Mariah Carey Makes Triumphant Return
"Meek adds an excitement, a newness to the record that is pretty rare right now," Carey said in a conference call with the media just prior to the song's release. "Working with Ross and Meek on the same record was incredible. Obviously, Ross is a star and everybody loves him. I'm a fan of his music. I really, really wanted to work with him. I love the tone of his voice. I think the contrast of his voice and mine would be something special. I always like to do collaborations that people might think are different."
The new song is the first single from Mariah's upcoming – and still untitled – studio album, her 14th. "I'm collaborating with a lot of my favorite people but the main thing is [that] I'm not trying to follow any particular trend," said the pop superstar. "I want it to be well received. I want to stay true to myself and the music that I love and make the fans happy." Listen to the new song here.
