"It's about loving yourself first. Infinity is like love equals you first, the line, there's a section of the song where it's like a chant; it's like, 'You're leaving, you're leaving, you're out the door, infinity loving me more and more', meaning you have to love yourself first, it can't be all about somebody else's thing or their issues, it has to be you and then you can deal with the rest of the things in your life... We had fun with the lyrics, but I do that with a lot of songs." Mariah Carey explains the meaning behind the lyrics of her new song Infinity, which many fans assumed was all about estranged husband Nick Cannon.
