she looks like a cartoon but it's hot

I heard the song "we belong together" off the new album and I really like it, one of her best songs in years.

hmm...

she looks like a weird blend of Shakira and Beyoncé... especially the hair. and she is working the Photoshop tan.

I like it but it's really monochromatic... the text, her dress, her skin are all the same color. I'm not big on gold on black... I think it usually looks cheap.

Then again, when I think about her "Rainbow" cover, all the colors were too much and reminded me of a kid's book.

It's very adult, simple and classy but I would have used silver to go with the black background instead of gold. Maybe silver was too reminiscent of "Glitter"... ;)

It looks really great. However, it looks nothing like Mariah :unsure:

Mariah = Trying too hard

:rolleyes:

It's terrible because Mariah really is at a crossroads in her career. She's not as young as Ciara but she's not as old as Anita Baker. She can't do her old stuff because people have moved on but she sounds silly doing Ciara-ish music. :shrug:

Cool cover, althought it's been 150% computerly altered.:lol:

The font of her name is on the cover reminds me of the Daydream cover.

If only the music could be as good:sad:

Hopefully this album will have some good songs and some nice ballads. Mariah is kidding herself, she got famous on her ballads, she's not a rap star.

"It's Like That" is a catchy song but a subpar R&B-hip/hop track compared to today's top artists.

It's hot.

I also heard "We Belong Together" this morning on the way to work- she was on KTU for promo. It's her first power ballad to showcase her voice in years.

She looks too much like Beyonce on it.

I wish she'd go back to her roots, do some R&B like her first 2 CD's. This new stuff is shitty :o

OMG, Mariah ... don't copy Beyonce - you are unique yourself!

What is the story behind the titel? Mariah used to have short and well picked album titels in the past.

When will it be released - although her first albums were more my style i still want to have this in my collection.

The album is released on the 4th April in Europe, a week earlier in asia and a week later in america.

As for the cover i love it, but it does seem overly airbrushed. I think its a good cover though and she does seem emancipated LOL

As for the story behind the title apprently LA Ried suggested it, as her nick name is Mimi (why does she give all her 'private' names away like Honeybfly and Mimi :confused:) Personally after, Daydream, Butterfly, Rainbow, Glitter and Charmbraclet, I didnt think she could get any camper and superflous but she managed somehow.

April 4th international date
april 12th usa date

I love this cover. It does reminds me a lil bit of Beyonce but thats the photographers fault since he worked with Bee as well.
As for the new material, I'm really excited about it. It's like that is a fantastic uptempo song and this new song is a smooth midtempo r&B jam! Say something is a throwback to the oldschool music mixed with a contemporary sound perfectly suited for the summer. It's going to be the hottest r&b album of the year yall! She has said this is her best album vocally since a long time. And I like the new title as well. Before this she used to have tho shitty one word girly titles like Rainbow glitter and Butterfly. The emancipation stands for something strong, she's leaving all the shit behind and you can take it or leave it.
I know I'll take it :worship:

So now anyone this their arms up and leg turned out is a Beyonce wannabe? Whatever. I doubt she even saw that photo. I actually think Mariah's pose is a hell of a lot better.

I ahve to agree actually I think the photo is a lot better, but I am biased to a point (although I love me Yoncey)

OMG I :hearts: it. I have every Mariah album and I've never seen her do a cover like this one.

Pfft about her copying Beyonce LMAO. Half the younger aritist who have come out now, including Beyonce have Mariah to thank for paving the way and showing them how to do it. Rappers with singers was totally Mariah's, like Fantasy with ODB, and she was R&B well before Beyonce or JLO.

And you know what, as hot as Beyonce's career has become, her music achievements are far far below Mariah's. I'll consider Beyonce in Mariah's league when she can muster at least 5 #1's.

Maybe off topic, but why on earth has she decided to call herself Mimi??
Such an old fashioned name. I don't think that was her intention.

in terms of image, she's so copying beyonce. and the editing of the cover is so obvious...

I don't like it because it doesn't look like Mariah. I'm all for stylized CD covers but it should at least look like the artist.

My favorite Mariah cover:

I totally disagree...this is not the first album that shows mariah looking slim and standing...

Remember #1's ? That was way before Beyonce's album....

I really wish she would sing again though and stop the whispering bullshit.

She's stopped all that in her new song :D

Don't know whats going to be on the album, though.
