Me. I Am Mariah…The Elusive Chanteuse (Deluxe) by Mariah Carey



Mariah Carey

Play on Napster
Label: Def Jam Recordings
For a woman often dazzled by her childhood dreams, this is an unusually mature work. She celebrates her family on "Supernatural," and "the summer of '88" on "Dedicated." There's a '90s R&B throwback thing going on, but unlike the SoundCloud kids aping Aaliyah, Mariah was actually a part of that era. Still, there are problems here, like Wale chatting obliviously over "You Don't Know What to Do." And how great would "Meteorite" be if it had a decent hook? The best song is "#Beautiful," and we're still wondering why she waited a year after it blew up before unveiling The Elusive Chanteuse.
