Is old school Mariah Carey back?!

By the sound of her new single, "Infinity," it seems so! The new track, which will be released on her upcoming greatest-hits album, Mariah Carey #1 to Infinity, has all of the corny lyrics and Carey vocals that we all have come to know and love. There might be one person, however, who might not take a particular liking to this song—estranged husband Nick Cannon.

"Why you mad / Talking 'bout you mad / Could it be / That you just lost the best you / Ever had / That's yo bag / Yep, that's too bad," she croons, seemingly referring to the father of her twins, Moroccan and Monroe.

Cannon filed for divorce from the "Always Be My Baby" singer in January, only a few months after he took to Twitter to publicly declare his love for Carey. "I love Mariah Carey and that will never change!!!!" he posted. He then wrote a series of tweets defending their marriage and her abilities as a mother.

But now it seems that their split has become a little bit uglier, as the lyrics to her new song, which will be the only original song on the upcoming album, are written about the America's Got Talent host.

"Close the door / Lose the key / Leave my heart on the mat for me / I was yours / Eternally / There's an end to infinity / To infinity," she sings in the chorus.

Although the lyrics are definitely loaded, there are some cheesy lines that make you want to sing along with the volume on full blast. Lines such as "name hold weight like kilos / boy you actin't so corny like fritos," almost make you forget what the song alludes to and instead makes you want to blast it like it's "Fantasy" or "Emotions."

"Infinity" reunites Carey and Epic CEO Antonio "L.A." Reid who helped put together one of Carey's best-selling albums, The Emancipation of Mimi. She will perform her new single and the rest of her hits at her #1 to Infinity show in Las Vegas. For now, she has released only a lyric video, which is just as corny as the lyrics themselves, thanks to visuals that include cartoon butterflies and images of doors closing. She will eventually release a music video that will be directed by longtime friend Brett Ratner.

Recently Ratner and Carey sparked rumors of a potential romance after getting spotted cozying up together, but both insist they're just friends. "It makes me laugh actually," he told E! News. "It cracks me up. We're great friends. She's awesome and she's amazing."
