In the clip, the Elusive Chanteuse emerges in slow motion from a pool, wearing a sparkling indigo one-piece as she shows off her famous whistle register in the song’s opening moments. From there, she’s all smiles as she struts poolside and makes a splash in her perfectly on-brand heels covered with butterflies of the same color, captioning the post, “Big Big Energy moment! And thank you lambs for the Sweet Sweet Fantasy revival! #BigEnergyRemix.”
Indeed, Mimi has every reason to be feeling herself. Once she jumped on the remix — which interpolates her 1995 smash hit “Fantasy” — the single shot to No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 and topped both the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and Pop Airplay charts. The annual success of “All I Want for Christmas Is You” notwithstanding, the collab has earned the superstar her highest charting new song since 2008’s “Touch My Body,” which served as her 18th No. 1 hit.
For Lambs wanting to learn the magic behind her golden pen (and voice), Carey is now offering a MasterClass course titled “Find Your Voice with Mariah Carey,” which delves into her inimitable songwriting process. During the class, she even teams up with Brandy to produce and record a brand new version of her Butterfly-era single “The Roof (Back in Time).”
In just two months, the singer will (finally!) be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame after waiting two and a half years for the ceremony due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Watch Mariah make a splash below.
