Melanie Amaro Talks Mariah Carey Duet For New Album

US X Factor winner Melanie Amaro has big plans for her $5 million winnings and her debut album under L.A Reid’s label, Epic Records. Amaro was named the first winner of the US version of X Factor last month. The 19-year old power house dished to Access Hollywood about her plans with her winnings,

“A foot massager. I think that’s ultimately, right now, what I truly, truly want and need.”

While Melanie only desires a foot massager at the moment she’s willing to splurge a little bit more on her mother.

“I think my mom deserves a nice house, a big kitchen so she can cook, a nice big bedroom and a big bed, I feel that she deserves it,” stated Melanie.

After getting her first purchases out of the way the X Factor winner can get to work on her debut album. In an interview with AOL Music, Melanie revealed what listeners can expect from the album,

“I’ll definitely have that same sound, but I’m going to surprise people with what’s on the album and who is on the album. You’ve got to stick around and wait, I’m not going to give anything away! I would like to work with Mariah Carey, and you know, whatever artists who wants to do a song with me and thinks they can stand up to my voice!”

If Amaro is looking for competition, Mariah can more than deliver.
