Mariah Carey's never been one to cede the spotlight to fellow singers and she
refused to be overshadowed again this week when the singer's team leaked her
latest single, "It's Like That", to radio one day after Jennifer Lopez' "Get
Right" hit the airwaves.
The release of Carey's single, from her forthcoming album, The Emancipation of
Mimi, came as a surprise since most expected the singer to release "Say Something"
to radio on January 25. Both "Say Something" and "Tonight" (featuring Pharrell)
had been leaked via the Internet in early December.
Carey's new album will hit store shelves March 22. The album includes production
from The Neptunes, Kanye West, R. Kelly, and Jermaine Dupri. "For the first time
in my life, I feel free and unashamed to be who I really am," Carey said. "I am
celebrating that I've grown into a person and artist who no longer feels imprisoned
by my insecurities. I can now honestly say, 'This is me, the real me, take it or
leave it.' "
"It's Like That" aired first on Hot 97 in New York City. Since the leak, over 40
stations have begun playing the track which is getting a great response. The singer
is planning to shoot the video with director Paul Hunter. "I'm actually in LA,
getting ready to meet with Paul Hunter, who you know, did Honey with me a long
time ago and did the Drop It Like It's Hot video," she told DJ Angie Martinez.
Carey is also launching the fashion line Kiss Kiss next year, planning to pen a
series of children's books and plans to take on Broadway. The Emancipation of Mimi,
will be her first album since the release of Charmbracelet in 2002.

MC at Hallmark Movies & Mysteries Summer TCA Tour in Los Angeles (55,537)
by EmCee82 from Belgium
When she attended the Hallmark Movies & Mysteries Summer TCA Tour in Los Angeles, she looks great. Not too diva-ish, but just plain, simple and elegant. Stylish like in the 1994-1998 era. I hope to see her going that direction back again. (Thursday 30 July 2015; 14:53)
Mariah Carey in Vegas: going for the high (55,536)
by Lee from UK
"If her voice today sounds relatively strained - a stark matter of anatomy and aging ... it's not her responsibility to somehow regain the able-voicedness she once possessed. No: it falls on us, the listeners, to listen to this difference differently, compassionately." What an eloquent writer this journalist is. I often wish for the vocals of the ... read more (Thursday 30 July 2015; 14:11)

Mariah was at the Hallmark red carpet talking about a Christmas movie that she will supposedly direct and star in. Not sure if it's the same movie as the RatPac one since she said she won't star in the RatPac one and that she is going to be an executive producer, not director. Anyways, I just saw the pictures and wow she is serving simultaneous Rai... read more (Thursday 30 July 2015; 10:57)
