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.

My wish is for Mariah to work with Bruno Mars. I would love to hear them sing a song together. Bruno's When I Was Your Man is like the male equivalent of We Belong Together.

You're on the rampage, lol. Mariah Carey deserves respect. She's been doing this for almost twentyfive years. I think the reason she isn't taken as seriously as Aretha and Barbra is because she's good looking. Think about it. Read any interview about Mariah and the first thing the interviewer says is she's beautiful. Mariah has been consistently su... read more

I wish Mariah would work with Lady Gaga. She's a very creative person and songwriter. I've always wanted Mariah to work with Pink. I think their voices would sound awesome together, a beautiful contrast. Pink did start out in R&B. I also think Mariah should work with Bruno Mars. All three of these singers also write, are very talented and pretty po... read more
