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.

In retrospect, I wish MC would've released her album back in 2013. The music climate was better. Randy was still her manager. I know everyone thinks that radio deal was made by her label, but seeing their lack of action makes me believe that it was Randy. She had the success of Beautiful and could've kept her TV appearances and added some more for ... read more

Because of the similarities, same producer and my own jaw injury and years of rehab, trying to get control of my breath, I finally understand what the queen meant when she said she "sings straight up through her cords". When you look at the Arianna videos, where she warms up with breath trills on her lips, just like all "voice teachers" commonly pr... read more
