I'm sure singer Mariah Carey have pissed her entire fan base off by announcing that her new album will not hit stores until next year. You may recall that Mariah released her new single 'Triumphant' a few weeks ago with various remixes following it. I honestly hope that the pushback will allow Mariah to produce more quality material versus music similar to the track that she threw out.
According to BillBoard:
Previewing the multiple versions of the single — co-written and co-produced by Carey, Jermaine Dupri and Bryan-Michael Cox — reveals the diversity of musical genres expected on her untitled 14th album, tentatively due in March 2013. According to Carey manager Randy Jackson, releasing the three different versions of “Triumphant” speaks to her ability to cater to multiple audiences and radio formats.
This could be a smart move for Mariah being that American Idol will be live during that time period. It is more than safe to assume that she will do various performances on the show since she is a new judge. Why did Mariah's label release a single more than six months from the album release date?
Are you disappointed by the album release date?
