This will be the next single from 'The emancipation of Mimi'. Mariah has already filmed the video!
She describes it as a mix between 'The roof' and 'One sweet day'.

Here are the lyrics:

[Mariah]
Floatin' away like a feather

[JD]
Baby you know...

[Mariah]
You know that we belong together... baby...

I'm so comforted
Even though you're gone
For all I know
You may be hearin' this song
The love we shared
Those sacred nights
Sketched forever in my mind
My best friend
Sweet confindant
Baby you know that I know
That we showed, that we've grown
It's alright

So you've floated away
Like a feather
Baby you knew
We belonged together
Sweet kisses goodbye
Forget you? I'd never
'Cause baby I knew we belonged together

[JD]
And it hurts

[Mariah]
Deep inside...

[JD]
But true love

[Mariah]
Never dies... it never dies...

Baby I catch myself
Looking straight to the sky
With the warmth of the sun
Reminding me you're alright
(You're alright... you're alright)
And in the cool of the night
You're wrapped in blankets of stars
Sweetly I find myself wishing
I could be where you are
But I know in my time
I'll be where angels trod
For now, with closed eyes
Baby, I will thank God
(That I had you this long)

So you've floated away
Like a feather
Baby you knew
We belonged together
Sweet kisses goodbye
Forget you? I'd never
'Cause baby I knew we belonged together

[Mariah Speaking]
This song goes out to Aaliyah... Left Eye... Ray... and ODB... We love you... One day we'll all be together... One day we'll all be together...

[Mariah with Choir]
We belong... we belong together!
We belong... we belong together...
I said... we belong... we belong together!
We belong... we belong together
Forever, together forever
No matter what weather
We'll be together always!

So you've floated away
Like a feather
Baby you knew
We belonged together
Sweet kisses goodbye
Forget you? I'd never
'Cause baby I knew we belonged together
I can't wait to hear it! :o
When you left I lost a part of me, It's still so hard to believe
Come back baby please cos We belong together

Access Hollywood will air tomorrow an exclusive segment from the set of Mariah's video shoot. It turns out that Mariah has shot the video to "We Belong Together" for the past couple of days and will start shooting the video to "It's Like That" tomorrow. Brett Ratner is the director of both videos.

Image

Be sure to watch tonight's episode of "Inside Edition" for a segment about Mariah, supposedly from the set of her new video.

The preview for the show offered the answer to: "Why is Mariah Carey running down the aisle in a wedding gown?"

---in other news---

Earlier today, a listening party to "The Emancipation of Mimi" was held in London, England. Among the invitees were record executives and key media people from around the world.

7 songs from the album were played: "It's Like That", "Say Something," "Get Your Number" which apparently features rap by Nelly as well as "To The Floor," (alternately known as "Tonight") "Mine Again," "We Belong Together," and "Fly Like a Bird" which was the last of the 14-track album.

In addition, a short clip from the Urban remix to "It's Like That" was played.

A Q&A session with L.A Reid followed where he spoke about the current plans for the album: 5 singles, video release by February 25th and tentative plans for a dual-disc cd/dvd hybrid.

Please remember that by the time the album comes out many changes can still be made such as sequencing, removing or adding tracks and changing titles. All the information above is subject to change.

1.) The wedding dress is her wedding dress from 12 years ago apparently.

2.) Those lyrics are fake. Here are the official ones:

We Belong Together

I didn't mean it
When I said I didn't love you so
I should have held on tight
I never should've let you go
I did nothing
I was stupid
I was foolish
I was lying to myself
I could not fathom that I would ever
Be without your love
Never imagined I'd be
Sitting here beside myself

I didn't know you
I didn't know me
But I thought I knew everything
I never felt
The feeling that I'm feeling now
Now that I don't
Hear your voice
Or even touch or even kiss your lips
Cause I don't have a choice
What I wouldn't give
To have you lying by my side

We belong together
When you left
I lost a part of me
It's still so hard to believe
Come back baby please
We belong together

Who else am I gonna lean on
When times get rough
Who's gonna talk to me
Till the sun comes up
Who's gonna take your place
Baby nobody else
We belong together

I can't sleep at night
When you're all on my mind
Bobby Womack's on the radio
Singing to me
'If you think you're lonely now'
Wait a minute
This is too deep, too deep
I gotta change the station
So I turn the dial
Trying to catch a break
And then I hear Babyface

I only think of you
And it's breaking my heart
I'm trying to keep it together
But I'm falling apart
I'm feeling all out of my element
I'm throwing things
Crying
Trying to figure out
Where the hell I went wrong
The pain reflected in this song
Ain't even half of what
I'm feeling inside
I need you
Need you back in my life baby

When you left
I lost a part of me
It's still so hard to believe
Come back baby please
We belong together

Who else am I gonna lean on
When times get rough
Who's gonna talk to me
Till the sun comes up
Who's gonna take your place
There ain't nobody else
We belong together
3.) It's actually been described as "One Sweet Day" meets "Breakdown".

I woould've thought she'd release 'standout track' Mine Again but this sounds cool. Happy to see she's got a proven director at the helm of the videos. Very exciting time in the world of Carey 8-)

She doesn't look too great in those pics...too much hair extensions, too blonde, orange skin - blah. Can't wait for the new album though! :lol: Especially to hear some new Mariah ballads; they're always the best! 8-)

It is a fab dress. I don't know what it is with Mariah but sometimes she looks blobbin ace (see above) and sometimes she looks like Rik Waller's dog :o

Any news on when the videos will be premiering? I'm desperate to hear this new track :cry:

Love that song! :o 8-) Shame they made her sound like she's singing in the bath with the ol' effect processing at the end though :-?

Yeah...she has blonde hair so is therefore trying to be Beyonce by default.

I was being smart...but not to you specifically. To anyone who sees a blonde RnB singer and claims theyre ripping of Beyonce like she invented blonde hair or a curvy figure. Mariah's been around way longer than Bee, so if anyone's stealing ideas, it's certainly not Mariah :wink: :P
