Mariah Preps TWO ‘Memoirs’ Remix LP’s

Published: Friday 11th Dec 2009 by Sam

According to Mariah Daily Journal, the 39 year old diva is now set to release not one, bit two ‘Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel‘ LP in the coming year. The first (the main) will comprise of R&B/Hip-Hop/Pop remixes, while the other will be a Dance record featuring Jump Smokers remixes of tracks from original LP.

Oh Mimi. So the original album sold triple wood, and instead of disappearing quietly and sparing herself any embarrassment, she drops two remix albums. Newsflash: If no one bought it the first time, they sure as hell won’t be buying the second, third, fourth?! It’s like there’s a 12 year old at the steering the wheel of her career at the moment. I mean, for a number of reasons, ‘Memoirs’ passed away a long time ago. Surely now would be the time to regroup, live a little and come back with something people will part with their money for.

Worse still for Mariah, when she does drop another project, she will be over 40 (that’s if she isn’t already…I’m not being a cow, there are legitimately reports that she is!) Not that I agree with the notion, but it’ll be problematic in that the industry appears to have a silent ‘you’re past it if over 40’ M-O – just ask Janet Jackson, Jennifer Lopez, Toni Braxton and Madonna (to a lesser extent). While some of the aforementioned are still snatching wigs and doing the damn thing, it’s clear they almost have to graft that much harder (almost like a new act) to garner radio play and support from the industry. With MiMi still attempting to sell her sex-appeal, which long expired, she’ll have an uphill struggle, unfortunately, trying to re-position herself in an industry she had in the palm of her hand just 3 years ago (damn you ‘E=MC2’ and ‘Memoirs’). Sigh…

    I’m not a big Mariah fan but you seem to lack the proper knowledge as to what can and can’t be. Mariah has nothing to prove anymore. She’s been there done that. She has her Millions and is now doing projects to please her fans. I agree to some extent about her image but she’s a powerful music player. She’s not Rihanna, Bey, Britney, Lady Gaga or Ciara. She’s done it all and is now doing what she loves. Age shouldn’t measures a persons artistry or success. As long as Mariah is making the music she loves and her fans appreciate I don’t see why she should stop because “she’s 40”

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    I hate when people dont read s*** properly. Sam said him dont agree with the stopping at over 40 thing, but Mariah needs to sort herself out generally. which i agree with!

  4. Boricua December 11, 2009

    Sam you’re such a b****.
    Even down to the gif!! LMAO
    You’re just like them messy f*** over at DGsource.

  5. Oggie December 11, 2009

    Sam, no… just no, your entitled to your opinion but you are just being a straight up b****, it’s not your place to say that she should spare herself of anything, I commend her for believing in her album, you know full well that good old fashioned R&B is very hard to push now days and this is the reason that the BRILLIANT Memoirs is not getting the respect it deserves, bringing her age into it is just stupied, you lick Whitneys crack smoking bum yet she is near 50, Susan bOyle has been number 1 in the US for 3 weeks, ugly as hell but b**** can sing so more power to her. Mariah Carey is the biggest selling female artist of ALL TIME!!! You can H.A.T.E on her all day long but that album is brilliant and if she is smart enough to find otherwise to market it then good luck to her, she didn;t wanna follow the mold of the dry s*** that is slated as R&B now shes doing it the way it should be done!

  6. AWOLLUVA December 11, 2009

    The kids these days just don’t respect the older female artists and the legacy they made, the way they changed the industry for the “Rihanna’s, Beyonce’s and Lady Gaga’s” of today. It’s hard to watch, but there’s nothing you can really do about it.

  7. Imyourstar702 December 11, 2009

    I dont know why some of you are having a go at Sam what hes saying is TRUE!!! dont you see whats going on in the music industry today?? When you reach 40 and over the music industry blacklists you like your a murderer or something..

  8. IH8SAM&TRENT December 11, 2009

    arghh…HE’S IS SUCH A BITCHBOY

    CANT STAND HIM

    UR THE ONE CREATING THIS WHOLE “OVER 40” = NO MORE CAREER THING

    U TIRED LITTLE B****
    ALWAYS HATING, OBVIOUSLY SOMEBODY NEEDS A BIG ONE..

    I TOLD U.. COME AWAY FROM THE COMP.. CAUSE UR ANNOYING PEOPLE AND GO STRIP AT A G@Y CLUB… U ANNOYING P****
    U DONT KNOW NOTHING ABOUT THIS INDUSTRY AND HOW IT WORKS YET U LIKE TO THROW UR LITTLE UNIMPORTANT 2 PENCE IN ALL THE TIME ON THINGS THAT ARE SOOO FAR OUT OF UR LEAGUE !!!..

    SAM UR NOT APART OF THAT WORLD.. UR BARELY THE LITTLE KID TRYNA REACH THE GOOD STUFF ON THE TOP SHELF.. BUT U CANT … CAUSE UR JUST NOT THAT WORTHY..

  9. carla December 11, 2009

    This will fail. No one will buy plus jan, feb are sloow music sales months. This will be interesting to watch. I wonder who greenlighted this project.

  10. GeeMan December 11, 2009

    Sad how Sam dwells on negative things but at the sametime everyone goes through ups and downs. Even though this album did not do well she still has accomplished what many can only image. Did you mention that she just won the song of the decade honor or the best comeback of this decade even though you might wanna keep it real and express your opinion you seem more like a Perez wannabe nowadays instead of a real informative blog or journalist. Be yourself and stop trying to be a wanna be person of shock value it makes you seem very in the words of talk show host & radio legend Wendy Williams How you doin.

  11. Steffon December 11, 2009

    My question is why?. Your lastest album didn’t even exceed to go GOLD. Just sit down with your hubby have a child, and just give up. Your time has come and gone

  12. Fedde December 11, 2009

    WHY MARIAH, WHY???

  13. Mone December 11, 2009

    This could be Mimi’s way of getting out of her deal with Island Def Jam! We all know that she is not happy with the way this project has been handled and she may be trying to just fulfill the terms of her contract (how many releases she has to put out), by just releasing 2 remix albums. Madonna just did it by releasing her Celebration (greatest hits) to finally fulfill her obligation to Warner Bros. Records after being with them her entire career. So who knows?

  14. Anon December 11, 2009

    Memoirs was actually a pretty great album. If it was slept on, then I don’t mind her doing a little more to get it into the public.

    More importantly, is will Sam be lecturing Chris Brown when he comes out with a Remix/Reloaded version of Graffiti next year? It’s going to be a flop, and he’ll probably try some damage control in the coming months…

  15. G.U.S December 11, 2009

    fans and many people will buy memoirs remix because
    collaborations are luxury and Mariah is one of the best
    singers in the world and a television personality
    wonderful. Mimi the lambs love you very much !!!!!!! all with Mariah

  16. jeremimi December 11, 2009

    UGHH WILL THIS F***** SHUT THE F*** UP!!!!!!!

    SAM, Why DON’T you report that Memoirs is the 4th Best selling album of 2009??? Why didn’t you mention that even though Memoirs only sold about 300,000 copies so far…EVERYBODY ELSE sold probable 100,000 copies (Rihanna, Amerie, 50 Cent, … EVERYONE in 2009 …. meaning that this is a drough in the music industry and Mariah is NOT performing well ONLY because of the nature of the industry at this moment)

    SAM, Why DON’T you report that Mariah’s new album wil feature BEYONCE AND ALICIA KEYS….because you don’t want anyone to get excited about it, THAT’S WHY YOU F*****!!

    SAM, Why DON’T you report Mariah’s real age…39 (She turns 40 wayyyy in March…the album drops in February, MEANING SHE’LL STILL BE 39)

    SAM, Why DIDN’T YOU MENTION that all those 40+ acts you mentioned (Janet, Madonna, whoever) WERE ALREADY FLOPPING BEFORE 40 years old with their album……..BUT NOT MARIAH…SHE’S ALWAY RELEVANT NO MATTER HOW OLD SHE GETS!!!!!!

    SAM, Why do you insist on saying Mariah dresses TOO S***….when TONI BRAXTON, JANET JACKSON, AND MADONNA DRESSES THE SAME WAY, AND MARIAH IS MUCH YOUNGER THAN ALL THREE OF THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!

    SAM, WHY are you so negative about a living legend….OH, Because she sells more than ALL of your favorite singers PUT TOGETHER and you’re JEALOUS!!!!!!!

    LOL, well be jealous, because Memoirs Remixes will STILL SELL (and I’m sure you’ll have a copy and everyone in here!!!)

    POINT PROVEN!!!!!!!!!

  17. Toastee December 11, 2009

    Sam is absolutly right! Mariah should also start to put some clothes on! She’s no longer 20!

  18. JoshZilla December 11, 2009

    I agree with the person who said Mariah is making music for her fans. She’s sold millions, made millions and doesn’t need to prove anything. I’ll support her always. Can’t wait for the hip hop remix album. Memoirs is a great album if you get ur head out ur ass and give it a chance.

  19. December 11, 2009

    Co-signing everybody saying that she’s making music for the fans. She specifically said on her twitter that Memoirs was a “fan album”, since people had been asking her to go back to how she sounded with Butterfly (not saying Memoirs = Butterfly in terms of quality but y’know).

    Just like Janet, Toni, Madonna, etc. she has absolutely nothing to prove. Let her actually enjoy making music and do what she wants to do. When these flavors of the month have even 1/3 of the success and longevity that Mariah has had in her career, then call me.

    Until then, stop being so damn negative about everything. If you hate something, don’t report on it. And please, stop calling yourself a Mariah fan. Not saying every Mariah fan should be a huge stan or anything, but damn, you go WAY harder on her than any of her “haters” just because she doesn’t run her career exactly as you would.

    da f***, there was a rumor saying that beyonce is 35 or whatever, do you believe too? what a c***, you look like a 5 year old.
    as for the ones you mentioned, I like Janet, I dont like Madonna, Toni Braxton is indiferent to me, but the one who is still getting attention, airplay, sales, breaking records, is Madonna

  22. ty December 11, 2009

    I agree with you Sam, she needs to find that balance of acting her age and still be able to put out current music. I wish Mariah fans would stop saying she’s the best selling femal of all time , she is the best selling since the soundscan error(1991). Whitney , Madonna, and Barbara have sold way more than her but there was no soundscan tracking when they first started.

  23. Lovelarah December 11, 2009

    Sam, please run your OWN famous career & stop telling legends what to do -thank you.

    Having said that i do enjoy ur site, just wish you would stop tripping with the know how…considering you are a barnacle on the business not an artist!!!!!

  24. AWOLLUVA December 11, 2009

    I could definitely believe Mariah’s over 40, lol. She looks over 40 – but not in a bad way. Actually, she looks like a woman in her early 40’s who’s had real good plastic surgery to look like she’s in her early 30’s.

    Lol @ not one, but TWO “Memoirs of A Perfect Flop” remix LP’s. S*** had me in tears when I first heard the news! XD

  25. Anon December 11, 2009

    I really didn’t like Memoirs that much, but this post was kinda harsh. We get it! Your not really feeling Mariah’s direction right now. However, I’m not sure about the ‘sparing’ part. I don’t know the details of her details of her deal with Def Jam, but it looks like she’s trying to deliver some contractually obligated albums quickly so she can be done with the label. Just my 2 cents.

  26. Bobby from Bulgaria December 11, 2009

    Sam:

    – Blah blah blah blah blah…

    Me:

    – Yeah… Whatever…

  27. GeeMan December 11, 2009

    Ok someone stated Mimi”s current success I did a little research myself and here”s what I found she is third most successful female artist overall The artist of the previous decade she secured 14 #1 singles during the 90″s # 1 female of the soundscan era #2 most successful of the hot 100 list. The artist with the song of this decade the artist with the song at #1 the most weeks overall. Among countless other honors.

  28. Quinn December 11, 2009

    She must be trying to get out of her contract because she has to know that album is over.
    Frankly, I wish she would dress more classy but thats really isnt the problem.
    Bottom line – if she comes correct with the live performances(i.e. not sounding hoarse, dead, off key, and etc) she can come back. I think since the awful Micheal Jackson funeral performance and countless others of this era where she sounded bad people just started to believe she could’nt sing outside the studio anymore. Look at Susan Boyle. If you are not a dancer, fashionista, or exciting performer you need to be able to bring it live.

  29. CJordN December 13, 2009

    I have never been a big fan of MiMi, but I must say that I enjoyed this CD. IMO, it was one of the best cuts of the year. With the exception of a few songs, I loved it. I absolutely do not think album sales play any part in how successful an artist is these days because everyone downloads everything. As a result, I don’t believe the “selling triple wood” comment was a fair statement towards MiMi.

  30. J December 13, 2009

    Ugh Mariahs fans are as sane as Jack the ripper lol. And Mariah just needs to Quit. The album crashed crashed and burned how can you release not 1 but TWO more projects after a disaster of an album. This will not be pretty so Mariah fans enjoy the landslide no way in hell is she going to rise above this mess.

  31. J December 13, 2009

    Sam I agree truth is a b**** …get the f*** over it.

  32. The One December 14, 2009

    Who is Sam I mean really LMAO!!!!!!! Nothing that dude says is true and the sad thing is Sam couldn’t event tell a singer what not they are singing let alone give any real critique about music forreal!!!! He does even know what the c majoe scale is LMAO, and you peeps on his every word!!!! Show what you know too!

  33. The One December 14, 2009

  34. Ace December 15, 2009

    For those of you who keep saying “THIS ALBUMS FOR THE FANS” What fans? The onese 17&under? I was 4 years old when Mariah debut and I’ve been a fan ever since. I have ALL AND DAMMIT I MEAN ALL of her albums, she’s made a complete decline from the artist she was to the artist she is today, Im sorry. Its like shes completely dumbed her music quality down for it to ‘sell’. The reason why TEOM sold like hot cakes was because it was the closest style of material and singles Mariah released that made you remember the Mariah you fell in love with. CHARMBRACELETE E=MC2 AND MEMOIRS ALL go into the category of Mariahs rap albums because she does more whispering and cooing than she does singing on all of them. It would be the equivilant of an artist like Alicia Keys going from where she is to half naked holding her dress together with her hand all the while gasping for air afraid to breathe too heavy at the Grammy’s. S** SELLS but thats not what sells Mariah’s albums. I think she forget for the first part of her career she was covered from head to toe and she sold like the bread in a blizzard. NOW that she half naked, half singing, half caring no one else cares…. she needs help seriously

  35. Top40ModernRock January 2, 2010

    Am I the only one who thinks her career tanked because she married a black man? I know Mariah is hispanic, but her fan base was always white people. Look at video for Touch My Body. That was the biggest thing I can ever remember, and if you ask me, it’s because of that video and how the guy that looks like Weezer went crazy for her, but then in real life she marries a black guy. Then all the white people said see you later. Am I the only one who thinks this because I have not read it in any of the comments.
