Mariah Carey在2009年发行了自己第12张录音室专辑。在2009年5月20日下午3:27,她在自己的Twitter页面公布了新专辑的名字,Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel。在留言中她写道:Bcuz I Love U, I want u to be the first to know the title of my new album "Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel" Its very personal & dedicated to u

2009年6月9日,Mariah也通过Twitter网络宣布了这张专辑的首支单曲"Obsessed"。在后来的留言中她提及这首歌的时候,说这首歌"Its different for me, but clearly, its SO me!"

专辑的发行也是极富变化,最早唱片公司宣布专辑于8月25日发行,甚至Mariah能此专辑参加2009格莱美评比,但随后专辑推迟至9月15日发行,接着专辑被再次推迟至9月29日。相关宣传活动也被一推再推。按照Mariah的原话,她只是想要将专辑做的更为完美。

首支单曲"Obsessed"的MV于2009年6月18日在B96电台首播。

新专辑大多歌曲由Mariah, The-Dream和Tricky Stewart三人制作,其中"It's A Wrap"为Mariah独立创作。此外James "Big" Wright与Los Da Mystro也参与了部分制作工作。

2009年9月15日,第二支单曲"I Want To Know What Love Is"派发电台,唱片公司希望Mariah借由此歌引领市场重回抒情风格,而这首翻唱自Foreigner的经典歌曲也让Mariah再度获得市场关注和肯定。

100%

最开始这是Mariah为电影Precious特别创作的主题曲,在电影宣传期间,经由制作人Jermaine Dupri和某电台曝光过片段。但后来电影导演Lee Daniels决定放弃使用这首歌,改为由Mary J. Blige演唱的"I Can See In Color"。Mariah并没有为此感到不快,而告诉歌迷说,她会将这首歌用在更好的地方。100%

谈到不使用这首歌作为Precious主题曲的原因时,导演Lee Daniels说:“我并不想使用Carey的音乐。为此我也做了思想斗阵。这对我来说是非常大而且艰难的选择。因为我想确保让大家注意到她的表演。她在电影中出色的表演对我来说比什么都重要。”

最终"100%"作为2010年冬奥会AT&T Team USA Soundtrack原声带曲目于2010年2月9日在美国iTunes和AT&T无线网络独家数字发行。这首歌由Mariah Carey, Jermaine Dupri, Crystal Johnson和Bryan-Michael Cox联合创作,后两人制作,Mariah未参与制作。

在Mariah举行"Angels Advocate"巡回演唱会多伦多站的时候,拍摄了这支单曲的音乐录影带。最终这首歌在NBC的奥运会频道播出,除了Mariah演唱画面外,还有美国冬奥会运动员的比赛场景。
