New Song: Mariah Carey – ‘Infamous’

Singer’s ‘Empire’ Song Has Arrived

Mariah Carey is gearing up to flex her acting muscles on season 3 of FOX hit ‘Empire.’

The premium diva plays the role of Kitty, a glamorous singer who stops by the Lyon label to collaborate with middle son Jamal.

Carey’s guest stint, like most on the show, comes with an original song. ‘Infamous’ is the title of hers and is a collaboration with Jussie Smollett (who plays Jamal).

Produced by Jermaine Dupri and Bryan-Michael Cox, the track has arrived a day early.

Take a listen below…

Pleasant.

Clearly spun from the same cloth as ‘We Belong Together’ and pretty much most post-oo’s pairings of Mimi and JD, ‘Infamous’ makes for an enjoyable listen.

We’d have preferred to hear something sonically fresh from Mariah, but hopefully that’s coming with her new album.

Your thoughts?

        Miley is right! She’s 100% spot on. When Mariah first came on the scene in 1990 it was all about the music and I loved her songs. A few years later, after the Daydream album and going through her divorce she started buying into her own press and became an over-the-top narcissistic diva and I lost interest. 😩

        Lower case JohnVidal (not to be confused with JOHNVIDAL), Mariah KNEW that after her high profile marital dispute, she HAD to be more real and honest…even Adele started showing her real personality and enduring potty mouth (lol) after the huge success of 21…Whitney KNEW she HAD to show her true personality after the black community (and to this day, it boggles my mind WHY) thought she was selling out somehow…you can only have so many big albums before the public wants to know more…I’m not knocking your opinion about favoring the mystery tho…and Moosey Citrus was wrong for what she said! Miley just mad she’s not THE BEST ‘MC’ lol

      She actually gets really nervous when singing at award shows. But when she knows she’s surrounded by fans she is comfortable and gives a stronger performance. She’s human at the end of the day.

    Its a good song for Empire but i hope its not a reflection on the content of the album as i feel musically she needs to move on from the same producers and the same sound for her next project.
    I think she should work with Robert Gasper, The Roots, Harmony Samuels, Emile Sande, Baby face

        Even if you combine “Me I Am Mariah” and “Unbreakable” first week sales it wouldn’t outsell Rebel Heart’s 1st week!

      Mariah Carey’s last two studio albums from the 90’s failed to outsell Madge’s Ray of Light.

    Mariah used to be able to craft and recognize a hit. This song percolates, but it doesn’t boil. When it started off, I thought it might go in a Closer (Chainsmokers) direction, but not really, though that actually would have been a good direction for a new single from her.

    No insults here.The song is NOT good. She sounds as if she isn’t even trying. The auto tune is terrible (him)…over all the song doesn’t go anywhere, its boring and sounds generic. It sucks this kind of stuff is green-lit. If I were her label head, id say “NO”.

    Love her! This is just an “irrelevant” song for this show. I hope she creates something a little bit new for her next album. She could still be doing amazing music if she changed the people she works with from time to time. Like when she did it for her Xmas album from 2010, which yes, was amazing. If she doesn´t do it we´ll be ok too cause she has earned it, she can keep doing whatever she wants to. I would prefer a change though.

      I agree. But her last album was amazing yet it got little promotion. I think what they are doing is getting pre-promotion before her album comes out so people can actually hear it. I didnt think it was bad but I felt like they shouldve focused on Jussie’s and Mariah’s voices, meaning without the autotune lol.

    I am convinced that all of the hatred on this is just jealous stans of other irrelevant artists. Regardless, I love the song. Its not her best but it shows her potential for the new album!
