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 thinking how random it was for Mariah to mention that she was listening to this demo on Twitter sometime ago. It would be so amazing if she used it as a new single and any other unheard demos. I think that's been brought up before, but using unknown demos for singles would surely cause a frenzy. It would also be an amazing selling point for t... read more

Yes. I agree with you all about how she and her team are trying to make her more likable again and reminding us how great she is throughout these years. If you have noticed, she's been posting a lot of of throwback pictures lately on Instagram of Anytime You Need A Friend, Forever, and Butterfly and those pictures got so much more likes on Instagra... read more

This moment 10 years ago was my introduction into manhood. I was 13, I was horny, and Mariah was this sexy phoenix I never knew. Now she's my idol and I am a lamb for life baby.
