Media Type Media Type. The video features Carey and her friends visiting a film theater and catching her boyfriend played by Jerry O'Connell on a date with another woman. Carey played herself and a brunette villainess named Bianca, during a physical altercation scene in between the two women. Due to contractual agreements at the time of its filming, Jay-Z was unable to make an appearance in the original music video, though he would appear in a recut version soon after.
The video was inspired by several other films, including Grease , Scarface and Enter the Dragon. With her sixth studio effort, Butterfly , Carey started infusing hip hop elements in her songs, working with different, and younger, producers and songwriters.
After the album's success, and the release of her first compilation album 1 's , Carey began to work on her seventh album, Rainbow While recording the album in Capri, Italy , Carey claimed to have spent most of the time developing what she felt to be a strong lead single.
Originally, "Heartbreaker" was intended to be part of Carey's debut film soundtrack , Glitter , however, after the film's delay, it was included on her album Rainbow.
And [DJ] Clue makes it really fun and stuff. While developing Rainbow , Carey had different ideas for the lead single. However, after completing "Heartbreaker", Carey felt it needed a strong male verse, hoping for a rising hip hop artist. She chose to work with Jay-Z and began re-arranging the song as he wrote out his verse.
Jay-Z is someone I admire as a writer and as an artist. We could be sitting in the studio, and he can freestyle a rhyme that would be incredible just off the top of his head. He doesn't need a pen and paper. I equate that to a singer who can pick up the mike and riff and ad-lib over a song and take you to a totally new place. Aside from her work with Clue and Jay-Z, Carey's longtime friend and background singer Trey Lorenz also took part in the song's production. He provided the back-up vocals in the song, and took part in several small areas of the development of Rainbow.
He's known me since before my first album, and he's a great, loyal friend. Aside from background vocal stylings from Lorenz and other women, Carey added her own lowered vocals into the song, giving the impression of a "doubled voice.
The song's hook and loop were taken and incorporated into the melody of "Heartbreaker", as well as being used as its main instrumental components. The lyrics are constructed in the verse-pre-chorus-chorus form. Carey starts with the hook "Gimme your love, gimme your love," repeated eight times.
It is the first of Carey's remixes that was produced by Desert Storm Records producer and rapper DJ Clue , who makes an introduction on the remix. I'm so excited about the remix. It's also gonna go on the album, and it features Missy Elliott and Da Brat, and it's kinda like a girl-power answer record, and it's to the loop of Snoop [Dogg]'s 'Ain't No Fun. The Desert Storm Remix received mixed reviews from music critics.
Stephen Thomas Erlewine chose the song as one of the top three cuts on Rainbow , alongside the original. Dara Cook from MTV called the song an "airy ditty" and wrote "[On the song] Mariah exudes as much sentiment as hollowed-out driftwood. Additionally, Gardner complimented Jay-Z's rap verses, calling them "sly. He called it a "rehash" of "Fantasy" and wrote "What self-respecting artist would have the gall to recycle the Tom Tom Club's 'Genius of Love' the source of 'Fantasy' for a second time in four years?
It's a given that pop will eat itself, but this sort of self-cannibalization should be illegal. Jay Z " was not the same sample as the one used in "Fantasy". Chuck Taylor from Billboard gave the song a mixed review, writing "Yes it's a hit, and her voice is in fine form, but 'Heartbreaker' is a disappointment in terms of what we know she's capable of writing. In the United States, "Heartbreaker" was released on September 21, In Canada, the song peaked at number one on the Canadian Singles Chart , becoming Carey's tenth chart-topper in the country.
It spent a total of eleven weeks fluctuating in the singles chart, and was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of New Zealand RIANZ , denoting shipments of over 15, units. In Europe, the song charted throughout several markets. In Austria, it debuted at number thirty-seven on the singles chart, eventually peaking at number seventeen. In total, "Heartbreaker" spent twelve weeks on the Austrian chart.
It charted for a total of fourteen weeks, and attained a peak of number eighteen. Additionally, the video was filmed in a comedic fashion, intended to remain something "fun and exciting. Jay-Z and Carey managed to film a scene for the video, which was briefly documented on Making the Video , although the documentary edited Jay-Z out of the footage to focus on Carey as to not violate the contractual agreement.
The video begins with Carey driving up to a large movie theater, the Los Angeles Theatre in downtown Los Angeles, with several of her female friends. As they pull up to the front doors, they tell Carey that her boyfriend is inside with another woman, leading her to try to convince them to abort the plan of confrontation.
After convincing her, they enter the theater and begin a series of small dance routines alongside some of the theater employees. As the music begins, scenes of them dancing and Carey entering the movie projection room inter-cut.
Carey sits behind her boyfriend played by Jerry O'Connell and the woman he is cheating with, Bianca Storm, who appears to be Carey sporting a short brown wig and red seductive clothing, and spies on them in a comedic way with her female lackeys.
Soon after, Storm leaves her seat and walks towards the bathroom, prompting Carey to follow her during a short interlude in the video. After running into each other by the washroom, Carey pokes Storm, starting a large brawl between the two women. Afterwards, Carey appears to have defeated Storm, and heads back towards the movie room. During this scene, Jay-Z's rap verse is played, while an animated clip of Jay-Z and Carey is projected onto the screen, with an announcement that Jay-Z would appear in the video two weeks from the premiere date.
This is followed by a scene where Carey and her friends, wearing oversized bob wigs, dance around in a bedroom. Later, a version of the video was released where Jay-Z raps his verse in a jacuzzi while Carey and a security guard appear behind, followed by segments of the animated film. Teriyaki Boyz.

John Coltrane one minute, Miles Davis the next. Her shift out of the chorus back to the verse is as subtle as the preceding entrance is raw.
An instinctive angular phrase, it's effectively beyond verbal description. It's a truly remarkable piece of improvisation - it actually does remind me of the way Miles would play across changes. For me, this is up there with Marvin Gaye's "Trouble Man" as a piece of soul singing - not actually virtuosic, simply a beguiling mixture of natural technical genius and heartfelt expression.
It lasts for almost 3 minutes, but it actually lasts about half-an-hour, because you'll just lift the needle back to the start again, such is the fascination this track inspires. Academics are intrigued by the fact that the DJ makes a living by filtering information; he makes sense of the confusing mass of musical information that bombards us there are well over dance singles released each week. There's no way that we could find all the great music within our favorite genre, so we rely on DJs to do it for us.
They are like personal shoppers who sift through the hundreds of crap records and find the ones we like. These days, fewer and fewer people buy singles; instead, we decide on our favorite DJs and let them buy them for us.年代Deep Slowチューンのセレクション！[ DJ Kiyo キヨ R&B スロウジャム Slow Jam 年代 90年代 ]。【CD・MixCD】Melting Body Music Vol.2 / DJ Kiyo[M便 2/12]mixcd24 【MixCD24】 音楽cd ドライブ おすすめ BGM.
