Mariah Carey’s “You’re Mine (Eternal)” Gets An Official Fedde Le Grand Remix: Listen

Mariah Carey has taken crossover appeal to a new level. Her new single off The Art of Letting Go, “You’re Mine (Eternal),” will receive three official dance remixes, the first by house DJ Fedde Le Grand.

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.

Le Grand’s remix of “You’re Mine (Eternal)” follows an R&B remix featuring Trey Songz, which Carey dropped the same day as the original itself. Hear it after the jump. More »

Mariah Carey Performs “You’re Mine (Eternal)” On A Baby Grand At ‘BET Honors’: Watch

Didn't I Need You Madly?
Mariah Carey‘s new single “You’re Mine (Eternal)” appears to have come and gone faster the diva’s enthusiasm for American Idol but an extraordinary performance at BET Honors (on top of a baby grand, no less) could rectify the situation. I certainly hope so because the recently surfaced clip is a reminder of just how great her comeback single is.

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 »

Mariah Carey’s Twins To Appear On ‘The Art Of Letting Go’

Dem babies are about to give Blue Ivy a run for her money. Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon‘s twin two-year-olds, Monroe and Moroccan, are going to be featured on Mimi’s new album, The Art Of Letting Go (out May 6). “It’s a song that I wrote with Bryan-Michael Cox and Jermaine Dupri. There’s a part that Jermaine says on the song that [the kids] loved, and Monroe started to say it,” Carey told People.

“I kept having to get my iPhone and record her. So I have all these different takes of her saying things, singing things. Then I’d be like, ‘This is your new ad lib — learn it!’ I have to make it fun for her.” More »

Mariah Carey’s “You’re Mine (Eternal)” Video Gets The Trey Songz Remix, Too: Watch

Watch Video
Like the song itself, Mariah Carey‘s “You’re Mine (Eternal)” video gets the Trey Songz remix. While the two never share a scene together, the clip incorporates a few extra glances into the young R&B singer’s (far more ordinary) world: a photography studio, a loft overlooking a glittering metropolis skyline, close-ups of his own bare chest.

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.

Mariah Carey’s “You’re Mine (Eternal)” Remixed By Jump Smokers & Kurd Maverick: Listen

Mariah Carey isn’t playing with “You’re Mine (Eternal)”. There is literally a version of this song for everyone. Want something slow and romantic? Stick with the original. Need a little urban flavor? Check out the Trey Songz remix. In the mood to dance? Well, Mimi’s got you covered too! Today (February 14) the legendary diva unveiled house mixes by Jump Smokers and a joint effort by Jermaine Dupri and Kurd Maverick.

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 »

Hugs & Kisses From Mimi
Mariah Carey isn’t taking any chances with new single “You’re Mine (Eternal)”. She has timed the release perfectly to coincide with Valentine’s Day, delivered an alternate hip-hop remix and hit the promo circuit with a vengeance — shading anything that moves. It’s only fitting then the video also be #triumphant and, as usual, Mimi delivers.

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 »

Mariah Carey Shades Ariana Grande And Nicki Minaj In Amazing Radio Interview: Watch

The Queen Of Shade
Mariah Carey is the queen of shade. Fans have known this since she snatched J. Lo‘s wig clean off her head in a German TV interview but the biggest diva in the game reinforced  her status by dropping by The Breakfast Show today (February 12) and speaking her mind about everything and everyone. So who was on Mimi’s hit list?

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 »

Ibrawlator: Rank Mariah Carey’s Most Recent Singles From Best To Worst

Rank Mimi's Singles!
It’s been a few years since Mariah Carey‘s last studio album, Memoirs Of An Imperfect Angel. And in that time, the almighty diva’s been good about serving up single after single for her loyal Lambily’s listening pleasure.

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 »

Mariah Carey’s “You’re Mine (Eternal)”: Review Revue

Mariah Carey‘s latest single, “You’re Mine (Eternal)”, is the fifth to be released ahead of her upcoming LP The Art Of Letting Go. Of course, whether previous cuts like “Triumphant,” “Almost Home,” “#Beautiful” and “The Art Of Letting Go” make the cut for Mimi’s new album remains to be seen.

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 »
