Mariah Carey is said to be shifting gears and plugging a follow up to “Obsessed” titled “100%”. Produced by long time friends Jermaine Dupri and Bryan Michael Cox, “100%” made its debut on New York’s Hot 97 (radio) thanks to DJ Envy Monday. Confirming the new single on his Twitter, Jermaine Dupri told followers “make sure yall hit hot 97 and request that new mariah” after stating “envy is playing the new mariah record me and b cox did on hot 97 right now”. While the reasoning behind the single’s quit roll out, just days after music videos for “Obsessed” arrived at BET and MTV, has not been given, it has been speculated that the reception of “Obsessed”was simply lukewarm. At press time “Obsessed” sat at no.20 on the Billboard Hot 100, down from its no.11 position last week. “100%” is slated to make its way to radio stations between now and Monday, hopefully edging out “Obsessed”. As previously reported on Singersroom, Mariah Carey’s twelfth studio album “Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel” has been pushed back. Originally due for release August 25, the anticipated album is now up for release September 15.
