SAY SOMETHIN'

"Say somethin' " is the 6th commercial single off the album "The emancipation of Mimi". About.com wrote about the song: "The song doesn't amount to much more than a midtempo seduction, but with the near perfect vocal match of Mariah Carey and rapper Snoop Dogg nothing more is needed. Carey was one of the first mainstream pop artists to openly express her love for hip hop and collaborate with hip hop artists. Now that these collaborations are the norm Mariah pulls together the Neptunes, arguably the top production team in the business, and Snoop Dogg, already a rap living legend and still one of the most distinctive voices in hip hop. The combination is magic. You will be singing this tune and dancing along for months to come."

In the clip, Mariah and Pharrell Williams are a superstar couple, trying to find romantic interludes when they're not being chased by the paparazzi in his Maserati - at least, that's what the video's treatment called for. But on the first day of the shoot, director Paul Hunter had to contend not just with his fake paparazzi, hired for the scene, but real ones as well, who chased after the pair on scooters.

"That's just a regular day in the life for Mariah, probably," Williams said. "I'm a low-key guy, so there's no paparazzi under the studio console, or in my apartment, or jumping out of my pool. I'm just not into it. So it's weird when you have these people running up, especially in Paris - they're on Vespas, doing wheelies, and it's wild."

The chase being real, it made it that much easier for Carey and Williams to get into character as a couple looking to get away from it all. For one of their escapes, the two frolic on the Le Pont de Paris bridge overlooking the river Seine. The next destination point required clearing out Louis Vuitton's flagship store on the Champs-Elysées, so they could have some private shopping with Carey modeling her favorite outfits while Williams watches and waits. She also tries on a massive amount of shoes, while Williams plays piano on her legs to entertain himself.

Snoop is featured on the song but not in the Paris scenes. His part in the clip was shot separately in Los Angeles. Mariah said: "We love Snoop and we wish he had been here, but I think shooting him in L.A. will be good because we'll have more time, more control. He probably would have gotten really mobbed in the streets here anyway."
