Mariah Carey's Infinity sounds just like the '90s
Mariah Carey released “Infinity” on Sunday, the new single off her forthcoming greatest hits compilation, Mariah Carey #1 To Infinity.
“Close the door, lose the key, leave my heart on the mat for me,” Carey belts on the track, which is also available through iTunes and Spotify. “I was yours eternally. There’s an end to infinity.”
Set for release on May 18 via Epic Records and Columbia Records/Sony Legacy, Mariah Carey #1 to Infinity reunites Carey with Antonio “L.A.” Reid, who helped reinvigorate the singer’s career with 2005’s The Emancipation of Mimi. The new record will tally up Carey’s 18 No. 1 Billboard hits, meaning songs such as “Always Be My Baby” and “Heartbreaker” feature prominently. (Carey’s fond of the #1 to Infinity moniker: it’s also the name of her Las Vegas residency, which stars on May 6.)
A video for “Infinity” is due soon from director Brett Ratner. For now, the lyric video — which looks like something off a Disney DVD — will have to suffice.
