Mariah Carey celebrated the release of her new single “The Art of Letting Go” by upping her already considerable glam game for an appearance on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon…But not before she posted a photo to Instagram showing off her fab physique in a very revealing (and certainly underwear-free) dress!
The new song is the title track off her long-awaited upcoming album, and so far the verdict is that old school Mimi is back! “The melancholy number finds Carey in fine form, exploring loss over a smooth, orchestral production,” writes Mike Ayers of Rolling Stone. “The song builds steadily over three and a half minutes, and just when you think that it might be one of Carey’s more controlled performances in years, she brings it home with classic Carey high notes.”
The cut is even more triumphant when you realize that Mariah was recovering from a debilitating (and painful!) shoulder injury that occurred while filming a music video back in July. Although facing nerve damage and fractured ribs , she tells Extra that “We are almost at a place where it’s a 100 percent better, but you can’t really rush it. It is what it is.”
Yup, she sounds good, she feels good, and these Instagrams prove that she looks good, too! Head up to the gallery above to check out 15 of the steamiest snaps from our favorite social-media savvy soulstress!
