New Song: Mariah Carey – ‘You’re Mine (Eternal)’

Published: Wednesday 12th Feb 2014 by Sam

The wait is over.

Mariah Carey‘s eagerly anticipated new single ‘You’re Mine (Eternal)’ debuted literally seconds ago.

Produced by hitmaker Rodney ‘Darkchild’ Jerkins, the blazing ballad is the latest song to be lifted from the diva’s 14th studio album (which arrives on May 6th).

After a succession of false starts, is Mimi finally onto a winner? Find out below…

Yes, yes, and yes!

As the age-old adage goes, third time’s a charm. Indeed, after three try’s, the diva supreme has finally served up a single from the album befitting of her name, status, and iconic back-catalogue.

A clear cousin of ‘We Belong Together’ and ‘Don’t Forget About Us’ (from both a lyrical and production standpoint),  the track excels principally because it isn’t a rushed rehash. Instead, it borrows shades of what made those tracks so stellar (see: piano led production, relatable lyrics, and emotive delivery) and garnishes them with a 2014 gloss.

Also, more than anything else we’ve heard from the project thus far, ‘Mine’ serves as the most radio-ready – boasting hooks aplenty.

After making a number of missteps that were “exceedingly hurtful” to the campaign, Mariah has taken a giant stride forward with this. Will it strut to the top of the charts, though? Time will tell. From our vantage point, it certainly deserves to.

Your thoughts?

  3. Erik February 12, 2014

    This is what she’s needed for years!! It’s “don’t forget about us” for 2014!!! After all these years she still got tricks up her sleeve!! Legend!!

  4. Grump February 12, 2014

    I am dying at how amazing the original and remix are. So damn sweet when she whispers. Like she’s talking to me. Amazing song from an amazing artist who crafts nothing but the best.

  5. You’re Mine February 12, 2014

    You’re Mine Is The best love Song in 2014 i enjoying this new track and the remix with trey songz is Superb!

  6. Citrouille February 12, 2014

    The chorus is SUPER hypnotic. I’ll say it’d be a hit if Mariah promoted it probably this time (I mean the live performances).

  7. Still I Rise! February 12, 2014

    Oh, I’m sorry I fell asleep. SNOOZER!!!!!!

  8. black February 12, 2014

    its cute.. cant lie, the ending is great

  9. Niccolò February 12, 2014

    It kinda sounds like Alicia Keys’ Like you’ll never see me again

  10. FutureCiara February 12, 2014



    I’m watching Sarah Jessica Parker right now on Wendy Williams Show.

    I’ll be back after I listen….

  11. Check Your Lipstick Before You Come & Talk To Me February 12, 2014

    I am nowhere close to being a lamb – but this song is pretty hot! At the end of the day, Mariah is a legend and her voice is still pretty great! Ready for the Trey Songz remix as well.

  12. Check Your Lipstick Before You Come & Talk To Me February 12, 2014

    Now what Mariah should focus on is to stop with the ridiculous gowns and being uncomfortable on stage and just let loose and SING without worrying about the way she looks or the staging or whatever. Obviously she doesn’t care what I think but more people would be drawn to her if she just let loose and stopped with the whole over-the-top mess she’s been serving in live performances lately!

  13. QUEEN MARIAH > YOU H** February 12, 2014

    And I just can’t seem to give you up, YOU’RE MIINEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE *hits WHISTLE*



    QUEEN !!!

  14. QUEEN MARIAH > YOU H** February 12, 2014

  15. Ever.Green February 12, 2014


  16. Theman February 12, 2014

    “Beautiful” wasn’t a flop tho.. “TAOLG” wasn’t serviced to radio either.. This song is amazing !!

  17. Stephy Tha Hive Member February 12, 2014

    Dont like that song at all. Its a snooze fest but watever! This song sounds dated & old. Like a B-side to Shake It Off…

    Mariah Carey is over! Im done staning for this woman. Her music is getting worse & worse. She is not trying to do nothing new but the same old tired runs & whisles.

    Im officially apart of the HIVE! I love you Mariah Carey but my love affair with you has come to an end. I will continue to listen to your older albums tho.

    Mariah Carey: 1990
    Emotions: 1991
    Music Box: 1993
    Merry Christmas: 1994
    Daydream: 1995
    Butterfly: 1997
    The Emancipation Of Mimi: 2005

    Are your best albums, you career is legendary & thank you for the best music i’ve ever herd from a woman artist but im done. Beyonce is my home gurl from now on. I will however I will continue to purchase anything you put out including your new album. But I will not stan for a lipping, age-ing diva anymore. Its just not right….

    Beyonce is the new QUEEN of my generation is its about time I started stanning for the QUEEN of MY generation.

    Bye Mariah!

    Ps. This song is cute tho but it will flop with or without payola. She needs to RE-INVENT herself.

  18. TC!! February 12, 2014

    she sang she slayed and she conquered. A+MAZING!

  19. QUEEN MARIAH > YOU H** February 12, 2014





  20. MC!! February 12, 2014

    umm stephy the song sounds great even sam likes it!! go sit in a corner somewhere! and tbh you never were a lamb to begin with people said the same thing about we belong together and dont forget about us and look where those singles went!

  21. QUEEN MARIAH > YOU H** February 12, 2014

    this is yall after hearing the song, admit it :

    www . i786.photobucket . com/albums/yy147/saricoop/other%20gifs/bowdown . gif

  22. Stephy Tha Hive Member February 12, 2014

    Mariah Carey is legendary but she needs to RE-INVENT herself. I hate having to force myself into liking her songs. Ugh… This songs does nothing for me. It does not scream single material but todays standerds of music is so low I guess Def Jam said yes.

    Also, her vocals are boring & nasal sounding !

  23. QUEEN MARIAH > YOU H** February 12, 2014

    And this is Mariah every second of her ICONIC life:

    www . oi25.tinypic . com/b7dg9e . jpg

  24. Stephy Tha Hive Member February 12, 2014

    Dont get mad at me cause im not DELUSIONAL! Mariah’s vocals sounds TIRED ! The songs it dated HELLO its 2014 not 2005.

    This song is outdatted thanks to her working with outdatted producers.. She needs to get back with Walter A but oops she cant sing anymore…

  25. QUEEN MARIAH > YOU H** February 12, 2014

    Oh just shut your annoying fugly mouth already @STEPHY THE LOSER

    While you’re remain disappointed, everyone else IS LOVING and ENJOYING the songs and the QUEEN is back, so fxuck off !

  26. Honeymoon Avenue February 12, 2014

    This version is much better than the remix in my opinion. This is the best single released off the album so far!

  27. cocobutta February 12, 2014

    Now this is our Emancipation Mimi edition.

    Very nice song.
    Sound like a R&B slow burner than a hot 100 song to me though.

    Verses, Bridge & Ending my fav parts

  28. Stephy Tha Hive Member February 12, 2014

    LOL The Lambs betta drag me. I still love Mariah & will always love her but her music as of lately has been blah blah blah RUBISH!

  29. number1k9 February 12, 2014

    I’m at odds, because while it is the kind of music Mariah Carey should be making at this stage in her career and given her early catalog… But I’m currently on a second listen and I’m not moved toward it.

    It’s not bad, but its nothing spectacular either. And it certainly is no “We Belong Together” or “Don’t Forget About Us,” 2014. Ehhh.

    2.5-3 Stars / 5 stars IMO currently

  30. MC!! February 12, 2014

    she already worked with walter for this album. If you’re “lamb” you should know that already! and if you don’t like the song then you just don’t like it, no one’s pointing a gun to your head saying to LIKE IT! Why force yourself to like something? #pathetic you’re a hive member but you’re fellow hive members like the song as well. #shrugs and her voice sounds great(healthy) it would’nt be a mariah carey song without her “whistles” that’s her trademark but she sang in full voice also.

  31. TinaMinaj February 12, 2014

    Hahahahahaha i can’t wait to hear her BUTCHER this song live like a lamb chop!
    And LMAO @ some DELUSIONAL people thinking this will be a top 10 hit. In what universe???

    And personally think that ‘Beautiful’ song with Miguel was much better.

  32. Stephy Tha Hive Member February 12, 2014

    I still respect & love Mariah Carey Lambs. Im just no longer stanning for her.

    She is in desperate need of Re-Invention but I think she might just be going the “Prince” route & not giving a crap about radio anymore. Who knows.

    Also, I herd she was working with Walter A. but knowing Mariah Carey I will believe once I see/hear it.

  33. Common Sense February 12, 2014

    Mediocre at best to be honest. #Beautiful was much better in my opinion. However, unlike a silly child on here, I won’t go onto some random rant about who I obsess or don’t obsess over. No one cares sweetheart.

  34. theroof29 February 12, 2014

    f out of here B wishes she could hit that note at the end. You know you like the song

  35. theroof29 February 12, 2014

    YESSSSSSSSSSSSS the Queen is Back with real vocals I love it

  36. Adrian February 12, 2014

    Yessss Mariah!!!! Let’s go lambs. This era is officially started.

    and just a little note: Triumphant was a no.1 dance hit (and a minor urban hit), #Beautiful hit no.15 on the Hot 100, and Letting Go wasn’t a single. It wasn’t even released to radio.

  37. Adrian February 12, 2014

    @Stephy stay off the drugs boo. It’s not a good look. You sound unstable..

  38. ILOVEJAMESDEAN February 12, 2014

    @Stephy : You will eat your words when this song becomes a huge hit.

  39. Aaron R. February 12, 2014

    Finally!!! I’ve been a loyal lambly member since day one! And if I’m gonna keep it 100 I was bit concerned with Mariah’s single choices recently. It looks like Mariah and Jermaine finally got it right. Again! It’s certainly not a “We Belong Together” comeback single but what it does have is the potential to gain radio play and chart success. Smart move by Mariah and her team to release this song for the lovers right before Valentines day too. I say she enters with a top 40 debut at least!

  40. dee February 12, 2014

    Agreed…It does sound a little dusty.

  41. Stephy February 12, 2014

    I am not on drugs! Im just simply state-ting my opinion on Mariah’s new music.

    This song is un-inspiring & boring.

    You can’t go from master-pieces time-less classics like “Fantasy”, “One Sweet Day”, “All I Want For Christmas Is You”, “Can’t Let Go” & “We Belong Together” too stuff like “Touch My Body” & “Obsessed”.

    Mariah Carey’s music is getting worse & worse. Its the honest truth. Also, her smooth sultry tone is now a training whispery mess.

    She needs to gain warmth & heavy-ness back into her tone. I mean how can the same artist do mediocore FLASE lead singles/songs like “Beautiful” & “Triumphant” & “You’re Mine” but has songs in her catalogue that weren’t even singles SLAY all her single releases in the past 7 years like this song…

  42. FutureCIARA February 12, 2014

    Its cute I guess….

    Im more stunned at her Flip Floppy ass stans on here!


  43. Todd February 12, 2014

    Love the song! Fingaz crossed it smashes! Love u Mimi!

  44. WHATAMESS! February 12, 2014

    Diz s*** is boring. She had better lead singles than this s*** right here but for some reason this b**** still think its 2005. Do she know wats on top of billboard right now..

  45. Davis February 12, 2014


  46. Realest February 12, 2014

    That stephy child is f**kin weird yo. I really hope he’s a highschooler because that’s how he sounds- young and dumb. Lol. This is a dope track- go Mimi!

  47. Vee February 12, 2014

    I like Stephys honesty tbh

  48. S****** Blonde February 12, 2014

    It’s the same type of songs she’s been doing since 2005, in all honestly, i prefer ‘Beautiful’ even if i dislike that Prince wannabe, it will probably do well on the charts, the United States loves R&B, if only Indie/Alternative/Baroque Pop music could be loved here too, most Americans are basic listeners.

  49. Jayla February 12, 2014

    What is it that fem gays have against slow music? U think mariah gives a f*** about what’s on too of the charts right now? Y’all sound so ignorant. If it isn’t something danceable that u silly MEN can do choreo to u don’t like it… Shut the hell up miserable souls

  50. elihkyh February 12, 2014

    I must say I like the live and the remix this is not what i thought it would be Mariah what the hell are u doing this is not it there was only one other time in her career that i felt like this it was the rainbow cd the only cd that i thow in the trast mariah come on I beleive my ears u are now proving the hater right if this is a hit the world is about to end it lets me know how bad music has really gotten……..but i will always love and support u………..

  51. h2o February 12, 2014

    it’s not bad but why can’t understand that it’s not 1990 anymore…..

  52. EMPRESS WHITNEY February 12, 2014

    I like it.

    #Beautiful is still, in my opinion, her Greatest song of the past 7 years or so and this is an excellent follow-up (although I prefer ‘The Art of Letting Go’).

    That seamless, Belt-to-Whistle Transition at the end was incredible – in Popular music, only Mariah is capable of executing such difficult fioratura passages & octave jumps of that calibre.

    I hope this era goes well for her; I’m looking forward to buying her album. 😉

  53. ENOUGH ONIKA (NEW & IMPROVED) February 12, 2014

    I’m sorry but this is boring to me….

  54. BEYONCÉ February 12, 2014

    Sounds like something she’s already released 20 times. I’m sure this will be payola’d to death and I’ll be FORCED to like it, but so far it’s very stale and dated.

  55. Skyfall February 12, 2014

    Yassd b****, love it. I just wish she worked with someone else on
    The remix other than trey but they sound nice as well.

  56. mariah>>>>>>>>>>>trashdonna February 12, 2014

    i love mariah

  57. Stop The Hate February 12, 2014

    Love the song not here for the remix (not a fan of auto tune). For those saying it sounds dated, well, you all do know that Mariah Carey has a signature sound, right? No one sounds like her, makes a song like her and when people do they automatically get compared to her. This is a good song. Is it epic? no, but why look for epic when you can just enjoy good quality music. People, I think you all expect too much from music artist. Put more energy into your own passions. AND
    I can’t at the flip flop in here. I mean have your opinion, but what makes you pressed is the repetitive negativity. Up on a post stomping around like somebody stole your bike. How you gonna say “don’t like this song at all….. p.s. this song is cute though” WTF?????????? your comments after that one are meaningless.

  58. Jewel February 12, 2014


  59. Bree February 12, 2014


  60. Bey Fan February 12, 2014

    Ok Mariah…. i can dig it

  61. Theezyknows February 12, 2014


    Isn’t this the fourth time thought?

    Triumphant, Beautiful, The art of letting go…..

    Anyway, this is EXACTLY what the dr ordered. Deff top 10 material and the trey additional helps for appeal

    Check out my blog:

  62. Adam Monster February 12, 2014

    This won’t do well at all. NO ONE is into this sound anymore, it’s boring and dated. This ain’t the Hiphop/Bush years anymore.

  63. Toto February 12, 2014

    I am loving this song !!!!

  64. HYBRID THEORY February 12, 2014

    GO MIMI!

  65. jaiyah February 12, 2014

    I agree, Mimi needs to go back to her signature jeans and ditch those gowns and get more comfortable on the stage.

  66. SageLinear February 12, 2014

    I hear another “Triumphant”. She needs to call up Tommy M. and Walter A. and pay them whatever they want to steer her career back to where it was. She’s like an engine up on blocks today.

  67. Lovebird February 12, 2014

    Trying to re-create we belong together I see.

    Yet another forgettable song from this era.

    This will FLOP so hard.

  68. xedos February 12, 2014

    This too shall flop nothing to write home about.

  69. Music Stan (y’all know who I Stan 4) February 12, 2014

    On a scale of 1-10 I give this song about an 8.5 leaning more towards a 9 I like the song kinda remind if her late 90’s hits just feel like I couldn’t make out the chorus cause it was a little low but I like it

  70. Lovebird February 12, 2014

    She is so going to butcher this live; I cannot wait for that comedy of errors and flat notes.

  71. The Boy Toy February 12, 2014

    This would’ve SMASHED in 2005.

  72. Bey Fan February 12, 2014

    I do miss the “Daydream” Mariah… her vocals were so smooth. But I think this will do as well as Beautiful.

    I dont think this is her “comeback” hit. But definitely its worth a few spins.

  73. Brutally Honest February 12, 2014


  74. The Boy Toy February 12, 2014

    I miss the 90s Mariah too. She didn’t seem as annoying in her earlier days and her music was much better. *plays Emotions*

  75. Theman February 12, 2014

    Some people are idiots. This sounds nothing like “WBT”. It has different elements to it.. It has great elements to it it..

  76. JOHNVIDAL February 12, 2014

    I like it, good song and good vocals.
    I´m among the few who prefer #beautiful though. “You´re mine” has better vocals, but beautiful is a better song, more innovative for her and more radio-friendly. Obviously, she´s not trying to top the hot 100 cos only pop songs top it now. She has said a million times her goal this era is to release a great body of work, and I´m sure the album will be great, so I´m more than ok.

  77. JOHNVIDAL February 12, 2014

    Only a question: how should Mariah work with new producers and not release R&B songs which sound dated in your opinion… but still should work with Walter A. 20 years later???? They made great music together, but do you really think anything produced by that man would be a hit in 2014?????????? If producers who were hot 5 years ago can´t get a hit anymore, what makes you think Walter could bring something great at this point? Nobody releases that music anymore. I agree to an extent Mariah should reinvent her sound a little bit more, like it kind of happened with #beautiful, but it stops there. Is anybody else from the 90s getting hits effortlessly in 2014 or something? NO nobody. Mariah is doing fine, you can´t expect her to be the same or as good as 20 years ago. She still makes great music and loves it with a passion, she clearly loves R&B the most.

  78. Hater February 12, 2014

    Im not a Mariah Fan but after a few spin this song make me fell in love so hard the hook is crazy it keep on singing in my head seriously this song can be a major hit we never had a good love song for the past few years i meam Mariah Is the only one who can bring back the love song back that we fell in love from the beginning of her career congrats mariah and happy valentines day

  79. Young February 12, 2014

    It doesn’t matter if go to the top or not.

    This is a good track that’s all

  80. ROSEGOLD February 12, 2014

    It’s kinda boring tbh……

  81. JOHNVIDAL February 12, 2014

    I agree. It´s nothing like We Belong Together. Also, Sam´s opinion and comparisons are so random, like he can´t focus or something.

  82. anonymous February 12, 2014

    Love it. Cant wait to see the video.

  83. ok February 12, 2014

    it’s ok but i stay in love is way better and it was slept on

  84. Theman February 12, 2014

    Also the main singles chart has opened up a little more recently. It isn’t just one sound that tops the chart. Pop is playing a few more urban songs, & urban songs are doing better than they were at first. So this can do great..

  85. MC!!! February 12, 2014

    this s*** went from 63 to 47 in minutes! #climbmimi #golambs

  86. DIGGER BEY February 12, 2014

    I like it. Its a great spring time riding along song. Its definitely reminiscenting to WBT.

  87. LAMB February 12, 2014


  88. Mark111 February 12, 2014

    Yawn. Boring as f***! Lol, this is it lambs? This is what the LAMES been “yassss”ing about? 4th flopped 1st Single.

  89. GR February 12, 2014

    I am the biggest lamb, but I am disappointed. This is a critical point in her career- even more so than after the Glitter disaster (at least the CD was good, even if the movie flopped). At this point (especially after the underperforming Memoirs), this new album should sound like a greatest hits CD- every song should be on fire. What gets me is that Mariah is finally getting recognized as a songwriter (although the fact that this didn’t happen before was partially her fault, with all her diva antics and eccentricities), and she comes out with the weakest songs of her career. Tommy and Walter A were right- they were trying to keep her from ruining her voice (why are singers over 60 still vocally slaying and Mariah can’t sing without lipping?), her legacy (an artist of her stature deserves better material), and her career. Mariah needs to reinvest herself- starting by using outside songwriters and begging Tommy to salvage her career. Time to wake up, lambs- Mariah needs to change everything

  90. Rob February 12, 2014

    I love it. It’s a great song, classic Mariah, but modern enough and easily can fit into radio formats. If she continues to promote and gives great performances and dresses halway appropriately for the video it will go platinum like #Beautiful. Lambs – support, request, purchase and wake up and do your duties for our QUEEN!

  91. XYZ February 12, 2014

    beautiful was no flop…them other two singles, you’re right. those were flops. but whatever.

    in which place is a ciara fan to call out somebody for SINGLE flops when Ciara flops for a longer time than she ever was succesfull? Ciara is flopping on the SINGLES and ALBUM front. So you better be quiet and appreciate the legends

  92. Kimbella February 12, 2014

    Damn Stephy is really a fake hypocrite.

  93. Kimbella February 12, 2014

    i have no respect for people like @Stephy who just abandon their fav because their not doing as good as before.

  94. Lover of good music February 12, 2014

    Mariah’s team needs to follow MJB’s. She’s cementing her legacy at this point. She isn’t prancing around half naked singing generic, cheesy pop tunes. She just performed for the POTUS and the president of France, performed at the Nobel Peace Concert and sold 500k copies of her Christmas album past her prime. I feel like people don’t honor or respect Mariah’s legacy like they should and it’s her fault. She shouldn’t be trying to compete with the young girls anymore. F*** them.

  95. slay_hive February 12, 2014

    Sounds like I’ve heard this from her before. It’s ok. Sounds like she’s chasing for a “WBT” type of hit. Maybe it will work, maybe not.

    Overall she just puts me to sleep. 🙁

  96. §←↑→§ February 12, 2014

    It’s alright nothing special. It just sounds like another song. She can’t sing it live anyway.

  97. Navy Nick February 12, 2014

    It def is hte cousin of WBT/DFU, BUT hey, if it aint broke, dont fix it…I LIKE IT, A LOT (that trey mix tho-MESS) he is a mess, she should have gotten with Drake, or anyone but him….this is nice tho!!!

  98. Scarpino February 12, 2014

    FLOP it’ll be demoted to a “buzz single”

  99. Anne February 12, 2014

    Overall I don’t like it but maybe it will grow on me. I don’t like the way she sings the chorus, too breathy imo. Also the lyrics are very ‘typical love song’ type. Don’t see how this can be compared to ‘We Belong Together’ which had better lyrics, vocals, and melody.

  100. Oinkriah Carey (Pork De Force) February 12, 2014

    she’s gonna flop harder then Gaga. biggest flop of the year ugly box body b****….

  101. dark horse February 12, 2014

    The song is so LUKE WARM its giving me album filler tease.

  102. James February 12, 2014

    This song does absolutely nothing for me. It sucks, she sucks, and I used to be the biggest Mariah fan but am not anymore.

  103. ABC February 12, 2014

    Snoozefest. How many times is she gonna create the same song?

  104. FAF February 12, 2014

    @ABC I think u post some stupid s*** half the time but this time, I agree

    Why are they using autotune?

    There’s no bass & unless she pays clearchannel, noone’s gonna play this s***

  105. FAF February 12, 2014

    @XYZ a REAL R&B SINGLE BEING CERTIFIED GOT U MAD, HUN? CIARA DONT NEED CLEAR CHANNEL TO GET RIAA CERTIFICATIONS thats for damn sure & she dont have delusions of grandeur while looking like spongebob square pants on the red carpet



  106. JER February 12, 2014

    Hmmmmm sounds like an E=MC2 leftover. The vocals are on point, but the song itself is a little busy at times and doesn’t do anything for me.

    I do accept as true with all of the concepts you have offered

    subsequent time? Thanks for the post.
