Ahead of tonight’s “Mariah’s World” finale on E!, Jermaine Dupri has teased a snippet of Mariah Carey‘s new single featuring rapper YG.
In a preview from the show, the pop diva is seen in the studio recording the breakup anthem, which was produced by Dupri and Bryan-Michael Cox.
An impassioned Carey sings: “We stole a moment in time / Gave you everything that you needed / I was even down to repeat it.” Later she borrows from Donell Jones’ classic single “Where I Wanna Be” on the chorus. “Cause when you love someone, you just don’t treat them bad,” sings Mariah.
In the full teaser, Mariah takes off her engagement ring, raising speculation that the track is actually a message to her former fiancé, Australian billionaire James Packer. The episode documents her breakup with Packer and the budding romance between her and one of her dancers, Bryan Tanaka.
“Songwriting is very healing for me,” says Mariah. “The studio and the experience of creating new music, it feels so much more like home to me than anywhere else.”
The final episode of “Mariah’s World,” entitled “We Belong Together,” is set to air tonight (Jan. 29) at 9 p.m. on E!.
Since signing with Epic Records, Mariah is now working on her follow-up album to 2014’s Me. I Am Mariah… The Elusive Chanteuse.
