Mariah Carey Enlists Randy Jackson For New Album

Published: Tuesday 25th Oct 2011 by David

When it comes to entertainers, there are very few who can compare or compete with the quality of Mariah Carey’s back catalog.

One of the world’s highest selling and most critically acclaimed artists, recent months have seen reports of a new album from the singer that many are hoping will live up to the standard of the her earlier material.

Now it has been confirmed that she has summoned world renowned producer Randy Jackson to work on the project, just days after her very telling interview with Barbara Walters surfaced here.

More information below…

Hours ago, long time creator James Wright took the social networking site Twitter to reveal:

“Trying to sleep but can’t grrrrr Was in the studios late with @YO_RANDYJACKSON working on some @MariahCarey tracks.”

Of course, this news came as music to the ears  of many Carey supporters.

For, Jackson and Wright are responsible for many of her oft celebrated numbers, including ‘Fly Like A Bird‘ and ‘I Wish You Knew‘.

With Da Brat and Jermaine Dupri also confirmed as two of the album’s other contributors, here’s to hoping James Posyner – responsible for the song ‘Mine Again‘- jumps on board Carey’s creative train in coming weeks, since she seems to be going for a more ballad driven sound this time around.

    uuuuuuuuuuuuuuum I would love honestly if she worked with some hitmakers….like even those who work with rihanna. Imagine Mariahs voice on some rihana tracks! There is no doubting rihannas got hits!

    Even Beyonce I would love to work with Mariah!

  24. Kerry johnson October 25, 2011

    Spank my naughty ass!!!!

  25. İzzet October 25, 2011

    I think she must work with Walter Affanasief again. She produced her huge hits with him. By the way a collabration with Babyface would be gr8. “never forget you” & “melt away” are still my favorite songs of her

  26. YOOSONDALOOSE October 25, 2011

    DAMN! Cannot wait, this album will be hot! Mimi, cannot wait!

  27. AP October 25, 2011

    Mariah’s back and she will slaaaaaaaaaaaay!!!
    Can’t wait for the new album!!
    Hope her remix to Uncle Murda’s “Warning” will be out soon!!
    So excited :))

  28. Theman October 25, 2011

    She sounded nothing like Keyshia Cole on MC2. That album is great and so were the vocals. She used all kinds of different textures on that album. Mariah >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Beyonce period. Nothing Beyonce does vocally can compare to Mariah’s. @S*** is in his own lil world where he is not to be paid any mind. Lol @ Rihanna. No need to discuss that one.

  30. Gus October 25, 2011

    Good news!!!!!! I miss walter affanaiseff he made a lot of hits for her. I want a beyoncé duet and ryan tedder in production in some track

  31. MC&TB4LIFE October 25, 2011

    Four words THE QUEEN IS COMING!!! #MC4LIFE

  32. S*** (U MAD?) October 25, 2011


    Mariahs LAST 3 albums (inc Xmas Disc) was S***!!

    She hasnt done REAL music since TEOM. 😕

    I guess she was trying to be like Bey going from DIL to B’Day material but it just didnt work for her 😕 But maybe thats because her Voice doesnt have as much SOUL as Bey & Xtina:


  33. Salem October 25, 2011

    Sorry, I just do not see Mariah having anymore major success in music. She cannot perform live, her music is too generic and immature, and her voice is a wrap except for studio help. Her last 2 albums flopped hard, and her buzz is not strong

  34. Kimberly October 25, 2011

    @ poor yall… still relying on mariah whistles from the 90’s. she cannot do half of what she used to do with her voice. her last album was not great. as she gets older her voice weakens sadly. mariah live is s*** now. go listen.
    i still love her and will be checking for these notes to come back

  35. Survivor October 25, 2011

    I love you Mariah!!! Hope that you achieve what you deserve!


    She’s ALRIGHT

    Janet is better 🙂

  37. LAX October 25, 2011

    Mariah a icon, can not be denied, Rihanna on the other hand HAS
    carefully carved out her own Lane. Rih loves and admires Mariah just like
    most of us do. But all of us should be INSPRIED tO DO AS WELL AS OTHERS.
    Being INSPIRED to be as good as another does not mean you want to be better
    it just means that you sit your GOALS HIGH, And stop trying to talk RIHANNA Down because she is INSPRIED to work hard and do good just like others.

    No matter how you looser talk s***, aganist RIH it will not make her stop going aftert her Dreams, So be as NEGATIVE as you possible can, because NEGATIVE VIBES from negative ass hole only motivates rih more, keep the ATTITUDE OF TRYING TO CAUSE PAIN/HURT AND RESENTMENT TO RIHANNA is playing right into the right playing field. When you have POOR EXPECTATIONS for your own lives you or mad and bitter because you already know that a Barbadian Queen has come to the US and made hash out of people who hates on her. And her
    quest for her American Dreams has come True Above & Beyond her Wildest Dreams And shes still HUMBLE & HAPPY Just to be in the Winning Circle of Entertainment, Loosers,, AWAITING MIMI’S RETURN, HAVE NOTHING BUT LOVE & RESPECT FOR HER.

  41. swagg October 25, 2011

    @ kerry johnson, meena, and lax

    yall I am soooo serious lol i just cant with some of these comments

  42. RATEDXx(delusional is a hell of a drug) October 25, 2011

    man please..even though mimi’s voice hasnt been the same, she still shits on beyonces voice…

    even if mariah drops 10 more albums and all flops she still is going the be shitting on everybody…the bish doesnt even have to drop another album ever again..

    she doesnt have s*** to prove to anybody else….she already has made a name for herself in the game..

    she did it from scratch, none of that stealing, copying s***….

    if u are in the 100 million and up club, u aint got s*** else to prove..

  43. swagg October 25, 2011

    RATEDXx(delusional is a hell of a drug)
    i co sign every word you just said….she has nothing to prove to these b****** who havent sold half of what she has

  44. Theman October 25, 2011

    Her X-Mas disc was sh*t really? Well critics named it the best X-mas release out. I ain’t checking for none of that copycat Beyonce sh*t so stop bringingher up. Her new album 4lop ain’t nothing but rehashes of ole material, all of her high notes sound forced as well. Mariah is miles ahead of Beyonce. FACT !!!!!! 4 is a flop, no hit singles and still haven’t crossed a million units. Gold in a matter of wks. is amazing for a holiday album, what sh*t are u on…

  45. Ty October 25, 2011

    YESSSSS! , Mariah is comming back so hard she gonna sing her a* * to thee top! #1 BABY

  46. Classy_Guy October 25, 2011

    Mariah is gonna drop another multi million seller and that’s that! F*** what any of you haiting low lives have to say! Mariah made her way to the top HONESTLY and without and gimmicks! The B**** didn’t have to dance, lie, steal, buy, or be someone she’s not to gain her success! All age did was stand on a stage with 2 things…A voice and a F****** Mic! And those 2 things helped her sale over 200 million worldwide! No one you haters have named has sold or even sold close to that…including Ms.Fakeonce! That B**** faked a pregnancy to help her triple aluminum 4 and it still didn’t help! 2012 is Mariahs year and no one will get in the way! Not Rihanna, Madonna, or anyone else dropping an album around that time!

  47. Ispsrro October 26, 2011

    Hopefully I’ll get my Mariah and Christina duet on either Mariah’s upcoming album or Christina’s … I cannot stop wondering what they would come up with

  48. LAX October 26, 2011

    @HATERS,,,,,,,Why R U Here???? Some want to put Mariah Down, and others want to Try and talk others who or working hard on their Carees down, What in the Pukkkkkkk is wrong with some of you dam Nutt Cases?????You never here
    people talking smack about Celine, Aretha, Barbara, Glady, Tina Therefore why or you Nut Cases Trying to bad mouth a Legend??????Marih do not deserve this S***!!!!!!!!!And as far as Rihanna goes her attitude is screw you and the horse you rode in on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  49. ummm no. October 26, 2011

    I seriously cannot comprehend the idiocy behind some of these comments! ROLF!!!! And some are multiples from the same people! The intelligence level of some of these people who are commenting is probably that of a fifth grader!

    Mariah I await your return!!! No need to give shade to those who already sit in the dark, your light shines bright MIMI!!

  50. JohnVidal October 26, 2011

    I mean, what the hell??????
    When a f****** Xmas album slay most of the music released that year (creative, vocally stunning and with plenty of different musical genres) then you know you are talking about somebody really big. Beyonce´s voice can´t see Mariah´s greatness not even nowadays (and of course not the songwritting and musicianship). Rihanna…. no need to say more LOL
    Mariah sold what you favorites will never sell with just pure music (voice and a mic, and songwritting skills). You know, what Adele is doing this 2011 but again and again. Only people on her level of succes are Madonna, Celine and Whitney. Like really stop bringing lessors names cos it´s just a NO.

  51. Billy October 26, 2011

    Mariah Carey is the most amazing singer of all time! her new album will be so amazing!!

  52. Justin October 26, 2011

    Looks like she’s going for the same ol’ same ol. Bummer. Wish she would experiment with some exciting producers/collaborators… instead of the same tired formula. I love Mimi, but she needs to come back KILLING IT in order to dominate the charts again!

  53. Andre October 26, 2011

    I LOVE me some MARIAH.

    ALL OF THE HATERS can keep writing about Mariah, it increases her visibility 😛

    Mariah has always said to believe in yourself and to never let any other people’s negativity affect you. SO SHAKE IT OFF

  54. Andre October 26, 2011

    Mariah had the longest weeks at number one from 1990-2000, and 2000-2010 with One Sweet Day and We Belong Together respectively.

    So please, to say she is crap is a joke. Rihanna is trash… she gets her tits out more than p*** stars….Rihanna needs to release 1000 singles in 1 year to sell enough…

  55. Carlos October 27, 2011

    Mariah is everything – the fact that people want to throw in newer artists like rih and bey when she was already a legend before they signed a record deal speaks volumes. Of all the legends Mariah came up with – Whitney Celine Madonna and janet – Mariahs the only one who can stand amongst the youngsters and compete. No memoirs didn’t sell millions but obsessed was top 10 (her 27th) and sold a million downloads.

    Who ever said Bey’s 4 was a triple aluminum seller – I love you. Genious.

  56. Website Design Dundee October 29, 2011

    Can’t wait for this! I love mariah!

  57. CLEM November 8, 2011
