level never replicated by any other superstar. Ultimately, Caution represents a new level for Mariah and pop music at large.
