Eternal: Mariah Carey Reminds Us Of Her Previous Success On Eve Of New Single

Mariah Carey File Photo

Mariah Carey is about to release her new single (You're Mine) Eternal" on February 12th and the as yet untitled new album May 6th.

Has it really been 5 years since the last Mariah record? We are not counting the Christmas album sequel. We had Triumphant released which was anything but. She had a mini-hit with Miguel on "Beautiful" last year but no new album and an awful video to show for it.

Will Mariah give us new material to look forward to or will we need a video again in a couple of years reminding us again how great Mariah was instead of how great she is?-DocFB

Diagnosis: We will know the answer very soon....
