There is a rumor circulating that Mariah Carey will not release a remix of "Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel" at all. The album titled "Angels Advocate" was supposed to be on sale on March 30 in the U.S. but That Grape Juice is reporting that the record has been shelved and that it is already official.

"Advocate" indeed was in the quiet zone in the last few weeks despite the approaching release date. CD Now which previously listed the album to hit the shelves later this month has changed the status to "Released Cancelled". Carey's camp however, has not responded to the report.

Released in September 2009, "Memoirs" could only peak at number 3 on Billboard Hot 200. Meanwhile, "Advocate" is to include tracks from the original album remixed by producers such as Timbaland, Jermaine Dupri, The-Dream, and Swizz Beatz among others. "Up Out My Face", the first single from the EP has been released last month, featuring the addition of Nicki Minaj's voice.

Seriously over people that are always trashing MC. She is one of the most talented female artist of our town. If you don't like her then fine. Run off and listen to some other singer who probably would freak at the thought of attempting to sing one of her songs ! Its sad that Island Def Jam wouldn't release this. The Queen of Remix would of no doubt smashed it outta the water w' this album. It explained why she never did any duets with anyone for MOIA. =)LOVE YOU MC !

I think that it might be better that the album was shelved. Mariah really gotten beaten out in sales by Whitney Houston, Barbra Streisand and the overexposed and oversaturated "it girl" Beyonce'. Mariah definitely really needs to re-think her sound

Why do people hate on Mimi. I dont get it. Angels cry is brilliant and the kind of ballad from her old days. That song will give you chills it's so good.
