Mariah Carey’s twelfth studio album The Art of Letting Go has been gestating for a few years at this point, with release dates and a handful of lead singles — “Triumphant (Get ‘Em),” Miguel collaboration “#Beautiful,” title track “The Art of Letting Go” — coming and going without making a major splash. True divas know it just takes one smash to erase the memories of a long wait, and Mariah’s giving it another go with new single “You’re Mine (Eternal).”

It’s a gaseous, fluffy ballad that feels like a direct descendent of the song that rang in her mid-career renaissance, 2005’s mega-hit “We Belong Together:” plinking piano melodies, a typically fluttering Carey vocal take, and a very similar beat. Only time will tell if “You’re Mine (Eternal)” can duplicate that song’s record-breaking success; The Art of Letting Go’s new release date is May 6.
