In separate announcements yesterday (May 20), both Mariah Carey and Usher announced the titles of their forthcoming albums.
Carey, who maintains an active presence on Twitter and has over 400,000 followers, made the announcement in a mid-day tweet.
"Bcuz I Love U, I want u to be the first to know the title of my new album "Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel" Its very personal & dedicated to u," she wrote. Carey also revealed on Twitter that she is working with Timbaland on the record.
The album is due in the fall, according to her label representative, but no further official information is yet available.
Usher's announcement was less dramatic. A one sentence press release distributed in the afternoon read, "Usher has just announced 'Monster' as the title for upcoming new album to be released fall 2009."
