Mariah Carey - You're Mine (Eternal)

After several false starts with a couple of singles that didn't perform as expected, the official lead single from her new album due out this May has been released. It is cut from the same sensual cloth as 2008's "Touch My Body", but it isn't quite as commercial. This one has multiple hooks and other sections versus the traditional verses and choruses. The slow groove of the song is really hot.

There is an alternate remix which features additional vocals by Trey Songz. His heavily auto tuned vocals do not mesh well with Mariah's soft, delicate ones, but his backing vocals during the verse do.

Dance mixes by Jump Smokers and Kurd Maverick have also been released. The Jump Smokers remix uses just a handful of the vocals, selecting just some bits of the climax which makes the mix feel incomplete as there is nothing leading to those vocals. It's very sloppy. Sadly, the Kurd Maverick mix uses even less vocals. It's puzzling that both remixers chose to omit the stellar vocals as they did.
