Mariah Carey Asks Gucci Mane To Give “Obsessed” Some CPR

Mariah Carey’s “Obsessed” is already floundering in its second week on the Hot 100, dipping to No. 20 this week after debuting at a not-great-for-her No. 11 seven days ago. Which is why I guess the Gucci Mane remix and a new cut of the track’s Brett Ratner-directed video have been rush-released. The new clip ditches much of the “Mariah as a man stalking Mariah as a pop star” plot in favor of Mimi reclining awkwardly on a table and lip-syncing; Gucci Mane was apparently just told to stand around and contribute the ability to wave a champagne bottle around, a kinda-awful verse, and a lot of “hooo”-ing while Mariah is trying to sing. I didn’t so much mind “Obsessed” in its original form, but this remix was making me check the “time elapsed” counter on the embedded video from about the :53 point on. Clip after the jump. So, uh… odds on when the next release-delay announcement will happen? My guess is today at around 5 p.m., just to bury the bad news.Video: Mariah Carey feat. Gucci Mane, “Obsessed” [Nah Right]
