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".

Although I personally love her, I know “hood” version of Mariah (some fans/haters call "Hoodriah"/"Thugriah") isn’t for everyone. It’s just a matter of preference/tolerance for some fans. But what many people don’t seem to get is that Mariah was raised in New York; she was a first-hand witness to the infancy and growth of hip-hop/rap as a... read more

I love "Do you think of me". I remember that I played that song all the time in 1993 (luckily I had more than one CD-single with that track). I don't think Mariah's music was boring at the beginning. It was pure, and she sounded lovely. Without Tommy's work, I'm not sure that Mariah would be here today. Not as the big mega star she was.
