EDITORS’ NOTES

Carey downplays multi-octave vocal fireworks in favor of cooed phrases and rapid-fire word slinging, an approach that fits the restless vibe of tunes like “Migrate” (a club-hopping duet with rapper T-Pain) particularly well. She decks herself out in Jamaican trappings in “Cruise Control” and invokes the lush elegance of disco in “I’ll Be Lovin’ U Long Time.”
