Did Mariah Carey Get It Nostalgically Right With ‘Me. I Am Mariah… The Elusive Chanteuse’?

Mariah Carey hasn’t been quite that reclusive or that elusive, which the title of her new album, Me. I Am Mariah…The Elusive Chanteuse suggests. But, apparently, the social media seems to have appreciated her efforts that apparently stretched for 5 years.

Ms. Carey isn’t exactly what one might call “elusive,” reports Courier Journal. She’s arguably in every tabloid; she recently did a rather flamboyant season of American Idol and has tweeted more than 5,000 times within the last couple of days. Hence it is safe to conclude that Mariah is clearly among the least elusive people alive.

But aside from the title, the songs appear to have touched her fans in all the right places and stirred up all the right kind of emotions. The latest album appears to have correctly judged what Mariah’s audience expects from the singer and offered exactly the same.

Apart from giving off a very strong 1990’s vibe, the album even has Rodney Jerkins and Jermaine Dupri as producers, reported Fuse.Tv. Me. I Am Mariah…The Elusive Chanteuse proves that sometimes you can go back in time and temporarily erase all the not-so-great efforts that lay between Mariah’s heydays in the 1990s and now.

Mariah Carey’s elemental problem has always been herself. She enthralled the world with her debut album because she came out of nowhere and delivered an angelic voice that was absolutely stunning and had the ability to instill a strong sense of euphoria. But somewhere in the late 1990s she somehow went astray. She was dropped by her label after the failure of Glitter and its accompanying album. But nothing could have honestly damaged her otherwise stellar career more than her ego having ballooned out of control.

With Me. I Am Mariah, Carey has evidently managed to strip away all the effects of ego and deliver a focused and cohesive musical effort. With a sensual voice that sounds beautifully pensive too, Mariah’s latest album is a great trip down memory lane that dates back to the 1990s when she was clearly singing to entertain the world and nothing else.

Mariah Carey still has one of the greatest singing voices of all-time. The pop superstar’s incredible five-octave vocal range is certainly the stuff of legend. Couple that with her cute looks; made Mariah Carey a household name. With Me. I Am Mariah, the singer has certainly captivated the audience once more with powerful and mature lyrics.
