New Music: Mariah Carey – “Infamous” Ft. Jussie Smollett 🐐
Ahead of its release, Mariah Carey's Empire cut, “Infamous” has arrived.
Carey, who'll be guest-starring on the musical soap opera collaborates with Jussie Smollett (Jamal). While it was scheduled for release on Friday, it premiered on EW two days prior.
In the Jermaine Dupri-produced cut, Carey remains in her mid-range. Hopefully, the diva intends on keeping this specifically for “Empire” as it sounds unfinished.
Carey's voice sounds very current. (Meaning, it doesn't seem like her voice was enhanced or mixed.) However, Smollett's voice is autotuned on his final verse which was unnecessary. While his tone comes off as annoying, autotune still isn't necessary for support.
The two will be seeing more of each other soon as Smollett will be opening for the chanteuse during her three shows in Honolulu on Nov. 23, 25, and 26.
Listen to “Infamous” below and catch Mariah on “Empire” next Wednesday at 9 p.m. ET.
