Yes, and? (105,475) by Dennis from Underneath the Stars
(Friday 16 February 2024; 12:35)
I don't know yet. I really hoped for a reworked version, with different arrangements. At least Mariah is finally on Max Martin's track. I like the original "yes, and?". Especially the video with the dance routine, though for me the production is missing something. It has great potential but is rather "undercooked" still.

Obsessed ft. 50 Cent (104,727) by Dennis from Underneath the Stars
(Sunday 31 December 2023; 14:00)
If it was 2004-2005 maybe. But in 2009 I doubt it. Obsessed is a great song. I prefer it over TMB. I'm not 100% sure, but wasn't Jay Sean's Down #1 around that time? Overall I believe MOIA release was too chaotic and too soon after E=MC2. Barbra Streisand and Paramore occupied the top of album charts.

Who's Maria though? You may conjure Stella by leaving loads of highlighter, rouge and lipstick overnight near the chimney. It will lure Mama Bear. Vernite Stellu bleat.

Unless Billboard changes the cart rules, AIWFCIY may beat Old Town Road record next year.

As long as Ken Lee is out there, there's no need to worry. Ok, maybe ABMB, My All and Fantasy too. Merry Christmas everyone.

My All (Kanye's arrangement) (104,576) by Dennis from Underneath the Stars
(Sunday 17 December 2023; 19:47)
I just watched. There is a snippet of new version of My All. I have listened again to Kanye's version - the lyrics and arrangements are the same. A few years ago Mariah said that she liked Kanye's version of My All and would like to perform it. Then for few years there was nothing. Now it is part of her Christmas show. I like his version, but I like the original more. The new version is called "Christmas Gospel Version".

This photo is not flattering at all, however on YouTube videos she looks good. I've got Honey video vibes from her latest Access Hollywood interview.

MB30 - reflections (103,546) by Dennis from Underneath the Stars
(Thursday 21 September 2023; 16:56)
I'm more "satisfied" with MB30 release than with Butterfly 25. I don't know why. Probably, it's the nostalgia. Or I like her Music Box voice more. I really wish she had released "full voice" version of 4th of July. I've heard snippets on YouTube and I really would love to hear all the takes. Other than that I'm more than happy with whatever comes my way. Wishing all of you the best best "mi arma". Lots of love from the other side.

If you could... (102,149) by Dennis from Underneath the Stars
(Sunday 29 January 2023; 01:11)
I agree that Music Box/Merry Christmas era voice was the best. I for one don't like her Daydream album and tour voice as much as I like her 1994 and 1997 voice. For me a studio album in 1998 would have been perfect, much better than #1's.

Re: Favourite ending (99,766) (99,768) by Dennis from Underneath the Stars

Shoobedobe do do do do from the pop version of Fantasy and Out Here on My Own. Fantasy pop version is actually one of my favourite songs by Mariah. Loverboy Firecracker reminds me original Fantasy a lot. Dreamlover ending is also one of my favourites, I miss Mariah with 5 backup singers from Music Box and Daydream eras.

Thank you for the explanation. I had no intention to hurt anyone's feelings by bringing up shoe shining. Definitely, I have misunderstood the reference. I took it quite literally.

Re: Tommy the racist (99,756) (99,757) by Dennis from Underneath the Stars

Being married to Mariah, an interracial person herself, I don't see Tommy as a racist. He has converted to Judaism, then to Catholic faith in his lifetime. I see him as rather a manipulator. He wanted Mariah to appeal to widest demographic possible at that time. That implied she could not be anything specific (black, white, latina, etc), she had to be an all American girl. Same about him saying that Puffy in few years would shine his shoes. He used an inappropriate metaphor without even realising that. I doubt he was saying that because of the race. Rather he said that because of his obsession with mob culture.

For me Tommy is an opportunist, obsessed with power, control and money. I am sure, though I don't have the stats, that Mariah's albums were giving more financial return than let's say Celine's or MJ albums because Mariah didn't work with people like David Foster or Max Martin. Most of here music was produced in-house, her music videos from that era are cute but rather low budget, all of her CDs design eas basic - 1 or 2 photos, fold in leaflet, mediocre paper quality. Janet's, Madonna's CD designs from the same era are superior. I'm sure, she was getting a tiny fraction of what she was earning in 1990-1999.

Re: Wish/Could've beens list #1s (98,679) (98,684) by Dennis from Underneath the Stars

Candle in the Wind 97' was at #1 around that time. It used to be the best selling single ever. Almost 9M copies sold in US alone. I doubt Butterfly could have gone to #1 at that time.

Article: Mariah Carey threatened to kick JLo's ass (98,474) by Dennis from Underneath the Stars
(Saturday 31 July 2021; 13:45)
This source is extremely reliable and the article is pure fun. This thing is a concoction of The meaning of Mariah, lyrics of Heat, Mariah Carey vs. Jim Carrey MTV Celebrity Deathmatch , and I don't know her rumours. Though the very idea of Mariah fighting with JLo is hilarious.

Re: MC's sexiest album cover (98,470) (98,473) by Dennis from Underneath the Stars
(Saturday 31 July 2021; 13:16)
#1's and Merry Christmas, two covers from two rather opposed eras. Also VOL and the debut album rear photo, the one with the little dress and the mic, is one of her sexiest. I prefer Fantasy single cover over Daydream one. All of her Daydream photos are very classy and sexy.

I've missed the beginning. She has a new Christmas record, a duet with a mystery young artist, probably female. Then she has plans for Someone's Ugly Daughter. She mentioned Post Malonr as a potential duet, something like "guys what if I do a duet with Post Malone?" She is also recording MC16. The chat was a bit messy because people were interrupting each other.

Kelly Price has been on the Terrel Show. She was asked about working with Mariah and she gave Mariah lots of praise. I'm very surprised by that after all the years of speaking BS about MC, especially on R&B divas with Wendy Williams. Why sudden u-turn?

I believe Mariah is just lucky. Glitter could have destroyed her, NYE could have destroyed her. Somehow she made it. Showbiz likes that kind of story.

Re: Someones Ugly Daughter's voice (98,373) (98,382) by Dennis from Underneath the Stars

Alcohol and weed. Nobody denies that. But do you believe her vocal techniques were healthy from the beginning? I'm sure that apart from what Pat has taught her he has not had any proper vocal training. She had overstressed her vocal cords at the very beginning of her career. I'm sure that is the reason she had not toured until 1993 and all her 90s tours were rather short ones. Remember she laind in one of her interviews that she lost her voice in the late 80s, then she quitted smoking. I'm sure that is why her voice was changing from album to album in the early 90s.
