After a few false starts, Mariah Carey’s Angels Advocate has been permanently grounded. Instead of releasing the star-studded remix album, the pop diva has turned her focus toward a new studio project.
The ill-fated collection of remixes from last year’s Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel had most recently been set for a March 30 release exclusively at Target stores and iTunes. It was to feature contributions from Snoop Dogg, R. Kelly, Jodeci, Mary J. Blige, and Ludacris, among others.
According to Mariah Daily, select singles may be released from the shelved album. “It won’t go to waste,” assures Carey’s management. Two singles, “Up Out My Face” featuring Nicki Minaj and the Ne-Yo-assisted “Angels Cry” have already been sent to iTunes, while several other tracks have leaked.
But have no fear, lambs. The songbird is already planning her next move. “We are looking to go possibly to another studio album or Christmas album,” says the source. “The decision hasn’t been totally made yet. It’s a creative process that cannot be rushed.”
