Mariah Carey has been entertaining us for decades, but if you're yet to be hit by her wonder, then get involved with these great videos
Mariah Carey is an absolute babe, and anyone who says otherwise is just jealous that they can’t prance around in their neglige getting people to do stuff for them and sipping on champagne. Period. But when I say babe, what I mean is legend, because–prancing in neglige aside–this lady has some of the most killer pipes in the business, plus she knows how to write some catchy AF songs. Complete with racy lingerie, exceptional eyelash extensions and voluminous hair, here’s my list of amazing Mariah Carey videos throughout the ages. Behold greatness.
One word: classic. This song, released in 1993, was one of the first songs to really put Mariah on the international map and was on the album Music Box. You’ve got to love the male dancers in the music video, who seem to be doing some kind of contemporary line dance as Carey moves through a field clad in plaid and crooning about wanting a dreamlover to come and rescue her. I can totes relate.
Always Be My Baby (1995)
If this track doesn’t get stuck in your head and make you want to hop on a tyre swing above a lagoon in the middle of the night, then frankly, I don’t know what will. Mariah has this way of making her intros just as epic as her hooks, and Always Be My Baby is no exception: “do, do, do, dum, do, do, do, do, do, do, dum.” There’s almost a minute of this before she even gets to the point… A MINUTE.
Heartbreaker (1999) Ft. Jay-Z
Mariah and her crew hit a movie theatre to get her man back and it starts with contagious dancing in the lobby. Inside, her and the crew throw popcorn at the evil male and Mariah gets turned into a cartoon. I should have known right from the start you’d go and break my heart, Mariah.
Touch My Body (2008)
Mariah’s just casually hangin’ out at her mansion in her lingerie and satin robe when a nerdy guy comes to fix her computer. From there it’s all about risque cushion slapping, a real live unicorn (almost) and thrones. One of the best Mariah Carey videos of all times, and funny.
Lingerie, robe, big lashes and even bigger hair. Not much has changed in Mariah videos over the years. She’s even doing her signature pose of lying on the bed and chugging a glass of red wine while singing about telling her lover to GTFO. Honestly, what’s not to love about Mariah?
