Mariah Carey might be struggling to piece together the body of work she wants to present in the form of an album, but she has something fresh to smile about today. According to Billboard, Carey's "You're Mine (Eternal)" has reached a new height on the Dance chart.
Weeks after its initial release, "You're Mine (Eternal)" shoots straight to the top of the Dance/Club Play Songs chart in the wake of an open and honest Billboard magazine cover story.
In her cover story, Mariah Carey told the magazine that she is taking her time to craft the next album, which will be her first in five years.
"You would think I would be all about the singles-driven situation, and I am in a way, but with this particular album I want my fans to hear it as a body of work," said Carey. "This is my life since we last left off. Just picture a dot dot dot, and then here's the album."
She went on to say that tomorrow is not promised to anyone and that being said, she wants this project to be special for the Lambily.
"I will always make music. When I said [this album] could be my last, that's because tomorrow's not promised to anyone. When I release anything, it's difficult — it could be a performance that you don't love and it's like, 'Great, everybody's going to pick this apart,' and that's it. What I'm trying to say is I wanted this to be something I could be proud of, whether it's like, 'Yay, No. 1 song!,' and this and that. However things end up happening, we've all worked so hard. The true lambily have all worked so hard to break all these Billboard records and to have this incredible experience with me that I want them to have this almost as a gift," said Carey.
