Johannesburg - Mimi is back in the studio and working on a new album.

The Beautiful hitmaker confirmed the news to People magazine, adding that she’s in a “really good place”.

“I’ve been working on my new album for a while. This is a labour of love and I’m really excited. This is me at this moment in my life being able to express myself as a writer and a singer. I’m just really in a good place,” Mimi told the mag of her upcoming record.

She further added that she won’t be following any of the current musical trends, as she aims to produce music that is distinctively true to her.

“My fans just want to hear me express myself and speak from the heart and sing from the heart,” she said. “Some of the record is light-hearted and fun, and some [songs] I really went deep in terms of the lyrical content. There’s a nice cross-section of things.”

For now Mariah, who is mom to twins Monroe and Moroccan (7), is fully focused on her The Butterfly Returns Las Vegas residency, which she recently extended until February next year.

“I’ve been loving it so much,” she says about the show. “A lot of the fans who have come out to see it were really happy having a little more diversity. I want to make it really impromptu and surprise the people who have come out again and again to see the show.”
