Beyonce, Rihanna, Mariah & Co Team Up For Charity Single

Published: Tuesday 19th Aug 2008 by Sam
Female Beyonce, Rihanna, Mariah & Co Team Up For Charity Single music heavy-weights including Beyonce, Mariah Carey, Rihanna and Mary J. Blige have joined forces for a star-studded single called ‘Just Stand Up’,” benefiting the Stand Up to Cancer campaign. Check out the report via MTV below:

The unprecedented gathering features vocals from Mariah Carey, BeyoncĂ©, Mary J. Blige, Rihanna, Fergie, Sheryl Crow, Miley Cyrus, Melissa Etheridge, Ashanti, Natasha Bedingfield, Keyshia Cole, Ciara, Leona Lewis, LeAnn Rimes and Carrie Underwood. The tune is being produced by the powerhouse duo of Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds and Antonio “L.A.” Reid, who are working together for the first time in nearly 20 years.

The song will be available for purchase exclusively on iTunes on September 2 and will get its TV premiere on September 5 during the live “Just Stand Up” special, which will air simultaneously and commercial-free on CBS, ABC and NBC. According to a press release announcing the project, the song was conceived by Reid, the chairman of the Island Def Jam Music Group, after a meeting with the women behind the Stand Up to Cancer campaign.

It’s great to see so many major names come together for a worthy cause.

    That’s awesome, but I’m surprised that Ashanti, Rihanna, and Fergie would have the guts to even think about singing with the other amazing vocal powerhouses.

    go ahead call me a hater bytchez, it’s the truth.

    ^^and you can add Ciara to that list.

    LOL they can add there own little flavor but you are right they are no powerhouses….And its probably not about that people will probably just buy it just to hear them all because who would think that those artist would come together

  4. Shae Mechelle August 19, 2008

    they probably aren’t coming 2gether, laying there 2 lines on the beat and sending it to Babyface and Reid, lol! i guess….

    It is good to see so many major names on one track together. Notice how each & every female artist on the track is an artist that somebody hates on or doesn't like. Hope its a HOT song.

    Ppl can say whatever they want about Ciara, but you can tell that she has improved vocally (I'm not being a STAN, jus stating what i think). Sure she's not up there with Beyonce or Mary but she has improved give her that.

    Wow ppl they’re all on the song for a worthy cause, “CANCER”. It kills me how so many of you want to criticize these women for their vocal abiltiy when half of you can’t even reach a Rihanna, Ciara or Ashanti singing status… Now for those ladies not to be able to “SING” as some of you say, that’s just sad.

  10. Frederick August 19, 2008

    how long is this song gonna be? 10 minutes? you can’t fit all these divas on a song and expect a few of them to “take one for the team” and be in the background

    That song may not sound right at all, even though some of my favorite artists supposed to be in it.

    hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha BeYawnSay;s career is officially in the tank because she’s doing multi-duet. She probably never thought she’d have to lower her stage ego standards to split time with the likes of Mary, Mariah, and say what you want but Rihanna is the “it girl” and hotter than BeYawnSay right now. Guess she crawling back home. haaaaaaaaaa

    A Bit of a weird combination it could work like Run DMC meets Aerosmith, Rock meets Hip pop, that worked well or it could end up
    being a hot mess. There are far to many artists listed in this song, which is unnecessary, it’s sounds like it could be over done with so many different voices, not everyone’s voice will go together.

    I don’t think Miley should feature, they only got the big names due to who’s popular now and they want everyone to talk about the line up, so that the song will get lots of hype.

    Anyway it should be interesting when they all hit the stage and at least it’s for a good causes but that still doesn’t mean the song will sound good, roll on sept 2 for first play

    Where the hell is Alicia Keys? She would’ve been great on the song.

    I agree w/ Mariah, Beyonce, Leona, Carrie, and Leanne but I’m not sure about the others.

    Either way, since it is for a good cause I’ll support the project. I know it’ll be great cuz of LA Reid and Babyface..

    WutEva, BeYawnSay is doing it because she finally woke up and realised that she is not a world wide woman!!!! How long did she really think she could isolate herself from the real R&B queens???

    Notice the timing is around the release of her single *yawn* . BeYawnSay is lookin out for herself as usual. She needs to take a permanent vacation because she is tired, her look, lace front, wide hips, flat b***, everything about her when she's not shaking her a$$ screams BORING!

THANK THE LORD FOR PROTOOLS

  31. OhLoHeDidnt August 19, 2008

    O REALLY? this is a crazy as hell line up. Beyonce and Mary? oh lord there's going to be some loud as f*ck hollering & screaming. then theres Miss Butterfly herself M.C i wouldnt be surprised if she did one of her high pitch squeels for this one just cause she's Mariah. Leona and Mariah on the same track? thats insane. Poor Ciara how can she compete with her "singing" or as everyone calls it whispering. I can't wait to hear this one.

  34. Anonymous August 20, 2008

    Mary and Bee are going to be just too damn loud and off key. Bey with her yodeling, Mary and her schrilling, Mariah…when she is not focusing on her bosom, she can sing. Ashantlie, Ciariously, Rihumma? Can’t be serious!! Anyway, I just hope they put up the “CHECK YOUR EGOS AT THE DOOR” sign because those diva attitudes are going to be in full effect. Oh…why weren’t Kelly and Michelle asked to be a part of this? Just curious.

  35. Anonymous August 20, 2008

    Wow Beyonce must not be that boring if all of you are adding her name in on your comments. Haters crack me up so much. And the funny little nick names for her & Ciara crack me up too… But anyway, hope the track sounds & hope it seriously shuts some of yall THE HELL UP!

    U are so rite, nowadays everybody wants be a critic & talent scout & cant sing worth a lick themselves & somehow they wanna point out who can & can't sing. It kills me at times. But anyway, hope the song is a good one.

    I dont understand you if Beyonce is so "yawn" as you say, then how do you know when her next single is coming out. Imma a fan & i didnt even know that. Ppl like you pay too much attention to her & really need to get some help. I mean if I think Miley Cyrus & Leonna Lewis is boring (Leonna can sing though), but i'm not on hear calling them boring & at the same time know every DAMN about them. And you're probably gonna say "ppl have posted it all on blogs & stuff everywhere", even so, ppl do the same thing with Miley & Leonna & i still dont remember. So like i said b4, you have serious problem. And if she was looking out for herself, wouldnt she be on the track all by herself? Jus some food for thought?

  38. Anonymous August 20, 2008

    I agree with the comment above me… You say that Beyonce is boring but yet you know when her single is coming out. If she’s so boring to you, then why even bother to know about the single?

    It kills me when hater say "I wish Beyonce would take a break"… But where she been I havent seen her & yet you all still talk about her as if she just released a new single yesterday? And i know some of the HATERS are gonna say "Sam always posts stuff about her", but yet in fact, its you [THE HATERS] who always bring her up in a negative fashion that gets ppl comparing her to Rihanna, Ashanti, Mary, Ciara, Mariah, Christina, even Aaliyah, whose dead i might add, so let her rest in peace & leave her out the conversation… It seems to me as if the HATERS make more of a buzz about Bee than the STANS & fans do.

  41. Anonymous August 20, 2008

    Its common fact when you have some of major female players in the game, there is gonna be MAD HATERS. To eveybody, if you are a fan of Beyonce, Mary, Ashanti, Ciara, Mariah, Rihanna, Miley, Leonna or any of the other female artist on the song, keep supporting them & dont worry about the HATERS. Cant wait the hear the song.

    I guess this will be like the female version of We Are The World. Beyonce will do her over the top screaming, ala Bruce Springsteen, and everyone else will be either be drowned out by it, or left wondering what the hell was that? Just remember Bey…..it’s for charity, not for personal gain.

    They're fightin 4 a good cause & yet everybody wants to talk about who should be on the track & who shouldnt be. And whats the buzz over Beyonce. The HATERS talk about the stans, but i see they are the ones making a fuss over it. Get over yourselves ppl. They're all SINGING for a good cause not 4 any of losers who are tryna HATE on every individual person on the list. From Beyonce, to Mary, to Ciara, Rihanna, Miley. Get over it & move on!!! What i find odd to is all of yall are throwing up Rihanna & Beyonce's name as if they are the only ones on the track. Natasha Beddingfield & Carrie Underwood are listed as well…. Anyway, cant hear the song. It's good to see the top females in the game doing their thing.

  50. Anonymous August 21, 2008

    Jus becuz Ciara does not scream like Beyonce or Mary (no disrespect), does not mean she doesnt have vocal talent. Her voice might not be as strong, but she has unique soundin voice. She's gotten better on her vocals & everytyhing. Stop hatin!!!!

  51. Anonymous August 21, 2008

    O I just heard the song and they sound great together!!!! It’s hard to tell who was singing what because they all match so well but I knew Beyonce, Mary J, Rihanna, Natasha, Fergie, Ashanti, and Sheryl! Voices was unique but overall the song was off da chain! I can’t wait until they grace the stage
