Mariah Carey Dishes on Ariana Grande, Beyoncé, & New Music on ‘The Breakfast Club’

Mariah Carey and The Breakfast Club

After launching her new single “You’re Mine (Eternal)” this morning, Mariah Carey paid a visit to the notorious “Breakfast Club.” After taking a “splash” of champagne and making sure the lighting was right, the pop diva fielded questions from Charlamagne Tha God, Angela Yee, and DJ Envy.

During the 38-minute interview, she discussed her experience on “American Idol” (Mariah says she was paid more than $12 million), her husband Nick Cannon, her “diva fit,” and what she thinks of Ariana Grande, who’s often compared to Mariah.

Trey Songz, who’s featured on the remix to “You’re Mine,” also called in to discuss his collaboration with Mariah. “I’m happy to be on the record,” said the R&B crooner. “I’m very much happy to share any musical space with you, a living icon. To be involved with your latest is such a blessing.”

You're Mine (Eternal)

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Mariah Carey returns with a stone groove smash for all the lovers. The big-voiced diva gets swept away by an intoxicating love on “You’re Mine (Eternal),” the new single off her first album in five years, due May 6.

“I can’t seem to live without your love / Suffocating here by myself / Dying for your touch,” sings an emotional Mimi on the hard-hitting ballad, which she wrote and produced with Rodney Jerkins.

Things get even hotter on the R&B remix, on which she trades passionate verses with heartthrob Trey Songz.

The video, shot at Puerto Rico’s El Yungue National Rain Forest, will premiere today at 7:50 p.m. EST on MTV, while the remix video debuts Friday on BET’s “106 & Park.”

Rap-Up TV: Wale Talks New Album, Mariah Carey Collaboration

Wale has a new attitude for the new year. After taking a break from social media and confronting his critics, the MMG rapper has turned the focus back on his music and fans, which he outlined in a letter on his blog. During the launch of “REVOLT Live,” Rap-Up TV asked him about his new outlook.

“That’s where my energy’s going, back into the fans and back into the music. I’m not worrying about the small things anymore,” he said.

He was recently in the studio with Mariah Carey, but wouldn’t reveal too much. “That’s top secret for now,” he said, adding that the collaboration is for the pop diva’s upcoming album.

He is also working on his fourth LP The Album About Nothing, which he plans to drop at the end of summer.

“It’s pretty good, but you’re never done until you’re done,” he said.
