This is in response to the ‘Remixes’ article by Anonymous. Sony Music has promoted—and still is promoting ‘The Remixes’. I’ve seen two different commercials on BET, MTV, The Box, VH1 and other various music channels no less than ten times each since October 4, 2003. Most radio stations are carrying a special promo for the new album, and a representative of Columbia says that posters for the album will begin appearing in densely-populated urban areas on Friday. So, to say that Sony is trying to sabotage the album is nothing more than a hasty generalization, and furthermore, the Columbia rep said Sony would have been overstepping its boundaries by doing heavy promotions. It was decided that Mariah herself and her team would do most of the promoting. ‘The Remixes’ was actually a joint venture between Def Jam and Columbia.
