Mariah Carey soars with "It's like that"
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.

The haters are still here. They are very "creative" in their endeavours. Instead of posting, they do thumbs up while they lurk in between finding new ways to criticise, put down and shade MC and Lambily. It's not that Mariah can't sing anymore now, that horsey refuses to stay beaten and on the ground, after we've all seen a full concert and individ... read more

"You're delusional, you're delusional." One only has to click on my post history (and I had been posting far longer on a different account back in the day) to know that I am not being paid to somehow sabotage Mariah's career (using reverse psychology, apparently) but uh interesting conspiracy theory I suppose. Reading that dig was quite upsetting a... read more

This is not new that 'The Elusive Chonteuse Show" has impressed everyone where have it been. China, for example, became the main stage of Mariah Carey and her team in the last days. Provided that she landed in Beijing for five shows in Chinese territory, the musical critics and the press, in general, only wove praises the musical icon named Mariah ... read more
