WorldÂ’s Top-Selling Female Artist to Produce Original Ringtones and Star in National TV Commercial for PepsiÂ’s Summer Promotion - Pepsi Cool Tones & Motorola Phones

Mariah Carey will take center stage with Pepsi in a unique partnership this summer. The Grammy Award-winning artist will write and record original ringtones that will be available exclusively through the Pepsi Cool Tones & Motorola Phones promotion.

The Pepsi Cool Tones & Motorola Phones promotion is giving music fans the opportunity to download more than 100 original ringtones created specifically for the program by some of the summerÂ’s hottest artists, including 20 original voice and music tones written and produced by Mariah Carey. This marks the first time top musicians and producers have written music and lyrics in the ringtone format for a large scale promotion.

The consumers who participate in the Pepsi Cool Tones & Motorola Phones promotion will also have the opportunity to win their choice of Motorola phones including the Motorola RAZR™ and Motorola SLVR™. Additional information about the promotion can be found on www.pepsismash.com.

"I had a lot of fun with this project. It was a great creative outlet because musically I could do things here that I would never think to do for one of my albums, said Mariah Carey. “This was a great idea by Pepsi, and I'm happy to be a part of it."

Carey will kick off the Pepsi Cool Tones and Motorola Phones promotion with a national TV commercial in May, which will be directed by Paul Hunter and created by BBDO, New York, PepsiÂ’s long-time agency. Hunter, an award-winning director of music videos and commercials, has directed the videos for a number of CareyÂ’s chart-topping hits including the video for her latest single Say Somethin'.

CareyÂ’s partnership with Pepsi also includes an exclusive Pepsi Smash concert this summer at the intimate Kodak Theater in Los Angeles on July 29, which will be the first stop of her highly anticipated tour. Music fans will be able to WIN TICKETS to the show, CareyÂ’s first full concert performance in over three years, via radio and retail promotions across the country.
