Oh my gush (83,395) by Andrew from London, UK
(Friday 17 August 2018; 15:06)
O Todd, Aretha would have known how respected and adored she was, me thinks. Dead people can read Twitter, right? Oh, wait. What I find really shit is the plethora of celebrities who fall over themselves to write the biggest load of gush and search out pictures of themselves with the dead person as though trying to capitalise on the person of the hour - the dead person of the hour, no less. Every time a famous person dies a competition ensues to see who can get their gushfest quoted by the press alongside the mandatory Beyonce twaddle. I can let Mariah off this one as they were close.

Thanks for that post. Finally someone else notices those things. And a week ago none of those songs would have charted on Itunes. RIP Aretha, she will be missed greatly.

Bon voyage Aretha (83,393) by Todd from Australia

Sigh. Here we have yet another example of a singer that a week ago, had you called your local station to request a song by, you'd be laughed away. Today, that station would have been talking about what a legend she was, and dropping her songs in amongst on the Taylor Sheerans and the Demi Gomezs of the world. I think it is so shit that people are never around to hear how much they were truly adored.

Lady Soul, Aretha Franklin (83,392) by Terna from Nigeria

Out of nowhere yesterday, I suddenly thought of Aretha and then I played "Sparkle" and "It Hurts Like Hell" and hoped she was ok, only to log on much later in the day and find out about her passing. I'm so affected by this news of Aretha, kinda like the same way with Whitney's death. She's been around my whole life, heck she's been here since before my parents got married. Music is truly never going to be the same again. Rest on Aretha - the voice of an entire generation.

What a bizarre statement. She is late excuse it is part of her "brand"? For "brand" read "arrogance".

Another legend gone. It makes me sad. But her music will live forever. What a voice, what a woman. The queen of soul will be missed.

That's true, but also not wishing to disappoint Carole, Mariah instead suggested they collaborate on an original song together and If It's Over was born. Aretha will be greatly missed. Her Amazing Grace album is probably the best record I've ever listened to.

The most important female voice in contemporary music both past and present. Mariah's tribute to Ms. Franklin was absolutely beautiful and very heartfelt.

I assumed she would be late but the show started on time and I missed Vision of Love and Love Takes Time.

Ariana and Christina both released singles that failed to catch fire and continued to release singles hoping one would eventually catch on but it never happened. Ariana has never recovered from Donutgate, lol. I don't follow Tamia's career so I don't know what happened there. However, if I had to guess I'd wager she did so for the same reason as the aforementioned artists. I think Mariah is going to release an "aggressive" uptempo song as the first single from her new album in the vein of It's Like That, Migrate, I'm That Chick, or Side Effects. I think Mariah will release her new album within weeks of the release of the single or on the same day, with no warning.

Mariah posted a heartfelt tribute to Aretha on her social media accounts. FYI, after seeing Mariah perform Carole King contacted Mariah asking her if she would be interested in covering (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman, a song she had written alongside Gerry Goffin for Aretha Franklin and Mariah politely declined feeling uneasy about covering a song one of her musical influences executed so perfectly.

Haha. I thought that as well but for some reasons, I think residencies at CP tend to be on time. I missed VOL when I went to the show back in May 2015. It started right at 8 PM. I'm not sure how it is for the second residency but I'd say if it starts late, it's around 15-30 minutes max.

If Mariah participates in a tribute to Aretha she'll most likely talk about how she was influenced by her and about performing with her on Divas Live before singing Chain of Fools.

Pre-releasing tracks (83,376) by Tyler from USA

It seems like the trend is for artist to release 3-4 tracks before the album is released. Artist such as Tamia, Ariana, Christina have all done this. While this may add anticipation to the record's release, I really hope MC doesn't follow the trend. I want to listen to the record as a body of work not a album of full singles. I remember not listening to the leak tracks when TEOM was released for this purpose. I really feel as if MC's going to tell a story with this album ranging from her honestly being bi-polar, losing love (James) and finally being in a great place. I can be patient and do without the multiple lead singles. Bring on this album.

Guys, can anyone tell me how long does the Vegas show last? It starts at 8pm. Does she show up late recently? I want to come to Vegas just for the show and then hop on the plane so I would appreciate any information.

That was a really great show with excellent vocals. I put it on just to have a look and ended up listening to the whole thing and halfway I started checking tickets again for the upcoming Christmas shows.

When MC drops the new single ahead of her iHeart Music Festival performance, we will know that a new era is about to begin. Something big is about happen right after Labor Day. I just feel something aggressive is about to drop soon.
