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.

Andrew, I read Tommy's "Hitmaker: The Man And His Music" to have a better understanding about the development of Mariah's career and what went on between them. Even though the book is not centered on Mariah, it gives a good insight about the situation. It was interesting to find out what her reaction was to losing to all her Grammy nominations back... read more

Damn I wish I was a New Yorker right now. The first annual set of Christmas shows in December are going to be amazing. Remember the Merry Christmas II You TV special? I think it's amazing that Mariah will be allowing fans to see her during her favorite time of year. Every year during a time when AIWFCIY goes to #1 every year and she's in the forefr... read more
