Mariah Carey Feels Pressure to Complete Album

Mariah CareyMariah Carey feels there is a "lot of pressure" on her new album. The diva released comeback track "#Beautiful," featuring Miguel, on Monday and is racing to complete her eleventh studio album in time for summer.

Taking about a release date, she told radio host Ryan Seacrest, "Probably we're talking about earlier than mid-summer, which is a lot of pressure on me because I want these last few records to be just as good as the first records I started."

Mariah wrote "#Beautiful" with Miguel and was impressed with how in tune with each other they both were in the studio. "We got together, he had starting writing this song with just the guitar riff. And I have to say this about him as a collaborator, sometimes when you haven't worked with somebody you don't know really what they do in the studio... And if they have the same kind of love for music that I have... And he's the truth. We just wanted to do something different that has a texture that feels fresh," she explained.
