mariah xmas Mariah Carey Prepares For Christmas Album

As reported a few weeks ago, Mariah Carey has returned to the studio to work on a new album. The news encouraged a wave of speculation among her fans as many wondered whether she was indeed working on a new studio album or a Christmas album as the decision regarding which project the diva will be undertaking was yet to be finalised by her management. However, according to MariahDaily, famed photographer David LaChapelle has confirmed that Carey is in fact working on a Christmas album.

Nevertheless, LaChapelle’s news does not mean that Carey may not be working on both a Christmas project and a new studio album as well. Having entered the studio with Jermaine Dupri, Bryan-Michael Cox, Johnta Austin, Teddy Riley and now Randy Jackson, a studio LP seems to be a strong possibility. Possible release dates for the project(s) have yet to be scheduled.

Thoughts?

    I agree that Mariah doesn’t need to do another Christmas album. She already has one of the biggest selling X-Mas albums, which is a classic and so is AIWFCIY. But I’m looking forward to it, regardless. I just hope she’s not trying to turn traditional X-Mas songs into ghetto like trash and featuring rappers. I wasn’t really feeling the remix JD did for AIWFCIY. That song didn’t need a remix.

    I just hope Mariah sings very well on this X-Mas album, and is singing some of the great traditional songs that weren’t included on her last X-Mas album.

    I LOVE the idea of a new Christmas Album….here’s why…how many of you listen to the Merry Christmas album for like the whole months of Nov and Dec, I myself listen from Oct as well, anyway, there are a million other Christmas songs and some classics that she didnt do on the first one, and I dont think that she will make it R&B, she might however make it have a soul vibe, but she did that on the first album and it worked perfectly….bottom line, MC is not stupid she knows what works and Im sure she knows that a Christmas album needs to be more universal because its marketed to wider variety of people that normally wouldnt buy her cd’s, and she knows that she has to go up against one of the best selling Christmas albums of all time…HER OWN, its ALOT of pressure. PLUS the new song with her Mom will be on there, and I doubt it will be anything less than beautiful. Dont want the summer to go by to fast, but cant WAIT till NOVEMBER!!!!!

    Her first christmas album was AMAZING but vocally she is not in that league anymore. Take her Hero re-make, for instance, adn even with the help of autotune and studio production she still comes off flat and hoarse, and live performances even worse. I don’t know what is up with her vocal nodule situation, but I know that everyone will compare this album to Merry Christmas and she will fall short. As for all the “lambs,” you should realize that the woman is so desperate for a hit she’s prepping 3 packages for release in one year: Memoirs Remix which got shelved, xmas album and a new studio LP. The woman is one more flop away from breakdown #2.

    Sean,

    Lol shut up. Seriously. Mariah can definitely still sing and very well, with the proper vocal rest. Her last tour received an overwhelming response from how great and on point her vocals were.

    Every singers voice changes and I’m fed up with people expecting Mariah to sing like she did 15 years ago. Let it the hell go. She can still blow chops and she sounds better the majority of these so-called “singers” nowadays.

    I’m sure her vocals will be on point and she will do great with this X-Mas album. I also don’t see it flopping. It definitely won’t match the success of “Merry Christmas” but I definitely believe the album will be a hot seller every X-Mas holiday season.

    Also, Mariah only had one studio flop this decade. CB and E=MC were minor sellers but aren’t flops. They both sold 1.3 and 1.4 million respectively.

    Who cares about Madonna now… So when did she start her career then? 1983…

    Well, Mariah started her career in 1990 so don’t feel sorry for her… That is 7 years behind… In 7 years Madonna will be nowhere to be found and Mariah will be ON THE TOP… :)

    She needs time out to look over what has gone wrong recently. She can’t throw out album after album until something sticks. When she did take out to regroup, she produced one of her most successful albums. Overloading the public is not working. Releasing a Xmas album will make matters worse. She already has a hugely successful one, so this one will not come close, especially since her recent decline in popularity.

    Like some Mimi fans said, she’s never going to be as big as she used to be. What goes up must come down. Either it’s a gradual decline or a crash landing. She’s moving from the first to the latter. She’ll always be one of the greatest voices ever, but that’s not what sells anymore. She is attractive, and definitely NOT fat, but she needs to wear clothes that suit her figure. She doesn’t have to be frumpy because she’s almost forty, but wear something that suits her figure.

    Talent never goes anywhere. Those who doubt MC and thinks she’s down and out, just cause of two so-so albums (and I’m the first to admit that Memoirs was NOT on point at all), they’ll be the ones licking her arse when she comes back harder than ever.

    Sit your ass down, raise your family, take a rest and take some vocal lessons and drop the lipsynching. Sing live so that you won’t have to struggle to fill 3000-seat venues!! LMAO!

    Mariah Carey is used to commercial failures. In the last decade, 4 (FOUR) of her albums were FLOPS: Glitter, Chambracelet, The Remixes and Memoirs of an imperfect angel. The last one sold less than 1 million copies. Greatest Hits was also a failure..I think people is fed up with her R&B, Hip-Hop style and remixes.. As for the voice, Celine Dion always had the best powerful and angelical voice as shown in the song All by myself and many others.

    Mariah needs to experience a new sound and reinvent her image to redeem her career. The Emancipation of Mimi was a curtain opener to what we know Mariah can do with her gift and her voice. It would be best if she was to take her career to the extra mile and stop harboring her girly, hip hop RnB roots. Granted, she has proven to the world her 1/3 part of her racial background, but how long can she hold on to it. It is getting a bit tiring to hear slow grooves that pretty much sound the same. I am a dear fan of hers and I just sigh with disappointment with these past records.

    Artist nowadays are stepping out of their comfort zone and giving us listeners some awesome ass music. What Mariah can do is figure out what other types of genres can she incorporate in her music and collaborate with other producers other than Jermaine Dupri. Like the saying goes, you have to cut the umbilical cord. If she were to do just that, she would be back in the spotlight, and it would catch her by surprise.
