Mariah Carey Eyes Cardi B, Lil' Kim Collaboration
Mariah Carey is eyeing an all-star collaboration with two of the biggest female MCs.
During her appearance on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen” on Monday (Nov. 19) to promote her new album Caution, the pop icon was asked if she would ever collaborate with Cardi B.
“I would love for that to happen,” said MC. “The song you guys were just playing, ‘A No No,’ which was originally Lil’ Kim’s song—we love Kim—I was hoping that the three of us could do a collaboration.”
“A No No” appears on Carey’s new album Caution. The song samples Lil’ Kim’s 1997 single “Crush on You” featuring The Notorious B.I.G. and Lil Cease.
And it sounds like a collaboration with Cardi and Kim may not be farfetched. “If nobody puts it together, it’s not gonna happen,” added Mimi. “Things happen real quick these days, so you never know.”
Mariah has worked with many female MCs throughout her career including Missy Elliott, Nicki Minaj, Da Brat, Shawnna, and more.
During her appearance on “WWHL,” she also said that she may perform music off Glitter for the first time live. She has not included any songs off the 2011 soundtrack in any of her live shows, but that could change now that the album hit No. 1 on iTunes.
“Since the Lambily got Glitter to No. 1, they’ve lifted this huge burden of having to feel like, ‘Oh, I can’t do Glitter ’cause nobody knows it or whatever,'” she said. “I’m gonna say yes, we’re gonna put together perhaps a medley.”
Fans may be able to catch the Glitter medley when Carey hits the road on her “Caution World Tour,” starting Feb. 27 in Dallas, Tex.
