Although she’s in Aspen, Colorado celebrating the holidays with her husband Nick Cannon, Mariah Carey made sure she got her work done before she left.
Before her winter getaway, the singer recorded a bunch of new music for her upcoming remix re-release of Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel, and filmed two new music videos.
Most recently, Carey filmed a video for “Up Out My Face,” featuring Young Money first lady Nicki Minaj, where both musicians portray dolls.
Nick Cannon leaked stills from the video on his official website (NickCannon.com), where the two women appear in doll boxes, and in another shot toasting cocktails.
The other video is for the Ne-Yo-assisted track called “Angels Cry.” The stills for this clip show Carey and Ne-Yo in the studio recording the track, and in another still she walking through the rain during her solo.
Cannon says “Angels Cry” is “simplistically genius. No bells and whistles, just documenting history and brilliance.”
Carey’s hubby reportedly directed both clips. At press time, it was unclear when they would premiere.
The remix album is set to hit stores on February 2010.
The initial Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel dropped in September, and sold a disappointing 344,000 copies. It’s in stores now. To get your copy, head over to Amazon.com.
In addition to dropping the new album next year, Cary is set to hit the road on December 31st for an eight-week, 19-city “Angels Advocate” tour, set to wrap on February 27 at The Pearl Concert Theater in Las Vegas.
Tickets for the majority of the shows will go on sale on Saturday (December 26).
