Song of the Week: Mariah Carey "Infinity"
Tue, 12 May 2015 10:18:53
Pop's most powerful diva adds another jewel to her crown with new single.
Mariah Carey sounds as powerful, poignant, and passionate as ever on "Infinity"—our Song of the Week. "Infinity" is the new single from her forthcoming Mariah Carey #1 to Infinity [Epic Records/Columbia Records/Sony Legacy], which hits shelves May 18 and encompasses all 18 of her #1 singles from the Billboard Hot 100. She's got more number ones than any other solo artist ever, and 17 of them she personally wrote. However, "Infinity" caps off this career-spanning set with a bright spotlight on the future.
She co-wrote and produced "Infinity," and it possesses a cinematic expanse that reaches levels of fairy tale bombast, bliss, and beauty. The music itself resounds as if it were a royal coronation. It's really just Mariah confidently taking the pop crown once more. Her voice remains utterly transcendent and transfixing throughout. That final crescendo of "I believe infinity is more than just a made up dream" stands on par with her biggest and best vocal performances. The track is utterly alive when she breathes into it.
Last week, she launched MARIAH CAREY #1's her headlining residency at Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, bringing that catalog of smashes to the stage with a new production. Mariah is making a big statement, and she's continuing one of the most vibrant and vital legacies and pop music. This new music is going to last beyond "Infinity" as well.
