New Mariah....Old Foreigner Sep 17, 2009

Mariah Carey is finally releasing the second single from her latest album Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel. Yes, her “Obsessed” diss to Eminem has finally began to run its course. She is getting back to doing what she does best, singing classic Pop ballads in a way that only she can! For her new song she turns to something we all already know. She took a crack at covering the famous Pop song, “I Want To Know What Love Is” originally by Foreigner! This marks aproximatley the 8th time that the 1984 Pop song was covered and  the third or forth to also be released as a single to appear on the charts. (sorry because of how many times it was covered that stat is very difficultt to keep track of)
