Its nothing but a hunch but I suspect Sony have definitely laid down some expectations around the time LA got the boot. I refuse to believe her about face on releasing only singles for the foreseeable future and suddenly saying "album soon" isn't connected to LA leaving/new label dynamics.

That could be it; or it could be that they realized with "I Don't" flopping that it wasn't the best approach.

That's exactly what I suspect. Maybe LA wasn't rushing her to actually give them a proper album but the second he was gone, I think things changed. This is how things work - the second you get even an average shift in personnel at a label (product manager, digital marketing manager, etc), things change. Mariah's mate basically just left the label and whoever is in coming isn't going to have the same affinity or offer the same passes.

What they are going to have is they've still got a new sign with no new music barring a pretty poorly performing greatest hits. It wouldn't shock me if it was "give us something or get out". And remember, Mariah doesn't have all that many options if (even as a legacy artist) she wants to remain in the lanes of major label funding and the advantages that brings.

Ya'll think this is 1991 and record labels own their artists. They don't have much control over Mariah especially at her caliber so whatever deal she has, I'm sure she's protected and couldn't be bothered with any supposed threats of termination. They'd have to buy her out which would be too much drama and bad publicity on their part.

Queen is back in the Studio and I'm super excited! Hopefully she starts sharing some of the producers she's working with for this Record

I think we can forget about an album this year. The tour with Lionel ends September 5th and the movie with her new song premieres on November 10th. I doubt she is planning to release the first single on that two month spam from a project that is going to be overshadowed by both The Star and All I Want For Christmas Is You.

This year would only make sense if she had a finished product that she could tout whilst doing the rounds at xmas when she is always booked, the single would need to be out in the next month or two, so yeah not gonna happen

I don't think any of us believed the statement about an album this year, even so it's bizarre that they would even put that out there? Like, they know how much time it takes to put an entire album project together (especially for Mariah these days) so why even put out that statement? Just don't say anything if you don't know.
