In addition to celebrating his recent Grammy win, Atlanta producer DJ Toomp is excited about a coveted spot he recently landed on Mariah Carey’s upcoming album E=MC2.

 

Toomp, who was nominated for two Grammy’s for his production work on Kanye West’s “Good Life” featuring T-Pain and “Can’t Tell Me Nothing,” ultimately took home a Grammy for Best Rap Song for “Good Life.”

 

“I felt like I won when I was nominated, but to actually win feels even better,” Toomp said.

 

Carey is banking on the DJ Toomp produced track “Lovin’ You Longtime” to produce similar results for her highly anticipated 11th studio album E=MC2, which was reportedly titled That Chick.

 

“Having a record on a Mariah Carey album is huge as a producer and especially for me since this is one of the first songs I’ve placed on an R&B album,” DJ Toomp told AllHipHop.com. “It’s definitely an honor.”

 

E=MC2 is the follow up to Carey’s album The Emancipation of Mimi, which sold over 10 million copies worldwide.

 

In addition to work on Carey’s’ album, DJ Toomp, who produced Glasses Malone’s current single “Certified” featuring Akon, is also working on new albums coming from T.I., Ludacris and Nas.

 

In related news, the first single from Carey’s album will be “Touch My Body,” which was written and produced by Carey, Tricky and The Dream.

 

The video will be directed by veteran Brett Ratner, the eye behind movies like Rush Hour, Rush Hour 2 and Hip-Hop videos for rappers like LL Cool J, Sean “Diddy“ Combs and The Wu Tang Clan.

 

“Mariah is musically at the top of her game and has never looked better,” Ratner assured AllHipHop.com. “This will be our 5th music video we have collaborated on and definitely the best one yet visually, as well as musically. The video [for “Touch My Body”] is the perfect combination of fantasy and comedy with Mariah looking more beautiful than she has ever looked, ever.”

 

Mariah Carey’s E=MC2 is due in stores on April 15.
