Touch My Body
Label: Def Jam Recordings
The first single from her 11th studio album is so Mariah, from the sweet-as-sugar-pie beats to the kittenish vocals to the, um, slightly paranoid/just-this-side-of-crazy lyrics threatening to hunt down her lover if he videos their tryst. It's a cute track, and Mariah has some neat vocal tricks up her sleeve (the little syllabic ornamentations the melody tiptoes into midway through is especially endearing). But it would've been nice to see Carey show off those legendary five octaves a bit more.
