We certainly didn't anticipate THIS would be the direction Mariah Carey would take when we first got a sneak peek of her single for the Oz The Great & Powerful soundtrack over the weekend!
In fact, we weren't even sure that it was ACTUALLY HER when we started listening to the full version!
But yes, Almost Home has arrived in its glorious entirety, and even if the diva sounds as though she's singing the first portion of the song while floating through the high altitudes far above the ground in the title character's hot air ballon, this is DEFINITELY one you should stick with all the way through!
The runs at the end are OUT OF CONTROL…and CLASSIC Mimi!
Believe us! It's a grower, folks!
Give it a listen (above)!
What do U think?? Are U feeling Almost Home?
