Music News: Mariah Carey’s The New Era Begins

After the birth of beautiful twins, Mariah Carey gave her diva crown a break. But not for long.

Lending her voice to the original soundtrack of a Disney movie, “Oz the Great and Powerful,” Carey then spared no time to finish off her latest album. It premiered with a duet number called “Beautiful,” in which the female singing powerhouse collaborated with Spanish vocalist Miguel. Hot on the heels of her worldwide recording successions, of “Emancipation of Mimi” and “E=MC2,” “The New Era Begins” marks a new dawn for her five octave feat.
