Mariah Carey’s new music video for her song Infinity reminds us of all of the reasons that we love her. From the out-of-this-world high notes in the song itself to the storyline of the video, Infinity might be Carey’s next super hit.
For this music video the star teamed up with the dating site Match, and after a rough split from her husband of six-years, Nick Cannon, it looks like Carey is ready to get back out there and find romance.
This video shows that Carey is looking for the real thing in her love life. Superficial factors like physique or lavish gifts do not interest her as much as a man’s capability to love her.
What better way to demonstrate that than with a puppy?
Carey is the superstar who falls for the underdog. The nerdy (and in the end, most successful) suitor is played by Empire’s charming Jussie Smollett, who comes to Carey’s door with a tiny white puppy that captures the singer’s heart.
With other big names involved in this video, including the appearance of Tyson Beckford and the director Brett Ratner (of Rush Hour), it looks like Carey’s pulling out all of the stops.
The diva released the video Monday night at midnight (3 a.m. EST) after posting a behind-the-scenes teaser on Instagram featuring herself and Smollett on set.
