New Song: Mariah Carey – ‘Up Out My Face (Ft. Nicki Minaj)’

Published: Thursday 7th Jan 2010 by Trent

Yesterday, diva Mariah Carey’s ‘Angels Cry (Remix)’ surfaced on the web. Today, the ‘Up Out My Face (Remix)’ has emerged as well. The single, which will be released as part of a dual release with ‘Cry’, features rapper Nicki Minaj. Carey’s ‘Angels Advocate’ remix LP hits stores on February 23rd.

This track supports the old adage “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” The original version was solid and served as one of the standout songs from the ‘Memoirs of An Imperfect Angel’. However, the addition of Minaj’s almost confusing lyrics over a completely unaltered production seems almost completely pointless. The rapper did not improve the song in any way. The hype of both their names will certainly guarantee that the song will get airplay but without the support of a strong video, I sense that this single will be quickly ignored in favour of the ‘Cry’ collaboration with Ne-Yo.

Hit or Miss?

  5. carol January 7, 2010

    uggg! Where is Trina, Eve or even khia- Nicki Minaj sounds busted and wack- this song will flop and mariah will deserve if for trying to jumpin on the band wagon on a rapper with buzz-even mariah lyrics are immature/trite for a 40yr old

    singing abou someone under you hood is not cool- mariah you are starting to look desparate

  6. Mya January 7, 2010

    IM SICK OF THIS LIL KIM REJECT!

  7. GtheGreat January 7, 2010

    Trina would’ve been WAY better on this track…Nicki dropped the ball…horribly!

  8. Imyourstar702 January 7, 2010

    Ya see all this Niki Minaj hype for nothing!!!!

  9. Mya January 7, 2010

    This song is sooooooooooooo Dumb!

  10. Imyourstar702 January 7, 2010

    Ok somebody help me out… what the hell is Nicki talking about on this song?? and why is she rapping like that??? does she always rap like that??

  11. JoshZilla January 7, 2010

    The only reason I visit this website is to get the music. I could care less about all your personal opinions. It’s already evident that the people behind this blog have poor taste in music. But that being said, thanks for always getting me the new music. Even if your personal opinions are wack. LOL.

  12. Anissa January 7, 2010

    Ha yeah nicki’s verse does NOTHING for this so far my favorites are h.a.t.e.u and obsessed

  13. Travis January 7, 2010

    Ok, so this wasnt Nicki’s best verse on a song. She’s a new artist so give her a break. I still enjoy her music. Roll on Nicki Roll On.

  14. number1k9 January 7, 2010

    I don’t understand the Nicki Minaj hype either…

    I liked this song the original from the album. Remix is OK, nothing better nor worse. Even though I do like the song, well original, they MC lyrics are very juvenile. The-Dream filled all of ‘Memoir’s…’ with immature lyrics.

    Who ever said Trina would have killed it, is right, her voice would have matched this songs hype way better.

  15. WTF – (THE ORIGINAL) January 7, 2010

    NEXT

  16. Kevin January 7, 2010

    Once again MiMi deceives her fans……

  17. B. Mike January 7, 2010

    Nicki 1st verse is nice. That second verse = random as hell lol! Song is still fire, and still my favorite from Memoirs…

  18. B. Mike January 7, 2010

    Take that back – 1st verse is random too lol.

  19. Yamaha January 7, 2010

  22. Erica January 7, 2010

  23. jeremimi January 7, 2010

    Mariah is BRILLIANT WITH OR WITHOUT Nicki….AND THAT’S THE TRUTH!!!!!!!!

  24. Haters_Be_Heavy January 7, 2010

    LOVE it!!! I LOVE Nicki Minaj too! Her flow is unique, her content is smart and makes u think, and for the average listener (idiot) may seem confusing. She brings a whole new aspect to female rap and rap in general. NO she’s not your average p**** poppin, bragging, hood chick, rapping about men spending tons on her, but she’s fun and wierdly unique….hmmm….female rap’s Lady Gaga? Ppl are always so stuck on the norm or what’s expected and won’t free up any room for something fresh or different. But anyway, Trina and Foxy Brown (seasoned artists) endorses Nicki, so why can’t we?….oh, and for the record I HATE Trent…I’m only here for Sam 🙂

  25. J-Wellz January 7, 2010

  27. G.U.S January 7, 2010

  28. ALLNIGHTDONTSTOP2010 January 7, 2010

    Im so such a Mimi stan but these two singles aren’;t really flying with me. Im confused
    because this is suppose to be a remix album and not a duets album. Im taking Mariah got some serious tricks up her sleeves cause Im not feeling these songs I prefer the originals

  29. stan January 7, 2010

    mariah is wasting everyone’s time with these half-assed efforts

  30. @Hayaseta_Lamb January 7, 2010

  31. wtf January 8, 2010

    aww ICTY is everywhere..yep that song aint dying any time soon and its already platinum…

    errr, what is nicki going on about…mimi, just call this one a rap..it aint getting any better!!

  32. kenney January 8, 2010

    why can’t y’all spell your words correctly? Anywho, IDK why Mariah’s wasting money on a damn remix version. It ain’t gonna get any higher than my ceiling. Mariah’s problem is she doesn’t know how to keep her music locked up but instead she allows the leaks.

  33. Nixon January 8, 2010

    Why dont you all just shut the f*** alright.

    Nunn of you got what it takes to stop her hype so give it up.

    Your voice is not heard.

    You guys dont know good rap if it came across and slapped you in your damn face.

    Nicki my b**** nd yall juss haters.

    simple as that.

    Hard to accept right.

    hahahahah you lames.

  34. B January 8, 2010

    This is the worst attempt by Island Def Jam to save a project that I have ever seen. WTF is the point??? All the songs have the same production, with added vocals by some guest singer or rapper. While I agree that this cd is better than E=MC2, it’s doing nothing on the charts and every attempt to save the record has failed. The BEST thing to do is pull out, regroup and come back with a BRAND NEW cd in about 2 years.

  35. CJordN January 8, 2010

    The rap @ the beginning made sense, but I have no idea what the 2nd one was about.

  36. The One January 8, 2010

    OMG!!!!!!! Your people really are bumd!!!!! If you don’t like the songs don’t listen to them!!! no one is making you, but you listen any way LOL!!!!!! So what does that say about you! How is she wasting money when I know a whole list of people who can’t wait to buy the remix album!!! Its a lot of people who are going to end up in hell for hating on there brother and sisters and don’t even know it……Before you try to call someone out on something going on in their life ……don’t forget to take account for your actions in yours…….Foolish people!!!!

  37. Ene January 8, 2010

    I loved it but it sounded kind of familiar.

  38. Imyourstar702 January 8, 2010

    @ THE ONE

  40. THE ONE January 11, 2010

    Back @ IMYourstar702 LoL its very simple my poor confused frined!!!! The first thing you should ask yourself is are you a Fan Of Mariah’s music or any other artist you bash after listen to a song that you may not be able to relate to or simple just don’t care for!!! If U dont
    likethe song why put up negative comments about it because that same song may very well be someone elses saving grace………You are only one person in the huge world!!! Just because you can’t relate or don’t like something that does not give you the right to try to trash talk another person’s work!!! So my question is to you do support the negative comments from these egg heads who try and down theses artist personal lives, weight, how they think these people live their lives and ect…………Enjoy it if you like and forget about it if you don’t its just that simple because regardless of what you think it really doesn’t matter and you are more than likely one who is burning Cds in the place of buying them and you probably don’t even get that!!! LOL NEXT Question?

  41. THE ONE January 11, 2010

    Oh yeah, I went back and read your comments!!!!! You don’t even know this Niki like I don’t and you still Hate on the young lady if you don’t like her are mariah why are you on here and posting over and over agin!!! Sound like you have some issues with yourself!!!!! Thats normally the case @ IMYOURSTAR702 your hype is the only one thats worth nothing!! Peeps like you just live to make other peeps lives difficult, but trust and believe what ever you dish out will eventually come back on you!!! Have a Nice LIfe Im done with you!!!

  42. Dear Truth February 4, 2010

There’s nothing wrong wit nickis voice–it unique and once again unlike other female rappers who usually try to deepen their voice to sound like guys she sounds like herself.her flow is interesting and the way she spits just adds to it…it makes u wanna listen cause of how diffrent it sounds. Y’all need to stop hatin just cause something is different…yeah kim foxy and eve were good but where are they now? foxy jus like disappeared kim went nuts and eve went hollywood. There are basicaly no female mcs out there anymore and nickis filling that spot…stop talkig bout s*** from like ten years ago—-they was hot then. But nickis hot now. Nicki minaj is the truth now and y’all need to shut up if you don’t like her then don’t listen nobodys makin you…but anyways yeah Nicki made this songg waaayyy better she brought some energy to it…f*** all y’all hatin ass people…I’m outttt—- its Barbie bitchhhh!
