AOL Music’s popular First Listen broadband program will debut “Yours,” the first of two tracks from Mariah Carey’s long-awaited new album “Charmbracelet,” beginning Monday (Nov. 18) at 12:01 a.m. ET. A second cut, “My Saving Grace,” will premiere Nov. 25. The release of “Charmbracelet,” the first on Carey’s MonarC imprint via Island Def Jam, has been moved to Dec. 3 from its originally scheduled Dec. 10 date. The first radio single, “Through the Rain,” is No. 17 on Billboard’s Adult Top 40 Tracks chart this week.
AOL has also lined up exclusive “first listens” with ‘N Sync’s JC Chasez and R&B outfit Dru Hill. Chasez’s debut solo track, “Blowing Me Up (With Her Love)” is streaming now via the promotion. The song will be released Dec. 10 by Jive on the soundtrack to the film “Drumline,” which opens Dec. 13 in U.S. theaters.
Dru Hill’s “She Said” and “I Love You” begin streaming tomorrow. Both are drawn from “Dru World Order,” the group’s first Def Soul album in four years. The set arrives Nov. 26.
All tracks are made available via Netscape Music and other AOL properties a day after they debut on First Listen.
