US pop star Mariah Carey said on Friday that she was canceling a tour stop in Brussels amid safety concerns following attacks this week that killed 31 people and injured some 270 more.

The songstress, one of the best-selling female solo artists of recent times, was slated to perform in the now-racked Belgian city on Sunday as part of her "Sweet Sweet Fantasy" European tour.

"I love my fans in Brussels and at this time I am being advised to cancel my show for the safety of my fans, my band, crew and everyone involved with the tour. I hope to see you soon and send my prayers and eternal love," she said in a statement on her Twitter account.

Carey, perhaps best known for her 90s hits like "Hero," "Fantasy," and "Always Be My Baby," is set to wrap up her tour with back-to-back performances in Johannesburg in May.
