Mariah Carey is the latest artist to face the dreaded album release date push-back (though, really, this is nothing new for her). Despite the lead singles from MC’s Angel’s Advocate doing the rounds online already—the finger-waving “Up Out My Face” featuring the sassy raps of Nicki Minaj, and the smooth Ne-Yo-assisted ballad “Angels Cry”—the remix album has now been bumped back a few weeks, says her main fan site.
Is that a screamin’ Mimi we hear?
“Mariah’s new album Angel’s Advocate, originally scheduled for release on Tuesday, February 23, 2010, has been pushed back,” announced Mariah Daily Journal in a post today. “The new release date currently is Tuesday, March 9, 2010.”
Angel’s Advocate was initially set to go toe-to-toe with Erykah Badu’s New Amerykah Part II: Return of the Ankh, but as Rap-Up now reports, that LP has been pushed back, as well (to March 16).
Now Mimi will have a diva-off with new releases from Monica and Natalie Merchant—that is, if the tipsy speech-giver’s record doesn’t get delayed once again.
