Hi dahhhhlings, as promised I present to you... The megarate of Mariah's The Emancipation Of Mimi.

 

A short history of the album:

Spoiler

Following her departure from Columbia Records (part of Sony Music), life hadn't been kind to Mariah. She had worked tirelessly on her eight studio album, Glitter, which was also the soundtrack to her first movie. The soundtrack was plagued by many issues. Her ex-husband Tommy Mottola attempted to sabotage the project multiple times, the soundtrack was critically panned, the movie got a disastrous reception, Carey's relationship with Latin singer Luis Miguel had ended and Carey"s single success had abruptly come to an end. On top of that she had a emotional and physical breakdown and had to check into a hospital in Connecticut. After that entire debacle she was paid by Virgin Records to leave the label, she then signed to Island Records and released her ninth studio album Charmbracelet. The album was also unsuccessful, with many music critics argued that Mariah had lost her voice and that her career was over.

When preparing for her tenth album Mariah enlisted a select list of producers, like The Neptunes (I'm A Slave 4 U, Hot In Herre, Rock Your Body), Kanye West and James Wright. By November 2004 she had enough material for the album and Say Somethin' was set to be the lead single. At the last minute L.A. Reid, the head of Island Records, suggested she should records a few more strong songs with Jermaine Dupri, as he thought Mariah's best songs were made with Jermaine. She travelled to Atlanta for a 3-day recording session and they made the songs Shake It Off and Get Your Number. After returning she went back once more and created the songs We Belong Together and It's Like That, which became the eventual lead single.

In January 2005 It's Like That was released as the lead single. It marked Mariah's return to chart success and started a string of hit songs, with only the exception of sixth and final single Say Somethin'/Fly Like A Bird. The album was massively successful as well, becoming the fourth biggest album of 2005 in the US and worldwide. It has sold over 10 million copies.
