GOSPEL-FLAVORED FLY LIKE A BIRD
GOES TO URBAN RADIO
With three consecutive #1 airplay hits under its belt (Ã‚â€œWe Belong Together,Ã‚ Ã‚â€œShake It OffÃ‚ and Ã‚â€œDonÃ‚â€™t Forget About UsÃ‚), performer and songwriter Mariah CareyÃ‚â€™s 6x-platinum Island Records album The Emancipation Of Mimi, the biggest-selling album of 2005, will spin off two new singles this week Ã‚â€“ Say SomethinÃ‚â€™
featuring Snoop Dogg (to Top 40/ Rhythmic radio formats) and Fly Like A Bird
(to Urban) Ã‚â€“ it was announced today by Antonio Ã‚â€œL.A.Ã‚ Reid, Chairman, Island Def Jam Music Group. Both songs will impact on Monday, April 3rd.
The electrifying new video for Say SomethinÃ‚â€™
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 PharrellÃ‚â€™s Maserati with paparazzi following them everywhere. Dressed from head-to-toe in Louis Vuitton, they stroll down the Champs-ElysÃƒÂ©es, stop on the scenic bridge Le Pont de Paris overlooking the River Seine, and chill in PharrellÃ‚â€™s luxurious Parisian apartment. The day culminates in high style, as Pharrell makes every womanÃ‚â€™s fantasy come true by closing the newly designed Louis Vuitton store on the Champs-ElysÃƒÂ©es, 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, Ã‚â€œDonÃ‚â€™t Forget About Us.Ã‚
Fly Like A Bird
was produced by Mariah and by Flyte TymeÃ‚â€™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 BrooklynÃ‚â€™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.
