Mariah Carey has been reserving to studio sessions with some new collaborators. After appearing in Instagram photos with DJ Khaled and Travi$ Scott earlier this month, the singer is working on new music with Compton rapper YG, according to reps.
According to TMZ, the pair are working on a “breakup record” that is believed to be inspired by her split from her ex-fiance James Packer. The song and its music video were reportedly filmed within 24 hours, and is expected to debut on the upcoming episode of E!’s Mariah’s World this weekend.
TMZ cameras also caught Mimi and YG leaving Los Angeles restaurant Catch. When asked if they’ll be collaborating on a song, YG said, “I don’t know what we doing.”
Another cameraman also asked Carey if she ruled out any performances following the New Year’s Eve lip-sync mishap, and she responded, “No, that was nonsense.”
She is also set to embark on a forthcoming tour with Lionel Richie.
