  • The Emancipation of Mimi is the tenth studio album by American singer and songwriter Mariah Carey, released in the United States on April 12, 2005, through Island Records. Following the relatively poor critical and commercial reception to her eighth and ninth studio albums Glitter and Charmbracelet, The Emancipation of Mimi was considered Carey's "comeback album" by critics and became her highest-selling release in the US in a decade. In composing the album, the singer collaborated with many songwriters and producers throughout 2004, including Jermaine Dupri, Snoop Dogg, Twista, Nelly, Pharrell Williams and James "Big Jim" Wright, many of whom appeared as featured guests on select tracks. Carey opted to use her personal nickname 'Mimi' in the title, revealing a more intimate side of the singer, as seen in the album's declarative theme of emancipation from her personal and commercial setbacks. Although it has similar vocal production to her previous works and an inclination towards her signature ballads, the album encompasses dance-oriented and uptempo styles in keeping with its celebratory motif.
