Mariah Carey: Talks about 'Foreigner' cover
Famous singer Mariah Carey insists that her new album of heartbreak and betrayal, Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel, has nothing to do with her relationship with husband Nick Cannon. However she also maintains that her hubby does not deserve sole credit for her second single, a cover of Foreigner's "I Want to Know What Love Is," in spite of some rumored suggestions to the contrary.
Sources have thrown light on this news of Mariah Carey. Carey told a famous music channel, giving reference to the comments that she had made in an earlier radio interview,"Nick says that he suggested it." "He says that it was his idea."
Cannon was still a toddler when Foreigner's single dropped in 1984, while Carey was six short years away from releasing her self-titled debut album. The couple's eleven years of age difference probably meant that they had differing first impressions of the '80s pop hit. However now it seems that they definitely have conflicting recollections of how this newest version of the song came to be.
At most, Carey said that Cannon deserves only partial credit. She explained, "You know what it is?" "We're also friends, and so we talk about things. We talk about music, we talk about videos. There's nothing that we don't really have in common in a lot of ways. So yes, we did have a conversation about the Foreigner song, but I will not say that it was completely his idea. Sorry! I love you, Nick, but I'm not saying that!"
During the interview, Mariah Carey also addressed the case of the album's missing songs. Carey had worked with popular producers like Timbaland and Jermaine Dupri on a number of tracks, none of which made it onto Memoirs. The songstress assured all her fans, that they'll soon get a chance to give everything a listen.
She teased by saying,"They're not on the album, but we have a special something planned that [record exec] L.A. Reid would be very angry with me if I discussed right now on MTV," "But for the fans, there will be more than one Timbaland track and at least one J.D. track."
