Mariah Carey: 'Angels Advocate' remix album cancelled

Mariah-CareyImage Credit: Bill Davila/startraksphoto.comMariah Carey’s label tells the Music Mix that the rumors are true: Angels Advocate, the remix set that the diva was planning to drop next Tuesday, will no longer be released as an album. Multiple singles (“Up Out My Face” featuring Nicki Minaj, “Angels Cry” featuring Ne-Yo) have already surfaced from the project, which was to have paired Carey with new collaborators on reworked tunes from last fall’s Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel. Now Island Def Jam’s plan is to continue putting out that new material as stand-alone singles instead of packaging it together into a full-length CD as originally intended. “We’ve released a few of Mariah’s hot remixes from Memoirs on iTunes and Mariah’s back in the studio working on some new surprises,” says a label rep. Angels Advocate was previously delayed to this month from a late February release date.

    Who cares? Mariah has really fell off lately…

    • Hoola

      Your grasp of the English language is laughable.

  • GA

    I care. She’ll keep making hits!

  • Mikel

    I was waiting for it.

  • dawn

    time to reinvent yourself mariah!

  • Kalie

    That’s disappointing. I really like the singles she’s released so far. I’m looking forward to the new ones, but an entire album would’ve been great.

  • junior

    Mariah, hun, take a break. No one is paying attention to you right now. But go rest and come back with something amazing and you’ll be No. 1 in no time!

  • Q.H.

    To translate:
    Article Start
    Album and singles from therein all tanked. Remix album would be colossal financial disaster. Record company smartened up.
    Article End

  • MC

    • Ali

      this songs remembers me of my best fnreid.. she use to sing this to me.. now that she passed away i sing this song to her. Still Love you Ana <3 always in my heart

  • This is not a remix

    This would be a great remix for MC: Get some class back into your act.

  • TE

    I’m sure the label wants Mariah to have new material for a new album. They would have had to pay her her advance for this remix album. I believe her adavanced is around $7 million dollars an album plus royalties off sales and for writing the songs. A Mariah album is expensive to produce, but she is worth it….So time for some new material. I look forward to it. Memiors is a great album with some sincere songs.

  • Jed

    Mariah…cancel your career and do us all a favor and just go away.

    • Kalie

      She’s one of the best-selling artists of all time. I don’t think she needs to go away any time soon.

    • wakeforce

      Still is still sell out arenas, and her latest album is terrific. Why don’t you go away, jed. Nobody cares what you think.

      • wakeforce

        She is still selling out arenas…

    • Preston

      I don’t think Mariah will read your comment about canceling her career. She will continue to make more exciting music for the masses out there.


    Mariah is the McDonalds of the music industry. Alot served but full of empty calories.

    • woody

      wow, how long have you been waiting to use that one? lol.
