FMQB Reviews 'I Want To Know What Love Is'

< > MARIAH CAREY “I Want To Know What Love Is” (Island/IDJMG) 

I’ll be the first to admit I’m not a big fan of remakes. Some artists, and in many cases new artists, often resort to launching their careers with such recordings. But when an established Grammy Award winning superstar artist decides to record a remake they better choose wisely, and Mariah Carey does just that with a classy re-working of Foreigner’s #1 hit from 1984, “I Want To Know What Love Is.” MC is at her very best vocally, delivering a heartfelt emotion and passion that is sure to connect with an even wider audience than the #1, “Obsessed,” which generated lots of headlines and buzz. It’s the perfect follow-up and launch track for Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel, a new album due September 29. It’s a big song that only a big artist could handle…Mariah Carey is that artist! MC shines with a performance that screams multi-format hit! BET ON IT!
