Mariah Carey wore two different tiny swimsuits while filming in Southern Italy with fellow recording artist Miguel yesterday. The pop icon showed off her fit physique when she shared a photo collage of herself in a black cutout monokini on Twitter with the caption, "Behind the scenes on set with @MiguelUnlimited!! Coming soon." As part of the shoot, Mariah and Miguel went swimming in the blue grotto, off the island of Capri, and hopped on a yacht after climbing out of the water. The duo have been spending time together since collaborating on the song "Beautiful," which was released last month and is a track off Mariah's highly anticipated 13th studio album. The album, the official title of which has yet to be released, will drop July 23.
Much of the hype may be due to Mariah's frequent Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram teases. While she announced the album release date on her personal accounts, Mariah also took to Instagram yesterday to share a personal snap of herself in blue waters with the caption: "A much needed splash after hours pon de mic singing for my beautiful lambily." In the post, she was addressing her fan base and revealed that her new work encompasses "three years of my soul." Mariah has returned to song-making after announcing last month that she will be not be returning for the next season of Fox's American Idol.
