She now goes up against Usher, who is set to release his new album, Raymond v. Raymond, on the same date. Angels Advocate is Carey's 13th studio album and will feature all new remixes and duets of songs off her 2009 release, Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel.
According to a press release, Carey will release two songs this week: a duet of "Angels Cry" with Ne-Yo and "Up Out My Face," featuring Nicki Minaj. Videos for both songs, directed by Carey with her husband, Nick Cannon, hit the Web on Thursday (January 28), and will make their MTV debut on Friday. Currently, Carey is on her Angels Advocate tour, which is set to wrap up on February 27 at the Pearl Concert Theater in Las Vegas.
Cannon recently spoke to MTV News about his and Carey's hectic schedule, noting that they are planning to start a family once things slow down. "We absolutely plan to have a family," he said. "But we gotta prioritize, because that's a major, major priority. That's like the only priority in life, when you think about it, is starting and raising a family. We wanna make sure everything is out of the way and that we don't have any distractions."
