I'm That Chick

Songfacts®:

  • This 1970s Soul-sounding track samples the melody of Michael Jackson's "Off The Wall."
  • This was produced by Stargate. Carey said of working with the Norwegian production team: "When I did 'That Chick' with Stargate, I was so excited to be in the room with Stargate because (Executive producer) L.A. Reid had said he really wanted me to get in a room with them and I am a fan of their work and they were such cool guys, such really talented, truly good people."
  • Carey added in the same interview: "It's sort of that song you want to listen to as a girl, you know, you wanna look at yourself in the mirror and go [sings] 'I'm that chick you like.' It's like preparation for a night out of feeling fly."
  • Mariah performed this song at the Conde Nast "Fashion Rocks" concert in 2008. Other artists to appear at Radio City Music Hall for the event where Rihanna, The Pussycat Dolls, Mary J. Blige, Kid Rock, Chris Brown, Michael Buble, Fergie, Beyonce, Miley Cyrus, Solange and Justin Timberlake. >>

  • This appears on Carey's 11th studio album, E=MC2, which was originally going to be titled That Chick after this song. The new title, a playful reference to Albert Einstein's mass-energy equivalence formula, implies the album is a new-and-improved sequel to its predecessor, The Emancipation Of Mimi, with E=MC2 standing for Emancipation of Mariah Carey to the second power. Both albums debuted at #1 in the US.
