Too much hype (98,868) by Edward from USA
(Saturday 6 November 2021; 20:46)
According to the way Mariah was hyping up this song, one could've inferred she had a hidden gem or something. When editing out anything after the minute 3:35, I make the song somewhat passable. Sadly, evidenced by whatever is happening in this song vocally, Mariah has kind of turned into a "one trick whistle". I know I'll be crucified before Thanksgiving here, but there's no way Tony would've allowed her to put this song out, but oh well. It is what it's not.

Some Lambs are reporting that streaming and sales are so high that it is possible for FILAC to debut at #1 on the Hot 100 Tuesday.

It's good to know I'm not the only one. I really, really don't understand why this song is released, or even made. Not my cup of tea.

She's acting like she's having an affair with the pillar in the video. It looks a bit weird.

Um, no, just no. I don't like it at all and here's exactly why. The song has no form, no memorable hook nor distinct melody line one can sing along to. Khalid bless him is as bland a male singer as I have ever heard just there, he adds absolutely nothing to the song and at some point it sounds like he's just singing along trying to catch up. It's obvious this wasn't a collaborative "duet" ("When Christmas Comes" with John Legend like we don't have enough of those hideous "duets") and he's just tagging along. Recall when her and Whitney scored "When You Believe" before the final vocals and knew exactly when to come in and when not to, so it doesn't sound muddy? This song lacks that and comes across as muddy and rushed, all over the place and just not up to Mariah Carey standards. I am not impressed. Next.

Ok wow, he's playing on "Portrait"? Then he kinda has potential. I also love the piano interlude on the WBT Valentine mix after the song ends. Very nostalgic.

In the veins of My All and After Tonight but it definitely sounds like Toni Braxton's Spanish Guitar. Honestly I need the lyrics in front of me because I'm more visual than auditory.

It is not like her other Christmas music in my opinion and likely will reflect that by not doing much chart wise but I think the arrangement is really beautiful myself. ❤️

Mariah should have stayed with Roc Nation (98,859) by T from USA

I am sincerely worried about her next few releases. Never mind a studio album, does she even have a record label?

Yes. Portrait, Close My Eyes (Acoustic 2020), and We Belong Together ( Mimi's Valentine's Mix).

Portrait and In The Mix are the other two original compositions by Daniel Moore and Mariah. The songs are ok, including FILAC. But they are more adult music than hit music. There's just no pow.

I'm guessing that would be the Keyboardist right? What other collaborations have they done together?

I know MC likes to be the star of her own videos and wow does she look stellar in this new one. However I'm wondering if for this particular song she could have released a creative video with real people who are actually in love or falling in love (at Christmas time). Then in December she hits us with the Joseph Khan directed performance for the Apple special. That way there would really be something for everyone. And as much of a good actress she is she does not display the feeling of falling in love in this video.

That's great news as I always suspected TFV was never put out on DVD outside of Japan because of her hatred for all the videos. Glad she's got over that now, as I love all of them. Especially Someday.

Also Jamie where did you get this news from as I tried to find it but couldn't?

I don't think it's going to dethrone AIWFCIY, or Oh Santa for that matter lol. I must say though, Mariah looks absolutely incredible in the video. Ageless beauty that she is.

Its chances of hitting number #1 again this year is going to be difficult because of Adele and Post Malone's and The Weekend's One Right Now.

I felt the same. Two different songs spliced together. But overall it's a lovely song. It's different from your typical Christmas song. I get the opinion of some who say it doesn't feel like a Christmas song. But I think that's exactly why I like it. I can listen to AIWFCIY, classic songs from Bing Crosby and Andy Williams, and then switch to FILAC. It's a beautiful song. The fa-la-la-fall in love bridge is genius.

Yes, the first part of the song reminds me of "My All", "After Tonight" too. I enjoy that part after the first listen, but I think at 3:35 minutes it sounds like another song, that's a bit strange. A pop Christmas song and gospel at the end doesn't fit well together. A Christmas song for the radio/streaming and a gospel song for the fans would fit better. But I'm happy to hear something new.

Love, love, love. I was already a fan of Khalid and was super excited for this collab. Loved how their voices blend together and the gospel outro at the end was everything.

I'm with you. So far I don't think Daniel has the x-factor. Competent musician but no hit factor. I would have liked to hear her version of Where Are You Christmas this season. Oh well. It's too bad she cannot reconnected with Walter A. Even just for Christmas time.

I am just not feeling all of these collaborations with Daniel. Hopefully he didn't have anything to do with the The Clark Sisters and Brandy collaborations.

I don't feel this song at all, doesn't have a Christmas feel to it, actually it's one of the few Mariah tunes I really dislike.

The Butterfly Lounge / Fall in Love (98,844) by Nikki from United States of Mariah
(Friday 5 November 2021; 14:40)
I am so excited for this new Butterfly Lounge project. I am almost sure that's the name of this new Christmas album/project. Mariah mentioned a lounge during her Twitter Spaces chat when discussing her upcoming collabs including Brandy. I have a feeling she has so much in store for this concept, lots of duets and a whole new vision for a holiday album. This is going to be something so special, I love that the vibe is more adult contemporary. It doesn't sound like holiday music, but it has the warmness and captures the type of love felt around this time of year. This first offering from it is a masterpiece.

I watched the video several times in a row and I was brought to tears. The music is just beautiful, the vocals are drenched in nostalgia and longing. This is an instant classic in my opinion. It doesn't sound like a Christmas song, it actually sounds like something you want to hear around Thanksgiving. This is a song for the first frost, for driving home to see family and friends, for the very beginnings of sweater weather and sipping Black Irish.

This song is the musical equivalent of soul food. It makes me feel warm inside and it has me wanting more and more. Thank you Mariah, this is absolutely beautiful.
