TUNES: Keeping with the successful formula that made The Emancipation of Mimi the best-selling album of 2005, Mariah Carey's new album E=MC' shies away from too much experimentation, offering slick, beat-heavy crowd pleasers reminiscent of its predecessor's song cycle. Check out the standout Danja-produced track 'Migrate"(featuring T-Pain), whose hypnotic beat will set aflame any dance floor. Mimi's E=MC' hits stores Tuesday, April 15. In the meantime, watch her video for the far-from-subtle single "Touch My Body," featuring 30 Rock's Jack McBrayer. Aww, we love our dorky NBC page.
