‘Classic Mariah’, she of the perm, tight black dress and gospel-tinged R&B, is back and we couldn’t be happier. Her new album, Memoirs of An Imperfect Angel is full of funny sarcastic lyrics and smooth mid-tempo jams. Then we have “I Want To Know What Love Is“, a barn-raising power cover of the old Foreigner hit. If Mariah goes on tour again, I’ll definitely be phoning my karaoke girl posse from the concert so they can listen in (like I did on her last tour when she performed “Hero” – HI IRENE!). Fingers crossed the video features a heavy downpour.
Oh and the remixes. Three were released this week. The best one is the “Chu Fu Radio Mix” because it sounds like ’90s house and emphasizes the gospel choir. The only thing missing is the guest rapper. Listen to it below.
