Mariah Carey Eyes March 2013 For New Album

mariah 759x1024 Mariah Carey Eyes March 2013 For New Album

Her fans had hoped for its release this year.

However, in a conversation with Billboard.Com, Mariah Carey‘s manager Randy Jackson has revealed that the icon has eyed March 2013 for the launch of the long awaited project.

Full story below…

Excerpt from Billboard’s ‘Why Mariah Carey Released Three Version Of Triumphant Single’:

Previewing the multiple versions of the single — co-written and co-produced by Carey, Jermaine Dupri and Bryan-Michael Cox — reveals the diversity of musical genres expected on her untitled 14th album, tentatively due in March 2013. According to Carey manager Randy Jackson, releasing the three different versions of “Triumphant” speaks to her ability to cater to multiple audiences and radio formats.

Confirming ‘Triumphant’s status as a buzz single, here’s hoping the decision to release the LP in 2013 doesn’t eliminate the buzz it was set to enjoy had it been launched this year.

In saying that, with a number of projects lined up for release in that year, Camp Mimi could be readying a media onslaught which will see her push her upcoming movie and LP at the same time. Thus, killing two birds with one promo stone.

On the flip side, one does have to wonder why she needs so long to complete the project when she’s been teasing fans with it since 2011.

    The song is now a buzz single because of the reaction of the people, it’s not a good song as i say and the reason why they are thinking in 2013 for the album it’s because they probably would give her new songs.

    dom Replied:

    Not exactly true, if Mariah did indeed turn it into a buzz single she could still release a new song in sep/oct and have the album out by nov/dec also Mariah doesn’t just ‘receive’ songs, she creates them.

    Leave it to a Mariah stan to wave around chart positions. SIT YOUR 1996 ass down. All that matters is final sales and certifications. Mariah’s last 2 albums didn’t go to #1 and struggled to go GOLD. And not to mention Glitter and Charmbracelet missed #1 and –again- struggled to go PLATINUM. Take away the Emancipation of Mimi and 2 lead single “Touch My Body” and “Obsessed” and everything else. EVERYTHING ELSE from Mariah in the past decade has been a bomb and a flop. SO DON’T ACT LIKE MIMI IS SLAYING because of what she did in the 90′s. I can’t anymore

    OH so now Rihanna is a big seller STRUGGLING to go PLATINUM? Get your standards straight. Yal come for Rihanna like her first album sold 10 million. Rihanna’s sales are consistent. She has huge single sales and average album sale, always has. You Mariah stans are the one’s OBSESSED with every song going to #1 and very album going to #1 and selling 5 million copies because of some s*** Mariah did 15 years ago. Mariah can’t move singles and now she can’t move albums so sit down. BTW How is “Triumphant” doing? And it’s 3… 4…. 5 versions that now being labeld a “Buzz” single like everyone predicted

    Are u Rihanna fans retarded for real???????? Your basic girl gets slayed so easily I can´t understand how u dare to comment about artists like Mariah Carey. Her last album first week sales are almost Rihanna´s first week sales, and it was like her 13th album or so after 20 years in the business. You talking about Mariah albums failing to reach #1??? Her last one did Rihnna´s first week numbers and no it didn´t go #1 but the previous one did with impressive 450,000 copies first week. I mean, seriously, leave it, your girl is a huge flop after all the hype and the producers invested in her again and again. She is just a popularity w**** queen, and not for the right reasons

    Nobody releases albums in January. That’s after Christmas, when no one is interested in shopping. The only albums that come out during that period are the ones labels have no faith in and expect to flop.

    I don’t think there was ever a plan to release it any earlier, regardless of Triumphant’s success or lack of. Mariah always release albums around March/Aprill time – and obviously she’d want to tie it in with American Idol. I don’t see why anyone should be surprised by this, or think it’s been ‘pushed back.

    I mean I think it was fairly obvious that “Triumphant” was being set up as a “buzz” single, in my opinion. First, how in the hell was she going to go out there and fully promote the song? Was she going to go out on “The View” and sing her 2-minutes worth of a part from the song? She can’t drag Rick Ross and Meek Mill to every performance and her part of the song isn’t substantial enough to sing it alone. It’s obivious they did this as a way to reintroduce her to the market before the media onslaught that she’s set to receive with “Idol”…..by March they’ll be into the “live” segments of the show and you can bet your bottom dollar she’s gonna be performing on “Idol” like every night of the week selling that album lmao it’s a smart business move to release in March.

    “Buzz single,” my ass. There’s no such thing as a “buzz single” today. “Triumphant” is taken directly from her album and was commercially released — which makes it the official FIRST single. The only way it can be a “buzz single” is if she decides to delete it from the albums tracklist (and her doing that would look pitiful on her end — like she conceded to the poor reception of the song and is trying to escape it.)

    SMH. Then they truly are f****** stupid. They got folks all buzzed then dropped that BOMB on America that is “Triumphant.” Then they completely bipass the holiday season and instead opt for a cop-out “There’s no competition and we want a #1 album with low debut sales just to say she has another #1 album”

    I can’t. I can’t roll my eyes enough at the handling of this project. American Idol will have been on for months by the time her album is released, and by then it will be all about the Top 10 contestants, not new Mariah music. Why they aren’t

    They should already have had a 2nd single prepped and released 2 weeks before the album comes out. They need to have the new Mariah album out the week before Black Friday, get her first week sales, then put the album on sale the week of Black Friday and have a smaller 2nd week decrease. Ride the album thru the holidays with a 2nd single then debut Mariah’s new 3rd single and video THE FIRST LIVE SHOW on American Idol. The 3rd single should be a remix version to boost its sales. She can perform it live on American Idol a few weeks later. THIS Should be the big inspirational ballad single perfect for AI (Triumphant?)

    WHY they released a single from an album EIGHT MONTHS before it’s out when the album isn’t even finished I’ll never know. They should have never released the pile of crap “Triumphant” unless it was JUST MARIAH and her vocals over a piano and maybe a light percussion. That TIRED ASS JD track is whack as hell. Did they think it was gonna build hype? It’s done nothing but disappoint an slightly tarnish the era already. #80 on iTunes and not even a week out. No performances. WHAT THE f*** ARE THEY DOING?

    I agree that it was obvious it was going to be released when Idol begins, not before. Pretty obvious. No change of plans here. She has to complete the album (they said like two weeks ago, seven songs are in, not the whole project). She has also a tv performance in the coming weeks from what I´ve read
    It seems this project is finally well prepared, not like the 2 previous ones, which were rushed when the girl didn´t have finished the damn album
    Promo is going to be more on point this time
    She has been filming her part on new Lee Daniels movie too. It all makes sense

    Excuses. If “Triumphant” had skyrocketed to #1 on iTunes and if radio was all over it, Mariah would be rushing to have this album out by the Xmas shopping season. They expected the song to do better than this, and were NOT aiming for March after the first singles August release. But since the song is flopping, now she’s taking her time, pondering what to do next and eying a release date that is over half a year away. Please.

    The phoniness of Mariah Carey never fails to amaze me.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if she were having calls with RedOne, Dr. Luke, Calvin Harris, Max Martin, Swedish House Mafia and every other tacky dance music producer that is hot right now to reconstruct this album to conform to current hit standards so that she won’t have to live down another flop.

    Notice how nothing is ever a “buzz single” until it under performs? “Buzz SIngle” is the most disingenuous and pathetic term in the music business. Sorry, but your “buzz single” is counted amongst the rest of them. Calling it that after it flops doesn’t save you face.

    Biting Truth – Read and Learn

    It’s almost been a week since Mariah Carey released her latest single, “Triumphant (Get ‘Em)”. While the single successfully labels itself as an inspirational tune, I can’t help but notice the overwhelming negativity that surrounds it, especially those coming from review websites and a few of the lambs. It seems that everyone wants Mariah to release something worthy of a No. 1 Hit, be it on the Billboard charts or wherever.

    It’s true that being able to hit the top spot would be a yardstick to Mariah’s popularity in the industry, and I really do commend Team Asia for bringing Mariah to the top on iTunes (I bought my single too!), but at this stage of her career, I don’t think chart performance is everything. If any, it’s an added bonus, and the publicity could even help her spread her music. The reason why I say her chart performance is not important anymore is because we all need to focus on the music she makes.

    Take the latest single for example. Yes, it imparts a different feel unlike her past extensive catalogues, but the meaning behind the song is inspiring and empowering. However, listeners have been harping on the fact that it won’t score on the charts, to the extent that it downplays the song’s intention as an inspirational single. It’s disappointing when we realise how superficial the industry has become, even more so when the essence of the music is being ignored.

    Coming from a lifelong fan of Mariah’s music, all that matters to me now is her musical endeavour (which includes her A+Mazing voice). Honestly, I enjoy “Triumphant (Get ‘Em)” and I’m equally captivated by the powerful remixes.

    And despite what the reviews and haters have to say, I still believe in her music and artistry. Just remember, when it comes from her heart, it does not disappoint. That’s her unparalleled artistic integrity.

    It’s almost been a week since Mariah Carey released her latest single, “Triumphant (Get ‘Em)”.

It seems that everyone wants Mariah to release something worthy of a No. 1 Hit, be it on the Billboard charts or wherever.

    Buzz shmuzz. If Triumphant were burning up the charts, they wouldn’t be calling it no damn “BUZZ SINGLE”, so kill that noise.

    And if March was when they were eyeing a release date then why in the hell would they put out the first single…yes, FIRST SINGLE….in August? f*****’ 8 months prior. Probably because they planned to put the album out before the end of the year. But now that the FIRST SINGLE has been met with a cold reception and probably won’t even crack the top 40, my guess is that they are basically reworking and rerecording the whole thing.

    Yeah, lets see how true Mariah stays to her word about reviving R&B. I have a feeling her sound is about to become noticeably poppier.

    Aw shut the bull crap!! Ppl want so much from mariah its disturbing like ppl what more does she have to prove to you that she’s the best!! Why would she care about #1 hits when she has 18 of em and why would she care about record sales when she sold 200 million!! And another note its her LEAD single if it wasn’t she wouldn’t have done a music video for it and also release a CD of remixes of it next week! Y’all some dumb asses some of y’all just need to not do anything business or anything related to music because most of y’all have bad ears and I blame it on today’s generation its sad one of y’all might be a record executive and only think about relevancy and quantity over quality smh

    She needs to come harder then Triumph. I feel she released way too early, wait til she appears on American Idol and use that as a vechile to push and promote her Cd. It did wonder for Jennifer Lopez and Steve Tyler.
