For legendary R&B diva Mariah Carey, the process of producing “Me. I Am Mariah…The Elusive Chanteuse” definitely meant going all in or nothing.

Working on “Me. I Am Mariah…The Elusive Chanteuse” and making it a formidable comeback meant choosing various “right” and perhaps best producers to work with. But an army of producers could pose as a danger of diluting the album’s cohesiveness, correct? Wrong. She’s already gifted with an inhumanly possible ethereal multiple-octave range so just about any song that’s thrown her way just needs the signature “Mariah touch”.

One such song off “Me. I Am Mariah…The Elusive Chanteuse” that we’ve currently got on loop is the mid-tempo “You’re Mine (Eternal)”, which was co-written and co-produced with Rodney Jerkins. You may know him as “Darkchild” and trust us, “Darkchild” certainly has lots to boast about.


For starters, he has bagged four Grammys to date on top of multiple nominations and the artistes that he has previously worked with include Brandy (remember “The Boy Is Mine”?), Jennifer Lopez (for “If You Had My Love”), Destiny’s Child (say my name, say my name, if no one was around you, say baby I love you!), Spice Girls, Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, Beyoncé, Pussycat Dolls, the list goes on and on.

With Mariah, they made magic with this hypnotic, quiet storm of a song:

Ladies and gentlemen, this is truly one of the many “Mariah Carey done right” songs. They (Mariah Carey and Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins) know what’s up, definitely.
