Mariah Carey & YG’s “I Don’t” Cover Is A Lot To Process
God bless Mariah Carey and Photoshop for injecting a little glamor and elegance into the barren wasteland that is 2017. The pop legend outdoes herself on the cover of new single, “I Don’t” — posing seductively in the back of YG’s ride in virginal white lingerie. I’m a little disappointed she’s not holding a glass of champagne, but this still belongs in the Louvre. Does the music match the brilliance of the artwork? It’s hard to tell from a 50 second snippet, but it does sound very promising.
“Gave you everything that you needed, I was even down to repeat it,” Mimi coos over rolling percussion. “Said that you’d always be mine, feeding me nothing but lies.” The song really kicks into gear when the Lamb Whisperer schools her ex in matters of the heart. “Cause when you love someone you just don’t treat them bad,” she preaches on the Donnell Jones-interpolating chorus. “You messed up all we have. Probably think that I’m coming back, but I don’t.” The track arrives in full on February 3. Listen to a preview below.
