Mariah Carey “The Distance” Featuring Ty Dolla Sign: Listen to New Song
Mariah Carey's rap ties go back a while, and throughout her lengthy career, the R&B singer has always kept a hip-hop collab in her back pocket. On Thursday (Oct. 18), the pop star continues the trend with her new single "The Distance" featuring Ty Dolla $ign.
The mellowed track, created by Lido, Skrillex and Poo Bear, packs some punch with dreamy chords and a head nod-inducing drum pattern. The songstress croons about going all the way with her lover. "Ain't nobody stopping us/What we have is dangerous/Left they opinions in the dust/Said can't nobody fuck with us," Carey croons on the first verse. "They'll never find a way to make us fade away/Our love won't fade away (no)/They'll never find a way to make us fade away/Our love won't fade away."
Ty Dolla helps out on the chorus and tackles his own verse. "We've been goin' all the way, ay/For the longest (ooh yeah)/We're too strong (too strong)!/We're too silent (ooh yeah)/They can't stop it now (ooh)/We in Prada now (ooh)/Fuck all their comments (fuck all their comments)/They be so toxic," he rhymes.
"The Distance" will reside on Carey's upcoming Caution album, which is set to be released on Nov. 16.
