Hot Shot: Mariah Carey Hits Studio With R. Kelly

Published: Thursday 27th Sep 2012 by Sam

With her latest single enjoying a less-than-‘Triumphant’ chart run, Mariah Carey is on the hunt for a new hit. So who better to call on that the Pied Piper himself, R. Kelly.

The iconic diva and American Idol judge shared a shot of her in studio with Kelly on Twitter today, saying…


Needless to say, exciting stuff!  The latest time the pair fused their talents was on ‘Betcha Gon Know’, which featured on Carey’s scrapped 2010 remix LP ‘Angel’s Advocate’. Here’s hoping this track (which we’re hoping is a duet instead of ‘produced by’) enjoys a better fate. For on the merit of their names and vocal prowess, this has the potential to be epic.

Your thoughts?

    Good collabo!
    But who knows, maybe we will never listen to it. Artists work on many songs which don´t make the final cut
    I can´t wait for Mariah´s new album

      @ JohnV – so true but hopefully the single will get out to us somehow. It’s not the good old days when they put out cd singles with “lost” tracks 🙁

      Bye! Triumphant is still very much successful on the urban charts which is the type of audience she was trying to appeal to.

Although Mariah Carey‘s current predicament is anything but glorious, the singer remains one of the most remarkable artists of all-time.
