Released: 28th March 2005.
It's fair to say the last couple of years haven't been the most successful for Mariah, but that looks set to change with this hot new single. Jermaine Dupri has worked up a treat on this comeback for the newly named Mimi. The addictive beats are complimented perfectly by Mariah's vocals, which thankfully are back to sounding their strongest on this song. "It's Like That" has all the ingredients needed for a big hit, and it looks like that's what she'll get with this brilliant comeback single.
After playing out the past several years with underachieving singles and poor album sales, Mariah Carey's derailed career looks set to be put back on track with "It's Like That". Taken from her upcoming "Emancipation Of Mimi" album, the song owes its charm and success to a Jermaine Dupri-produced hot beat, and the resurgence of Mariah's full voice; not to mention an eye-catching video, directed by Brett Ratner and featuring Mariah looking drop dead gorgeous. The Voice is indeed back.
