Mariah Carey :: E=MC2

If there’s one thing Mariah Carey knows how to do, it’s sell records and pump out hits. On E=MC2, she continues to roll with the new image she showed off on critically acclaimed The Emancipation of Mimi. This album has a little bit of everything, from R&B tracks like Migrate (feat. T-Pain), and Side Effects (feat. Young Jeezy), to the Reggae tune Cruise Control (feat. Damien Marley) and even some ’70s soul on I’m That Chick. Of course, there’s also more than enough of Mariah’s signature vocal acrobatics on ballads like I Stay in Love, and I Wish You Well. On E=MC2 Mariah teams up her classic voice with a stellar line-up of guest producers and performers, and proves she’s still got the hit-making formula down pat.

Fun Facts

  • Touch My Body was Mariah’s 18th number one hit, breaking the solo-artist [KWLINK 1007]record held by Elvis Presley and second to only The Beatles all-time.
  • Mariah has sold over 160 million records worldwide.
  • Much of the album was recorded in Anguilla, an island in the Caribbean.
  • Producers on the album include Danja, Jermaine Dupri, and Swizz Beats, among others.
  • iTunes offers a pre-order bonus track, 4real4real.
  • Hot Tracks

    Hilary McRae :: Through These Walls

    On Through These Walls, her debut album (available at Starbucks), Hilary McRae’s voice impresses as way more textured and soulful than her age (only 21) implies. Together with her long-time musical collaborator, producer / guitarist Zack Ziskin, Hilary has put together a stylish album with an impressive mix of Jazzy Pop / R&B tunes that seem like a blend of Joss Stone and Natasha Bedingfield. Her first single, Everyday, featuring superb horn riffs, is a yearning love song with a perfect Pop melody, and really sets her apart from other female artist’s her age. Through These Walls is an entertaining, cohesive album from a new artist with a style all her own, and definitely worth a listen.

    Fun Facts

  • Hilary wrote or co-wrote every song on Through These Walls.
  • Hilary attended Berklee College of Music.
  • She was a keyboardist and vocalist for Christian Castro during a tour of Central and South America.
  • Hilary lists Earth, Wind and Fire, Don Henley, and Ella Fitzgerald as [KWLINK 1380]musical influences.
  • Charlie Calello, who arranged the horns for the album, has worked with Frank Sinatra and Bruce Springsteen.
  • Hot Tracks

    Every Day (When Will You Be Mine), Consider Me Gone, Let’s Stop.

She is totally a million dollar find. Can you do any of those things? Anyway she's already won and words like these won't change that, or stop her from lighting the sky, because stars are dull compared to her. And I'm sure she's already dealt with haters and probably won't even read your post. Anyway my dad says that everyone who made it to the finals have futures ahead of them, and will earn millions of dollars and probably have shows in Vegas and everywhere else anyway. By the way, no, I don't only like her because she won. I was rooting for her from the first (well okay, maybe not first, but definitely second) act. We all have our fandoms to defend, and girl, what you said was harsh.
