ABOUT THE SONG

  • Not everything that ended up on Caution was quite so off-the-cuff. “The Distance,” a wildly deep R&B ballad, started when Lido and Skrillex were in the studio in Las Vegas — Lido focused on “melodies and harmonies,” he says, while Skrillex handled “sound design and fusing it all together.”

    Though Skrillex has been working with more pop acts lately (Fifth Harmony, Justin Bieber), he’s still an unexpected presence on Carey’s album; she usually works with artists from hip-hop and R&B. “He seemed to want to bring himself into her world, and vice versa — it was a great musical marriage, so to speak,” says Lewis, the A&R. “And the result was some of the most progressive R&B you’re going to hear right now.”
