Mariah Carey Hinted That She Is Open To Collaborating With Lil Nas X

Lil Nas X has made headlines a lot lately. First, he had a song that blew up the country charts called “Old Town Road” with Billy Ray Cyrus. The song showed that the rapper was able to cross over into any genre and make it a success. He then made headlines again when he came out of the closet at the end of Pride month and the world celebrated. Now, Lil Nas X is setting Twitter on fire by suggesting that he and Mariah Carey should do a duet and, well, why not?

Lil Nas X wants to team up with Mariah Carey for a remix and, well, yes, please.

Lil Nas X is one of the most talked about musicians right now. Everyone has heard “Old Town Road” and the crossover hit is something we are still bopping to. Somehow, the rapper turned country star made Billy Ray Cyrus relevant again for more than being Miley Cyrus’s dad and that is something to admire.

Now he is asking Mariah Carey to join him for a remix and that just seems perfect. The singer is arguably one of the most talented famous musicians on the planet and her fandom is super dedicated. A hit with Carey is basically a way to immortalize yourself in pop culture.

Carey responded with a title mashing up one of her songs with Lil Nas X’s country hit.

Ummm…who doesn’t want this collab to happen? “One Sweet Day” and “Old Town Road” are two separate hits that we all love. Could you imagine them coming together and spreading their love all over the world?

Billboard shared a list of the longest running top songs and both artists are on the list.

the power between them to make a certified hit would definitely change the course of music history. If Mariah Carey could hold the top spot with 16 weeks and Lil Nas X can come in with 14 weeks, would a collab be the best hit ever? It might be. Who knows? Maybe Carey and Lil Nas X can team up and show us what they are made of.

Fans are already through around possible titles for the remix.

LOL. “Whistle Notes Edition” just sounds like a hit. We all know the iconic whistle notes that Carey has sent out in the universe and adding them to bop like “Old Town Road” just makes sense.

People are already stanning a remix that hasn’t even happened.

Basically, you can get that feeling by listening to the tow artist in the same playlist. We have seen crazier collabs that made so little sense, like Justin Bieber on “Despacito.” Who will ever forget him saying “burrito burrito” during a performance at a bar because he didn’t know the words and somehow that was his best bet?

Btw, Carey is ready to tap back into her country roots.

She already showed us that she has what it takes when the sang “Almost Home” for the “Oz the Great and the Powerful.” The Venezuelan singer clearly understands what it means to do the country thing and we should all be excited of her doing it again.

Lil Nas X fans can’t wait for a remix with Carey.

Her star power would definitely fit well with the rapper. He has built a name for himself and having her attached to one of his projects will only make him bigger and better. Stars supporting stars. That’s what this is all about.

People are begging Carey to make this happen.

Credit: @WilliamRBR / Twitter

We all know that the person who would have to make it happen is her. He is on board and so are his fans. We need just need her people to approve this project and get the ball rolling.

And, despite all of the excitement, it has made some people so excited that they’re confused.

We don’t know what is going on, but we ship it and approve it. Please make this happen, you two.

Here’s How You Can Turn Your Christmas Into A Way To Celebrate Mariah Carey And Her Christmas Magic

mariahcarey / Instagram

The holidays can be a painful time of year for many people, whether that be because your family is loco, or across borders, or because you’re simply a recovering Catholic. One truth about Christmas that everyone can celebrate without spiritual or family trauma is the universally beloved Queen of Christmas: Mariah Carey. When producers asked Mariah Carey to create her first holiday album, she doubted the had the star power to make any kind of impact on Christmas music. Since the 1994 “Merry Christmas” album release, it’s gone Platinum five times and has sold over 5 million copies in the United States alone. It is arguably the single most impactful holiday album to become immortalized in American Christmas Classics. Just days ago, news broke that her holiday hit, “All I Want For Christmas is You,” would become the subject of a documentary film, 25 years later. That’s the power of Carey-mas. 

So, if your doubts about the upcoming holidays have you down, or you already know that Carey-mas is your access point to holiday cheer, we’ve got you covered. Behold, our vision for the perfect feast day to celebrate the Queen of Christmas.

What’s a Carey-mas without her angelic sound waves reverberating around the room?

The Ground Zero of Carey-Mas lies in her cherubic, powerful voice that has carried from 1994 into present-day with her first holiday album, “Merry Christmas.” If you’ve never heard Carey’s voice on vinyl, Urban Outfitters is selling the Limited LP that will get you as close to a live performance of Mariah Carey in your living room as possible. This is a vinyl that you can pass down to your children, and their children, and her voice will carry just as easily into the next 25 years.

Give yourself an outlet to release your newfound holiday cheer with a karaoke machine.

Is it really Christmas without some Carey-oke? I said it. Of course, nothing will ever come close to Carey’s unheard of range, but Carey-mas is all about celebrating the spirit of Mariah Carey Christmas. Fact: it’s as physically impossible to put on mascara without opening your mouth as it is to listen to Mariah Carey Christmas music without full-out belting the songs. Spread the Carey cheer with Carey-oke.

Mariah Carey, and you, need mistletoe to wait under.

So be sure to place that mistletoe right above where that karaoke machine will be so that way when they belt, “I won’t ask for much this Christmas, I won’t even wish for snow, and I just wanna keep on waiting underneath the mistletoe,” their Carey-mas cheer will double. Oh, and don’t hang stockings above the fireplace. Mariah Carey couldn’t bother because all she wanted for Christmas was you, and you can’t fit in a stocking. It’s all in the details, mi gente.

Get one step closer to becoming Mariah Carey with this look-a-like costume.

It’s a universally known fact that Mariah Carey invented Christmas, but a lesser-known fact is that Carey brought us the comforts of jumpsuits on the cover of her “Merry Christmas” album. Yandy may not know that it’s revived the ’90s Santa Claus jumpsuit Mariah Carey gave us, but, now, you do. 

Whether you’re sending out Carey-mas party invites or your holiday cards, these will do the trick.

Some use Christmas as the season to spread their “good news” about their Christ and Savior. This greeting card takes the time to simply put, “Mariah Carey Invented Christmas.” 

Mariah Carey loves to give gifts on Christmas, so make sure yours are wrapped with her generous face all over them.

In 2015, Mariah Carey told Buzzfeed News that her “favorite Christmas gift is to have a relaxed Christmas and to give gifts. I love giving gifts. It’s almost like I don’t open my gifts until, like, three days after Christmas, ’cause I want to give everyone else their presents. Especially now having my own little babies, it’s all about them.”

P.S. It’s not a Carey-mas without inviting all your friends’ dogs over. Mariah Carey loves her doggos, and the best gift bag is one for the pooches. Merry Carey-mas to all creatures and to all a festive night!

Johanna Ortiz Is The First Latin American Designer Ever To Collaborate With Major High Street Brand H&M

No affordable clothing company brings high fashion designers to the masses quite like H&M does. The retail company has become known for its designer partnerships as much as it has for it’s cheap prices. Following hot on the heels of Giambattista Valli’s tulle-laden collab, the Swedish retail company H&M has unveiled it’s latest partner in crime, the Colombian, Johanna Ortiz. 

H&M’s first-ever collab collection with a Latina designer is coming early next year, and we’re excited.

www.hm.com

H&M’s partnership with Johanna Ortiz has us jumping with excitement. The collab would mark the very first collaboration between the retail giant and a Latina designer. Since 2004, H&M has released one —or sometimes two— designer collaborations a year. Karl Lagerfeld was the first, and ever since, the fast-fashion giant has released affordable collections designed by the likes of Kenzo, Balmain, Alber Elbaz, and many more.

The majority of these collections sell out in hours, with people lining up outside the store, hours before doors open. The limited-edition pieces hit the secondary market for two or three times the price of the originals.

Featuring a flamboyant color palette, exotic floral prints and glamorous silhouettes that have become synonymous with Ortiz’s brand of feminine, maximalist dressing, the collection is replete with elegant day-to-night options for those seeking to make a statement.

Ortiz’s signature ruffles, floral prints, and off-the-shoulder styles have captivated consumers everywhere.

The Colombia native’s signature ruffles and off-the-shoulder silhouettes perfectly capture the spirit of the Latin American Caribbean and have resonated with industry insiders and consumers alike. Ortiz makes use of vibrant colors and feminine silhouettes that have proved commercially successful, earning her worldwide stockists and a loyal clientele base.

The Cali-native designer has garnered global fame with her feminine label.

The designer has become something of a fashion ambassador for Colombia and has been invited to show her collections at the White House in Washington and the United Nations in New York. She is currently expanding into new categories, having made a bridalwear debut with an exclusive collection for e-tailer Moda Operandi.

There will be an exclusive ‘pre-drop’ this month, before the full collection launches.

The full collection will be dropping in March of 2020, with an exclusive pre-drop of four dresses available this week. All four frocks are an iteration of Ortiz’s flirtatious, floral, over the top, yet effortless aesthetic: one tunic dress, a wrap dress, the mini dress, and a tiered floor-length style dress. 

Ortiz is proud of her heritage, which has a strong influence on her creative aesthetic.

“The prints all come from my obsession with the flowers, the palm trees and the beautiful colors I am blessed to see out the window when I wake up at home in Cali, in my native Colombia,” explained the Colombian designer in an interview with The Evenging Standard. 

Johanna drew inspiration from her own archive.

The tropical and floral prints extracted from Johanna’s archive are called, Wild Roses, Orchid Paradise, Cacatua, and Coquelicots, and live on warm yellow, dusty pink, forest green, and coral-infused dark brown canvases. “The imprint of Latin America and its uniquely festive atmosphere is something that can be felt in each Johanna Ortiz design, so I’m thrilled that so many women in the world will have a little piece of Colombia in their wardrobes thanks to the Johanna Ortiz x H&M collaboration,” said the designer. 

In an effort to give back to the community, her label places a high priority on working with indigenous communities and women in Colombia.

Ortiz founded her namesake label in 2001 and counts Beyoncé, Sienna Miller and Kate Hudson among her legion of fans.

In an interview with H&M’s online magazine, Johanna shared what she’s most looking forward to about with this collab: “I’m most excited about the fact that I’m taking a bit of my design and a bit of Colombia and reaching a new audience of women. I think that’s really satisfying.”

An exclusive Johanna Ortiz x H&M “pre-drop” of four dress styles will be released in selected stores and at hm.com on December 3; the main collection will be available in March 2020.
