Here is the official artwork for Mariah Carey‘s new collection of songs titled The Ballads which features 18 of Mimi‘s greatest slow jam hits — 9 of them are #1 songs!
In celebration of this new collection of ballads, Mariah re-recorded one of her biggest #1 hit songs Hero for inclusion in this collection. Additionally, a new music video has been shot that shows Mariah in the studio as she sings this new version of the song. After the jump, check out the video in full …
Hero is one of my fave Mimi songs ever (as I’m sure it is for many of y’all) and I really like this new, updated version (tho I think I do prefer the original). Even tho I already own all of Mariah Carey‘s albums, I might have to pick up this collection of ballads … cuz even tho I HATE slow pop songs, Mimi is the one artist that consistently releases really amazing pop ballads. The Ballads is released on January 27 and can be pre-ordered at Amazon HERE. What do y’all think? Does this new version of Hero make you want to pick up the album for yourselves?
