Mariah Carey Spreads her Wings and Collaborates

Published: 2007-02-23
Mariah Carey is getting ready to start the rigorous process of recording her next CD. Being a performer who loves collaborations, we can expect to hear from a range of performers on the new album. And if her collaborations as of late are any indication then we should hold on for some interesting stints.

This April, expect to hear a new track that features Mariah Carey and Bone Thugs-n-Harmony for the group's new disc Strength and Loyalty. Collaborating with Bone Thugs-n-Harmony wasn't "sweet" enough for the track so Mariah brought along Bow Wow to add a little something extra.

Carey was honored to work with the boys saying, "A lot of times people are like, I will make up a part and people actually think they made up that part. But I am so influenced by their style that it kind of merges together. It's funny, because so many artists today are influenced by Bone, and they may not even realize it."

Another upcoming collaboration has a different feel to it. Mariah is working on a film titled Tennessee, in which she plays an aspiring songwriter who goes on a journey to find two brothers' lost father. Throughout the movie Carey's character is working on writing a song that she will perform in a bar. This song was co-wrote by Mariah and long time country veteran Willie Nelson.

No release date is known for the movie as of yet but Mariah's new album is due out this fall.
