Whitney And Mariah To Share "Prince Of Egypt" Billing [From MTV]

According to the folks at DreamWorks, divas Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey will be splitting the worldwide top billing for their duet on the "Prince of Egypt" soundtrack, "When You Believe."

Last week, the two singers linked up to shoot the video for the ballad in Brooklyn, and despite the squabbling over top billing by their respective labels, the two seemed to get along just fine.

As Houston explained to MTV News' John Norris at the time, uniting and overcoming obstacles is what the song is all about. "The meaning behind the song is, you know, the book of Exodus," Houston said. "The children of Israel were crossing the desert and getting to the Promised Land. It's relative to any situation, trying to get over some obstacle to some other point in life, you know? So, it's just, the meaning of the song is really great."

The "Prince of Egypt" soundtrack arrives on November 17, and the duet can also be found on the upcoming solo albums from both Houston and Carey.
