Mariah Carey ft. Nicki Minaj - Up Out My Face (Remix)

Posted 6 years ago
Featuring:
Producer:
The-Dream & Tricky Stewart
Album:
Angels Advocate

Is any current artist more controversial among Booth readers than Nicki Minaj? To answer my own rhetorical question, no. Your feelings on the Young Money femcee will likely be the deciding factor in how you rate this remix of Mariah Carey‘s Up Out My Face, a Dream & Tricky Stewart-produced head-nodder off ‘09’s Memoirs of a Perfect Angel. This version of the cut sees Minaj bookending Carey’s silky-smooth kiss-offs with typically off-the-wall opening and closing bars, tipping the headliner off about her man’s infidelity: “...I was in the million-dollar meetings, he was cheatin’/ All up in the church, sneakin’ with the deacon.” Personally, I find the goofy accent and free-associated lyrics entertaining as hell, but our own Nathan S. disagreed over on RefinedHype, claiming that Minaj ruined the record. I’ll let you, the readers, have the final call. In any case, Mariah fans can hear more revamped versions of MoaIA tracks (and a few new cuts) on remix album Angels Advocate, due out Feb. 23.
