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.' "

Stay seated.

Whistle notes (47,529) by Mirage_Nunez from America

Randy, I actually personally know many people that think Mariah has lost her whistle register and that she never hits them live. As fans we know that if one thing Mariah can do, it's whistle, but I don't think the haters, the general public, or people who like her in passing know that. Which leads me to believe the video is redeeming in some way. I... read more
