Omg! Are we seriously seeing this right now? Justin Bieber, French Montana and Mariah Carey are all in the same place, at the same time — and it looks a lot like a recording studio! Be still, our hearts!
Mariah Carey, 45, got us all riled up when she she posted the most magnificent photo to Instagram on July 31 we’ve ever seen. She was hanging out with Justin Bieber, 21, and French Montana, 30, in what seems to be a recording studio. And her caption is leading us to believe something amazing — is there new music on the way from this trio? Fingers crossed!
Don’t tease us, Mariah! The iconic diva posted an Instagram in the early hours of July 31 that showed her being buddy-buddy with Justin, French and pal Eric Hudson in the studio. It wouldn’t be a Mariah affair if there wasn’t a glass of champagne close by! So what were they all celebrating?
“#comingsoon @frenchmontana @ehudmusic @joeyarbagey @justinbieber,” she captioned the pic. That sounds a lot like a collaboration between Mimi, the Biebs and French is happening very, very soon! Can you believe that?
Mariah tagged Joey Arbagey, who collaborated with Mariah on her six-times platinum album The Emancipation of Mimi, and is now an executive at Epic records. Also tagged: legendary producer Eric, who has worked with both Mariah and Justin in the past, as well as produced records by everyone from Whitney Houston, to Mary J. Blige, to Rick Ross! We have a feeling that whatever they’re cooking up in this studio, it’s going to be a good one!
It’s been awhile since we’ve heard anything new from Mariah. Though her single “Infinity,” which was produced by Eric, dropped in April 2015, it wasn’t enough; one song just left us craving more Mariah. We’re so glad that’s happening (hopefully) soon. As for Justin, he had an alleged new song leak on July 19 with some very suspicious lyrics that fans thought might be about one Selena Gomez, 22. With Justin, Mariah and French working together, maybe we’ll get the ultimate breakup song — watch out Nick, Khloe and Selena!
