Mariah Carey revealed today that her Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel remix album Angels Advocate will hit stores March 30th, just six months after Memoirs was released. To announce the news, Carey unveiled a pair of videos from the remix disc that show off two of her distinctly different sides. Up top is Mariah's "Up Out My Face" collabo with Nikki Minaj, while the "Angels Cry" remix by Ne-Yo is below. Carey's husband Nick Cannon directed both clips.
"Up Out My Face" captures Carey's more playful side as she and Minaj dress up like Halloween nurses and pinup dolls. The video has a very distinct White Stripes-in-a-Target-commercial motif going. Maybe it's Carey was comfortable with Cannon behind the camera, but the "Up Out My Face" clip seems to be the first time Mariah is genuinely enjoying being in a music video since the "Heartbreaker" era, when she was getting into catfights with herself.
The "Angels Cry" remix clip shows Mariah's more seductive side, as she sings in a dark alley in the middle of a thunderstorm wearing only a white tank top. The video also seems to recreate what the recording session between Ne-Yo and Carey must have been like, as Cannon's cameras reveal that the recording studio is actually built within a film studio. And there's no shortage of product placement for her fragrance and shoes.
