This past week 50 Cent and Kanye West released their albums on the same date - creating a Battle Of The Titans. Now MediaTakeOut.com has learned that there's another musical battle on the horizon. You see it turns out that both Mariah Carey and Mary J Blige will be releasing their albums on the same date - November 20th.
Mariah's new album is still unnamed and Mary's is called Growing Pains.
What makes the battle even more interesting is that both women's last albums were extremely successful. Mariah's The Emancipation Of Mimi was the top selling album of 2005. And Mary J Blige's The Breakthrough was her most successful album to date.
Who do you guys think is gonna win, Mary or Mariah?
MJB is dope but MIMI is the "BILLBOARD ***" ***!!! MY Money's on MIMI BABY!!! I ridin with Mariah becuz she is at a point now where she has more to accomplish than Mary, Mariah's trying catch the beatles record for most No.1 Hits! Go Mariah!!!
now this right here is a hard one because they are both legends in da game....
I'm voting for MC. I hope I look like that when I'm in my 40's!
i love em both but i always seem to buy Mariah's CD so no doubt i will be out buying this one as well. Mary i love and her last CD was da bomb in fact all of her CD's have been da bomb. but like with Beyonce supposedly slinging dirt at Ashanti these two women like them have different styles of music from each other but it will be interesting
Love to read about drama and the glamorous life? well then order my book "Blind Temptations" the seduction of ***, Lies & Betryal today! Be one of the first to recieve a copy of Chocolate Flava 2 with Zane featuring me! go to www.lesleyhal.com
Lovely, are you insane???! I went to see Mariah in concert last year, she hit every single note and made me get goosebumps. Her voice is amazing!!
I really didnt care for either one of their last cds
both of them only had about 3 songs that I liked on the whole cd
I think that mary will come out on top
I got to give it to Mary J. even though Mariah I'm sure will do well too. Mariah's last album wasn't as great as her previous ones, but I love all of MJB's albums from when she first came out.
Mariah can outsing MJB any day of the week but im sticking with Mary
Mimi and MJB, thats a win-win situation!
***, what year is that picture from...
Mariah got her on the high notes but I like them both!
MARIAH WOULD OUTESELL MJB BUT I WOULD COP BOTH CD'S
Mariah, Mariah Mariah.
All day, EEER'Y day. I love MJB too, but there's nobody nowhere like Mimi.
She's my #1!!
Just a Crock of "***" I dont believe it MTO..that beef is all in your heads...these ladies have been around long enough and comfortable in their careers to know that they are totally different and their fans will support their work once its good... So that I dont believe...NEXT!!!!!!!!
they both been around forever, they are both good..mariahs voice is better...but they both got good albums....i will buy them both...
I think Britney Spears is gonna outsell them both!!! Nah, I'm just playing. Trying to stay awake on BORING MTO today.
I vote MJB, all day, everyday!
Mariah looks like a monster in this pic. Where did it come from?
MTO, you guys got it wrong. First off Mariah is not dropping her album in November, its december.
second, Mary J Blige and Alicia Key are dropping their albums on the same day....
So get it right.
This is a dard one but i'ma roll with Mary on this one...
THEY BOTH WEAK...LOL! WHY DO U PEOPLE LIKE RADIATION DRAMA QUEEN TRY TO ADVERTISE UR UGLY AZZ BF ON MTO? THEN WHEN SUM OTHER *** *** UR MAN, U READY 2 FIGHT?
and yall 4getin abt nov 13 when britney.alicia kesy,ja rule will also be rlsn their albums on da same day
mariah will sell more
gotta go with Mariah..I have been a huge Mariah fan for years because of her voice and her lyrics..I love Mary too, I have been a fan since 1992..but her voice isnt what it used to be and and her songs are not as hot as they used to be..they lost that hip-hop soul flava that I loved..plus if I hear her whine about her past in her songs one more time...and if these battles to sell records are becoming a trend, thats really corny
Why is there a contest??? Black people act like there's only room for one *** artist. They're 2 good singers that deserve they're shine equally! leave em alone! 231
Lies, Lies, Fckin Lies MTO!!!!
Mary is not even releasing her album til next year probably. BUT if by some chance this *** is REAL......
Team Mary, ALL THE EFFING WAY!!!
WELL I DON'T KNOW IF IT'S TRUE OR NOT BUT I AM A BIG FAN OF MARY'S SO OF COURSE I'M GOIN TO SAY MARY.
That's soooooo my favorite look for Mary J. Blige! She has the most beautiful raven-colored eyes, and she looks so humble and approachable without all the glamour. I love that girl!
As far as competiton, apples to oranges. I hate when ppl compare art against art. It's not about that. BUTTTT! Mary has had more of a very consistent caree. Whereas, Mariah was sucessful, had a nervous breakdown, when on hiatus for awhile and then cameback.
Mary's a better actress too.
MTO STFU ABOUT 50 *** KANYE KEEP PUTTIN THEY NAMES IN ALL YALL POSTS LOL.
AND I DOUBT MARY CD DROPPIN THIS YEAR ANYWAY...
Xactly @ Lis
Fck Mariah's pill poppin, comittin suicide ***, Mary has the game on lock.....
So Mary wins, FLAWLESS VICTORY!
I LOVE BOTH OF THEM AND MARIAH GONNA OUTSELL MARY IF THEY DROP THE SAME DAY :)
Mariah carey is going to outsell MJB without even trying. Shes the best selling female artist of all times. MJB its not a good idea to go against her baby. JLO tried it in 2005 and we all know what happened to her.
MARIAH CAREY all the way, i would bet my life savings on it....hopefully she could have a couple more number 1's to pass the beatles
Mariah Carey all the way that woman has REAL talent! She has the highest album selling record. she even bumped 50 cents when he was screaming that he remained number 1 and she is right under the BEATLES.
Mimi is the REAL talent!
How long has Mary been out? and what was her first successful record that literally got her in mainstream? Mary!
Mary's album will just be a bag of screaming.
Mariah Carey will ALWAYS beat ANYTHING mary j. blige can come up with. mary j. CANNOT SING!
well the grown folks are gonna buy Marys & the kids are gonna buy Mariah so its a real tossup. Ill probably buy both. btw, thats the best pic ive seen of both of them in a long time.
I love em both, but really, they both are old news. Sorry, but this one's not as exciting.
God don't like ugly so MJB will win
How are the kids going to buy Mariah? She's older than Mary. Mariah was popular with kids 10 years ago. Nobody is worried about Mariah's old *** now.
MARY WHO ELSE
Finally 2 albums dropping on the same day that I will actually BUY. I don't care who sells more, but if Mary outsells Mariah, she's gonna be EXTRA huge. Regardless, Mary's my *** and so is Mariah!
Comparing Mary to Mariah is a put-down to Mary.
Mariah will probably win, but everybody knows her record company has all kinds of tricks to skew the numbers.
they will both be successful, but mariah is more "mainstream" and mary is more r&b. Mariah has more whites and other races and more people overseas as her audience, which adds to the numbers. She may sell more because of this, but it doesn't make her better. she is just in a different category that has a more widespread audience. I personally will be buying mary's, not mariah's though.
They both are great atrist! Mary more then likely will sale more, then again anything is possible, who knows.
MC has that 9 Octave thing going, Cross over appeal, So many no'1 I've even lost count - Mary - girl I got your my back but...it aint looking too good for us at this point...you betta come back with some
OF THAT "REAL LOVE, I'M GOING DOWN ish - what's the 411 BABY...
I think its gon be mary j 4 sure...But mimi still doin her thang
***! why all these music artists competing nowadays. They both got money! Honestly I think Mariah will really sell. She got a pretty voice and Mary J. is cool too, but if Mariah make some dope tracks, she could really out-sell Mary!
I COULDN'T GIVE A RATS' AZZ. WHATEVER HAPPENED TO JUST RAW TALENT??? LET THE CD RIDE ON IT'S OWN MERITS WITHOUT ALL THE ***.
Mariah has a bigger white fan base.
THEY BOTH WEAK...LOL! WHY DO U PEOPLE LIKE RADIATION DRAMA QUEEN TRY TO ADVERTISE UR UGLY AZZ BF ON MTO? THEN WHEN SUM OTHER *** *** UR MAN, U READY 2 FIGHT?
but this is a true statement ...and I check out the myspace page and dude is not even cute
Mary J all the way!!!
I can't get past this picture of the two of them. Why do they both look so awful??
It's like it's two Mariah and Mary IMPERSONATORS instead of the real thing. Mary usually has her hair done properly and Mariah looks like she has on a cheap wig. WTH?
I CANT VOTE ON THIS ONE WE JUST HAVE TO WAIT AND SEE. I LOOVE THE BOTH OF THEM
This pic seems maaaad old.
Mariah will probably win, but MARY is my fave!
I mean this is kinda cute or watever but it is kind of stupid. its like everyone does not need to try to have this battle. and if people have a little bit of money they can just buy both of them the first week. But they should not make people have to choose between the two or make people spend like more that $20 for both of them.We all aint rich like them
Mary will *** on Mooriah, Mooriah is jus' going to sell *** and CHEAT her fans by lip synching and she manly has *** fans and you know *** are easily impressed by anything that a woman does that they wanna be like. Mary is the QUEEN and is consistent and NEVER fell off or had a nervous breakdown like Mooriah.
Who needs to win their both great. Stop trying to bring up drama.
***! Now mad artist are going to compete with each other by releasing their albums on the same day. Then the *** is gonna get wack.
I'm a fan of both but I've been loving Mariah since "Someday" She's my favorite singer. I'll probably get both but I'm definitely buying MC the day it comes out I have everyone of her albums. Hmmm I actually have allof Mary's too! That's tough.
people who say mary is a better singer that mariah obviously dont know anything about music. if you want to say you like marys voice better thats fine, but Mariah carey will sing circles around mary j. I love both women and think they will both sell well. But mariah carey is mariah carey. the best selling of all times. thats it peorid. MJB its not a realll good idea mama. i love you but chose your battles wisely. look what happened to JLO when she put her album around the same time as MARIAH. it didnt even sell a million copies, while mariahs sold 11 mill.
MTO if this is true MJB is just meant to be miserable. Her album is titled growing pains?? If she is still not happy she is just one of those miserable black chicks. She is rich, successful and married.
I am going to go with MIMI cause I want to hear an upbeat album not Mary feeling sorry for herself.
I WILL NEVER BY MARIAH CD.... NEVER HAVE NEVER WILL.............HER VOICE JUST GETS ON MY NERVES....
This is a way to help the lil mix chick get some tv shine since she has been away for a century...lol
MARIAH....................NOPE....... INNOCENT COMPETITION HOWEVER.... I HAVE MORE MARY CD'S IN MY LIFE TIME THEN MARIAH SCARY...LMAO
This is getting ridiculous
I go with Mariah...
I don't know. I like them both. Mariah hit them notes and Mary got that soul. I don't know.
umm...i hope mariah win because mary is getting on my *** nerves
MiMi will outsale Mary. Who's next to drop albums on the same day?
They look good with the natural look. Bt music *** be a competition of who can sell more! An artist can sell 1,000,000 copies bt only have 300,000 that are liked... Bt in my opinion I think Mariah would sell more bt Mary's would be more liked :)
move over RIhana ,MJB has a 5 head too
Mary and Mariah are both very talented R&B superstars. I grew up listening to them in the 90s and all I did was sing their songs as a little girly. I don't believe they are in a competition. They probably get along really well. I think they were both on Divas Live yall remember that VH1 show? Go head do yall thing girls. Both of them keep it real in their lyrics too.
Sorry he's not a BF(who says that sh-it)he's my husband.
I checked out ur page Butch31- and you and dude are in the dude tub together...men running around naked together GROSS.
@ Barebody get a man and life, who cares how u think my man looks.
I said check out the music idiots- Get a Life
Well they both will likely sell, but I gotta go with MJB! That's my girl!
You Are Now Rockin' With The Best!

You best believe my man is skinny, but he's big where it counts. Oh, and my man eats just fine, just because we live in an OBESE Society people don't know what a normal weight is. Go home a tell UR husband(if u really have one) to give U some Di-ck, because u spending to much time worrying about other men. Da-mn u must think my man is sexy or something- oh well u caught him 13 years too late.
And like I said B4 Have a Wonderful Day sweetie, I have better stuff to do than play LITTLE GIRL GAmes with U!!!

MARIAH SINGS! MARY WAILS..
All the youngings know MAry MAriah been out longer, has sold more , was the highest selling female artist of all time in the 90's, shes still out, the Emancipation of Mimi sold more than Mary's last album, however MAry won more grammy's(dont know why) but mary's cds are good and I like them both, just had to give yall some facts, look it up *** billboard.com and wilkopedia...lol
Mary J. blige is going to outsell Mariah In the first week because she holds that world record for biggest first week sales for an R&B female artist. 730,000 first week sales from "THE BREAKTHROUGH". also MJB has the world record for longest song on the #1 R&B billboard list. Passing Mariahs "We Belong Together" 14 weeks at #1. MJB 15 weeks at #!. Finally i think MJB might just outsell Mariah in the long run because mariah sales are weaker every time she *** out with a new one while MJB stands strong and hold her Grounds.
M&M GETTIN IT ON.YEAH IMMA BY MARY FOR MY MOM,AUNTS,COUSINS....EVERYBODY
mimi got this beat in her sleep. she has sold ALOT of albums. i have them all. even the *** ones (glitter). and i cop them the DAY they come out. nov. 20 is now circled on my calendar.

not-an-angel, i am with u..
i'm a big fan of mimi too....and she has more cd's than MAry, Mary's has had some doosies too u know...Love *** Life sucked....MAry- that sucked 2
she Dont get better with every album like some of these other ppl on here sayin...but we'll see
and i hate her part on Neyo's new song, shes whaling!
