Mariah Carey's new single, "Obsessed": Out today


Mariah-C_Obsessed_l You thought Mimi was emancipated? Au contraire, Music Mixers! She is “Obsessed.” That would be the five-octave pop superstar's lead single – written and produced by herself, Tricky Stewart and the-Dream (why the hyphen? Nobody-knows)– from her upcoming 12th album, Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel, the followup to last year's E=MC2.

It goes to radio nationally today, where it will undoubtedly be only a hop, skip and wet-t-shirt-contest jump (nice photo, Meems!) to YouTube; we'll keep you posted.

In the meantime, if you follow her Twitter, you know she's been talking about the song for days – describing it alternately as “an uptempo summer fun record,” “seriously my favorite song ever,” and “different for me, but clearly, it's SO me!” Judge for yourself when you hear it – and tell us if it is also, in fact, so you – and if you'll be buying Memoirs when it drops August 25.
