Why? Mariah Carey Teases ‘Infinity’ Remix

Published: Wednesday 5th Aug 2015 by Sam

We love us some Mariah Carey here at That Grape Juice, but oh does she confuse us at times.

Factually speaking, the diva is enjoying success on the Las Vegas strip with her current Colosseum residency. However, the song released to promote it, ‘Infinity,’ came and went like a thief in the night – failing to steal a high spot on the Billboard Hot 100 in the process.

And yet still, the 45-year-old is attempting to resuscitate with a remix.

Taking to Instagram this AM, Mimi shared clips of herself in the studio with French Montana and DJ SUSS One cooking up a revised version of the lukewarmly received cut.

Check it out below…

Sigh.

When will Mariah understand that her practice of throwing a mid-card rapper on a track and hoping for the best just isn’t cutting it anymore?

What’s more, in an era dominated by 15 sec Snapchats, 140 characters  on Twitter, and even shorter attention spans, why is she releasing a remix to a song that dropped in way back May?

We’re going to need Mimi to get it together, pronto.

Your thoughts?

    Ya’ll are tired and redundant, how about one week where Mariah, Beyoncé or Rhianna are not mentioned. You report on trashy ratchet TV shows and call it journalism. PerezHilton 2.0

    • ThatBitchYouDontWantToFuckWith August 5, 2015

      Are you mad that they didn’t promote your flop blog f*****?

    “Failing to steal a spot on the Hot 100 in the process”-LIES,the song actually charted on the Hot 100

    “We love us some Mariah Carey here at That Grape Juice”-MORE LIES

    personally,i’m not here for this remix.I thought and expected a new song but this site giving her career advice is irony on another level

    • Jake August 5, 2015

      WAIT. The original was HORRIBLE and I couldn’t pinpoint why, but um, this sounds like an actual HIT! This came out of left field, but that production…woo lord…that is meant for radio and the clubs. She finally has a single that sounds current. The last one was what, Obsessed? It’s been too long.

  3. Dossome August 5, 2015

    95% of the acts this site has interviewed are either “mid-card” or eternal up-comers,so again,Irony on another level

    Yasss TGJ DRAG her

    • OMG Logic!!! August 5, 2015

      TGJ isn’t dragging anyone but themselves with their constant lack of fact checking.

  5. MUSICHEAD August 5, 2015

    I don’t think it matters how long ago the original single dropped. What does matter is how good the remix actually turns out to be. We all know Mariah usually does well with remixes…she is the Queen of remixes. Hopefully this Infinity remix is single worthy because it definitely needed some fixing.

    • Jake August 5, 2015

      It sounds like a mix between “Dark Horse” and “My Way.” I am genuinely impressed that she’s finally back on her game. I hope it drops soon.

  6. justarymes August 5, 2015

    Um….Infinity did land in the Hot 100…whatever happened to BASIC RESEARCH PEOPLE AJA TGJ

    • cuss August 5, 2015

      the bottom of the chart doesn’t count sis

  7. Paulo August 5, 2015

    skipping past the shade, at this day and age it is kinda hopeless to pull a remix 3 months after the release of a single. is it gonna revive the song on airplay? I dunno… but if the song is hot, then the song is hot so… I bet her fans will be happy 🙂

  8. Ozzy August 5, 2015

    She is probably doing it to shore up some hype for future concert dates. No big deal, I don’t think she’s trying to resuscitate the era.

  9. BEYHIVE_MINAJ August 5, 2015

    I like the song but I don’t think a remix is necessary. And does TGJ spend every waking minute thinking of new ways to criticize Mariah? Because it’s just redundant and stale at this point.

  10. Al August 5, 2015

    This site makes me cringe!
    Sam and his fhags reports on Rita as she is the best thing since sliced bread along with Tin man and Aston Flopgold. Its been very poor infact awful here for weeks. Is it confirmed as a remix single?! This is as dry as Sams prolapse ass get it together #lastweeks news

    • Walker August 5, 2015

      Yet you’re here. You must enjoy being upset.

      • Al August 5, 2015

        Who asked you to reply on my post?! #walking spermbank

  11. BEYHIVE_MINAJ August 5, 2015

    And why is it such a big deal that she is working with “mid card” rappers? This woman is 25 years into her career with 200 million records sold worldwide. She can work with whoever she pleases. She doesn’t need to prove anything to anyone.

  12. OMG Logic!!! August 5, 2015

    I know it’s difficult for the writers of this blog to understand, given the fact that they stan for nothing but Titanic-level flops, but Mariah loves remixing her music. She loves being in the studio period. It isn’t something new, she has always and will probably always continue to work on remixes as long as she is releasing music.

  13. SCALPING THOTS August 5, 2015

    YOU PEOPLE ON THIS BLOG ARE SUCH HYPOCRITES. IF THIS WAS RIHANNA OR BEYONCE IT WOULD BE A WASTE, BUT THIS DRIED UP ALCOHOLIC CAN DROP A REMIX OF A SONG THAT CAME OUT 100 YEARS AGO AND YA’LL TALK ABOUT IT MIGHT BE CUTE. CHILLLLLLLLE. NO MATTER HOW MANY TIMES SHE CHASES AFTER A HIT & RELEASE FLOPS THESE LAMBS ALWAYS FIND EXCUSES. JANET & MADONNA OR EVEN CELINE WOULDN’T GET A PASS ON THIS, SO WHY YA’LL KEEP HAVING SO MUCH PITY FOR THIS WOMAN. STOP WITH THE CHARITY.

    • DOSSOME August 5, 2015

      YOU BLOODY FOOL!!!She’s working with French Montana (a “midcard” act) for a remix of a song that “died” months ago..How is that chasing hits?Take your frustrations and your dry skull elsewhere

  14. Essa August 5, 2015

    Doesn’t matter if “Infinity” barely nixed the bottom rung of the Hot 100 for a week or so, it still flopped. Remixes are promo tools meant to add or extend life to music, but seeing as this song is dead, this is just sad wishful thinking on her end. Can’t believe this 75 year old woman still thinks wearing miniskirts in pictures with rappers will compel people to buy into what she’s doing. Mariah needs to retire. No one cares anymore. The milk is spoiled.

    • DOSSOME August 5, 2015

      K,let go of the stool you’re standing on now,the noose is tight enough

  15. Beyoncé Giselle-Knowles Carter (Formerly RihNavy) August 5, 2015

    I’m baaaaackkkkk 😀

  18. CSQUADREPRESENTER August 5, 2015

    Who?

  19. Theman August 5, 2015

    She just threw this remix out there just because. Secondly, the song definitely landed inside of the hot100. This site is pathetic lol. It’s not that big a deal. Stop trying to slander this ICONIC LEGEND. He was an odd choice though & she could fall back from the rent a rapper category lol..

  20. Cough Cough August 5, 2015

    She’s staying active, making music and keeping her creative juices flowing. That’s all that matters. She’s on a level that she can do whatever the fûück she wants because tbh not too many girls that came out when she did, have the luxury of making remixes to any songs at all because they’re not still around. Your journalism is not the strongest.

  21. #TeamTinashe Stan August 5, 2015

    I absolutely HATE this song! I wanna rip my ears out every time I hear it (which was only 3 times).

    I just thought of a great idea for Mariah Carey. She needs to collaborate with Migos and Future. She did a great job with ODB during that time but this day and age this collab would be SOLID with the right song.

  22. #TeamTinashe Stan August 5, 2015

    I do notice nowadays that TGJ rants on Mariah Carey everyday like Wilbert Williams does on his show.

  23. Beyoncé Giselle-Knowles Carter (Formerly RihNavy) August 5, 2015

    @What Now/Elusive/Keri STFU! Have you recovered from your loss of a baby at the age on 19? You still taking estrogen to make your voice sound more manly? I know you’re transitioning. Word of advice, get a voice coach and laser hair removal first.

  24. Beyoncé Giselle-Knowles Carter (Formerly RihNavy) August 5, 2015

    Also, MEGA-KIIIII at y’all thinking I was ever banned ????! I typed that in my own reply box to make it seem like I was being moderates and you dirty diick ass, fatherless, ass hoessss fell for it.

    I’ve now successfully trolled as several people and have the biggest impact on this site. Y’all will NEVER clock me.

  25. @JanetCIARA_ August 5, 2015

    Oh Lordt….. Not trying to resurrect this Number….

  26. Something New day Resolutionliya Part August 6, 2015

    she always had a remix to her song

  27. Miguel Harary September 3, 2015

    Mariah was so flattered by Justin rocking up that she invited him to put down vocals on what we now know was this Infinity remix. The audio is far from clear, and there s a lot of background noise.
