Re-recording of "Hero"

The 1993 single "Hero" was re-recorded and re-released to promote the The Ballads compilation. The video shows Mariah Carey walking into the recording room accompanied by her dog, lingering in the studio and singing to the song. It is intercut with a scene of New York City during the night.[3]

Allmusic [6]
Blogcritics said: "This release is a different type Mariah Carey album. Without her faster and hip hop songs, it is smoother as it puts the focus squarely on her vocals which has always been her greatest attribute and saving grace."[7] Allmusic said: "And that's what The Ballads is: nothing but big love songs sung in a big voice."[6] Billboard stated that the album "will keep singing on the chart as we get closer to Valentine's Day, as it seems like a natural gift purchase."[8]
