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.

I was blessed to be able to attend a Jason Mraz concert. I love him. Wow the performance of Birdland is awesome. If anyone has an mp3 of that, I would be ever so thankful for a copy. Some great videos out of Singapore, nice for MC and the fans.

Mariah's last great video was Touch My Body. She needs to work with directors who know and understand her like Brett Ratner and Paul Hunter. Or fashion photographers, Herb did My All and David LaChapelle did Loverboy. She needs to hire a stylist. She looked amazing during her stint on Idol and during The Emancipation of Mimi era when Andre Leon Tal... read more
