"Infinity" reviews

Huffington Post:
Mariah Carey Releases 'Infinity,' Which Is Basically A '90s Break-up Ballad

Mariah Carey's greatest hits album, "Mariah Carey #1 To Infinity," will feature only one new track
and it debuted Sunday night on iTunes, Spotify and YouTube. Titled "Infinity," it's a (somewhat cheesy) break-up ballad, featuring Carey's signature breathy vocals and super high notes.

The album, and this track, is part of a reunion collaboration between Carey and Epic CEO L.A. Reid, who produced her best-selling album "The Emancipation of Mimi," and the campaign to promote her#1 to Infinity show at Las Vegas' Caesars Palace. "Infinity" -- and its accompanying lyric video -- is a little hokey, but it's a total reminder of Carey's '90s-era glitter-heavy star power. Bonus: there are butterflies.

Mariah Carey Releases New Single, ‘Infinity’

Mariah Carey is preparing to give music fans a reminder of her longevity with a forthcoming greatest hits album, Infinity. Reunited with L.A. Reid at Epic Records, MC’s first order of business is to showcase 18 of her biggest hits.

Due on May 18th, the diva is also packaging some new music on the album for her day 1 fans. On the self-produced title track, Mariah effortlessly rides the melody in her sweet spot.

Mariah Carey Bemoans the End of ‘Infinity’ on New Single
The ballad will serve as the one new track on upcoming compilation 'Number 1 to Infinity'

In May, pop legend Mariah Carey will release Number 1 to Infinity, a compilation collecting all 18 of her Billboard Hot 100-topping chart hits — a tally that leaves her tied with Elvis Presley for second-most of all-time among artists, by the way, behind only the Beatles — to coincide with the beginning of her residency at the Coliseum at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas. To round out and promote the collection, Carey has released the Obligatory New Track from the set: “Infinity,” a sweeping ballad that starts with an orchestral intro of Just Blaze-sized bombast and ends with a trademark Mariah whistle-register high note. In between, the diva laments a relationship’s end with breathy resignation: “Close the door, lose the key / Leave my heart on the mat for me / I was yours eternally / There’s an end to infinity.” (Fans will no doubt prognosticate about the song’s true-to-lifeness concerning MC’s own recently dissolved marriage to husband of six years Nick Cannon.)
It’s not too likely to end up as Mariah’s 19th Hot 100-topper, but it’s a torch song that’s stadium-sized in both sound and emotion, the likes of which no one pulls off quite like the Elusive Chanteuse.

Mariah Carey Just Released A Goosebump-Worthy Breakup Hit
Following her split with Nick Cannon, Carey tells us that 'there's an end to infinity.'

Mariah Carey’s new song, “Infinity,” is a swelling orchestral R&B jam that manages to work in a Fritos reference.
If that doesn’t make you interested, listen to the lyrics, which are undoubtedly about getting over a breakup. The chorus will break your heart as she professes that everything has an end — even infinity.

“Close the door, lose the key, leave my heart on the mat for me,” Carey sings on the track, released Monday (April 27). “I was yours eternally, there’s an end to infinity.” She sings the word “infinity” with a descending vocal run, letting it tumble down as if it were following her relationship with estranged husband Nick Cannon.
After being married since 2008, Cannon filed for divorce from Carey in December. The two have been playing out their marriage drama in the public eye as they continue to co-parent their children, Moroccan and Monroe. Carey sings that that it’s not as happy as it seems though.

“Ain’t no being friends/ Ain’t no false pretense/ Ain’t no make amends/ Ain’t no come agains/ That’s the story, ain’t no happy ends.”

“Infinity” is the only new track off her greatest hits album, Mariah Carey #1 To Infinity, which will be released on May 18. The diva is also opening her Vegas residency on May 6.

Mariah Carey Releases Power Ballad ‘Infinity’
All rise for Mimi! The pop icon has just released a new song for ‘Infinity’ and it’ll have you feeling all kinds of empowered– an immediate must listen!
Bow down to the queen! Mariah Carey is set to release an entire album of her number 1 Billboard songs– ya know, because she has had an incredible 18 of them! Along with all of her greatest hits, the album titled Mariah Carey #1 To Infinity also features a brand new song, titled simply Infinity. The track was released on Apr. 27 ahead of the full album release on May 18. In other words, what are you still doing here? Listen to the amazing new song right now!

Show ’em how it’s done Mariah.

In her brand new song Infinity, Mimi is totally returning to her roots, complete with throwback lyrics and the powerhouse vocals which made the superstar just that.

A sample: “Outta amo/Gotta reload. If life was a game/You’re a free-throw.” Classic.

Mariah Carey, Legend
Mariah Carey #1 To Infinity reunites Mariah with Epic chairman and CEO Antona “L.A.” Reid, who previously worked with the songstress on her 2005 comeback album The Emancipation of Mimi. In a statement, Antona expressed how excited he was to be working with the legend once again. “I couldn’t be more thrilled to be back together again with Mariah. There is really no one who comes close to Mariah as both a songwriter and a singer, and as the world knows, her vocal range is legendary and truly incomparable.”

We couldn’t agree more!

Prior to the album’s official release, Mariah will begin a string of performances as part of a residency in Las Vegas’s Caesars Palace. Beginning on May 6, Mariah will perform a confirmed 18 performances, running through May 26.

Hear Mariah Carey's Sassy New Break-up Anthem 'Infinity'

For Mariah Carey, revenge is a dish best served in a 90's-tinged heartbreak anthem.

Carey premiered her new song "Infinity" and its lyric video on April 26. The throwback-flavored track is a soaring break-up track, complete with sassy lines that shut down the guy she's singing about. They are the kind of lyrics that might have speculate that the track is about her recent split from Nick Cannon. Or perhaps it's just Carey returning to form as the queen of post-heartbreak empowerment.

"Close the door/ Lose the key/ Leave my heart on the mat for me," she declares on the chorus. "I was your eternally/ There's an end to infinity."

But the chorus is almost sweet compared to some of lines she slings at other points on the track, including "Name hold weight like kilos/ Boy you actin' so corny like Fritos/ Wouldn't have none of that without me, though/ Ain't none of my business, it's tea though/ Outta ammo, gotta reload/ If life was a game you're a free throw/ It's nothing that you don't already know."

"Infinity" is featured on her upcoming Mariah Carey #1 To Infinity release due out on May 18 on Epic Records/ Columbia Records/Sony Legacy.

Entertainment Weekly:
Mariah Carey's new single 'Infinity' is the '90s throwback we've been waiting for

Mariah Carey released “Infinity” on Sunday, the new single off her forthcoming greatest hits compilation, Mariah Carey #1 To Infinity.

“Close the door, lose the key, leave my heart on the mat for me,” Carey belts on the track, which is also available through iTunes and Spotify. “I was yours eternally. There’s an end to infinity.”

Set for release on May 18 via Epic Records and Columbia Records/Sony Legacy, Mariah Carey #1 to Infinity reunites Carey with Antonio “L.A.” Reid, who helped reinvigorate the singer’s career with 2005’s The Emancipation of Mimi. The new record will tally up Carey’s 18 No. 1 Billboard hits, meaning songs such as “Always Be My Baby” and “Heartbreaker” feature prominently. (Carey’s fond of the #1 to Infinity moniker: it’s also the name of her Las Vegas residency, which stars on May 6.)

A video for “Infinity” is due soon from director Brett Ratner.
Mariah Carey Returns to ’90s Roots with Breakup Anthem ‘Infinity'

Mariah Carey is all cried out and she’s ready for you to just leave your key and get out.
For her own take on the breakup anthem, she’s taking a BeyoncĂ© to the left, to the left approach and asking her ex to leave it all behind. And that means everything.
“Close the door/Lose the key/ Leave my heart on the mat for me,” she sings. “I was yours eternally/There’s an end to infinity.”

The only new track on her greatest hits album Mariah Carey #1 To Infinity, out May 18, has her making it clear she isn’t interested in being friends or making amends, singing, “Ain’t no happy ends.” Um, got that, Nick Cannon?
It also has her hitting all the right notes, something she’s been having a bit of trouble with lately. We recommend you stay to the end so you can hear Mariah hit a note that dogs can only hear—you know, like those good ol’ “Always Be My Baby” days—and then get all giggly about it.
The track is now available on iTunes, and plan to see a video from her pal director Brett Ratner very soon.
Carey is gearing up for her Las Vegas residency, which she announced earlier this year

The diva's back: A new Mariah Carey song, "Infinity," is ready to storm the charts to No. 1 and beyond. The '90s-flavored breakup anthem will easily suggest to fans she's singing about her ex-husband Nick Cannon, with some curious lyrics like "boy you actin' so corny like Fritos." The chorus, though, is radio ready: "Close the door, lose the key, leave my heart on the mat for me, I was your eternally, There's an end to infinity." Carey's latest greatest hits collection, "#1 to Infinity," hits stores May 18.

Mariah Carey’s ‘Infinity’ Takes Us Back to the ’90s

Mariah Carey has had a rough time lately: She was struggling in concert, filed for divorce from her husband Nick Cannon in January, and has to fend off comparisons from these little whippersnappers. So why not remember the good times — i.e., the '90s? Enter "Infinity," the (only) new track off her compilation album, #1 to Infinity, which has all 18 of her No. 1 singles, plus this single. It's a throwback in the best way: empowering lyrics, soaring vocals, and a chorus with multisyllabic words (and French!) that you can mangle at karaoke. Take that, Nick Cannon!

"Boy you actin' so corny like Fritos."

Mariah Carey, queen vocalist and car karaoke participant, just dropped a new single, "Infinity," and it's a wonderfully nostalgic breakup anthem. The song has a throwback '90s vibe—upbeat tempo, a dramatic chorus establishing the relationship is done ("Close the door/lose the key/leave my heart on the mat for me/I was yours eternally/There's an end to infinity"), and lots of hilarious insults include "Boy you actin' so corny like Fritos" and "if life was a game, you're a free throw". Welcome back, Mariah.


Mariah Carey‘s “Infinity” lyric video may look like a cheesy Disney commercial (and like it was put together in PowerPoint), but the song itself is on its way to becoming a classic Mariah heartbreak hit.
Outfitted with a sparkly purple background (so Mariah), the lyric video is fun, playful and a little silly (cue images of a heart splattering on a welcome mat) — but it’s also the perfect vehicle to showcase her beyond-impressive range, especially after the not-so-flattering criticism she received for not being able to sing live. (Spoiler alert: She sounds amazing now.) Not to mention, we all know how much the Elusive Chanteuse shines on a good heartbreak tune.
“Close the door / Lose the key / Leave my heart on the mat for me,” Mariah belts out on the chorus. “I was yours, eternally / There’s an end to infinity.” Depressing AF, yes, but that’s the best part of breakup songs: They’re insanely relatable and the kind of jams you just want to sing alone in your room while simultaneously sobbing and stuffing your face with Ben & Jerry’s.
“Infinity,” produced by Mimi herself, may not pack as much of a punch as “Always Be My Baby” or “We Belong Together,” but it certainly contains heart-wrenching enough lyrics to hit you right in the heart — especially when Mariah lets loose with that acrobatic voice of hers. And maybe, just maybe, it provides some insight on the ending of her marriage to Nick Cannon, who has been nothing but supportive of his ex and her new music.
“Infinity” is Mariah’s newest release and the brand-new track off of her upcoming greatest hits album, Mariah Carey #1 to Infinity, which drops on May 18. Ready, Lambs?

Publicist parts ways with Mariah Carey

Power publicist Cindi Berger has parted ways with Mariah Carey after more than 15 years, sources
exclusively told Page Six, before the singer embarks on her Las Vegas residency next month. When reached for comment, Berger confirmed that she's no longer working with Carey and said, "I have enormous respect for Mariah. She is one of the great talents and voices of our time, and I wish her nothing but the best in her future endeavors."

Berger, co-chairman and CEO of PMK˙BNC, added of the split, "I care very deeply for her personally, but I felt that professionally it was time for us to move on." Sources tell us that Carey has yet to bring in a new p.r. rep. Carey, 45, will kick off a residency at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Vegas on May 6, performing 18 of her No. 1 hits in the act. She's also expected to put out an album of her hits for Epic.

The news of Berger's departure came as it was also reported Carey and Brett Ratner's RatPac Entertainment are developing a Christmas film to star the diva. Deadline reported that New Line bought the untitled project.

Mariah Carey to star in Christmas movie

Mariah Carey is coming to a theater near you (rejoice, Glitter fans!). The 45-year-old "All I Want for
Christmas Is You" singer is set to star in an upcoming, untitled Christmas film, E! News has confirmed. According to Deadline, who first reported the story, Carey will play a "major role" in the flick.

While the plot is unknown, the trades reports that "Christmas is at the film's center, along with a theme of how the power of music can transport you back in time to your truest and most authentic feelings." The movie will also feature some of Carey's classic holiday songs, along with tunes from other artists.

As for the origin of the exciting project, Carey came up with the idea herself and pitched it to her BFF and recently rumored boyfriend Brett Ratner! The duo recently sparked dating rumors when they were photographed together on vacation. However, a source told E! News that the romance rumors are false, adding, "Brett thinks it's silly."

Carey's Christmas movie will be written by writers David Diamond and David Weissman and produced by Jon Shestack. Carey has had a mixed history with her feature film appearances. Her performance in the 2001 film Glitter was basically universally panned by critics and fans. However, her small role in the Oscar-nominated flick Precious received acclaim.
