22nd Annual Ascap Awards
Superstars Mariah Carey and Usher joined Marilyn Bergman on stage to pay tribute
to their musical collaborator. Jermaine Dupri has worked with Carey on a number
of albums and has four songs on her current album The Emancipation of Mimi, which
is tearing up the Billboard charts.|
Dupri's work on Usher's multi-platinum album, Confessions, garnered four 2005
Grammy nominations for his songwriting and production work on chart-toppers,
"Burn", "Confessions Part II", and "My Boo". Dupri and Usher picked up awards
during the ceremony for their winning songs "Burn", and "Confessions Part II".
Mariah Carey and fellow artist Usher posed with music producer Jermaine Dupri
after he received the ASCAP Golden Note Award at the 22nd Annual ASCAP Pop Music
Awards at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California last night. Mariah
Carey and Usher celebrated with Jermaine Dupri and laughed at a joke made by music
producer Jermaine Dupri during the 22nd Annual ASCAP. Both Usher and Carey paid
tribute to Dupri before the producer received the ASCAP Golden Note Award.
Mariah Carey's recent hits, "It's Like That" and "We Belong Together", were
collaborations with Dupri. Moreover, Mariah also worked with Dupri on the #1
smash hit "Always Be My Baby" from Mariah's Daydream album. The first time Mariah
collaborated with Dupri was in 1994 with a remix of the "Never Forget You" single
from the Music Box album. Some other fans remember him from the 1998 hit "Sweetheart".

by G.G. from USA|
All I can say is that It's Like That wasn't a huge hit, but then we got The Emancipation Of Mimi. I agree with what others have said, I want some up-tempo numbers from Mariah. Like it or not, dance music is the in thing. MC can do R&B and still collaborate with some EDM or dance producers (not just on remixes). Avicii, David Guetta, Calvin Harris e... read more
