Most anticipated albums of 2014
Beck, Wu-Tang Clan, U2, and even more Kanye West
Mariah Carey -Title TBD
Release date: May 6
Why it's anticipated: Mariah Carey has been tempting us with a new album for more than two years and time after time it’s been delayed, either because she wanted to retool the songs or because she hurt her shoulder and needed recovery time. The songs she’s released from the new set have, with the exception of “#Beautiful,” featuring Miguel, not set the world on fire. Even the sweet “You’re Mine (Eternal)” has struggled, but Mimi may surprise us all with the new album, her first since 2009’s “Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel.” For a brief time, the album was titled “The Art of Letting Go,” but that is no longer the case.
