While the original is mostly hushed, leading gradually until Carey unleashes her whistle register, Le Grand (of 2006′s “Put Your Hands Up for Detroit”) wastes no time in building the song’s energy. The diva’s swooning vocals soar over a pulsing piano melody, helping the Dutch-born artist build a swift crescendo before the remix’s first breakdown.

Many ladies have performed on pianos over the years — it’s an old trick — but few have served ‘diva’ as enjoyably as Mimi. She looks spectacular in a cleavage-exposing evening dress and even dusted off her diamonds to complete the eye-popping ensemble. I’m not sure how live her vocal is but at this stage of her career Mariah can literally just sit there and still win. Watch up top. More »
Less an actual collaboration than a video mash-up, the “You’re Mine (Eternal)” video’s a somewhat savvy attempt at crossover appeal: pop and R&B/hip-hop airplay, fans of R&B old and new, people who taped Butterfly-era posters to their dorm room walls and fangirls eager to hear Songz’ new album Trigga, out this summer.

And things heated up in pop world, too! Mariah Carey got our hearts beating with “You’re Mine (Eternal),” Katy Perry unveiled Katy Patra in her “Dark Horse” trailer and Nicki Minaj got downright vicious on “Lookin Ass Ni–a.” As always, you guys had plenty to say. Check out the week’s best comments below! More »
Every lamb worth their Glitter DVD knows that nothing gets the party started like a Mariah remix. And that’s particularly true when the ever-reliable and awesome Jump Smokers are involved. The Chicago DJs do a great job of overhauling “You’re Mine (Eternal)” as do the unexpected pairing of long-time Mimi collaborator Jermaine Dupri and German house DJ Kurd Maverick. Their take on the song has a harder edge that will, no doubt, get any dancefloor humming. Listen after the jump. More »
Lambs will loose all control when they see what Mariah has in store for them. She serves sexy mermaid realness — swimming underwater in an evening gown, no less — before perching in a tree and singing like the most beautiful bird in the rainforest. If that’s not enough glamour how about Trey Songz‘ magnificent six pack or a nude Mimi covered in glitter? Let me press repeat. More »
First in line was former American Idol colleague Nicki Minaj. Mariah refused to even acknowledge her existence, saying “who?” when asked a question. She then ripped into the show implying it was beneath her. (Fair enough). Other highlights include the Lamb Whisperer dissing Ariana Grande (“I wish everybody all the best of luck and if this is the career path they choose, hope that they can achieve longevity”).
Mimi also claimed not to have heard Beyonce‘s “Drunk In Love” but tempered it by saying “I love [her]“. It looks like the pop icon has truly perfected the art of reading lessors like a library book and I’m all for it. The 43-year-old has reached the point in her career where she can do whatever she likes. Especially when her new music is as good as “You’re Mine (Eternal)”. Watch up top. More »
So far, we’ve been treated to “Triumphant (Get ‘Em),” last year’s summertime jam with Miguel, “#Beautiful,” her Oz the Great and Powerful soundtrack theme “Almost Home” and “The Art Of Letting Go.” And most recently (today, in fact!), Mimi’s provided us with her latest Rodney Jerkins-produced R&B jam, “You’re Mine (Eternal)” in time for Valentine’s Day.
Obviously, then, there’s a lot of Mariah to go around. But which Mimi moment has been your favorite and most festive so far? We want to know. More »
What we do know is that “You’re Mine” has arrived just in time for Valentine’s Day (the song is now available for download on iTunes, Lamb lovers!), and it plays like a bit of a retread of Carey’s 2005 smash, “We Belong Together.” Don’t believe us? Then head below to see what the critics had to say about the Rodney Jerkins-produced track. (Hint: They’re also hearing shades of Mimi’s hit Emancipation Of... ballad.) More »
