Yeah so I hated on Swizz in the past and I still think he’s produced his fair share of terrible beats but hidden at the end of Mariah’s new album is a pretty track called “Secret Love” with banging drums and a beautiful chorus and plinking pianos and it is pretty much WHOA. Melisma to a minimum, one of the best songs she’s ever done, especially when her vocals are double- and quadruple-tracked during the chorus and she breathes “Secret Looooove” in the background. Make this a single. Trust me.
PS: Make sure to check Damage Control tonight –
