Mariah Carey has been fishing around for a new sound, and a hit record. She may have it with “With You,” her breathy new R&B ballad that has a nice pace, is well sung, and has its eye on the top of the charts. “With You” is a HUGE improvement over “GTFO,” too. If this is the direction of her new album, Mariah’s on the right track. “With You” is written and produced by Dijon McFarlane aka DJ Mustard, who definitely cuts the mustard. Maybe Mariah can perform her cover of Harry Nilsson’s “Without You” as a book end to “With You.” Then she can cover “With or Without You” by U2.
Mainly, it’s nice to hear her wonderful voice put to good use. More like this, please.
