MARIAH CAREY LAUNCHES NEXT TWO HIT SINGLES FROM THE EMANCIPATION OF MIMI

SAY SOMETHIN' FEATURING SNOOP DOGG, PRODUCED BY THE NEPTUNES, GOES TO TOP 40/RHYTHMIC RADIO – VIDEO SHOT ON LOCATION IN PARIS, STARRING MARIAH, PHARRELL AND SNOOP, DIRECTED BY PAUL HUNTER

GOSPEL-FLAVORED FLY LIKE A BIRD GOES TO URBAN RADIO

With three consecutive #1 airplay hits under its belt (“We Belong Together, “Shake It Off and “DonÂ’t Forget About UsÂ), performer and songwriter Mariah CareyÂ’s 6x-platinum Island Records album The Emancipation Of Mimi, the biggest-selling album of 2005, will spin off two new singles this week – Say SomethinÂ’ featuring Snoop Dogg (to Top 40/ Rhythmic radio formats) and Fly Like A Bird (to Urban) – it was announced today by Antonio “L.A. Reid, Chairman, Island Def Jam Music Group. Both songs will impact on Monday, April 3rd.

The electrifying new video for Say SomethinÂ’was shot on location in the high-fashion world of Paris last week with acclaimed director Paul Hunter, co-starring Pharrell Williams (of the Neptunes) and Snoop Dogg. The beautiful and cinematic performance piece follows Mariah, as an international movie star, around Paris in PharrellÂ’s Maserati with paparazzi following them everywhere. Dressed from head-to-toe in Louis Vuitton, they stroll down the Champs-Elysées, stop on the scenic bridge Le Pont de Paris overlooking the River Seine, and chill in PharrellÂ’s luxurious Parisian apartment. The day culminates in high style, as Pharrell makes every womanÂ’s fantasy come true by closing the newly designed Louis Vuitton store on the Champs-Elysées, setting the stage for their own private shopping spree. Fireworks fly on the streets of the City Of Lights as Mariah once again collaborates with Hunter, who directed the video for her 17th #1 career hit single, “DonÂ’t Forget About Us.Â

Fly Like A Bird was produced by Mariah and by Flyte TymeÂ’s Big Jim Wright. The Gospel-drenched song stirred the emotions of Grammy viewers worldwide last month, when Mariah performed it onstage with a full brass section and BrooklynÂ’s 30-voice Love Fellowship Tabernacle Choir, under the direction of Grammy-winning Pastor Hezekiah Walker. The accompanying video will be shot in New York in late March.
