NEWS: Mariah Carey’s first single is NOT “Obsessed”

MCHere’s a quote from Showbiz411.com with the important parts bolded:
“Mariah Carey—despite idiotic postings elsewhere—is gearing up for her big new CD release.
Mariah feels so strongly about “Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel” that she’s even re-hired the PR powerhouse that made her second-stage career such a success. She’s back with Cindi Berger of PMK HBH. It was Berger who made her “Emancipation of Mimi” the biggest hit of Mariah’s career. Smart move.
Of course, that means both Mariah and Whitney Houston are now being repped by the same PR company. PMK’s Kristen Foster is handling Whitney with my old pal, Jill Fritzo.
“Memoirs” was scheduled for an August 25th release, then moved to September 15th. Now it’s set for September 29th. If the regular Grammy deadline had been in place—September 30th—Mariah would have made it. But the unfortunate early deadline of August 31st cut her off. So she has some slack time to get “Memoirs” just right.
The first single from Mariah’s CD will not be “Obsessed”—that was just a summer trifle, and it was a lot of fun. The real first official single is said to be a powerhouse ballad along the lines of “Vision of Love.”

I know a lot of people who’ll be happy about the lead single being a powerhouse ballad.

Little Boots, the lesser Lady GaGa, this is her official first single, it’s catchy as hell and definitely a highlight in pop music so far this year.

Song Of The Day

MimiSong: I Like It (Feat. Buccweet)
Artist: Mariah Carey
Album: Heat: The Duets
In short: This is one of the songs I have recently found, it’s from some mixtape or something, Mimi doesn’t sing in this song, but she only has a hook that’s bound to get stuck in your head for DAYS.

Song Of The Day

MCSong: Circles
Artist: Mariah Carey
Album: The Emancipation Of Mimi
In short: One of the best moments on Mimi. I wish she’d do more of this, and less of the “whisper register” that she’s now working on. I still hate the new album’s title and think it’s beyond silly, even for Mariah.

I Like It, You Don’t: I Wish You Well – Mariah Carey

emcOk this should be fun, i’ll make this an ongoing posting habit, under this “topic”, I’ll post songs that I like/love that nobody likes, and I always get teased for liking it. This first one that came to mind is Mariah Carey’s I Wish You Well. It’s one of my most heard songs on her album, I don’t care what anybody says, I love that song, and thinks it’s one of the better songs on the album! I’ve always hated the original cover, even though the picture is stunning, the colors, fonts, and overall styling was horrid, so I settled for this fanmade one, which looks way MUCH better than the original, anyways take a listen to the song.. if you want to:

frRight Round (Feat. Ke$ha) – Flo Rida [Download]
Okay, I caved, it’s catchy, what can I say? I love how Kesha’s voice sounds exactly like Katy Perry, maybe they’re using the same autotune effect?

Her high notes in the background are to die for, get it!

Very smooth, very slick, very relaxing, very Sade.

“GIVE IT TO ME”, infectious is what I would say.

randyWhat Am I So Afraid Of? (Feat. Trisha, Keke and Kiley) – Randy Jackson [Download]
This is the female version of One Republic’s “Apologize”, it’s in the same vein as that, great song!

jaguarPlay The Field – Jaguar Wright [Download]
The list started on a high-note, and that’s how it’s gonna end. Discover a new artist if you’ve never heard of her, her voice is crazy.

Song Of The Day

TD
Song: My Love (Feat. Mariah Carey)
Artist: The-Dream
Album: Love/Money
In short: The producer behind mega-hits Umbrella, Touch My Body, and lastly Single Ladies has his own album out this week, I haven’t listened thoroughly to it yet, but I had to listen to this first because or Ms. Carey. Her vocals are on point, the annunciation of “bye, bye” in her verse is immense. Obviously I only like the song for Mariah, not him. I believe producers should stay away from a microphone.

A Favorite: Makin’ It Last All Night (What It Do) – Mariah Carey

emancipationultraplatinumWhat a hefty title. When I first heard this along with Don’t Forget About Us, not knowing that the latter was the single to be taken from the platinum edition, I thought this would be the single taken, but I was wrong, just like I was wrong with Britney’s ‘I Just Begun’/’Do Somethin” and Christina’s “Genie 2.0’/’Dynamite’. I still think that this is much better than ‘Don’t Forget About Us’, even though I love that one, but this song has that sexy Mimi side that I love. Much as I love lovely-dovey Mariah, I ‘d take sexy sultry Mimi over her anytime of the day.
