Epic RecordsMariah Carey has released yet another new track from her upcoming album, Caution.
The slow jam track, “The Distance,” features rapper Ty Dolla $ign, and features Mariah singing about a love that endures despite people’s disapproval.
“People saying what we have is over/But the hate only made us get closer/And closer,” sings Mariah. “Said we couldn’t go the distance/Look at us, we’re going the distance/They just wanna be us/They don’t wanna see us going the distance/for life, for life.”
Thematically, the song is similar to Mariah’s previous single, “With You,” in which she sings about two people who’ve weathered multiple hardships but are still in love.
Caution is due November 16. If you pre-order it now, you’ll instantly score “With You,” “The Distance,” and the first track Mariah released from the project, “GTFO.”
