Mariah Carey’s “You’re Mine (Eternal)”: Hear The New Ballad & The Trey Songz Remix

Mariah Carey dropped her new single a little early today (February 12)! The diva posted “You’re Mine (Eternal),” an understated ballad co-written with Darkchild that fits right alongside the effortlessness of “Beautiful.” While not as immediately catchy as that song, this one’s got a nice, lilting beat and should keep fans satisfied about the direction she’s going in for this latest era.

Mimi reins in her powers for much of the song, making listeners wait for the payoff at the end, which of course is a triumphant whistle register to close out the track. And if that left you wanting more, you’re in luck because she also dropped the remix featuring Trey Songz.

The video for “You’re Mine” premieres tonight at 7:50 p.m. ET on MTV, and the video for the remix drops Friday on BET. Hear both versions of the new ballad below. More »
