Ultimately, the album would not only revive Mariah's then-wavering career, but would also go on to sell more than 6 million copies and take home armfuls of awards.

"It's hard for me to sit here and talk about it without sounding like I'm bragging," Mariah recently said about her upcoming, as-yet untitled CD. "But I'm in love with this album."

And, according to Mariah, a lot of the joy she's had in recording this newest batch of music, scheduled for release in early 2008, comes from her experience with Emancipation. "Having the success of the last record allowed me to have more freedom," the 37-year-old beauty explained. Now, Mariah says, "I just make records that I like."
