Carey released two songs this week off the set: a duet of “Angel Cry” with Ne-Yo and “Up Out of My Face” featuring Nicki Minaj. Videos for both songs, directed by Carey and husband, Nick Cannon, hit the web Thursday.
Carey now goes up against Usher, who is set to release his new Jive Records album, “Raymond Vs. Raymond,” on the same date. “Angels Advocate” is her 13th studio album and will feature new remixes and duets of songs from her 2009 under-achiever, “Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel.”
Carey is currently on her “Angels Advocate” tour, which is set to wrap up on February 27 at the Pearl Concert Theater in Las Vegas.
