Mariah Carey is expected to release a remixed edition of her album Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel in February, following the disappointing sales of the original. The album will reportedly be available for an exclusive purchase through Target stores.
According to Rap-Up.com, her manager, Chris Lighty, tweeted the news about the album, which was originally released in September. He wrote, "Listen Memoirs remix LP February ... no date set working on Target exclusive." The Web site further reports that the album will feature collaborations with Swizz Beatz and Christopher "Tricky" Stewart, as well as Trey Songz, R. Kelly, T-Pain, Gucci Mane and OJ Da Juiceman.
"There's gonna be remixes to everything," Stewart recently told Rap-Up. "I'm actually doing some remixing myself currently 'cause some of these records were so much fun to make. It's easy to go in and do a remix."
The producer said that there's one track he really wants to get his hands on. "I'm gonna do a remix to 'I Want to Know What Love Is' myself," he said. "I'mma raise the tempo up. I'mma try to make it into something else. ... Once I get the beat and if it calls for the right person, I can get anybody on the phone I want to right now, so I will be using my Rolodex for that."
Songz also dished to the Web site about collaborating with Carey, saying that he worked with her on the song "Inseparable." "I actually only had a day to do it. I did it on my day off. [They were] very professional, very adamant on wanting to get it done," Songz explained. "They made sure we had all we needed. I just went in and got it done."
