The-Dream turned Carey duet fantasy into reality

R&B singer/songwriter The-dream hatched a cunning plan to snag Mariah Carey for his song My Love - by spreading news of the duet before he'd even approached the superstar. The-Dream - the lyricist behind Rihanna's smash hit single Umbrella - reveals he penned the lyrics of the track with the Heartbreaker singer in mind, but had no idea whether Carey or her Island Def Jam label boss Antonio "L.A." Reid would approve the duet.
So the star began to name-check Carey in his interviews and talk about the joint project - and that prompted Reid to get in touch and help turn the hitmaker's dreams into a reality. He tells XXL magazine, "I wrote that record and immediately thought, this is a great record for me and Mariah, if she wants to do it. The next morning I had an interview, and I'm like, 'Yeah, I got Mariah on this record called My Love' - knowing damn well I hadn't even asked her to get on it. L.A. (Reid) was like, 'What the hell is he talking about?' But they called M.C. (Carey), and she got the record and was like, 'I f**kin' love it.' I'm like, 'My hunch was right, I just spoke it into existence.' "

Mara, so true (47,670) by Orkun from The Netherlands

Mariah can only be compared to herself since she is in a league she rules. No one can deny that. She is definitely improving and you calling this a "rebirth" is very much in place. She lips less and getting back in shape like 3 steps at a time. Perfect? No. Better? Oh yes. To me, it looks like she is back on earth. It's sweet that Sharon Osbourne d... read more
