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.

I never knew people thought Faded was a Memoirs leftover. Except for a few songs Memoirs is not an album high on my list so I never would have caught any similarities. Faded is just deep for me. You can hear her hurt. IMO Faded is the realest song on Me I Am Mariah. I'm actually proud of Mike Will and yes I would love to see them work together agai... read more (Monday 4 May 2015; 16:00)

You're Mine (Eternal) peaked/debuted at #12 on the R&B/Hip-Hop Digital Songs and at #14 on the Hot R&B Songs chart. It was a modest hit. I love it. I love Infinity. I however hated Triumphant, MOAIA, and Glitter (not the ballads). I think this single is a hit. I think that like Touch My Body this single is a fun catchy single that makes her relevan... read more (Monday 4 May 2015; 15:50)

Personally, I hate top 40 music. Hate it. I stick with Mariah because I feel she makes interesting choices with her vocals. However, I really dislike all of her music in the past few years. Not because it's bad, because it's the same type of music she's been making for the past 15 years. My advice for the Mariah team is this. #1 Don't have an album... read more (Monday 4 May 2015; 15:38)
