Mariah Carey to Drop Album This Year / by

According to Nick Cannon, wifey Mariah Carey is set to drop a new album sometime this year. He revealed to Billboard that she already has most of the album recorded and done. Peep the article after the jump.

"She's planning on having a record out this year," says Cannon of Carey, who gave birth to Moroccan Scott Cannon and Monroe Cannon on April 30.

According to Cannon, Carey completed a good amount of recording a few months ago during her pregnancy. "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.

You're definitely gonna see some new phenomenal music from Mariah."

That's good to know. Her last few albums haven't been the very best in terms of musical content. But now with a new life and new inspirations, she possibly can get it back on track, musically at least. I'll be looking forward to more news from her. I wonder if she'll get that spanking hot body back?
