Track 7: “You’re Mine (Eternal)”
D-Money: Next! Oh wait, we actually have to say something about this, huh?
Butta: Aw, this song has grown on me in the context of the album. Like “#Beautiful” it just wasn’t single material, which ruined its impact.
D-Money: It’s just so tired to me. It seems like they just tried to throw every successful Mariah mid-tempo joint into a pot and hoped that a hit would be created. Instead, they got this stale mess. It could be worse, though. They could’ve included the Trey Songz version.
Butta: Just when I had forgotten about that Trey Wrongz tomfoolery, here you come to remind me. Thanks, D.
D-Money: *hums chorus of “That’s What Friends Are For”*
Butta: For me, myself, personally, where I am right now, the song appeals to me lyrically.
D-Money: I can see that. It’s kinda decent lyrically. If only the production wasn’t so lazy. Rodney Jerkins dropped the ball on this one.
Butta: So you’re saying this could have been left off the final tracklist accidentally on purpose, too, huh?
D-Money: Yep! Right there on the floor with “Triumphant.”
Butta: Oh damn, I truly forgot about that song!
