5H's "Like Mariah"
Fifth Harmony sample Mimi's "Always Be My Baby" on Reflection cut "Like Mariah." Listen.

Fifth Harmony sample Mariah Carey‘s “Always Be My Baby” on Reflection cut “Like Mariah” and then reference another Mimi masterpiece in the chorus. “Your lovin’ takes me higher, you set my heart on fire,” the ladies sing over the unmistakeable beat of the diva’s 1996 chart-topper. “When you touch my body, got me singin’ like Mariah.” If you’re wondering what the pop icon thinks about her tribute anthem — ponder no longer.

Mariah is totally here for her celebrity fans and gave the group her blessing on Twitter. “#nowplaying #LikeMariah by @FifthHarmony love it!! I appreciate and enjoy ya!” she tweeted while sipping champagne on a golden chaise lounge (or so I imagine). “Congratulations on your album!!” This is really sweet of the 44-year-old. Perhaps Fifth Harmony can perform the song at one of Mimi’s Vegas shows? See Godriah’s tweet below.
