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.

||Atlantic residency (48,020)
by B from USA|
Mariah's album sold over 100,000 copies with no promo and its lead single was a hit. #Beautiful went Platinum. Mariah is still relevant. I think a residency would do more harm than good. It would make her look like a woman who is irrelevant and she's not. She needs to hire the trainer that whipped her into shape during the E=MC2 era and release a n... read more

||Mariah Carey and Taylor Swift's "1989" (48,019)
by Prince Lodestar from Indonesia|
Anyone notices some of Taylor Swift's songs on her new album are lightly inspired by Mariah Carey? From my POV, here are some songs:
1. Shake It Off, which is obviously, the title is the same (though the song is entirely different).
2. Style, the melody of the chorus reminds me a lot of Money ($ * / ...)
3. Stay, the "Stay" part is really simila... read more
