Find out what all the Idolator editors had to say about Mariah Carey's "Infinity" single.

Sevyn Streeter has been laying low on the music scene since the announcement of her On The Verge LP, but the artist has now released a video for her new tune — “4th Street.”

The track, which is not billed as the second single, is a piano-laden mid-tempo that samples Tears for Fears’ 1985 tune “Everybody Wants to Rule the World.” The accompanying video finds Sevyn showing us her hometown in Florida as well as her various relatives who helped make her into the person she is now. She shared with fans on Twitter the meaning behind it:

“I wrote ‘4th Street’ on a day I found out someone I loved broke my heart into a million pieces. While I was in the recording booth, I cried like a baby…However, instead of channeling that hurt & anger into a song like ‘B.A.N.S.’. I decided to focus on all the good people in my life.”

“4th Street” is the latest taste of Sevyn’s debut On The Verge album, with the first being the uber-catchy Chris Brown-assisted single “Don’t Kill The Fun.”
