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.

The "problem" here on this messagesboard is that some fans are defending MC, because she did already so much for us, from the '90's til now, we never really had to miss her. Between studio albums, there was always another album. MTV Unplugged, Merry Christmas, Number Ones with new tracks, The Greatest Hits, MCIIY. She writes her own songs wich her ... read more

I live in Amsterdam and the other day I was with a piano player and asked him if he knew how to play any Mariah Carey song. He said no but ended up saying he could try Hero (which he did from memory). For a lot of people it's Hero. She sings it more than any other song and the public loves it. To me that bridge is the most epic musical thing I ever... read more
