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.

I agree with Adam. MC needs someone directing her on certain things. For example, the song "Money" on the last album with Fabulous was just total crap (aside from MC's part which is always good). I can't believe that even made the album. It's so hard to listen to with that horn going off every second like a car alarm. Did they really think that was... read more

||New sound (49,491)
by Shelly from United States|
I want for her next album to be completely unexpected and different than anything she's ever done before. I'm thinking she could do a whole album with the musical genius Brian Wilson of Beach Boy fame. Or Robert Smith from The Cure. Mariah's voice is like truffles, it can make anything taste amazing, but becomes magical when you add it to a dish wo... read more
