Mariah Carey teamed up with Justin Bieber, T.I. and French Montana for a brand new track — a remix of her ‘Infinity’ hit titled ‘Why You Mad?’ It’s awesome! Listen to the hot hit now before it drops in the club!
What do you get when you put Mariah Carey, 46, Justin Bieber, 21, T.I., 34, and French Montana, 30, in a studio together? You get a hot remix of the original Mariah song “Infinity” that’s absolutely incredible, of course! The quartet’s revamp of the song is retitled “Why You Mad?” But it doesn’t make us mad at all!
Mariah was recently spotted at a recording studio in Hollywood, where she teased a major musical collaboration. And here we have it, The brand new song, first posted by TMZ, is frankly so infectious it should come with a warning. (CLICK TO LISTEN!)
Justin reportedly crashed Mariah’s late night recording session with French. After he reportedly said he was a huge fan of Mimi’s, he added some vocals to the song. Justin was in the right place at the right time! The hit is actually a remix of Mariah’s “Infinity” track that was featured on her #1 To Infinity collection, which was released in May 2015.
On Aug. 5, Mariah posted videos with snippets of the song included. In the first Instagram video, Mariah and French can be seen listening to “Why You Mad?” and enjoying her vocals. In the second video, Mariah walks out of the camera’s view, while French stares into the lens and shows off his verse. Mariah then returns and shoves a giant seashell in front of the camera.
Mariah’s most recent album accompanied her Las Vegas residency at Caesar’s Palace, which began on May 6. The residency will conclude on February 2, 2016. We wonder if this means she will include this remix, with all of her star-studded guests, as part of her next leg of shows? We will just have to wait and see.
What do you think of the new track, HollywoodLifers? Is it a hit or a miss?
