Diva supreme Mariah Carey kicked off the live campaign for new album ‘Me. I Am Mariah…The Elusive Chanteuse’ moments ago on the Today Show Summer Concert Series.

Backed by a full band and army of dancers, the 44-year-old delivered performances of  chart-toppers ‘Touch My Body’ and ‘Always Be My Baby’, as well as new song ‘You Don’t Know What To Do’. Disco inspired, the latter saw the star joined by rapper Wale.

As with all Mimi showings, a mixture of live and studio vocals, as well as many a “festive” moment await after the jump…

Keep refreshing for more performances!

‘You Don’t Know What To Do (ft. Wale)’

‘Touch My Body’

‘Always Be My Baby’

    You Don’t Know What to Do is her Blurred Lines.

    Why this wasn’t the FIRST OFFICIAL SINGLE is beyond me.
    It’s a perfect summer song. THOSE VOCALS! Even with Wale’s hideous lipstinking, everything was perfection

      Honey, blurred lines isn’t the first second or 20th song in the past few years to have a vintage throwback feel to it so idk why y’all keep saying “this is like blurred lines”. Uh guaranteed mariah wasn’t inspired by blurred lines she was inspired by music of the 69’s/70’s JUST LIKE blurred lines was. Blurred lines is nothing new or groundbreaking it is an ode to past music. I wish y’all would do a lil more music research, if anything this is a continuation of Mariah’s song from 2008 “I’m that chick” .

    Love Mariah…. Tired of the less than “live” performances. I don’t get it. Even the late great Whitney sang live when she lost most of her voice and here Mariah is… smh.. It distracts from what could be some cool songs but can’t get passed this lazy performing.

    • Dossome May 16, 2014

      You’ve not watched the video clearly

    • n0_mayum May 16, 2014

      I totally agree! Whitney sang live good or bad voice. Mariah is not a dancer and she has no excuse to be onstage miming for her life! She’s cheating the fans out of a LIVE performance and not challenging herself vocally. MC, turn on your mic already!!

  3. Grump May 16, 2014

    This song is EVERYTHING.

  4. Blue Ivy Carter-Rodriguez May 16, 2014

    When will Basic Perry ever sound good live? Shading Mariah when your sounds like howling monkey giving birth.

    Good performance though!

  8. kingb May 16, 2014

    I miss the good old Mariah days.. not live
    (she doesn’t dance so…why not live?), ugly/same dress, trying to hard to be s***,
    same antics, not impressed. The only good thing going for her project right now are loyal fans. Everything else not great.

  9. H2O May 16, 2014

    the song is kinda ok.. I was surprised when Samantha said it’s a new song it sounds soooo old

  10. Kemar (@S_C_Jr on Twitter) May 16, 2014

    I really enjoyed Mariah this morning. I like that “You Don’t Know What To Do” song. It kinda reminds me of “I’m That Chick” from E=MC2. I really could’ve done without the Wale feature tho. Like seriously. You don’t need a feature every time; especially annoying ass Wale. Anyway, bring on May 27th. I’m ready for this new album! It’s been such a long process!

  11. Prismatic May 16, 2014

    Stinky, boring, lipped performance but is Mariah so i aint surprised. She’s good for a throwback! *plays Dreamlover*

    • did you say bieber,one direction,gaga,j.cole,miley,rita ora YMCMB austin mahone,or bey(my faves are in my name…drag stan) May 16, 2014

    • Realest May 16, 2014

      But see how you can play “Dreamlover” 20 years later.. We will not be able to play ANY of Katy’s kids boo tunes in 20 years.. Not one.

  12. Mark111 May 16, 2014

    Well it was LIVE, so i enjoyed it.

  13. King _rico May 16, 2014

      • King _rico May 16, 2014

  15. skyfall May 16, 2014

    Not the stay kitties lose up trying to shade Mariah

  16. Dossome May 16, 2014

    Lmaaaao,trolls swarming in already

    • Prismatic May 16, 2014

      The only trolls are the miserable scum who brought up Queen Katy in a post that has absolutely nothing to do with her. She’s relevant, Mariah ain’t. Deal with it faggys.

  17. Nope May 16, 2014

    TGJ should just come out and admit they hate Mariah. Yall claim you like her and then do nothing but shade her CONSTANTLY. At least be honest and admit you don’t like her. Fake ass muthafukas !

    • Terny May 16, 2014

      I see no lies here…

  18. skyfall May 16, 2014

    Not the stay kitties lose up trying to shade Mariah about her performance, when Katy is literally struggling to sell out venues for her fopmastic tour lol. The only thing that basic b**** is good for payola #1s and kids choice awards.

    • Prismatic May 16, 2014

      Struggling to sell out what venues? I heard Mariah is doing a world tour, now that would be a struggle. She won’t even be able to sell out an elementary school auditorium.

      • skyfall May 16, 2014

        girl sit, Mariah has accomplish and did everything that Katy is trying to do. She has the record sales, records, acclaim, grammies etc. Why is it that at the age of 30 Mariah was selling out stadiums while Katy is struggling to sell arenas

  19. Trash Katy May 16, 2014

    Katy = Coke head white trash in a trailer.

  20. King _rico May 16, 2014

    Slutriah

    • Prismatic May 16, 2014

      Her receipts are from 16 B.C.
      They so old that they’re written on a scroll.

  21. Prismatic May 16, 2014

    LMAO I have you b****** pressed at 6:54 in the morning. Fume you geriatric b******! Someone woke up on the wrong side of the hospital bed!! Don’t break a hip you elderly lambs!

      1. Ciara sold 57,000 copies sold first week and still hasn’t crossed the 400k locally or global.
      2.Body Party was a failure,so much so that her team had to use streams to get it’s Gold certification
      3.Why hasn’t Ciara the album sold a tenth of what Beyonce the album has sold?
      4.Why hasn’t she sold a tenth of what Prism sold?
      5.Why hasn’t any of her albums or singles got any certifications since 2009? Her last Top 10 is still not certified in the US! Hell her last top ten was in 2009, after how many failed singles?
      Stop dragging yourself, Ciara is beyond irrelevant. The only people who stan for her are ass ghetto queens! The general public hasn’t been here for her for almost a decade!

      The C-Squad, the poor man’s Hive!

      • Molly May 16, 2014

        She’s so irrelevant that you dedicated all this to me & my fav kiiiiii no one wants to be the hive you guys are trash goodbye.

  28. Todd May 16, 2014

  29. King _rico May 16, 2014

      • Molly May 16, 2014

        @KingFreako You never gotta feel sorry for me f***, Like i said since Ciara is so irrelevant than why couldn’t Xo, Partition, or Pretty Hurts outpeak Body Party… lol @H20 Yet that shitt still made no impact in my country.

      • H2O May 16, 2014

        Well “Bathroom Concert” outpeaked “XO” in America =/= “Bathroom Concert” outpeaked “XO” period …

  30. H2O May 16, 2014

    I may never understand how Bey “will always be a lessor to” MooRiP but okay … As long as she’s out-wealthing her at a much younger age and not stopping anytime soon, I could care less ..

    • Dossome May 16, 2014

      Yea right…and how is their networths affecting your life?

      • H2O May 16, 2014

        Exactly like how sales apparently make you jizz your pants ..

  37. Blue Ivy Carter-Rodriguez May 16, 2014

    The Basic Perry stans kill me, when was the last time that howling monkey sang on key? She can’t even sing Dark Horse without lip synching. I never seen a artist that sound bad on their studio vocals and live vocals !!!

    • Molly May 16, 2014

      Not to much on Katy she’s definitely a better singer then fuckking Kesha.

    • King _rico May 16, 2014

      Boo give it up!!
      Ur late

    • Slayty Perry (Prismatic World Tour) May 16, 2014

      Death @ you trying to start a Stan war to drag Katy but coming in late when the trolls take the bait. Try again boo.

  38. Slayty Perry (Prismatic World Tour) May 16, 2014

    Lmao @ one of Slayriah’s multiple accounts randomly coming for Katy when she has nothing to do this post. How sad. Let me play Thirsty in memory of y’all. Anyways, I’m just glad Mariah is promoting her album. I’m slightly annoyed to discover there are better tracks on her album then You’re Mine that could’ve been singles though. She needs another #Beautiful type hit before the album drops.

  39. Slayty Perry (Prismatic World Tour) May 16, 2014

    And Skyfall, I need receipts of Katy struggling to sell out arenas or Teenage Dream not being past 6 million worldwide because baby girl I have receipts that state otherwise.

  40. Blue Ivy Carter-Rodriguez May 16, 2014

    “Roar..Roar… Roar…roarrrrr…. I got the eye of the tiger”

        Yes I have a younger sister and those vocals Katy be giving me are just like Dora’s. Dry and robotic

  41. metzo May 16, 2014

    Omg, Touch my body brings back so many good memories. She sounded good too. I hope her album does well, with all the goOd PROMO.

    Why do people have to be so damn volatile on this site? Like get over yourselves and get the F**** up off the queen’s post if you can’t be polite!

    *exits*

    • Molly May 16, 2014

      Leaving so soon? what did you think about the performances.

      • King _rico May 16, 2014

        Boring , stale, weak vocals

      • Molly May 16, 2014

        Dead you are so bothered.

  43. King _rico May 16, 2014

    Poor slutriah can’t take the heat!!!
    Bye weak sauce just like ur Fav

  44. Blue Ivy Carter-Rodriguez May 16, 2014

    But why are the rabies kats do bothered by my comments. Your fave does sound like she got a class of c** stuck in her throat. It makes sense since many users on here said she sucked d*** for a record deal while everyone else’s fave just showcased a vocal!! Lmfao

    • Blue Ivy Carter-Rodriguez May 16, 2014

      So bothered*

      • Blue Ivy Carter-Rodriguez May 16, 2014

        Bothered and glass* I swear I hate iPhone, I’m switching to Android

      • Molly May 16, 2014

        Get the galaxy S5 lol

  45. Casual May 16, 2014

    If there is one thing Mariah Carey is known for, it’s learning and adapting from her mistakes. I had a feeling she had something good in store for her album’s launch.

  46. Minaj21 May 16, 2014

    I really did not enjoy thirsty tbh but let’s see what she is gonna do with this new era.

  47. Overdose May 16, 2014

    This was boring

  48. Bubbles the chimp May 16, 2014

    Messy, over rated whale lip syncing for her life tbh.

    • Todd May 16, 2014

      Have you even played any of the 3 videos?
      You guys are so happy while bashing others,good for you all!

  49. TRUTH May 16, 2014

    I love how people with real, genuine talent get up and sing and people call it “boring”. I guess Mariah should dance around like a whoooore and do pusszy pop dances to be entertaining. SMH. What CHILDREN today consider entertaining today is pathetic. This generation doesn’t know what to do with real talent.

  50. Marco May 16, 2014

    She forgot the words to her freaking songs….. Washed up…..

    • OMG Logic! May 16, 2014

      What is that thing?

  51. JOHNVIDAL (Iconic chanteuse is coming) May 16, 2014

    She did great and sounded wonderful in Touch my Body and Always be my Baby.
    Now let me listen to the new song. So excited for the album!

  52. Realest May 16, 2014

    25 years into the game Mariah Carey is still a strong force in current music. She may not be the dominating force that she was before in the 90’s but she still commands a strong audience (see concert), she can still s*** down huge iconic territories like her Time Square takeover, she can still turn out decent charting hits (though not like before #Beautiful Was still a hit) and she is still on the minds of Beyonce’s, Katy’s, Rihanna’s, Nicki’s Gaga’s and all the other younger girls fans, minds. I don’t see shania twain on their minds.. Whitney Houston or Celine Dion either. Only mariah!!!! That’s because ms Carey is so musical that even with her vocal decline she can stay in touch with current musical climates and reinvent her sound. She has done it since her debut, slightly reinventing this and that audibly which has brought her all this way.. Say what you want but y’all are the ones pressed over some old 40 something year old diva worth 500 mill. When will your fav though?

    Ive been getting into Mariah’s discography after she dropped thirsty and she truly is a phenomenal act.

    And you can still play songs she made 20 years ago and they sound current and relevant.

      And these performances were good & if she was lip syncing I couldn’t tell.

      Yep, her early 90s career up until Butterfly was incredible. And to think she wrote most of it. Her first album – Butterfly were excellent. She lost her way during & after Rainbow. The Emancipation Of Mimi was great tho!
