What Can We Expect From The New Mariah Carey Album?

mariah-carey.jpgWe are so conflicted about Mariah Carey, but one thing we're certain of is that she's simply bursting with amusing blog fodder. The first single from the forthcoming Memoirs Of An Imperfect Angel is entitled "Obsessed" and is due to hit radio next Tuesday. The  most interesting tidbit to come about regarding MOAIA is that Mariah promises to deliver an album in the vein of Butterfly, which is easily one of her best. But then her collaborator The-Dream completely ruins it with this revelation:

 ". . . she just released a fire record in the building today. And we have been blasting it out all day. It's just f*cking retarded. I don't think anybody is going to expect her to come out punching like she is going to come out. But she got a record. It's going to light the blogs up too because you don't know who she talking about, what she talking about, but she talking about something. And remember The-Dream told you first. So you can start that up right now. Mariah Carey has a record, and somebody's going to be very upset. I said that."

If there's one thing we absolutely loved about Butterfly, it was the passive-aggressive responses to "haters". Oh wait, Butterfly didn't have any of that! So what could young Terious be talking about? HHDX suggests the target is Eminem who, even with Sacha Baron Cohen's package in his face, still manages to ruffle a few feathers. And is it possible that this fiery, upsetting, effing retarded record that will light up the blogs is "Obsessed"? We have a few more days to find out. On the upside, Mariah is working with Walter Afanasieff, who co-wrote some of her strongest ballads and hasn't been seen with Mariah since Glitter.

Memoirs Of An Imperfect Angel is due this September.

  1. Mimi is one of my favorite singers, so I really need her to come w/ a STRONG album, like 'Emancipation...', 'Daydream' & 'Butterfly'
    This "Obsessed" song better be the ish.

  2. I think the album will be very good; there isn't a Mariah album that I don't like, though obviously I like some better than others. I heard a 30 second snippet of a ballad called Hate U that's gonna be on the album and that sounded hot. I'm excited about hearing the new song "Obsessed"; this isn't the first time she's sung a song addressing Eminem, the song "Clown" from her 2003 album Charmbracelet was about him and how he lied about them hooking up.
    * I don't think the Walter A. thing is true. A few weeks back there was speculation she was working with him because someone with the twitter screename Walter Afanaiseff was talking about working with her but it turned out it was someone posing as him.

  3. @sasha - mariah confirmed herself that she was working with walter on her twitter.

  4. What the eff is he talking about... lol
    I think it's great that she's working with her original collaborator, Walter Afanasieff. My favorite MC songs are mostly ones he's been involved in. But they haven't worked together since Butterfly, so hopefully it's more than a return to the Butterfly sound, but a return to the old Mariah. Hip hop Mariah is good, but I miss the serious vocal acrobatics.

  5. *sigh*..Mimi - what an entertaining mess you are. as long as I dont have to watch her awkwardly gyrating in clothes that look like they are about to burst from the seams...i tend to like her drivel. So we'll see...
    The Eminem beef seems like old news to me tho...if she's looking for publicity she needs to just do a sex tape with Nick and call it a day.
    Slightly off topic: Obama cant say "special olympics" on Jay Leno but The Dream can call this record "retarded"?
    interesting.

  6. This is the first i've heard of her working with Walter A. again, can we get the source on that?? Love "The Roof" and "Breakdown" from the Buttefly album, so if she has anything remotely close to that on Memoirs I am hella excited!! MC don't waste your time on Eminem....

  7. I hope she can bring it like that again. "Butterfly" was the last Mariah album I was willing to spend money on. If she is working with Walter again, I WILL be a happy camper. NO MORE FORMULA ALBUMS, MIMI!!! *crossing fingers*

  8. OH MY GOSH... I MIGHT ACTUALLY GET THE RECORD I'VE BEEN WAITING FOR SINCE BUTTERFLY!! someone came to her senses... or got in her ear... or SOMETHING 'cause wally a, although sometimes gave her some sappy crap, gave her some GEMS as well (see "fourth of july" and "butterfly"). goodness. i'm 'bout to get excited up in this piece. i hope i'm not disappointed. if i am, i might put mariah down. for good. and i've been a fan since the first note of the first single way back in ninph grade...

  9. ...damn, that girl can come up with some flye titles for her albums.
