Mariah Carey Is Copying Beyoncé's Secret Album Release ! (Except The Secret's Out Since She's Already Spilled The Beans!)

| Filed under: Music MinuteBeyonceMariah Carey

mariah carey new album secret release

Hmmm…the thing about Beyoncé's secret album drop was that it was a secret up until the very moment the album was dropped.

But Mariah Carey is doing her best to take a page out of Bey's book by releasing a secret album with the title, track listing, artwork and music coming out all at once…

…except the album isn't so secret since she's now told us about it. And we've already heard it's coming out May 6th??

But alas, Mariah is still keeping the project to herself until the big reveal:

"I have to be the one that announces this, especially the title … [The title comes from a] personal possession of mine that's part of an entity that I've had almost all my life."

She admitted the deets to Billboard magazine in which the cover article explains:

"After waiting five years between albums, Mariah Carey finally explains the personal struggle behind her all-at-once digital release, from that Idol debacle (‘bamboozled’) to a need for ‘uplifting’ music: ‘It’s all been a blur.’"

We're not sure if fans will judge her for following Queen Bey's lead, but hey, new music is new music!

And we're always excited for new music from Miz Mariah!!

    Didn't David Bowie do this long before they did? And he's a real musician.

    It's not supposed to be a "secret" album, just a digital album released the old fashion way before everything started leaking and ruining the whole experience. She's not copying anyone, she's a real artist and likes the fact that fans can really experience the whole body of work instead of this fast,superficial,single/image obsessed music business we have today.

    She is not copying anyone…Beyonce did create digital releases? Nor is the album a surprise!! She has been telling us about the album for two years. The only surprise will be the songs themselves.

    Perez, Mariah is as dated as you are. Mariah could not get a #1 single if the lives of her children depended on it. Sorry, she is so lame, and after her diva antics on Idol, I am no longer a fan. She is so desperate. She will NEVER be on Beyoncé's level.

    Actuaaly Beyoncé is NOT the first one to do this.Jared Leto & Thiry Seconds To Mars has been doing this for YEARS.In fact Beyoncé has copied 2 of their videos,The Kill & Hurricane.

    Can't wait for Mariah's new album. She's such a great songwriter and prouder.

    Its not a "Beyonce" surprise album. The title, artwork and tracks are being kept quiet until its released, kinda like old school getting it from the record store. We know its coming in May, just not the details.

    @ James…. you are very ignorant. Mariah will never be on Beyonce's level? Let me guess, you must me a young ignorant fool? Mariah has long surpassed whatever level you think Beyonce is at. Mariah's career spans over 20 years she has sold over 250 million records and has achieved 2 songs on the decade. Yes, Mariah is not as popular as she once was and Beyonce is VERY popular now but please don't put down the legend that is Mariah Carey. Go read a book!

    Mariah Carey does it again and scores her 17th #1 on the dance/club chart with "You're Mine (Eternal)"!!! Also , Beyoncé is not the first to do a "secret" album. David Bowie did it, and 30 Seconds to Mars did it. She just claims she's the first. That's why they call her Thiefonce. Cause she steels all the time. Video concepts, songwriting credits etc.

    Why the hell is she being compared to Beyonce's release? The Billboard cover doesnt even state that…Mariah aint saying there is a new suprise album but rather elements about the album (title, cover image, etc) will be revealed at once as a surprise from her to the musiclovers out there, including Beyonce whose is wise enought to praise a true musician like Mariah.

    Mariah seems a bit unwilling to accept that her demo is getting older and that she's no longer in the prime, professionally or physically. The desperate struggle to hang on to sexiness and the hopes of a secret release (squashed by the label) makes her seem even older than she really is. What would be attractive from her would to just roll with it and not fight it so much. And of course lay off the pills and the sauce. It continues to be a problem for her and nobody likes a mom who doesn't put her kids first.
