Mariah Carey And R. Kelly Record Duet In Chicago Studio

Mariah Carey recently teamed up to record a duet with R. Kelly in his hometown of Chicago as she stopped in the city for American Idol auditions.

The pop diva expressed how excited she was to be recording with the "Ignition" singer, as she tweeted:

"Me and Kells in the lab in Chi town working on a new song! OMG-his voice sounds A++&#trappedintgecloset #totalclassic."

The pair previously recorded a song together called, "Betcha Gon' Know" which never surfaced because it was supposed to be included on Angels Advocate, the scrapped re-release of Mariah's 2009 album Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel.

Carey's upcoming album, her first studio release since 2010's Merry Christmas II You, is due out early next year.
