Mariah Carey Teams With Brett Ratner For New Music Video & Movie

Published: Saturday 28th Mar 2015 by Sam

With the debut of Mariah Carey‘s Las Vegas show fast approaching, the diva is clocking up ample overtime as she pieces together its many components.

As reported, the singer’s ‘#1’s’ residency in Sin City will be accompanied by a refreshed greatest hits collection, which will also include new material.

For the release, which will arrive in May to coincide with the show’s kick-off, Mimi has re-teamed with director Brett Ratner to shoot a brand new music video.

Details below…

mariah-carey-brett-ratner-thatgrapejuiceWhile in St. Barts to celebrate the singer’s 46th birthday yesterday, the pair called in to Laser 101 radio to discuss work and play.

Beyond the “anniversary” festivities, the duo revealed that they are set to film a visual for a new song from the upcoming LP. They also confirmed that there are working on a movie project based on Carey’s iconic single ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You.’

Listen to the interview here (from the 3.01 mark)…

Needless to say, Mariah’s new deal with Epic Records is seeing her hit the ground running. And we love it!

While it’s unknown if the contact is traditional or a 360, it’s clear the M-O is to smartly leverage Carey’s classic content towards the launch of her new-new.

As for reuniting With Mr Ratner, we totally co-sign. Visuals have been an issue for Mimi is recent years, yet we’re comforted by the awesome track-record the two have. Indeed, it was Brett who was at the helm of these…

    It fits her… I guess.

  2. The Beysus Impact March 28, 2015

    She’s quite a good actress. She needs to do more movies.

    • Mark111 March 28, 2015

      I agree, I didn’t think she was bad in Glitter nor was it a bad movie.

      • LOL March 28, 2015


      • TheElusiveLamb March 28, 2015

        If Glitter had a script or was a comedy, then I would agree with you.

      Does anyone know the name of the movie Mimi was in with another famous actress where they played waitresses in New Jersey or something?

      Mimi was great in that movie and Precious. She should do more movies. I think Mariah and Janet are pretty good actresses.

      Speaking of both ladies, I believe Janet was to play the part Mimi got in “precious” but had to pull out for her album and tour at the time..

        I loved wise girls. I had to see if I can Netflix it or maybe but it that was a good movie!

      • TheElusiveLamb March 28, 2015

  9. AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig March 28, 2015

    So who are we gonna believe? Sam or Patricia… you know the woman who actually gave birth to her :/
    Mariah was born in 1970, her mother confirmed it on national television when they were on Oprah.

    Friday Update #2:*Sources tell BoxOffice that*Home*and*Get Hard*are both off to strong starts.

    Home*will easily win the weekend with a total that could end up between $45 million-$50 million based on early Friday results. That would mark a huge win for DreamWorks following the disappointing performance of*How to Train Your Dragon 2*and*Penguins of Madagascar*last year.

    Get Hard*is headed for a $35 million debut. Kevin Hart continues to be a solid earner, while Will Ferrell receives a much-needed boost.

    Check back tomorrow for official studio numbers and updated projections.…s-up-18m-start

    Why does she even bother. Her career has BEEN over – anything she releases will be a flop. She really sucks!
