Mariah Carey’s remix album, titled Angel’s Advocate, has been pushed back to March 9th, 2010. It had been slated for February, but they’ve pushed it back.
Now, I am gonna say that it was pushed back since they just laid off staff at Universal Music Group — staff that of course would be utilized to go out and “buy” the album; but the real reason is probably because “Precious” also hits DVD that day and she’s also going on a tour of the same name around the same time.
The original just went gold — and I just read that Rihanna went platinum. How/why/who? LOL.
I won’t be paying for this remix album or this tour — this is not the 90’s and there is no ODB in sight so I’m good. As far as the tour — come on, really? I’d rather pull out my MTV Unplugged live of Mariah’s from a grip ago and call it a wrap. Of course the lambs are gonna come out and support. I eat lambchops for dinner though! Pow!
Are Mary and Mariah doing a remix of sorts? That’s gonna sound like Bert & Ernie playing with a See ‘N Say. Lawd. More after the jump!
Featuring remixed versions of songs from her recent Gold album “Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel,” “Angels Advocate” is being fronted by the lead singles “Angels Cry” with Ne-Yo and a remix to “Up Out My Face” with rapper Nicki Minaj. Videos were shot for both singles and are expected to be released soon.
“Working with Mariah was a learning experience. Her level of professionalism is almost double what mine is and the thing is, you won’t expect it,” Ne-Yo said of his recent collaboration with Carey. “Normally, when you see Mariah, you just see the glitz and the glamour, and she’s a diva, she’s fabulous. But when it’s time to work, she focuses and gets the job done.”
Remixes of “Obsessed” Gucci Mane and “H.A.T.E. U,” with Mane, OJ Da Juiceman, and Big Boi were previously serviced to radio. “Angels Advocate” is also expected to feature collaborations with T-Pain, Trey Songz, and Mary J. Blige. (Source)
