As you may or may not know, Mariah Carey‘s ridiculously-titled fourteenth album has been streaming on iTunes for the past week and it isn’t as bad as people were generally expecting.
The impressive collection has certainly left fans and critics puzzled at the various single choices made recently – Thirsty is three minutes of formulaic irony tailored for urban radio – as there are several other songs that would have been better choices to lead the campaign.
Songs like the Wale-assisted You Don’t Know What To Do for example, which is arguably Mariah’s best recording since the MiMi days.
The track opens with the self-proclaimed diva proving that her vocals are still solid as she belts out a piano-led intro similar to Donna Summer‘s On The Radio before the song swirls into a roller-skate disco anthem.
Me. I Am Mariah… The Elusive Chanteuse will be released in the UK on May 26.
