The self-proclaimed Elusive Chanteuse has unveiled the newest artwork for her latest single ‘You Don’t Know What To Do,’ and it’s so badly photoshopped, it’s almost painful to look at.
Mariah’s head seems to have been attached to another person’s body in a very uncomfortable pose that could’ve only been done digitally with the expertise of digital enhancements.
It’s so unfortunate because Mariah is doing herself no justice with this. The album itself, which sold a measly 65,000 copies in its first week, has been heavily criticized ever since the album artwork was first unveiled. We all know Mariah doesn’t look like that.
Weeks later, we told you about that infamous Twitter photo Mariah posted of herself online — it’s a slimmer looking Carey from a photo she took a decade ago but she made it out to be new as she told fans she was “spending time” with her babies. It’s just ridiculous.
The singer, who made it clear that all artwork is usually approved by her before its handed out to stores, tweeted about the unfortunate single cover, saying: “That definitely was NOT my selection for the cover… ugh!”
She continued: “Yes, I would love for you to send me your art work #YDKWTD (‘cause at this point IDKWTD! lol),” attached with several emoji symbols.
Well, Mariah you need to get this project together. It’s been a mess from the beginning — and we’re not referring to the music on the album because the songs are solid and could’ve been potential hits, but the marketing strategy and the branding for this record has been so messy, people are over it now.
And with the heavily airbrushed and photoshopped artworks, the 45-year-old is doing herself no justice. It’s actually quite embarrassing.
