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.' "

Mariah will still be arriving in Vegas tomorrow. I'm thinking that since she won't premiere the video on the 27th that we might be getting a live performance of Infinity instead. Either that or she's going to be releasing a lyric video.
