Mariah's "Memoirs" Pushed Back
Fans will have to wait to get their hands on Mariah Carey’s Memoirs.
The pop diva’s 12th studio album, Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel, has been pushed back three weeks to September 15. It had previously been scheduled for an August 25 release. There are reports that the album was not completed in time to make the original release date.
As recently as Tuesday morning, the artist tweeted that she was still in the studio finishing the project (and getting approvals from all the 80's artists whose music she's going to jack). A video for the “Obsessed (Remix)” featuring Gucci Mane will premiere Thursday. Amazon has also changed the release date to 9/15.
The album will miss the August 31 cutoff for the 2010 Grammy Awards nominations and will now go head-to-head on the charts with Jay-Z’s Blueprint 3 (Sept. 11).
