Mariah Carey, ‘You’re Mine (Eternal)’ – Song Review

Mariah Carey You're Mine
IDJ

Mariah Carey revisits her classic, mid-to-late-’90s R&B form with her new single ‘You’re Mine (Eternal),’ a romantic, slower jam that celebrates a love she never wants to end.

While Mimi of the ’00s was very fond of incorporating hip-hop into the mix, she doesn’t do that here.

This is the type of track that made her one of the best-selling divas of her generation. It’s very much about her voice and pristine production, without all the added urban bells and whistles.

Releasing it in time for Valentine’s Day was a smart move on Mimi’s part. Her rich and warm vocal tone makes it sound like she is singing about her hubby Nick Cannon. There is not much in the way of vocal dramatics, as if Mimi is letting the emotions take priority. That is, until the 3:20 mark. That’s when Carey goes for it, with one of her acrobatic vocal runs.

That said, the song is a bit more dated than it is a throwback. It feels like she may have been trying to recapture the sound of her glory days since that formula has served her well, but her last few tracks haven’t gained as much traction at radio. ’90s nostalgia is rampant right now, so if Carey can take advantage of that, more power to her.
