Mariah, Whitney in album race
Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston, old rivals in the pop music world, are racing to finish
albums and release them this year. Carey looks like she'll be the winner. According to my
sources, she's nearing the end of recording for a CD to follow up her mega-selling
"Emancipation of Mimi". Island/DefJam has set a November 20 release date.|
Carey has been recording all over the world, including on her beloved Isle of Capri, where
she was recently photographed cavorting on designer Roberto Cavalli's yacht. In fact,
she's been working her ample posterior off, and has as many as eight finished tracks in
the can, sources tell me. "She's working with all different producers and writers," a
source said. "And she sounds great."
Meanwhile, Houston is said to have two completed tracks finished and is getting ready for
a third. Her album still has no name or release date, but all systems continue to be "go"
according to insiders. The big news about Whitney is that she may be ready to quit living
in Los Angeles, where she's been for more than a year while kicking drugs and starting her
The talk now is that this fall, Houston will resume living in Atlanta, the place where
she had many painful experiences during her turbulent marriage to Bobby Brown.

||Atlantic residency (48,020)
by B from USA|
Mariah's album sold over 100,000 copies with no promo and its lead single was a hit. #Beautiful went Platinum. Mariah is still relevant. I think a residency would do more harm than good. It would make her look like a woman who is irrelevant and she's not. She needs to hire the trainer that whipped her into shape during the E=MC2 era and release a n... read more

||Mariah Carey and Taylor Swift's "1989" (48,019)
by Prince Lodestar from Indonesia|
Anyone notices some of Taylor Swift's songs on her new album are lightly inspired by Mariah Carey? From my POV, here are some songs:
1. Shake It Off, which is obviously, the title is the same (though the song is entirely different).
2. Style, the melody of the chorus reminds me a lot of Money ($ * / ...)
3. Stay, the "Stay" part is really simila... read more
