James Packer wedding preparations

Carey got engaged to the Australian businessman in January and is expected to tie the knot at some point in 2016. According to TMZ, the couple are planning for their wedding ceremony to take place on the island of Barbuda in the Caribbean and only a handful of their close friends will be flown out to witness them recite their vows. No doubt Mariah's World will give an insight into Carey's wedding planning.

Carey has successfully launched her Sweet Sweet Fantasy tour, which incorporates a Las Vegas residency, and is currently touring the UK for the first time in 13 years. Carey's Lambs would love to see how the diva prepares to hit the stage, the process of fine-tuning her voice and of course the costume changes.

Dem babies

The We Belong Together singer shares the most adorable photos and videos of her children Moroccan and Monroe but viewers will want to see the four-year-old twins in action as Carey embarks on her everyday life. They might give Mason and Penelope Disick a run for their money.

Aside from 2015's greatest hits compilation #1 To Infinity, Carey has not released a studio album since Me. I Am Mariah... The Elusive Chanteuse in 2014.

She told Access Hollywood: "You're going to be seeing at least another single soon."
