Mariah Carey is no longer going to be a judge on American Idol – we thinks it’s because they can’t afford her with their plummeting ratings. But, rest assured the grand diva is not disappearing anywhere. She is about to embark on a world tour while Nicki Minaj still struggles to hit the #1 spot on the charts.
One thing we found out about Mariah on American Idol is her vast knowledge of our century’s musical catalogue. She was singing almost every other tune on the show. Well, here Mariah commemorates another diva – Billie Holiday. Click below to listen to the original version. Continue reading →
You’ve all watched the first episode of American Idol’s season 12, however, this project is not the only one up Mariah Carey’s sleeve in 2013. As most of you know, Mariah Carey has been working hard at the studio to deliver to follow up to her last album. Yes lambs, Mariah has some new beats and they will probably come our way real soon.
The debut single will most probably be performed on an American Idol Season 12 episode.
We have an intuitive feeling that “Triumphant (Get ‘Em)” will not be on the album.
Nicki Minaj is not on the album.
MC said about her fourteenth studio album: “I’m collaborating with a lot of my favorite people but the main thing is [that] I’m not trying to follow any particular trend, I want it to be well received. I want to stay true to myself and the music that I love and make the fans happy”.
There are rumors circulating that Beyonce had allegedly teamed up with Mariah Carey on a track titled ?Further Up? for the new project. No word as to the validity of this story and/or it will be featured on which of the divas album. Mariah Carey has a project coming out around the same time in early Spring to coincide with all the American Idol hoopla.
Expect a big ballad (this is just an educated guess).
The album is apparently slated for a March 2013 release!
We will update more with more info on this post as it comes! Bookmark!
Mariah worked with Jermaine and Brian Michael Cox ”We did like ten songs. I don’t know how many songs are going to stick, but Mariah is like our sister. We love her and she calls. She always calls and a lot of artists don’t call. Mariah is one that consistently is like “If we’ve worked before, we can work again.” I love Mariah for that because she’s a true friend. We did a bunch of songs and I think four or five may stick. We’re excited about it.”
DJ Clue recently confirmed on Twitter, in response to a fan’s tweet, that he will be working with Mariah on her new album: “@DJCLUE:She hit me yesterday about that..so Yes RT @ThiagoHonorato: @DJCLUE will you be working with Mariah in her new album? I hope so.”

Randy Jackson on Mariah: Going back to Mariah for a second — when can we expect an album? ”We’ve got some hot new music, and there’s gonna be a single some time soon. There’ll be an album as well. We’re talking about a world tour. There’s a lot of stuff going on.”
David Morales has hinted at a collaboration with Mariah Carey on Twitter. Let’s hope it’s a song this time and not just a remix!
In May, Mariah announced that she has written and recorded a song called “Mesmerized” for the Lee Daniels film The Paperboy. It is not clear if this song will be on Mariah’s new record, or released separately.
Grammy nominated hip-hop, R&B and contemporary music producer/rapper Hit Boy (Chauncey Hollis) and Mariah tweeted that they are in the studio together.
Allegedly, It is rumored that Mariah and Alicia Keys worked on a song together.
Also, allegedly, R. Kelly might be doing something with her.
A picture of Mariah Carey with The-Dream has surfaced on Twitter, prompting rumors that the two are working together again.
“I want to go sooner, but I guess it wouldn’t be ready until around January, somewhere around there.” Carey continued: “I wanted to put another single out, a ballad. I love it, but I’m still writing, I’m still working. So, you never know what it’s going to end up being”.
