Mariah Carey

Mariah Carey fans can let out a sigh of relief! Everyone’s favorite diva has just announced she is back to doing what she does best – making music!

The songstress took to her Facebook page yesterday to announce she has recently written and recorded a new track. "Lil' excited to share with you that I wrote and recorded a song for Lee Daniels' new movie 'The Paperboy' called Mesmerized! Hope to play it for you very soon," she wrote.

Between her recent work as an actress and the birth of her twins, Mariah has been a busy lady and has slowed way down on musical releases. We think fans everywhere will agree a Mariah-worthy hit is long overdue!

Daniels and Carey have worked together previously in a variety of capacities, most memorably on his Oscar-nominated film “Precious” in 2009, where Mariah surprised everyone with her skillful performance as a social worker in Harlem during the late-'80s.

“The Paperboy” follows a reporter's return to his hometown to start an investigation of a death row inmate's case. Carey is not the only superstar attached to the film, which is set to premiere in competition at the Cannes Film Festival later this month. The cast includes heavy hitters such as Zac Efron, Nicole Kidman, Matthew McConaughey and John Cusack.

With this star-studded cast, Lee Daniel’s direction and Mariah Carey to serenade, how could audiences not be mesmerized?
