Mariah Carey announces album and drops third single
Mariah Carey is on a roll! Lots has been said in recent years about the ultimate pop diva, but she is quickly proving she still got what it takes. Only a few weeks ago she made her comeback with the sultry, but oh so sassy R&B tune ‘GTFO’. It was only branded a promo track, while the romantic ballad ‘With You’ was put forward as official first single. Mariah now announced that her next album titled Caution will be out on the 16th of November and of course we celebrate that with another new track; ‘The Distance’ featuring Ty Dolla $ign.

‘The Distance’ is surprisingly produced by Skrillex and Poo Bear, but don’t expect heavily electronic breakdowns and all that. ‘The Distance’ is actually perfectly in line with its two predecessors. Smooth, sultry, midtempo R&B with a contemporary touch. Mariah’s vocals sound their best when she belts out the chorus and the track as a whole is just a very pleasant listen; like a warm bath really! Carey and her team clearly carved a cohesive sound out for her comeback and the tracks are probably her best in about ten years. If ‘The Distance’ is anything to go by, the album will follow suit!
