Much to the delight of Harmonizers, Fifth Harmony’s debut album Reflection is streaming online a week ahead of its February 3 release. When the official tracklist was unveiled, the song I was most looking forward to checking out was “Like Mariah.” Clearly the track would be an homage to the elusive chanteuse, but exactly how.

The track interpolates one of Carey’s biggest hits, “Always Be My Baby.” Great choice. Their tribute perfectly captures Mimi during her 90s hey day. Much like Carey often does, Fifth Harmony enlists a rapper to add a little urban edge. Tyga in this instance.

This isn’t the first time the girl group has been linked to Carey. They covered “All I Want For Christmas Is You” this past holiday season. Give “Like Mariah” a listen below and be sure to weigh in afterward.

Mariah Carey Officially Announces Las Vegas Residency

Move over Britney, there’s a new diva heading to Las Vegas. After weeks of speculation, Mariah Carey confirmed the news on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing on Thursday.

“I ‘m going to do my first ever residency in Vegas at Caesars. This is a special event for me,” Mariah said. “And again, I have to hope that the fans will enjoy this cause I’m gonna be performing, which was kind of inspired by my album Number 1’s, and this is now the updated version with 18 of them.”

The 44-year-old elusive chanteuse will call Caesar’s Palace her home. She’ll hold down the fort while Celine Dion takes an extended hiatus to take care of family health issues. Once tickets go on sale, I’ll definitely be looking into booking a trip to Sin City.

No word on what Caesars shelled out, but it’s safe to assume it’ll top Spears. I’ll definitely share it when I learn her salary. Watch Mimi’s huge announcement below.

Ever since its release in 1994, “All I Want For Christmas Is You” has been covered by numerous artists come the holiday season. Fifth Harmony is the latest to take on the Mariah Carey classic. Their version doesn’t exactly reinvent the wheel but it’s a fun little festive romp.

5H’s cover is off Epic Records’ I’ll Be Home For Christmas EP. Among the other offerings are Tamar Braxton (“Sleigh Ride”), Fiona Apple (“Frosty The Snowman”), Sara Bareilles & Ingrid Michaelson (“Winter Song”) and Meghan Trainor (“I’ll Be Home”).

What Normani, Lauren, Dinah, Camilla and Ally show their Yuletide spirit in the newly-released music video. The EP is currently in stores now.

Holy lookalike Batman. While the stand-ins for Beyonce, NeNe Leakes, Solange Knowles, Nicki Minaj and Rihanna are a little busted up, the Mariah Carey impersonator is on point. Honestly at times, I thought I was looking at the real Mimi. I guarantee you will to. An impeccable job in casting indeed.

Todrick Hall previously filmed a Chicago parody featuring famed Disney characters performing “Cell Block Tango.” He once again looks to the musical for inspiration. But this time with a little Orange Is The New Black spice with Leakes as the HWIC (head warden in charge).

Watch the ladies explain what they exactly did to get them locked up. Here’s a little hint with Mariah’s crime. It has something to do with Ariana Grande’s ponytail. The Carey bit is the best, along with the Beyonce and Solange parts. Hall has another viral hit on his hands. Definitely check out “Cell Black Django” below.

Every gay man has their favorite diva. Over in Turkey, it’s Mariah Carey. The 44-year-old singer will be the cover model for the first issue of a new free magazine for Turkey’s LGBTI community. GayMag wants to, “want to break all of the taboos, but step by step” according to Editor-in-Chief Emir Akgün.

Even though homosexuality has been legal in the country since 1858, it is widely frowned upon and there is no legal recognition of same-sex relationships. GayMag will be free for its first twelve months of circulation due to a sponsorship from a dating app.

‘It’s like everybody was waiting for it for a long time. It is completely normal that there are people against it, though there will certainly be people who like it. We are not reinventing the wheel, the publication of GayMag is itself a big step to break taboos in the first place.’

Reportedly, Carey was enthusiastic about becoming the first cover girl. With disappointing sales for her latest album, I’m sure she was happy about the free publicity. Speaking of Me. I Am Mariah… The Elusive Chanteuse, the photo used for GayMag’s premier issue is just a rehash of one of the many publicity shots for the album. Check it out below.

Mariah Carey Stumbles Out The Gate With Latest Album

In: Donovan, Music

The only thing elusive about Mariah’s latest album are the sales. Me I Am Mariah… The Elusive Diva managed to only move 56,000 copies during its opening week. That number was only good enough for No. 3 on the Billboard 200. I guess her lame PR stunt riding the subway didn’t translate into the sales she had hoped for.

Her previous album, 2009′s Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel, also began life at number three, but sold three times as many copies to get there. This is her worst opening ever since 1991′s Emotions when it launched at No. 4 with 156,000.

Chanteuse was released nearly five years after her last non-holiday studio album, Memoirs of An Imperfect Angel. It’s her longest gap between studio projects. Why do you think her latest bombed? Did you buy her 14th studio album? Have her lambs abandoned her? Sound off below.

Mariah Carey Is Thirsty On New Track

Mariah Carey caused a ruckus when she revealed the title of her new album, Me. I Am Mariah… The Elusive Chanteuse earlier this month. It spawned numerous online album generators, giving you a Mariah-fied title. Mine was Me. I Am Donovan… The Reluctant Diva :)

Mimi’s 14th studio album drops in just a couple of weeks on May 27. The first official track, “You’re Mine (Eternal)” didn’t make a huge splash on the charts unlike “Beautiful.” Carey returns to familiar ground by hooking up with a hip-hop artist to give some urban flavor. At first, it sounds like Ludacris, but it’s actually Atlanta rapper Rich Homie Quan (never heard of him). Check out “Thirsty” produced by Hit Boy below.

Mariah Carey certainly practices what she preaches. Her forthcoming album was originally titled The Art Of Letting Go and it appears she’s in fact, let it go and opted for a ridiculously long alternative. The 44-year-old singer reveals it’s inspired by her first and only self-portrait drawn by her as a child which is featured on the album’s back cover.

Me. I Am Mariah… The Elusive Chanteuse hits stores May 27. It’ll include previously released singles “You’re Mine (Eternal)” and last year’s Top 20 hit, the equally annoyingly titled “#Beautiful” among the bunch. Her latest effort will also feature high-profile collaborations from Nas, Mary J. Blige and R. Kelly. Check out her video announcement below.
