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.

Mimi L / Las Vegas (55,017)
by Licia from USA
Mimi that's what I have been worried about. With her vacation and the 4th of July holiday, how is she going to rehearse? Yes she deserves a vacation, but let's be real 2015 voice can't bounce back like 1990 voice could. Yes she was able to rehearse a week before the start of the first shows and she sounded great, but with her voice being so inconsi... read more (Thursday 2 July 2015; 1:30)
It really gets on my last nerve (55,016)
by Edward from USA
It really gets on my last nerve when some [censored] demand that biracial or multiracial people pick a side. All of a sudden, and according to some racist [censored] of past and present, the outcome of white mixed with any other race turns out to be whatever the other race is. Well, if you're mixed, you are [censored] mixed, period. If you're white... read more (Thursday 2 July 2015; 1:21)
Some beau (55,015)
by BLEUX ROGUE from U. S. A.
Funny how in the picture, were she's falling, you see Packard just chilling watching it all happen without even a slight bit of concern. And another thing MC, get your a** back to LV and rehearsals. You should've been there weeks ago instead of vacationing so long. Get to work girl, like the rest of us. (Wednesday 1 July 2015; 23:33)
