"Up Out My Face" is a song performed by American R&B singer Mariah Carey. Written by Carey, Terius Nash, Christopher Stewart the song features on her twelfth studio album, Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel. It was remixed to feature American rapper, Nicki Minaj and then released on February 16, 2010 as the intended lead single from Carey's now cancelled thirteenth studio album and second remix album, Angels Advocate.
The song was moderately successful having peaked at number 39 on the US Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. The accompanying music video, produced by Carey and husband, Nick Cannon, takes place in a store and features Carey and Minaj as Barbie characters. Soon after release it was announced that Angels Advocate was cancelled and so subsequent promotion and releases of the song ceased.
A music video was shot in December 2009, along with the video for "Angels Cry (Remix)" featuring Ne-Yo. Both videos were co-directed by Carey and her husband Nick Cannon. They premiered together on VEVO.com on January 27, 2010. Cannon makes a cameo in the video in a reference to his 2002 film, Drumline.
The video features Carey and Minaj as several different characters. In one scene, they are dressed as Barbie dolls who escape their boxes. In another scene they are dressed as nurses. Another finds them in a nail salon. There are also several scenes of the two attending a shopping store wearing large dresses. Minaj said that Carey said, "Everybody's gonna say 'she's doing Nicki.' But I told her, she's always had a doll persona, like all that 'doll baby' [stuff]. So it goes perfect with Barbie and we had fun. That's all that matters."
In a review of the video, Chris Ryan of MTV News said, "No offense to the imperfect angel or anything, but Nicki kinda steals the show here, dressed up like Nurse Barbie, referencing Trey Songz' "LOL" in a British accent, she basically pops balloons all over this thing." Shaheem Reid of MTV said that "the two bust out and have a good time changing outfits and playing with men," and that "The doll angle plays perfectly with Nicki's "black Barbie" personality." The video also features an appearance by TV personality B. Scott.
