  • Mariah Carey - The Emancipation Of Mimi

    FABULOUS album title!

    - Major dollops of hip-hop.
    - Carey offers less vocal acrobatics then on recent efforts, proving that less can indeed be more.
    - The new set will be preceded by the single "Say Something," produced by the Neptunes and featuring Snoop Dogg. Due to hit U.S. radio outlets in January, the slinky, sensual hip-hop jam sports intermittent machine gun-styled beats,
    - A longtime supporter of club remixes, Carey has commissioned David Morales, Peter Rauhofer and former Pound Boys member David C. to remix "Say Something."
    - Other album tracks include the Jermaine Dupri-produced "Get Your Number," a feel-good, dancefloor-primed R&B number that smartly references Imagination's early-'80s top 30 R&B hit, "Just an Illusion." It spotlights the vocals of Dupri, who also helmed the track "Shake You Off."
    - Carey handled the bulk of the writing on "The Emancipation of Mimi" and also produced the power ballad "Mine Again." Less adult contemporary and more Gladys Knight, the old-school song is signature Carey.
    - The album also features contributions from producer Kanye West and rappers Nelly and Twista.

      Okay, I know I've had a go at Mariah for her exceedingly camp album titles before (come on - Glitter, Rainbow, Daydream ) but this is just so random? Who the f**k is Mimi and why does she need to be set free? :-?

        LOL! Like it! It's half Maria-ish (Glitter, Charmbracalet, etc.) half serious (Emancipation).

        Mimi is her. It's like a nickname (like Damita Jo). Is her hip-hop her.
        Cam'ron mentioned Mimi in "Boy".

        Also, in urban language, "mimi" is or a small asian that likes to tell stories with no point or a cute and sexy babe that exhibits extreme gooorgeousness.

                        It sounds like an Indie movie title.

                        If it was simply 'The Emancipation' it'd be far and away, the best title she's ever come up with. Not lovin' this 'Of Mimi' ish.
                        Baaaaad relationship??

                          I perfectly agree with what David said - 'The Emancipation' on its own would be perfectly fine... who the hell is Mimi?

                            Ok. Here we go...
                            Mariah sent this message to everyone on the fanclub.

                            Originally posted by Mimi

                            So obviously my album title has leaked out way before I intended. ( the single isn't even out yet...hello???)

                            Knowing that the title was very different for me and might cause some confusion, I had a whole explanation to go along with the press release which was supposed to come out in February, but basically that got foiled.

                            So here it is..."Mimi" is a very personal nickname only used by those closest to me...just one of those little things that I've kept for myself in an attempt to have some delineation between a public persona and a private life.

                            By naming the album "The Emancipation of Mimi" I am letting my guard down and inviting my fans to be that much closer to me..Most importantly, I am celebrating the fact that I've grown into a person & artist who no longer feels imprisoned by my insecurities or compelled to try and live up to someone else's vision of "mariah carey" I now feel I can honestly say "this is me, the real me, take it or leave It " For the first time in my life, I feel free and unashamed to be who I really am.. And that's what the music of this album and it's title reflect..

                            As always,I love ya,appreciate ya,and I enjoy ya!!!
                            MC a.k.a Mimi.
                            So I kinda understand it a bit more, but I miss her cute one word album titles! :(
                            When you left I lost a part of me, It's still so hard to believe

                              B.Fly... now Mimi? :-?

                              'The Emancipation of B.Fly' :-? Don't like that one either...

                              I still stand by my comment and say 'The Emancipation' is a better album title!

                                Awwwwwww - I kinda like it now...deep Mimi, deep! I love the way she calls us fans lambs - shows off her crazyness!

                                I'm actually really looking forward to hearing this now, particularly if it's this personal I'm guessing it will make the ballads all the better Do ya think she'll go under the name of Mimi instead of Mariah?

                                  I really have high hopes for the album. It sounds like it will be her best in ages.

                                  And what's your lamb name Ollie?
                                  If you dom't have one, you're not a true lamb!

                                        I thought this topic would be a joke, but it's not --> even more .

                                        I think just "Emancipation" would be too stiff.

                                              So in other words she's copying Janet Jackson's "Damita Jo" idea?
                                              "I want a man who's kind and understanding. Is that too much to ask of a millionaire?"

                                                  Insiders have confirmed Jermaine Dupri, Kanye West and Pharrell Williams are all on the new joint and that this is quite possibly the strongest material Mariah has ever recorded.
                                                  LA Reid, the top boy at Island/Def Jam in the US was so impressed by the work Mariah was doing, that he became personally involved in the project and is confident this will be that record that puts Mariah back on top.......
