According to ET, she drew quite a group of fans when she filmed the visuals there. It prompted police and her security team to come in for crowd control. They eventually makes it to the music video.
The clip arrives in the week of lip-syncing at AMA accusations leveled against her. "Stop lipsynching Mariah," one Twitter user wrote, while another tweeted, "Mariah looks great but why is she lip syncing?!" One other user said, "Someone take Mariah to karaoke and teach her how to lipsync better #AMAs."
Her team has shut down the accusations though, with a representative saying, "Wow we can't even get through five minutes without someone trying to tear her down."
"With You" serves as the first official single of her upcoming album, though she has previously released breakup anthem "GTFO". Details about the forthcoming effort, including its title and release date, remain unknown. However, previous report suggested that it would feature guest appearances from Drake and Daniel Caesar.
