Mariah Carey is hard at work cooking up tracks for her 14th album, and from the look of things, it doesn’t appear that she’s fiddling with a winning recipe. She sticks with what works!The 42-year-old took to her Twitter account yesterday (April 18th), and uploaded a photo of herself along with producers Jermaine Dupri and Bryan Michael-Cox, both of whom she’s worked with extensively in the past, perhaps most famously on her 2005 LP, ‘The Emancipation of Mimi.’

“Break time at the studio with me, @Mr_Dupri and B. Cox,” she wrote, with the photo attached.

And while Carey is certainly focused on crafting some great new records— remember, she hasn’t released a full studio LP since since 2009′s ‘Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel’— that doesn’t mean she isn’t also about having some fun as well. In a bit of role reversal, she got behind the camera for an in-studio interview with JD. Watch the fun duo goof off and chat it up below!
