Mariah Carey – E=MC2: Album Review
Written by Administrator   

R&B Soul reviews The record-breaking singer Mariah Carey gives us the solution to success with her 11th studio album E=MC2 continuing her hit-making trail.

Initially, E=MC2  goes straight to the club. The Danja-produced “Migrate” shows Mariah  attempting to reach the young crowd, but guest T-Pain steals the show. It would’ve sounded better as his own song.

After the lead single, Damian Marley chimes in on the smooth “Cruise Control” and Young Jeezy throws around his ad-libs on the synth-driven “Side Effects” produced by Scott Storch. All three are sub-par shots aimed directly at today’s ringtone era.

    But vintage MC returns full force, as the ballads she’s well-known for take form. Long-time partner Jermaine Dupri deliver “Last Kiss,” “Long Story,” and “Thanks 4 Nothin,” all slow and sensual with the latter being a guitar-laced trip into heartbreak. Producer Bryan-Michael Cox crafts two of the albums better tracks, the familiar sounding “I Stay In Love,” and “For The Record.” The standout track “I’m That Chick” could very well be her next single, depending on the direction she wants to take. Upbeat and groovy, Mariah taps into female confidence with a Janet Jackson-esque flavor.  

The formula that has helped Mariah surpass Elvis with the most No.1 hits hasn’t faded. After beginning by venturing into Hip-hop’s model of a club banger, Mariah sticks to the formula that made her what she is today. Coming in at fourteen songs with two bonus tracks, Mariah testifies to the famous saying, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”
