That is what I am trying to figure out as well. I wonder what extra features it has. If I find out, I will post here. Please do the same! =)

Agree, Do you use ITUNES at all?? I am asking because it's only 12.99 on here. I may buy my copy on there, not sure which version to get though. This deluxe version has 3 extra tracks, while the regular version comes only with 15 tracks.

I do, but I am a die hard Mariah Carey fan. Any album she puts out I always buy the hard copy and I always will. I only do that with her and Jay Z.

Okay, so the deluxe has three extra songs? I believe I have made my decision. Thank you!

Hi, the Deluxe Version has three extra songs, one is "The Art of Letting Go," one of her best songs ever, "It's a Wrap," a song from Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel that she then made a duet with Mary J. Blige and "Betcha Gonna Know Part 2", a duet with R. Kelly; the first part was on Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel and was a good song with Mariah at the end saying "To be continued..." I had wondered if the second version would be on here. This cd should have been released surprise style like Beyoncé. Mariah's die hard crazy fans were throwing a fit though, and to avoid criticism she released the song for pre-order with a set release date, and the one thing she must do is what I believe she is doing - Album only for every song. If people want to buy anything they have to buy the whole album. The thing is that Mariah is not one who one or two good songs on her albums, every time she delivers.

OMG! I am super excited now! Ahhh, duets dahhhhling, duets! I cannot wait for this album. I love her so much! I will however, wait and see if the deluxe hard copy is cheaper at Target. This price just seems ridiculously expensive for Amazon. Thank you so much, fellow lamb for the info. I loved "Betcha Gonna Know."

All these guest rappers is so 1994. Mariah started out as a backup singer and seems to be ending up as one again -- on her own records! After floating the appalling "Triumphant" months ago, a song done by two awful rappers with Mariah's backup vocals faint in the background, it looks like more of the same on the album.

Mariah must be having serious vocal difficulties if she lets boring rappers do the majority of her songs, and -- like on this song -- only sings with others voices, live or recorded, doubling her. And that rapper talking b.s. OVER her singing, which is truly bizarre -- it sounds like two radio stations playing at the same time.

For this Mariah fan it's been all downhill since she divorced Mottola. He made her work hard. Now she lets rappers fill in for her. It's too bad.

Damn, you brought Mottola back into this. You went hard. Well, I will say (as a devoted lamb) what I have heard so far I do not really like. I think the, "Thirsty" song sounds too busy, like you were saying. Just a bunch of noise. So far I am on very pleased with that I have heard. If you didn't know already, you can listen to the whole album on I tunes radio.

I pre ordered the cd and I just received it. Let me first start of by saying I am a HUGE fan have every single cd + every single she has ever released also paid $1000 for 4th row seats, with that said this album is NOT good. I am so disappointed with how bad this album is. I actually may sell it cause I will only listen to beautiful.

I just ordered the Target edition and I got the regular deluxe instead, I'm so mad and Target does not even sell the regular deluxe which does not make any sense! Did anyone order the Target edition and get the exclusive cover and bonus track?

I bought the Target deluxe edition at Target and the bonus song is America the Beautiful incase anyone is wondering. And I think the exclusive cover looks better too.
