I don't understand peoole from this board (105,648) by "MariahHater" from Hell

Come on guys. She is doing exposure if she will collaborate with Cardi or whoever mainstream [censored] there is. Why are the lambs so hyper in being critical? Lets learn to accept that we are way past the prime. We can have opinions yeah but most of the time people are dragging her nearer to the grave. So much for being a lamb. She can't give out what we want or desire vocally/personality/artistic choices. We all act like as if we are her mother. She is an old adult let her be. Btw just living for the music. Persona, career wise I don't care now. Ugh. Why is charting even created? Sad that art needs to be capitalized for money vs the real form for its consumption.

Sometimes it's not about what you want. Mariah isn't a puppet that you can control the strings to. If you don't understand what a Top 10 hit on Billboard would mean for Mariah then you really don't know Mariah. Because she's always chosen hits and charts above anything else. I believe deep down inside she's a real musician, a soul artist, but she's very much driven by success. It's the American way. If you want more Mariah you have to give her incentive. Stream and buy.

I've never asked or wanted a song or remix with Ariana. I don't like the music from Miss Grande. The same with Cardi B. (even worse). I want real musicians like Jazz/Blues and Soul singers or a band with real instruments. People like James Poyser are also a win. Trends will come and go, but quality music will stay forever. I enjoy the song "Portrait" again lately, I almost get some Stevie Wonder vibes from a part of the melody. Mariah's "You and I" version is heavenly. That's my kind of music.

Yes I agree, what Mariah and Walter had was magical. They should have continued to work together whilst allowing her to still experiment with different sounds as she did with David & Robert. I sometimes feel once singers are established they then want to go off and do what they like. I think it's important to follow things you like however as an artist they are launched in a way that the record executives know will work, and I feel being a music artist should be like an actor. Stick with what works, take advice from others, live your private life the way you want to. But ultimately don't accept a career launch that you say goes against what you believe in and like just to get famous and then decide to turn against that image and style because your now famous and think you can do what you like. People already bought into and loved the Mariah we were introduced to from day one. Changing the dynamics so much to the point your artistry is no longer recognizable, I'm afraid cost her her popularity with the general public. I'm still a Mariah fan because I like her music but I don't agree with how much she changed from what people loved about her and in my eyes actually worked for her and ultimately made her more popular.

I don't understand your obsession. Do you really expect us to spend loads of money (which all goes to Ariana) just to get the remix in the top 10 of Billboard?

If there's one thing we know about MC it's that she's gonna do what she wants creatively and not what others want. It was just a matter of time before her music style or genre would evolve from mostly Pop to something all her own. She seamlessly merged genres and it is magic. Walter or not, she was going to create music from within and collaborate with rappers she respects, a few Walter ballads sprinkled here or there, but mostly her creative expression. Butterfly was inevitable. That's what makes it so wonderful, her full creative freedom was announced when the butterfly emerged from being controlled in the cocoon for many years. She's never going back to the Mary Poppins persona some fans are waiting for. Meanwhile , let me clutch my pearls and gay gasp at a curse word or two while I enjoy the new Yes, And? remix. For the record, GTFO is my favorite song from Caution.

I remember coming to this board for years with people asking for an up tempo Mariah pop song with big vocals. Even Max Martin produced. Some even suggested the impossible, that she's on a track with Ariana Grande. Now we have exactly what everyone has asked for and the success it could find going into the top 10 would be huge. Streaming is easy. Buying is too but this is the day to do it. I've made it easy with two links for us here. Ariana's website and Amazon's new release page.

I agree with you on this and again it's a personal preference for me. I love Mariah's music Daydream onwards. They feel more authentic to her artistry and what she wanted to do so they feel less "manufactured" and "formula driven" to me. She took more chances.

Reminder to stream the remix like never before today. Literally we are so close to a top 10 on Billboard 100 for the upcoming week. It's the difference of one point. If you haven't bought it this is our best chance to see Mariah in the Top 10 without Christmas music. Maybe our last chance. USA buy, stream, request on radio.

True it may be a stretch especially with Ariana singing live for sure. We'll see it's be nice to see Mariah but ya I don't know if she is comfortable with that setting. Hope the Cardi rumors are true and if so I hope it's the main version of the song and not another darn remix where we have to keep hyperventilating if it'll get her credit or not haha. The reason I am excited about Cardi collaboration is not because I'm a huge fan, it's because I want Mariah to get as much coverage on the popular playlists and radio exposures so that it sets her nicely for her own release. This Ariana collaboration eventhough no promo at all had her on a lot of big radios and major playlists. So that is definitely something we want for her.

The respect your response Matty completely. I just feel MC's relationship with Walter A. ended in a very bad way. It has always been this what if in the back of mind.

I am worried as well. SNL is not a show where viewers accept lipped performances (remember the Ashley Simpson failed backing tracking debacle). The social media will not be too nice the day after. The Distance performed on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon in 2019 was her last completely live performance. Can MC do it? Maybe with vocal rest and some hot tea and honey.

Maybe the Cardi B. collaboration is a summer bop and her team is waiting for June or July to unleash to the world. I hope Cardi B pokes fun at Nikki Minaj by calling Mariah's name in her voice the way Nikki Minaj did in Up Out My Face. I am predicting The-Dream co-wrote the collaboration. I haven't predicted in awhile. Lol.

Her image I would say didn't help. But mainly I think the failure of her marriage with Cannon destroyed her. She lost her light, her magic, her energy and motivation since then.

I'm a little worried about how she'll sound (if it is true). It's a lot of strained belting. Let's see how much is going to be live and how much lipped. I hope she puts in the effort to do it justice.

Insiders are saying the Cardi collaboration will be her next step - which is bound to get more people mad here.

I think that fall in 2013 may have set off a series of unfortunate events, and affected more than we'll ever know.

Lol thank you Matty for calling out that discount argument for Loverboy. Just another way to drag her. There were so many singles I bought because they were on sale, therefore I could afford them. No different than songs being discounted now for $0.69 on iTunes.

Ariana is performing at SNL on March 9th. There's rumors Mariah may join her. I don't think I believe that but it'd be a treat.

Ohhhh Robert I don't think I've ever disagreed with you on this board, but if MC kept working with Walter, TEOM would never have happened. After Daydream Mariah would have been cemented in the Celine Dion, Barbra Streisand genre. Just like Michael Bubble will forever be in the Frank Sinatra genre. Mariah was lyrically doing art, and vocally doing art during her time with W.A, but I think even though it was amazing, it was commissioned art, not the art for the artist who wanted to express themselves.

No amount of no.1s is worth her sanity. That's not a bad decision, if anything she saved herself, and gave us Butterfly. Look what's happened to some popstars who never recovered and never regained their sanity.

MC lost her magic when she stopped collaborating with Walter A. She might have 26 #1 songs now if the two never stopped collaborating. That was a bad decision she has paid dearly for.
