Mariah Carey & YG Reportedly Working On A Breakup Song Together

This post was originally published on this site

(AllHipHop News) The embarrassing New Year Eve’s performance debacle does not seem to be stopping Mariah Carey from moving forward with her music career.

The vocal icon has been seen recently with Los Angeles rapper YG, and TMZ reports the two artists are working on a tune together.

According to the celebrity news website, Carey and YG have recorded a breakup song and shot a video for the track.

Carey went through a public split with her ex-fiance James Packer last year.

The songstress and the emcee were hounded by paparazzi outside the Catch restaurant on Sunday night.

“I don’t know what we’re doing,” YG told the paps when asked if he and Mariah are collaborating.

It would be no surprise if MC and YG have connected for a record.

Carey’s discography includes songs with Hip Hop stars like Ol’ Dirty Bastard, Jay Z, Busta Rhymes, Jermaine Dupri, Snoop Dogg, Cam’ron, Jadakiss, Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross, Meek Mill, and others.

The assumed Mariah/YG song could premiere during the season finale of the Mariah’s World docu-series.

Mariah’s World airs Sunday on E! at 9 ET.

Nick Cannon To Ellen: Mariah Carey’s NYE Performance Debacle Was A Government Conspiracy (VIDEO)

This post was originally published on this site

(AllHipHop News) It has been over two weeks since Mariah Carey’s embarrassing lip-synced New Year’s Eve performance in New York City.

The legendary singer was slammed by various critics and media outlets when she stopped performing in the middle of her set on live television.

However, Carey’s ex-husband Nick Cannon came to her defense during a sit down with Ellen DeGeneres.

“You know me. I’m a conspiracy theorist. I think the government did that,” Cannon told the daytime talk show host. “They set her up. That was a distraction.”

He continued, “Anyone who knows about performing and having inner-ears, things like that can go wrong on live television. I screw up on America’s Got Talent all the time. So when there’s people in your ear saying things and stuff, I think she got a little flustered.”

Cannon was likely joking about the government conspiracy angle to Carey’s poor showing on NYE.

However, the television personality has been steadfast about his controversial beliefs on the Planned Parenthood Federation of America.

Cannon referred to the actions of the reproductive health services organization as “genocide.”

“Same issue I have with Planned Parenthood I have with corps like McDonalds, Hennessy, Privatised [sic] Prisons, public education etc. #Eugenics,” Cannon tweeted in November.

The “Gigolo” rapper has also expressed his concerns about racism in Hollywood and police-community relations.
