Mariah Carey: 'Angels Advocate' remix album cancelled

Mariah-CareyImage Credit: Bill Davila/startraksphoto.comMariah Carey’s label tells the Music Mix that the rumors are true: Angels Advocate, the remix set that the diva was planning to drop next Tuesday, will no longer be released as an album. Multiple singles (“Up Out My Face” featuring Nicki Minaj, “Angels Cry” featuring Ne-Yo) have already surfaced from the project, which was to have paired Carey with new collaborators on reworked tunes from last fall’s Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel. Now Island Def Jam’s plan is to continue putting out that new material as stand-alone singles instead of packaging it together into a full-length CD as originally intended. “We’ve released a few of Mariah’s hot remixes from Memoirs on iTunes and Mariah’s back in the studio working on some new surprises,” says a label rep. Angels Advocate was previously delayed to this month from a late February release date.
