CRYBABY

The song "Crybaby" was released as a promo in April 2000 and can also be found on the single "Can't take that away (Mariah's theme)". As an independent single it was only released as a promo.

Billboard wrote about the song: "While top 40 fans digests the diva ballad 'Can't take that away from me', R&B hip-hoppers are offered this sultry, groove-laced number. Musically, it's deep in the pocket of current trends (and it makes excellent use of a slice of Guy's 'Piece of my love'), and it inspires Carey to deliver one of her more raw and ultimately adventurous vocals to date. She deftly contrasts whispery vamps and fluttering harmonies with a guttural rant that is as soulful as it is aggressive. While listening to her play with the instantly memorable melody, it's clear that Carey's having the time of her life with the song. For that reason alone, this is a single for all to embrace - not just R&B/hip-hop specialists. Factor in a fun guest rap by Snoop Dogg and you've got the makings of yet another much-deserved hit from the singer's fine 'Rainbow' opus."
