According to Jermaine Dupri, music producer and boyfriend of Janet Jackson, the rumored duet between Mariah Carey and Janet is going to happen. This is despite the fact that Mariah Carey has stated that she doesn’t know anything about it. The question is, will the world care, especially if Janet Jackson‘s forthcoming CD continues with her trend of declining sales?
He tells MTV News, “I got a mean idea, so look for it. It’s gonna happen… Please believe that.” And producer Dupri, who is largely responsible for Carey’s 2005 comeback, insists the duet could be wrapped up in time for the repackaged release of Jackson’s much-anticipated new album “20 Years Old.” He adds, “We’re definitely gonna do a repackage on the album once it comes out. Hopefully it’s successful and people buy into it, then I’m going back in the studio. “The closer I get to that idea (for Janet and Mariah), the more I know where it should be at. It’s feeling like it’s gonna happen.”
