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 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.

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.

Mariah Carey Admits Her Divorce From Nick Cannon Got Messy Because Of Egos And Emotions

Updated September 29, 2020.

Mariah Carey’s personal life has always been about as elusive as the chanteuse’s voice itself. Throughout her decades-long career, fans of the singer have wondered about the men who fall at her feet. From her two marriages to different engagements, even a mysterious potential romantic tête-à-tête with Eminem, Carey has had a life filled with all kinds of loves and relationships but for the most part, kept her lips sealed about them.

Now, the singer is opening up about them in her new book.

In her new book, The Meaning of Mariah Carey, the singer shared how her marriage with Cannon fell apart.

In her new book, Carey recalls how she never planned on being a mother before she finally met Cannon and his ″perpetual teen spirit.” At the time the “We Belong Together” singer says that she was not in any way experiencing baby fever but her feelings changed soon after the two artists got together. ″Our desire to have children became a force of nature and why we got married so quickly,” Carey wrote in her book.

Carey and Cannon got together while shooting her music video for her song “Bye Bye” and married two months later in The Bahamas. Just a few years after, Carey gave birth to their fraternal twins, Moroccan and Monroe, on April 30, 2011. In 2014, the couple announced that they had called it quits and finalized their divorce in 2016.

Carey described meeting Cannon during the Teen Choice Awards when he presented her with a surfboard award.

In her book, she recalled that she had heard the comedian had ″all these nice things″ to say about her. Soon after he told her ″With a genuine beaming smile and a flame in his eyes… ‘If you give me a chance, I’ll prove all of it is true,’″ Carey wrote describing it as ″A cute moment—very.”

Carey explained that unlike her first marriage with Tommy Mottola, she and Cannon shared a power dynamic that “felt even″ and shared that Cannon made her feel “safe.”

″He was a good guy. He was faith-based. He was ambitious,″ she wrote. ″He had been in the entertainment industry for a long time, so he understood the madness. He paid attention to me.”

Ultimately Carey says that the divorce took two years to finalize because ″honestly, I think Nick and I could have worked it out between the two of us, but egos and emotions got inflamed (which can translate into many billable lawyer hours, and ultimately it did)… It was tough. We both wanted to make sure everything was cool for our family. We will always be family, and we make it work.″

Fortunately, according to Carey’s book, the two remain amicable these days and manage to co-parent their children with love.

Earlier this month, in an exclusive clip from The Oprah Conversation, Carey revealed that a relationship with New York Yankee Derek Jeter in the late ’90s led her to leave her ex Tommy Mottola.

Speaking about Jeter, Carey described him as a “catalyst” in her decision to leave Mottola after being married to him for five years.

“Before you divorced Tommy Mottola, you met Yankee baseball player Derek Jeter, and you say he served a very high purpose in your life,” Oprah observes in her interview with Carey which calls on her upcoming memoir The Meaning of Mariah Carey. “This was one of those situations of the right person at the right place and the right time. What was it about Derek? He got his own song too, right?”

Responding to Oprah’s question, Carey admits “He got his own song. He got a few songs. He was a catalyst that helped me get out of that relationship because I believed that there was somebody else,” she explained “It was the racial situation, his mom is Irish, his dad is Black. But he was also very ambiguous looking to me. I didn’t know who he was, we met and I’ve written songs about it.”

“And honestly, I don’t think it was like, ‘Oh my gosh, he was the love of my life,'” Carey went onto admit. “Like, at the time I did, because I didn’t think I would ever meet anybody who wouldn’t- What’s the word? I used the word, I just thought about this last night. Not looked down on but feel superior to me because of the fact that I’m not one way or another in most people’s minds, and they have preconceived notions, whatever… But he was a catalyst. And I think that it was beautiful.”

Carey revealed that Jeter’s biracial family changed how she felt about her own.

“And they changed my viewpoint that ‘Oh, it’s because of the biracial situation that my family is so screwed up,’ as opposed to ‘it’s them.’ And yes, those things did play a huge part in their dysfunction. But it was healthy for me to see a functional family that basically kind of looked like mine, but didn’t feel like mine,” she admitted. “And he was also living his dream job and doing his dream job. I believe we connected in that way.”

Last month, Carey told Vulture in an interview that she wore a “buttery leather Chanel skirt” the first time she kissed Jeter.

“I can never forget that moment,” she explained. “I mean, it’s not like it was some intensely deep, intellectually stimulating — again, it was a great moment, and it happened in a divine way because it helped me get past living there, in Sing Sing, under those rules and regulations.”

Carey’s new book, which comes out at the end of this month, follows her “her meteoric rise to music superstardom” and the struggles she faced as a result.

“It took me a lifetime to have the courage and clarity to write my memoir. I want to tell the story of the moments,” Carey shared in a July post on Instagram. “The ups and downs, the triumphs and traumas, the debacles and the dreams that contributed to the person I am today.”

The Meaning of Mariah Carey will debut on shelves on Sept. 29.
