She's stepping out of the motherhood cocoon she's created for herself ahead of the release of her new single The Art of Letting Go.
But it's clear when it comes to getting dressed Mariah Carey is still learning the art of covering up.
The American songstress revealed her ample cleavage in a low-cut black dress when stepping out in New York on Monday.
Mariah wore the cleavage boosting figure hugging dress with a black leather biker jacket and killer patent stilletto heeled boots.
Wearing the jacket and leggings under the dress the superstar was completely covered apart from her ample chest.
The only flash of colour came from a pair of red tinted sunglasses, matching red nails and her neon pink phone, which she clutched in her right hand while walking in the New York sunshine.
The Beautiful singer's hair looked sleek and glossy and she accessorised with diamond hoop earrings and a delicate gold chain.
The appearance comes just days before Mariah is set to release her new single, The Art Of Letting Go, via Facebook on 11 November.
Mariah told CNN that it was a personal song, but had universal meaning: 'As a songwriter, I never like to be too totally specific, because I like people to be able to make it about their own life experiences.'
'(But) there is an art to learning how to let go of things in your life, people in your life, things that are not good for you. Whatever the case may be.

Mariah posted a picture of herself on Instagram on Saturday, which showed her returning to her buxom, bouffant, glamour mode.

The transformation clearly worked as Mariah - who is a mother to daughter Monroe and son Morrocan - looked every inch the celebrity with big hair and a bling ring on display.
She also revealed her ample cleavage in a pink teddy, which she tried to appear coy in - despite letting the right strap fall sedictively.
