Genius announces an in-depth conversation with one of pop music's biggest names.
The most recent installment of Genius-Level honored iconic musician and songwriter Mariah Carey, in conversation with veteran music journalist and Genius' Head of Artist Relations, Rob Markman. The event took place in Brooklyn on Wednesday, November 14 in front of a live studio audience featuring some of Carey’s biggest fans. The latest Genius Level came just days before the release of Carey’s 15th studio album, Caution, which dropped on Friday, November 16, 2018.
“People know Mariah Carey is a voice for the ages, but not as many people realize she’s also one of our greatest songwriters. Her work behind the scenes and on stage set a new bar for solo artists, and her collaborations with everyone from Walter Afanasieff to Jermaine Dupri broke new ground in music,” said Elizabeth Milch, Genius’s Director of Content. “Mariah is responsible for lyrics, melodies, and arrangements that we love to sing… albeit not always in five octaves. She’s the pinnacle of a genius-level artist and we couldn’t be more excited to celebrate her artistic impact.”
