Mariah Carey will record a duet with soul legend Stevie Wonder in an audacious bid to return to the top of the charts.

The sexy singer is on her way back after a traumatic past 18 months, which saw an album and film flop, a rumoured breakdown and a change of record companies.

And she sees a collaboration with the SIGNED, SEALED, DELIVERED I'M YOURS star as the launchpad to take her back to the top.

A source close to Mariah tells British tabloid the DAILY STAR, "Mariah has always been a huge fan of Stevie. But she'd never dared to try and set something up.

"Recently the office phone went and it was Stevie Wonder himself on the end of the line."
