Just five months after giving birth to twins, new mom Mariah Carey is back at work.
The diva’s longtime producer Jermaine Dupri posted photos of Carey in the studio on his official website.
Mariah posted the pictures as well, and tweeted about her new endeavor: “So happy to be back in the studio with the one & only @Mr_Dupri aka Jermash!"
In an interview with Billboard, Nick Cannon confirmed that his wife is working on a new album.
"She's been working away, and we have a studio in the crib, and [the pregnancy] has totally inspired her on so many different levels,” he said. “You're definitely gonna see some new phenomenal music from Mariah."
Carey, 41, and Cannon, 30, welcomed twins Monroe and Moroccan Scott on April 30 of this year.
Nick assures fans that Mariah’s latest effort will be available toward the end of the year.
Carey released her 12th studio album, “Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel,” in 2009, and her second holiday album, “Merry Christmas II You,” last year.
