With her five-octave range, 18 No. 1 hits and 32 Billboard Music Award wins, it’s safe to say Mariah Carey has had an illustrious career filled with many accolades since her self-titled album debuted in 1990. To satisfy your craving for Mimi’s jams, Billboard Dance compiled a list of the best Mariah Carey songs remixed — ranging from deep house to high-energy electro vibes.
Mariah Carey – “You’re Mine” (Fedde Le Grande Remix)
Dutch DJ/producer Fedde Le Grande’s take on Mariah Carey’s R&B song about a past love is refreshingly upbeat, owing to his signature house production that keeps her breathy vocals and whistle register intact.
Mariah Carey – “Touch My Body” (Cyril Hahn Remix)
Swiss DJ/producer Cyril Hahn slowed down the instrumental and vocals on Mariah’s 2008 single “Touch My Body,” lending a sultry deep house vibe to Carey’s fun pop melody.
Mariah Carey – “We Belong Together” (Siik Remix)
Carey’s tenth studio album The Emancipation of Mimi is a carefully crafted melodic outing with hip-hop influences, thanks to production from ATL’s very own Jermaine Dupri. However, Siik helps preserve that sound while adding his own twist by sampling “Lotus Flower Bomb” by Wale ft. Miguel.
Mariah Carey – “All I Want For Christmas” (DJ Q Remix)
Carey’s 1994 classic Christmas hit gets some European clubbing flavor thanks to British DJ/producer DJ Q.
Mariah Carey – “I’ll Be Lovin U” (Designer Drugs Remix)
Designer Drugs’ take on Mimi’s E=MC^2 love song is to subtract T.I.’s verse, add an upbeat electro instrumental, and the result is a song that elevates the single’s softer lyrics.
Mariah Carey – “Emotions” (Drop Doper Remix)
Croatian duo Drop Dopers uplifts Carey’s 1991 contemporary R&B track by adding a fun house sound that transports you to the coast of the Adriatic Sea.
