Mariah’s first single, now cited as “Touch My Body”, previously scheduled for radio adds on January 29th, has been pushed back by two weeks.
According to the newly-updated New Releases list from All Access, the song will now impact Top 40/Mainstream and Top 40/Rhythmic-Crossover radio stations on February 12, 2008.
“Touch My Body” was first revealed on MariahDailyJournal as a new title from Mariah’s upcoming album. It was later confirmed that in a Universal Music office meeting, L.A. Reid had asked staff members to vote for their favorite song between his first single choice – “That Chick” and “Touch My Body”. Apparently, “Touch My Body” was Mariah’s choice for the first single.
I still can’t take Mariah seriously with a title “That Chick” blindly without hearing the track – Touch My Body seems to appear more appealing. Not to mention – what is taking so long to release the track to the airwaves?
