Nine Years Ago Today... // 11:37 AM EST Updated by Liron

On September 30th 1995, Mariah Carey made music history. Her single "Fantasy" debuted at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and Mariah became the first female artist in history to have ever accomplished that.

Divas, Songbirds and More // 11:36 AM EST Updated by Liron

Thanks to many of these women, the term "diva" has become part of modern vernacular. Though a few people will use the term reverently for legendary performers such as Aretha Franklin and Tina Turner, the word usually refers to a woman with not only great pipes, but the attitude, body and wardrobe to make a complete diva package. Some artists may shun this image, but most embrace it and the level of fame it represents.

Of course, not all women of pop aspire to this type of attention; Alanis Morissette shot to fame with her emotional, gritty and angry songs. Avril Lavigne walked the line between pop and alternative, but dressed the part of a garage-punk princess.

Diva or not, however, most of these ladies are attractive, comfortable in the spotlight and have muscled diaphragms.

Mariah Carey and her distinctive five-octave voice dominated the '90s. She topped the charts with smash-hit ballads, R&B and dance songs, even writing her own material -- still a unique boast for most pop stars. However, recent times have not been so kind to Mariah; health problems, a laughable movie and low-selling albums have tarnished her pedestal.

Mariah essentials:

"Mariah Carey": Her Grammy-winning debut.

"Emotions": The title track became a record fifth consecutive hit single.

"#1s": All her biggest hits.

Mariah Mentions // 12:00 PM EST Updated by Lynn

-- From The Orion: “Now is too soon for '90s nostalgia. I too love the '90s. But that's because it feels like it was yesterday and I haven't quite let go. Mariah Carey is also, unfortunately, still around. She might not be belting out hits like "Someday" in her black leotard and acid-wash jeans anymore, but she still manages to make headlines.”

-- From UK Flava: Hip-hop industry satire Death of A Dynasty, which drew rave reviews when it premiered at the prestigious Annual Tribeca Film Festival in Manhattan last year, sees Dash once again stepping into the director’s chair. With a host of celebrity friends to call upon Dash has coaxed the likes of Chloe Sevigny, Carson Daly and The Sopranos Jamie Lynn Sigler into guest appearances, not to mention a virtual who’s who of hip hop from P. Diddy, Busta Rhymes and Dr. Dre to Mariah Carey, Q-Tip and Flexmaster Flex.

-- From Laksamana: Grammy award winning Canadian pop/rock star Alanis Morissette has canceled her upcoming Jakarta concert due to concerns that terrorists could strike again in Indonesia. But some prominent performers have played in Indonesia recently, including veteran German soft metal band The Scorpions, British boyband Blue, US hard rock-metal band Linkin Park, American diva Mariah Carey, American pop veterans Toto, American rap-metal band Korn, veteran British rockers Deep Purple, Spanish crooner Enrique Iglesias and Euro-West Indian disco legends Boney M.

-- From MSNBC: Joss Stone offers up herself up "Mind, Body & Soul" on her sophomore disc. The not-so-pop singer finds the emotional climax in every song on the 14-track disc. Her husky voice is both eloquent and vulnerable, more Taylor Dane than Mariah Carey. And Stone’s vocal acrobatics are intentional, not showy.

-- From MSNBC: Whatever side of the political civil war you happen to be on, it’s hard to deny that the present climate has served as a call to arms among pop musicians. Hip-hop entrepreneur Sean “P. Diddy” Combs formed an organization called Citizen Change - which includes Grammy winners Mary J. Blige and Mariah Carey among its supporters - to light a fire under young voters.

-- From Omaha World Herald: Tiny dogs show star power. The paparazzi just caught Demi Moore buying her tiny pup a "Mama's Boy" T-shirt and Britney Spears shopping with Lacy, her Maltese. P. Diddy, Jessica Simpson, Justin Timberlake and Mariah Carey all have toy dogs. The recent deluge of celebrity-with-dog images has increased interest in the tiny-dog category, people in the doggy business say. But they note that the dogs always have been popular.

-- From The Straits Times: Richard Marx gets tapes from wannabes 'but most are no good'. But his voice perks up considerably when he talks about a recent find. 'Her name is Jill Zadeh - she's from Los Angeles and is a bartender. We're shopping around for a record deal. I think she has a voice as great as Mariah Carey's,' he says, letting on that he has a deal with Sony to ferret out new artists.

From PhilStar: Rachelle Ann Go, Filipino Idol - Star For A Night champion had her own moment at the full-packed Golden Center for the Performing Arts at Queens College, Queens, New York for the Night of the Champions concert, doing a Sharon Cuneta Medley, segueing to Mariah Carey’s Through The Rain (Rachelle’s winning piece at the Star for a Night grand finals) and Don’t Cry Out Loud.

-- From Canada's National Post: Mariah Carey complains about her Maybach sedan: "The vanity mirrors are way too small." Maybachs start at about US$320,000, and if you've never heard of the brand until now, my guess is you'll never own one. Personally I couldn't even afford to buy the vanity mirror.

Size Matters // 2:13 AM EST Updated by Lynn

Madonna and Jennifer Lopez both own Maybachs, which start at $318,000, and they don't complain about the size of the mirrors. But Mariah Carey, who loves everything else about the luxury sedan - from twin DVD screens to the champagne fridge fitted with sterling silver flutes - grumbled, "The vanity mirrors are way too small." The songbird is in her Maybach in L.A. this week to shoot the video for "U Make Me Wanna," the hot new track by Jadakiss featuring Mariah's five-octave voice. The video is directed by Sanna Hamri, who shot the video for Mariah's "Bringin' on the Heartbreak."

"Stay The Night" to be released November 15? // 2:34 PM EST Updated by Will

Last month, Cool Clarity, an online music forum based in the United Kingdom, announced that Mariah's first single from her new album would be "Stay The Night" featuring Kanye West and that it would be in stores on October 11 (in the UK).

A few weeks later, it was removed from the release schedule, but it has re-appeared this week under a different date. According to the site, "Stay The Night" will now be released November 15.

In related news, the Japanese leg of HMV says Mariah's new single will be released on November 3 in Japan. They have also added a description of the single to their website. Please keep in mind there has been no official confirmation as of yet.

Mariah still on for November 10 release? // 8:03 AM EST Updated by Will

Despite reports that Mariah's upcoming album has been pushed back to early next year, nearly all Japanese music stores are still reporting a regional release date of November 10.

The majority of those stores, including Tower Records and HMV, also just recently updated the price of the album, changing it to 2,548 yen ($22.99).

It also appears that "Misty Moon", the song Mariah recorded for use in Coca-Cola Japan's Sokenbicha Tea commercials, will be included on the upcoming album as a bonus track exclusively for Japan. Instead of being tacked on to the regular tracklist, however, the song will be packaged with the album as a limited edition 3" CD single.

Bellamy and Daly recall Mariah Carey // 7:18 AM EST Updated by Will

Comedian Bill Bellamy was on 'Last Call with Carson Daly' on Friday night where they recalled first working together at MTV when Carson was a newbie on the network, and the first big guest on Carson's 'MTV Live' program: Mariah Carey.

Carson: When I got to New York when I was hired, it was me. I was the new guy and they really didn't know what to do with me. They gave me this hour show, 'MTV Live', and it was just me and it was kind of stupid. And then they booked Mariah Carey. And I was brand new and she was a huge name. And it was like, what do we do, and they brought Bill in. And so, the show was so incredibly -- it was awkward for, well for me, a little bit, because you were like the man. And so it was me, and it was just like, "All right, welcome to the show. It's great to have you here. And we have a huge guest today, Mariah Carey's here. And Bill Bellamy." Do you remember --
Bill: Yeah, and you were like --
Carson: And I would just be like, "Uh and, Bill, you know Mariah, of course." And Bill's like, "Thanks, Carson. Mariah, what's up, baby? How you doing? I'm sorry I couldn't call you back and how's your dad and how's your mom?" And this was Mariah and Bill here, and after ten minutes of talking, he would just be like, "That's funny, man. Ain't that funny, Carson?" And I go, "That is, Bill. We'll be right back with more of Bill Bellamy and Mariah Carey." [Laughter] That was the whole show.
Bill: We had Mariah before she went crazy, man. [Laughter]
Carson: Yeah, she went crazy.
Bill: We had the 100% -- she wasn't even crazy yet. Did we even know?
Carson: No, there was no early warning signs.
Bill: She wasn't like buggin'.

News Tidbits // 7:14 AM EST Updated by Will

-- Mariah was seen at LAX (Los Angeles International Airport) earlier this week by a fan's co-worker. Mariah quickly went through her terminal and drove off in a limo. She was apparently arriving to film the video for "U Make Me Wanna", her new collaboration single with Jadakiss.

-- Mariah, pictured in her "Vote or Die" shirt, is now the featured model for the women's babydoll top at citizenchange.com.

-- The finalists' performance of Mariah's "One Sweet Day" on the Indonesian talent search show Akademi Fantasi came at odd timing. Earlier in the afternoon, beloved Indonesian actress Sukma Ayu died after being in a coma for three months. The performance became so emotional that even last season's winner Tia, who has listed Mariah as her main influence, sang along to the song from the audience.

-- From Pop Dirt: Kylie Minogue and Christina Aguilera have been voted into the ultimate fantasy girl band, alongside British pop stars Nicole Appleton, Rachel Stevens and Blondie's Debbie Harry. The five women came top of a poll by British men's magazine Nuts, in which 7,000 readers took part. They also voted for their worst imaginable girl band, which included Ex-Spice Girl stars Victoria Beckham and Geri Halliwell, Celine Dion, Mariah Carey and Madonna.

-- From World Of Britney: Ranging from Madonna to Mariah Carey, the most successful artists of the millennium, Britney Spears is just going through a phase that is seen by all of us.

-- From Greeley Tribune: Bjork is no pop princess. Just compare the movie careers: Britney took an uneventful role in "Crossroads," a sorry picture that belongs in the VHS bargain bins. Mariah Carey (a great singer with mediocre work) took the lead role in "Glitter," another terrible movie. When Bjork decided to make a movie, she made "Dancer in the Dark". The movie is a classic, a brilliant picture, and Bjork is amazing.

-- From The Hollywood Reporter: Hey kids, let's put on a show. That was the feel of this third tour of winners and finalists from Fox's "American Idol." It was amateur time, karaoke night. No wonder the tour sponsor is Pop Tarts. La Toya London's take on Mariah Carey's "My All" mimicked Carey's worst vocal tendencies. In contrast, Jennifer Hudson came off more in control, while Jasmine Trias oozed sexuality onstage whenever she appeared, even if her cover of Whitney Houston's "How Will I Know" lacked the original's innocent fun.

-- From Press World: Mariah Carey, Michael Jackson, and even J. Lo have coaches - people they consult with about various aspects of their careers. Now it's time for the everyday person trying to break into the music business to have the same opportunity. The launch of Inside the Music Business: Personal Coaching with Eric Kline (www.musicbizbook.com) is a remarkable educational and real-life strategic approach for those trying to break into the music industry.

Mariah Mentions
-- From Sydney Morning Herald: American Idol didn't snatch the reality Emmy. Like Survivor and The Apprentice, Idol is a phenomenon in the US. What's truly phenomenal is the American audience's willingness to hear Mariah Carey ballads week after week and still manage to whip up some hysteria. It's a highly polished, finely calibrated talent quest. Our own second series (Ten, Sunday, Monday, Thursday) has all the formatted ingredients for success and a little something that the US mothership is missing. Our contestants take risks.

-- From Herald Sun: Choreographers Kevin Maher and Teresa Epinosa are in Melbourne this weekend conducting dancing workshops for Australia's budding stars at the Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre. The choreographers have worked with the who's who of the music industry, including Mariah Carey, Basement Jaxx, Fatboy Slim and George Michael.

-- From Jamaica Observer: The song “Goodies” by 18 year-old newcomer Ciara featuring rapper Petey Pablo is the 11th combination song featuring a female singer and a rapper to reach number one on the US Billboard pop singles chart. In 1999, “Hearbreaker” by Mariah Carey featuring Jay-Z, went to number one, while in 2001 Jennifer Lopez teamed with Ja Rule on “I'm Real” (3rd and 4th, respectively).

What Fashion Label // 10:18 AM EST Updated by Lynn

From Kylie’s raunchy Love Kylie lingerie to Jay-Z and Damon Dash’s Roc-A-Wear (once promoted by a certain Mrs. Beckham), celebrity clothing ranges can prove to a lucrative side project for pop music’s elite.

The latest megastar to add a new string to her bow is the unlikely fashion icon singer/songwriter Mariah Carey. The 34-year-old "Through The Rain" hitmaker has just launched a range of accessories under her own Automatic Princess brand name. The range of bracelets and necklaces, have hit Claire’s Accessories stores in limited quantity across America and plans are apparently afoot to launch the range in their global stores early next year, if USA sales are strong.

Carey, currently recording the follow up to 2002’s Charmbracelet album, has been spotted sporting Automatic Princess branded jewellery and clothing both in the video for last year’s summer smash "I know What You Want," with rapper Busta Rhymes, and during her sell out UK Charmbracelet Tour. She has previously announced plans to extend the brand to include children’s clothing and a range of children’s books about a bi-racial orphan.

Much derided for her revealing outfits, Carey may initatially seem an unlikely fashion icon. However her liking for jeans with the waistband cut off and football jersey-design dresses have sparked a number of fashion trends in the US. No doubt she’ll be hoping Automatic Princess is equally popular.

Well who can say we won't be asking for the latest "AP" collection in a few years time?

Mariah’s puppy love // 1:27 PM EST Updated by Will

Mariah Carey has had her heart broken more than once, but when it comes to Jack, her Jack Russell terrier, it’s always been a match made in heaven. He has spent a lot of years making cameos in many of her videos, hanging out with her on tour and even joining the singer in the recording studio.

Like his mama, Jack also likes to look his best, enjoying ultra-luxe grooming from Karen’s for People Pets, one of New York’s most prestigious pet grooming salons (prices start at $90). And Mariah, 34, keeps Jack on his best behavior with the help of celebrity pet trainer-to-the-stars Bash Dibra, who reportedly charges $200 an hour.

This spunky terrier is happiest when kicking back with Mariah at home in New York on his $375 Barks Pup Avenue designer chaise lounge and checking out his growing fanbase online. “There’s one girl in Japan who dresses up like my dog and comes to my concerts,” says the singer. “That’s pretty amusing!”

Sounds gross, but colonics can “help you lose one to three pounds in a day,” reports Susan Lombardi of We Care Health Center and Retreat in Desert Hot Springs, California.

They have all forked over $3,500 for the We Care’s one-week juice fast and daily colonic, “to flush out their systems and rid themselves of unwanted toxins,” Lombardi says of the program. “Afterward, you gain three times the energy, and your skin just glows.”

From MSNBC: Mariah Carey is turning a song she originally sang for a Japanese Tea commercial into a single on her next CD.

From Rolling Stone: Aretha Franklin’s next record will reportedly include duets with Mariah Carey and Gloria Estefan. The singer also recently formed an independent label, Aretha Records, to put out her future albums and possibly those of other artists.

From Washington Post: In her first CD in 10 years "My Everything," Anita Baker's sound hasn't aged a day. Hers is one of the great voices, husky, rich and plush. And that can be a problem, because great voices -- Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Chaka Khan -- aren't frequently matched with quality music.

Mariah to do a sitcom? // 2:12 AM EST Updated by Lynn

The comeback trail might include a sitcom for Mariah Carey, who flew into New York Tuesday for a meeting with UPN heads. "She's very funny and has a lot of acting talent," one insider said. In an effort to explain Mariah's last acting stint, the bomb "Glitter," the insider said: "It was a simple project that was taken out of her hands and made into a disaster." Carey's new album with Island/Def Jam, which has tracks with Kanye West on it, should be ready later this year. A rep for Carey declined comment.

Mariah Carey's new album // 6:41 PM EST Updated by Will

Mariah Carey has been hard at work on her upcoming album on Island/Def Jam. "She really is expecting this album to put her back in the mix," a label exec said. "The album has your usual Mariah tunes with a twist and many surprises." One of those surprises could be a duet featuring rapper Nelly. The track "Misty Moon" was originally recorded for a Japanese tea commercial but now could see the light of day here in the States. Mariah is also enjoying some success with Jadakiss's new single "U Make Me Wanna."

Mariah Mania In Manila // 6:09 PM EST Updated by Will

Filipino fans got one good raison d'être in spending more time in front of their TV sets this time as Mariah Carey's songs is presently re-becoming a proverbial tune specifically on every, if not all, local musical variety shows in the Philippines.

In fact earlier today, 3 Mariah hits have been once again showcased on ASAP Mania during their 'Divas' segment. Led by Philippines' premiere performer Gary Valenciano, the segment fired up with his performance of Whenever You Call which later shared on stage by local divas Zsa-Zsa Padilla and Anna Fegi. It was then followed with the song One Sweet Day, which Gary V. collaborated with the two new finalists from 'Born Diva', ABS-CBN's newest reality-based singing contest. The segment ended with the group's rendition of Mariah Carey's 15th No.1 hit and a certified-Filipino favorite Thank God I Found You. ASAP can be seen worldwide through the Filipino Channel.

In an assessment, this trend of top local performers doing Mariah Carey songs on national TV is vastly an important thing for all Filipino fans and alike. Its enormous (free) promotion being given to Mariah Carey is very satisfactory and of great help especially that the release of her new album is just around the corner. Lets just hope that this trend on Philippine TV will continue for as long as it can be and inspire more artists to do the same.

It was hard to tell what was really under all that so she played along, refusing autographs — but accepting drinks, of course. We are still laughing at that one!"

Mariah's "Hero" and its 9-11 connection // 12:05 PM EST Updated by Will

When it was first released as a single, Mariah Carey’s "Hero" became an instant inspirational classic. But since the tragic events of September 11, its impact has become even greater. It has re-emerged as one of the inspirational, heartfelt songs which have provided comfort and hope to many people during the terrorist crisis.

"Hero" was written by Carey and Walter Afanasieff in 1992, and was originally conceived as a theme song for the movie, Hero (starring Dustin Hoffman), which would potentially be sung by Gloria Estefan. "I had been asked by Sony's soundtrack division to write and produce the end, title theme for Hero," recalled Afanasieff. "Soon after, when I was in New York working in the studio with Mariah, I suggested we try to write a song for this movie. During a studio break, I was tinkering at the piano, playing the notes that would become the piano intro to 'Hero.' Mariah liked what she heard, and we started writing the song, with the 'Hero' theme in mind. She sang, 'then a hero comes along.' She was truly inspired; the words just flowed out."

It was during this writing session that Sony Music President and COO Tommy Mottola (who was Carey's fiance at the time) came into the studio and heard "Hero."

"I told Tommy we were writing a song for this movie," said Afanasieff. "He said, 'Stop, this song is brilliant. We need to save this song for Mariah's album. We decided to keep it for ourselves, and we recorded it for her Music Box album. As for the Hero film, Luther Vandross ultimately wrote and recorded the end title song."

Afanasieff produced "Hero" with Carey, and he performed all of the music tracks. "When I recorded the track, I tried to simulate an orchestral sound with my synthesizers," explained Afanasieff. "There's a huge, timpani roll, a swell of strings, and french horns, which were all done on keyboards. In the back of my mind, I thought we might have an orchestra re-create the string parts. However, when Mariah completed her vocals, she said the recording sounded fine just the way it was, and that we didn't need to bring in an orchestra."

"Hero" was subsequently released as the second single from Music Box, and reached number one on the Billboard "Hot 100" chart on December 25, 1993. It stayed atop the chart for four weeks. Upon its initial release, "Hero" was quickly recognized as a unique, inspirational song. At her Madison Square Garden concert in mid-December 1993, Carey dedicated her performance of "Hero" to the victims and families of a tragic, Long Island train shooting which had occurred on December 7. She also donated proceeds from "Hero" to the victim's families. In 2001, Carey's performance of the song was a focal point of the New York telethon, America: A Tribute To Heroes.

Over the years, "Hero" has been regarded as one of Carey's most significant and memorable recordings. "It has become a song which has given a lot of meaning to people in times of despair," said Afanasieff. "Mariah told me she has received thousands of letters from people who were moved and helped by the song. For kids who were messed up on drugs, or were contemplating suicide, the song helped give them hope and strength."

In the wake of September 11 tragedies, the song's impact has risen to a new level. "The events of the world have resulted in certain songs [like "Hero"] being embraced by people." explained Afanasieff. "Following September 11, everyone involved has truly been a hero. All of the firemen, police and victims were heroes, as well as the military personnel. We're always going to live in a world where there are tragedies. Everyday someone has to be a hero."

Mariah on People's "Worst Dressed" List // 4:20 PM EST Updated by Liron

Even with stylists, not all celebrities look fantastic all the time. The special issue of People magazine's Best and Worst Dressed hits newsstands on Friday. The Early Show gets a sneak preview.

“We look at lots and lots of pictures throughout the year and separate them in different piles,” the magazine's Zorianna Kit tells co-anchors Hannah Storm and Julie Chen. “There are some who look good and will make the list, but there are those on the iffy side and those who are always in a disastrous outfit. You’re waiting for them to show up in some sort of God-knows-what type of frock.”

The following is the category Mariah appears on, of the magazine’s 20 categories:

30 Going on 13 – This category includes celebrities trying too hard to dress young, such as Mariah Carey, Jewel, Chloe Sevigny, and Tracee Ellis Ross - all wearing too-short skirts.

Kits says Carey hs been wearing the baby-doll dresses that are not age appropriate. “There is a difference between looking youthful and looking childish and she looks gorgeous in her gowns, but at 35 years old, she should retire that outfit. It definitely is past its prime,” Kit says.

McFadden: Westlife Song with Carey was 'A Shambles' // 4:00 PM EST Updated by Liron

Former WESTLIFE singer BRIAN McFADDEN has slammed the boyband's collaboration with MARIAH CAREY as 'a shambles'.

McFadden, who left the Irish group earlier this year (04) to pursue a solo career, believes musicians should only ever team up to record a track together if the moment is right.

And the 24-year-old star still cringes at the memory of Westlife and Carey's cover of PHIL COLLINS' AGAINST ALL ODDS.

He says, 'I don't think collaborations should ever be pre-planned. When Westlife did it with Mariah Carey it ended up being a shambles.

'The best collaborations are when you just realise it should be one and it just happens.'

Kanye West To Focus On Solo Material // 9:27 AM EST Updated by Lynn

He hit big with production work for the likes of Twista, Jay-Z, Monica and Alicia Keys, but now Kanye West has revealed he plans to turn down any future artist keen for him to work his old-school influenced magic for them.

Having established himself as a solo artist in his won right with the likes of All Falls Down and Through The Wire, Kanye, about to hit the singles chart with critically acclaimed new single Jesus Walks, is said to be keen to concentrate on his won material and avoid ‘diluting’ his distinctive sound, based around speeded up 70s soul samples.

In recent months West’s name has been linked to a number of highly lucrative commercial projects for the likes of Jennifer Lopez and Backstreet Boys, but these now look unlikely.

However, there is one mega-star Kanye has willingly spared studio time for. The super-producer, celebrating a record breaking 7 MOBO nominations this month, has recently completed work on at least one track for the new Mariah Carey album, due for release later this year. One track, Stay The Night, is rumoured to be the first single from the much talked about project, and is said to feature a rap cameo from the man himself.

Bright Future Beckons For Damizza // 6:37 AM EST Updated by Lynn

He’s the hip-hop supremo with the magic touch, bringing his distinctive laid-back style to hits for everyone from Nate Dogg to Shade Sheist and heads his own Baby Ree entertainment empire. What’s more, lately L.A’s finest, Damizza, has found himself more in demand than ever.

When not concentrating on his day job as Senior Programmer at L.A’s Power 106FM he’s managed to fit in studio time with a number of high profile acts. Expanding beyond the confines of hip-hop, Damizza has reportedly produced a track for Nu-Metal band Korn. The band, fronted by Jon Davis, are set to launch their Greatest Hits collection in mid-October with a cover of Cameo’s 1986 funk anthem Word Up, with Damizza handling remixing duties. But before you go thinking that the main man is abandoning hip hop altogether, he’s also currently working on a more familiar project. Long term friend and collaborator Mariah Carey has apparently just completed work on a handful of tracks for her new album, due this November, featuring Damizza’s production magic.

Clearly a man who likes to keep busy, Damizza is currently combining work on his own solo debut disc with a new Ice Cube album set for release later this year. Rumour has it that these projects will be finding a home at Universal Records. After previous struggling with international distribution problems, Damizza is said to be close to signing a deal with Universal to head A&R at their West Coast division. The move would most likely see Baby Ree join the likes of Def Jam, Murder Inc and Roc-A-Fella under the Universal umbrella.

Expect Temperature To Rise With Jadakiss Future Release // 6:36 AM EST Updated by Lynn

With a US number one debut for his latest album, Kiss Of death, New York rapper Jadakiss has well and truly established himself in rap’s mainstream, and it seems he’s determined to ensure 2004 is his most commercial successful year to date.

Currently hitting the charts with controversial new single Why, which targets everything from racism at the Academy Awards to 9/11, over the lush soul harmonies of the ubiquitous Anthony Hamilton, his next release is set to see him in much more commercial territory. The insanely catchy U Make Me Wanna, sees Jadakiss swapping tender rhymes with another honey-voiced vocalist, Mariah Carey, over an ear-catching Eastern influenced beat. The pair first worked together seven years ago on the popular urban remix of Carey’s mega-hit Honey, with Jadakiss putting in an appearance as one half of the Lox. For the past 5 years this busy man has combined roles in both that group and the Ruff Riders while embarking on an intermittent solo career which began with 2001’s Kiss Tha Game Goodbye.

Conceding that the video for the Carey duet will be his most ‘sexy’ to date, in a direct appeal to a wider female audience, Mr Raspy clearly expects the slow jam to be his biggest mainstream success to date. Given the across the board appeal of last year’s Carey/Busta Rhymes smoocher I Know What You Want, Jadakiss, whose album also sees him collaborating with the likes of Nate Dogg and Eminem, may well not be far wrong.
