UPDATE (2/14): The video for Mariah's silky new ballad comes complete with a glittering, topless Carey singing in a tropical forest. Best Valentine's Day ever for lambs? It'll be hard to top this one, Mimi. Watch above and don't miss the Trey Songz remix below.
Like leaked LQ recordings indicated, "You're Mine (Eternal)" hits that sweet spot between R&B and pop a la Mimi's past No. 1s "Touch My Body" or "Always Be My Baby." Look out for a drawn-out whistle at the song's end, a lasting reminder of Carey's unmatched supremacy when it comes to diva-high notes.
The track's official remix (below) features fellow R&B/pop star Trey Songz, turning "You're Mine (Eternal)" into a lovey-dovey duet. The duo are backed by a more modern production than the original, with sharper snares, woozy electronic embellishments and even a little Auto-Tune.
"You're Mine (Eternal)" is the fourth single off Mariah's delayed The Art of Letting Go album, now set for May 6.
