Without Mariah Carey, there would be no Beyoncé, Rihanna, Katy



Where do I start with Mariah Carey?

Musically, Mariah Carey's had a tough run of late. Her long-delayed upcoming album, now titled Me. I Am Mariah... The Elusive Chanteuse, was slated to come out last spring before being pushed back several times. With one exception, its would-be lead singles failed to make a significant dent on the charts. Just a few weeks ago it sounded like Carey might pull a "Beyonce", and spring the album on us unawares, judging from a confusing interview she gave to Billboard.

Then last week, the album's release date, May 27, was finally confirmed by a teaser that is as strange and rambling as the album's title. The announcement has been called "weird", "insane", "bizarre", and "ridiculous", descriptors that are rarely far away when Carey comes up these days. If you're not a long-time fan, or are only familiar with Carey's current public persona, it's easy to see how such an awkward promotional move would elicit little more than an eye roll.
