General public or bad decisions (105,617) by Tevin from USA
(Tuesday 20 February 2024; 19:46)
Personally I think life just happens. At least in respect to the post TMB era. Had Mariah not ran off with Nick, had LA Reid not stupidly picked Bye Bye over Migrate, and had Mariah not disappeared because of tragic events (miscarriage) which is completely understandable, she could have kept up the promotion of E=MC2, which was still a great album in the eyes of the public. I mean Obsessed did well and so did Beautiful, so at the GP was still crazy about Mariah. I think it just came down to a few bad decisions by the Corporate Morgue, and Mariah (right or wrong) not putting 100% into stuff because she wanted to start her family life, which is great. I'm sure she would give up a ton of her success just to have the blessing of having two wonderful kids.

Anyway I always wondered, had Mariah not met Nick and fully stayed in "work mode", had the E=MC2 tour happened, I would think that Mariah would have definitely ruled the charts at least until the mid 2010s, rather than fading away in 08, with a small popular blip in 09 and 13 respectively.

Man oh man, I wish the E=MC2 concert would have happened. Imagine the hype and party feel that would have brought. Can you imagine the high notes from Migrate kicking in and opening the show. Shoot maybe Mariah would have went full or mostly pop then afterwards, instead of slow mid tempo RnB that she went back to.

Ok so I'm confused, if the OG reaches the top ten, does Mariah get credit or no? Some people say yes, some say no. I'm confused, how does this all work? How can a remix overtake an OG song?

Writing (105,572) by Tevin from USA
(Monday 19 February 2024; 16:38)
I really hope within the next couple of years Mariah starts writing and possibly produce songs for other people. Whether for pop stars or rnb singers, up and coming or established. What singers would you love Mariah to write and or produce songs for?

Yes, And? lyrics (105,545) by Tevin from USA
(Sunday 18 February 2024; 18:25)
Sorry I don't agree with you. Some people like listening to songs around their young children. One of the reasons why I became a fan of Mariah was because my parents used to play her music all the time around me as I grew up. If she cussed up a storm back in the 90s and early 2000s, my parents would not have played her music around me and guess what, I probably would not have become a fan.

My point is, it's easy to look at it through adults eyes, but some people may not like to play explicit lyrics around their kids. Also (this isn't always the case), but I find more and more in today's music that lyrical content has become so lazy now that cussing and other explicitness can be freely said in music. There's one thing to have a strong emotion behind a song to use a cus word, there's a completely different reason to just be lazy and throw in words here and there, because you formulate a strong thought or emotion into a lyric. Basically what I'm saying is that many popular songs have lost their depth.

How long before you think the oversaturation will catch up to her (Taylor). It's like they know Midnights was not that great, but they are trying to milk it for all its worth.

So the remix is a lot better than the original song. I hope Mariah and Ariana have a lot of success with this song. I don't mean to be negative but there's this part of me that hopes it cracks the top 10 or even top 5 on Billboard, but not reach number one. I just don't like the song or the message at all. Like I said Mariah added depth to the song that it was missing, and other than the bad mixing on the pre and first chorus everything songs great, uh, I don't know, I just feel like this song shouldn't be attached to the brilliant songs that make up the other 19. Call it single/song impostor syndrome, idk. Anyway on a positive note, I have been trying to stream it in the background to help. I do hope they both work on an original song together in the future and not just remakes.

Also, as a YouTuber said in his reaction of yes and, Mariah has started off belting in a song since 1996 lol, so I was happy and presently surprised that she was belting in full chest voice throughout the song and sounding great too.

(Friday 16 February 2024; 00:26)
Why we wait for Mariah's new single to drop, try this playlist out. This to me would have been the perfect ending to Caution. She should have moved Portrait to the number one or two spots on the album. Anyway, for the last songs put them in this order: Giving Me Life, Caution, (jump over to YouTube and play Selfish), Runway. Try it out and let me know what you all think.

Yes and, my thoughts (105,450) by Tevin from USA
(Thursday 15 February 2024; 21:24)
Ok, so like many of you have said on here, when I heard that there will be a new Mariah song released, I was ecstatic, but I also felt a bit conflicted, because I don't like the song Yes, And. I thought about it for a while and now I'm actually happy Mariah is doing this and here's why.

1. She is stepping outside of her comfort zone, like we have been begging for her to do for years (yes this may be a dance or club track like she's done in the past, but let's be honest, she hasn't done it in a long time).

2. She's collaborating with a female singer (one who can do crazy runs, high belts and even whistle, though not up to Mariah's level). Once again we have been asking her to do this.

3. Homewrecker or not, Ariana is still very popular and her music still sells. Once again we have been asking Mariah to work with a popular artist and no has been or up and coming artist.

4. We are finally able to see Mariah (after a very long time), work her magic with redoing a remix. Now if it's just added vocals, then I'll be happy but also disappointed, but by the sound of it, is that this will be a completely reworked song.

5. This introduces Mariah to a younger crowd outside of December. Once again we have been asking her to do this.

I can go on, but the point is this, we haven't heard this remix yet, so how can we judge it before we hear it? Though I don't agree with Ariana's actions, we shouldn't criticize a remix we haven't heard yet (the "d" I ride part may not even be in the remix), also let's not be hypocrites, a very young Mariah was also in a similar situation in the past depending on how you look at things (with Tommy being married when he met Mariah). I'm not judging nor pointing fingers and honestly I don't care about what other people do, I'm just trying to make a point.

I think Mariah's team is doing a good job. Get the public on your side, blow up on social media, show up to the Grammy's to appease the music academy (or whatever you call it). Start collaborating with young and established artist. Then drop your own fresh new song and possible album (I hope this last one comes true). I think with the success of Big E last year, it showed that Mariah may not be reigning in the charts nowadays, but her name does pull weight and people will tune in to listen if they can connect to the music.

Ok rant over.

Selfish (105,448) by Tevin from USA
(Thursday 15 February 2024; 21:08)
Wow. I just listened to the Mariah AI version. I didn't like the JT version (sounded boring), but man oh man, Im loving this "Mariah" version. From what I see TikTok is eating this up too. Hopefully Mariah takes note add straight forward simplistic songs to sing, like this on her new album. Some people mentioned it sounds refreshing since there isn't a ton of back ground adlibs or crazy runs going on. My wish is for Mariah's next collaboration to be with JT, redo or do a duet on this song, and release the Yours duet with it as well (that may help people to visit Charmbracelet).

Do you all remember Mariah's song 100%? I randomly started singing this in my head today. I was curious, what were your thoughts on this song, has it changed since you first heard it 14 years ago?

If Mariah is dropping a new album this year, when do you think she should drop her first single off the album (given that Taylor is dropping her album in April, with a new single probably at the beginning of next month)?

Agreed, even Mariah's worst albums (Rainbow and MIAMTEC) imo, still is better quality than a lot of stuff we hear in the industry today.
