Mariah Carey ready to waste not another instant asks, “Why You’re Mad? / Could it be that / You just lost the best thing / You’ve ever had?” on single “Infinity,” appearing on greatest hits album ‘Infinity to #1.’ After signing with CEO LA Reid on Epic records her light is beginning to shine brighter than recent years because, the proper team is behind her again. New album includes 17 songs penned by the singer available everywhere starting May 18th, 2015.

Mimi returns in need of emancipation freeing her stress in song with an exceptional vocal. Could this be the song to become her 19th #1 hit? Carey, now, holds the record for the most number #1 hits on Billboard more than any other female artist, in history. On the mid-tempo breakup song, cleverness remains, “Everything you own / You Still Owe”, “Sure is over / You ain’t gotta ask.” She swings a home run back into prominence with material worthy of sitting beside earlier material.

Skillful songwriting divinely reigns supreme in the chorus, “Close the door / Lose the key / Leave my heart on the mat for me / I was yours eternally / Theirs an inter-finity / To infinity.” Also, tender finger snaps, mellows the vibe, in the bridge, “Is it like a ice / Got you so cold / Have you ever felt this on your on? / Why you trying to play like you’re so grown”? Even more striking is musical aspects in the chorus, fearlessly exciting until the bridge comes in bestowing all its power upon us all.

The production here is stunning, completing, the overall freshness of the record for radio airplay on Urban. For instance, inside the verses, the beat becomes contemporary with 808 composition and changes in dramatic live instruments during the chorus. Most certainly, musical elements in the arrangement intensity as the song proceeds, giving an enduring impact.

As a single, Mariah Carey’s voice shines radiantly in the face of critics and haters even with sunglasses on. This song, without delay, shuts the door in every person’s face who say her voice dissipated. Of course, this song rewards with memories from the 5x Platinum album ‘The Emancipation Of Mimi.’ Fans waited patient for this precious moment, and she makes it all worthwhile, just wait for the ending high note.
