Mariah Carey bares all
(timesofindia.indiatimes.com ) - The sexy singer bares all on the cover of her new single Touch My Body from her new album E=MC2, covering her modesty with nothing but a large, wide-brimmed black hat. It is not the first time that Carey has teased fans with a naked shot she raised eyebrows with her sensual ads for her signature perfume last year. In the saucy advert, Carey appeared to be stripping for a bath. Carey has announced that her new album will hit record shelves on April 15. The album's first single, Touch My Body, which she wrote and produced with Tricky Stewart and The-Dream (the duo behind Rihanna's Umbrella), hit radio stations across the US last week, on Tuesday. The video for Touch My Body has been directed by long-time collaborator Brett Ratner, who has helmed some of Carey clips such as We Belong Together, Heartbreaker and I Still Believe. The album comes three years after Carey's previous album, The Emancipation of Mimi, which earned three Grammys. The new album features production from the likes of Jermaine Dupri and will.i.am, as well as collaborations with R& B singer T-Pain and reggae star Damian Marley. While promoting her fragrance, Carey had said that creating the perfume and working on her album influenced each other. "I've been working on this record while I was working on the fragrance," she said. "I wanted my fragrance to be sensual. It's really been like writing a song. This was almost like the same creative process," she added.
