Coming off her first Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 single in five years, Mariah Carey wastes no time in issuing Shake It Off
. The bouncy midtempo single finds the diva dumping her disrespectful, cheating man while name-checking Louis Vuitton and Calgon. The tune is straightforward and simpleÃ‚â€”and the sparse thumping beat wisely doesn't distract from Carey's unmistakable vocals. At one point, she simply kisses off her ex with a voice mail: "Save this recording because I'm never comin' back home, baby I'm gone." After "We Belong Together" brought her back to radio big time, "Shake It Off" will take Carey's good fortune to the next step.
