Mariah Carey delayed

Billboard are reporting Mariah Carey (as well as other artists) has pushed back her forthcoming twelfth album, Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel. The album is now set for a September 15th release date, forcing Carey to acquire chart competition from Jay-Z, Whitney Houston and possibly Christina Aguilera. The new single "Obsessed" recently debuted at #11 on the US chart, far from the flop some have claimed the single to be.

If the song doesn't solidify as a commercial success, the albums push back could allow a second single to acquire that feat. A negative aspect about this is that Carey has now missed the dateline for the Grammys, Memoirs, is now ineligible to be nominated for any awards until 2011.
