Mariah Carey hit some bumps in the road and says she isn’t quite ready to release her new album The Art of Letting Go just yet. The 43 year old songstress and mother of twins Munroe and Moroccan was planning to release the new album on July 23 but said that she got so immersed in the creative process that she didn’t think it would do the album justice to release it then.

The singer explained that there were a few songs that she did not want to exclude from the album and so she prefers to wait. No word yet as to when the album will be released. Carey spent time earlier in the summer on the island of Capri shooting a music video for a collaboration she did with Miguel.

The singer was hospitalized in July after she suffered a dislocated shoulder and broken rib while shooting the music video for a remix of her song Beautiful in New York. Sources say the injuries may have happened when the singer took a fall in her heels. The injuries didn’t stop her performing at a Hurricane Sandy Relief Concert in Central Park on July 23.

The multiple Grammy Award-winning Carey has been on a musical and personal high since marrying Nick Cannon in 2008. The pair welcomed their children, one boy, one girl, in April 2011.

The sauce is then rubbed over the meat which is left to marinade in the sauce. The food can be cooked over a grill, barbecue, or in the oven.

Jerk is the most popular dish in Jamaica and just about anything can be jerked. Meats that are jerked include chicken, pork, beef, sausages, fish, lobster, squid, shrimp, conch, rabbit, and mutton while staples that have been jerked include breadfruit.

Jerk food can be eaten by itself or with rice, dumplings, or festival or by itself with a fork or with the hands.
