Hot Shot: Mariah Carey Reunites With The-Dream

mariah carey the dream e1350570769611 Hot Shot: Mariah Carey Reunites With The Dream

The sales of Mariah Carey‘s last album ‘Memoirs’ may have been a nightmare, yet that hasn’t deterred the diva from re-teaming with the main culprit behind it, The-Dream.

Turning her attention from the media spectacle of her feud with Nicki Minaj, the American Idol Judge is putting her energy into her upcoming studio album – which according to her manager Randy Jackson is due next March.

As per the Twitter pic Mimi shared above, The-Dream is the latest to join the All-Star cast of hitmakers assembled for the as yet untitled project. Other names confirmed to be involved include Jermaine Dupri, Bryan Michael Cox, and No ID.

*********

While we’re inclined to side-eye ol’ Mimi for this (it didn’t work the last time, why should it now), we’ll embrace our fair and unbias nature by waiting to hear the material first.

The largely Dream produced ‘Memoirs’ may have been a ‘Triumphant’ flop (much like her last single), yet the pair can still boast of chart-topping success together in the form of ‘Touch My Body’. That said, that track – for all its success – was also mess. So color us confused. Here’s hoping Mimi and Terius can come up with something that’ll help understand why they’re together again.

Your thoughts?

    Memoirs did 1.6 million copies worldwide..show me an artist that can pull those numbers with their 12th album in the current climate..The Dream produced Angels Cry as well which shits on anything your faves ever did qualitywise…Irony in attacking Touch My Body and praising Run The World (dream produced that too)…At the end of the day Mimi still remains the most successful female singer-songwriter in music history…I TOO WISH MY OTHER FAVES BRANDY AND KELLY ROWLAND CAN PULL HALF MEMOIRS NUMBERS..MARIAH GOING NOWHERE #DEALWITHIT

    I repeat…1.6 million WW and a mere Gold certification is f****** flop…especially for an artist of her supposed caliber. I don’t care how many times she’s had hit albums previously. For as long as she’s signed to a recording contract, it’s her JOB to sell millionS of albums CURRENTLY. Don’t nobody give a s*** about what she did “countless times already.” If she can’t continue to cut the mustard, then she needs to record independently or retire.

    theman Replied:

    You need to sit your stupid azz down. Beyonce’s album only went platinum. Mariah has sold more albums than just about every artist. She has sold so many albums it doesn’t make no sense. “Memoirs” was no flop. All of her albums are certified. Her lowest selling albums have outsold all of the flops on this site.

    @EJR43 HONEY BE GONE BYE BYE as i stated before Mariah doesn’t have to sell 10 million worldwide. The only person doing that right now is Adele so please sit and shut f*** up. She only has one gold album the rest of her albums are platinum and above. So i type now and i type again SHE DONT HAVE TO SELL MILLIONS EVEN IF SHE IS SIGNED TO A CONTRACT SHE ALREADY MADE HER MARK N BROKE HER RECORDS !!!!!!!!!! SO HAVE A SEAT A PROCEED TO ROW 4 SEAT NUMBER 12. ENJOY THE SHOW

    Girl now look at the charts and tell me when was the last time Foster and Warren had a hit. It goes like this the music Mariah was doing with them when she first came out would not get played today because the music game has changed.Back then it was more about the quality and now it seems more about who has the best hook.

    DA TRUTH Replied:

    Diane Warren and David Foster didn’t keep up with the times and are still trying to get singers to record the dated, bland ballads they wrote under the delusion it’s still 1994.

    ADC143 Replied:

    Doesn’t matter. Warren and Foster’s ballads were always exemplary A-scale quality and did a good job of showcasing the singers actual talent. Their material is timeless and has a place any year. f*** this silly fist pumping dance music that any no-talent off the street can “sing”, simply because the emphasis isn’t on talent…but rather generic dance-y production.

    Too bad her voice declined. The way I see it this era Probably some good songs (hopefully better than flopumphant) but painful performances. Putting the shade aside and being serious, I really don’t want her to lip synch so that her delusional stans can say her voice is still strong and blah blah blah but it might save her humiliation cuz those vocals at the triumphant performance…omg. And that’s good for her she’s working on another album. Just hope she knows what she’s doing. Give us more songs like obsessed and honey.

    I hope she leaves the dream alone I hope this is just a song that doesn’t make it on the album she needs to work with the ppl that she worked on emancipation of Mimi with which is jd kanye James poyner Nelly all of them because that CD was really diverse e=mc2 and memoirs sounds like the same album with only two good songs on them which is I wish you well I stay in love and I want to know what love is and languishing but her Xmas CD was really great it sounded like emancipation Xmas! I hope Mariah will bring it this time I’m sure she will have a lot of good inspiration tracks she always does on every CD she released even if it is underperformed by her standards 2013 is really gonna be that year so many ppl are releasing albums especially r&b acts

    The sales of Mariah Carey‘s last album ‘Memoirs’ may have been a nightmare, yet that hasn’t deterred the diva from re-teaming with the main culprit behind it, The-Dream.

    Mariah has sold 200 million records ww, she can flop all she wants, i don’t think she care about album sales anymore, when you get to that level, you don’t need to worry about album sales, she is still here because Music is her passion, she enjoy what she does, no crazy about The-Dream work, he is too predictable for my taste but Mimi will do the rest.

    There were actually some very good tracks on Memoirs.. Not sure who produced but probably Tricky/Dream… songs like “Candy Bling” “Ribbon” “It’s A Wrap” “Inseperable”, and even “Up Out My Face”.. really GO.. there are some gems on that album.. it was cohesive, but just felt too samey.. I felt she wasn’t using her voice to it’s full capability, but It may be that her newer “limited” vocals don’t sound all that good with the dream’s style.. I figured JD could have her slay again after hearing the song “100%”, but they have let me down already.. “Triumphant” was lukewarm.

    TMB” was a cool and catchy song. There was nothing wrong with it. You know u are biased when u have to keep making mention of it. Sam if your ugly azz don’t appreaite this great artist, then why do u keep talking about her. U act like a little b***h. You’re mad for nothing. Get over yourself. This fool can’t say nothing about Mariah wuthout hating it’s pathetic. Tell Kelly R. Melanie F. and Garbaj Minaj to move some real units. U try to make the slightest things they do sound epic. No offense to them. May’be Mariah is just doing a track or two to see what comes oout of this session. Sam always digresses. All he had to say was that they were working together. Mariah’s voice is phenomenal. Her “Triumphant” performance was not nearly what a few of u were saying it was. You also got thi pic from “ThelavalL”. Get your own material.
