G3. What is Mariah Carey's most recent work?

The most recent developments for Mariah have occurred on two fronts:

1. Details about the release of the upcoming movie All That Glitters (read
on) have become public- Mariah has coproduced the soundtrack and stars in the
film.

2. Mariah has left Sony for EMI, and has a $US20 million per album deal with
the Virgin label. This has been rumoured ever since Mariah split with Sony
CEO Tommy Mottola. Various sources cite Mariah being unhappy with promotion
(or lack thereof) at Sony, but the truth is certainly more complicated.

Mariah's most recent studio album is entitled Rainbow. This album is packed
with collaborations with urban and R&B artists, but has a few ballads to
pacify older fans. The work is testimony to Mariah's astounding ability to
adjust herself to the popular styles of the day.

The singles released from the Rainbow album appear to be different in each
part of the world. Heartbreaker, the one which has a worldwide release, had a
record debut week, with sales tying a Beatles record of 271 000 copies sold
in the US. Thank God I Found You was then released to some markets (including
the US), followed by Against All Odds and Can't Take That Away (Mariah's
Theme) (paired with Crybaby in the US), though the order of release depends
on the market.

Mariah appeared in the movie The Bachelor, a film starring Chris O'Donnell
which had wordlwide release around the beginning of 2000. Mariah's next movie
role will be much bigger, as she will appear in the star vehicle All That
Glitters, believed to be ready for an Autumn 2001 release. See question S2.

Mariah's most recent worldwide video album (available on VHS and DVD
worldwide) is Number Ones, containing video clips featuring Mariah's number
one singles.
