Trey Songz, T-Pain and More to Remix Mariah Carey’s ‘Memoirs’
Mariah Carey will release her latest album 'Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel' for a second time this coming February in an effort to recoup low album sales. The project will be a remixed version of the original available exclusively at Target stores.
Mariah's manager Chris Lightly recently revealed information about the upcoming project via his Twitter account. "Listen 'Memoirs' remix LP February ... No date set, working on Target exclusive." The website Rap-Up.com reports that Lightly also revealed a list of producers and artists that will be part of the project that includes Swizz Beatz, Christopher "Tricky" Stewart, Trey Songz, R. Kelly, T-Pain, Gucci Mane, and OJ Da Juiceman.
"There's gonna be remixes to everything," Stewart told Rap-Up.com. "I'm actually doing some remixing myself currently 'cause some of these records were so much fun to make. It's easy to go in and do a remix." Tricky also confessed that there's one song in particular he wants to put his touch on. "I'm gonna do a remix to 'I Want to Know What Love Is' myself," he said. I'mma raise the tempo up. I'mma try to make it into something else ... Once I get the beat and if it calls for the right person, I can get anybody on the phone I want to right now, so I will be using my Rolodex for that."
Trey Songz also revealed to Rap-Up.com that he will be having a hand in the new project on the track 'Inseparable.' "I actually only had a day to do it. I did it on my day off. [They were] very professional, very adamant on wanting to get it done," he said. "They made sure we had all we needed. I just went in and got it done."
