My Prayer, Workin Hard (Remix), Do You Think Of Me (103,404) by jaker20 from US
(Saturday 9 September 2023; 23:34)
These are the new ones I haven't heard of that I like the most. I hope this is a taste of more that is hidden in the vault. Funny I was just listening to C&C's first album and I definitely hear that chemistry there in Workin Hard (Remix), the original not so much though. I prefer the remix. My Prayer and Do You Think Of Me sounds like classics to me.

Dreamlover definitely needs a new remix and it will be just as big as Fantasy. Because the Def Def club version does not hit as hard. The public needs to be re-introduced to Dreamlover gem in a big way, ala Free Guy remix, or maybe bring in the Pnau to re-interpret the song and I definitely see it being a big hit again.

All the songs in Proctor are some of her best live recordings, and I wish they were released at the time, and they would have been as big as the MTV ones.

All in all, I really love the 30th anniversary edition. Which makes me excited about what else she's been hiding lol. For me, the newer version of Hero is also love. It hits a bit harder for me. It's a proof that it's not all about the vocals, I think she felt it more in the revival version. And then the a cappella of Music Box, chills. Mariah I love you. There will never be a Mariah in the history of music.

How Mariah's "Dreamlover" changed dance remixes (103,237) by jaker20 from US
(Monday 21 August 2023; 21:27)
It's Dreamlover's turn to go viral and bring this beautiful and great song to the new generation.

This is really the song that brought Mariah's career into a new level, from R&B to global pop. At that point, she had 6 number ones, and if this song didn't take off like it did, Music Box would not have become one of the biggest albums in history. This song brought her from Paul Abdul level of success, to Beatles level of success. Horray for Dreamlover.

Maybe January would be the right time. Every year since AIWFCIY reached number 1, Mariah goes viral at that time of the year (BIR and Fantasy, IAW, etc.), because after the holidays, the awareness on Mariah's catalog is at its a high point. So she needs a post-holiday release plan or something.

Good Lord, just enjoy the show (102,713) by jaker20 from US

I'm sorry for causing drama, I knew as soon as I clicked submit, I regretted it immediately. You all have the right to criticize MC, but sometimes the words so extra. The suggestion that she has to get a surgery is a bit much, but I know you have every right to say what you want.

I was just disappointed. I enjoyed the show, and then when I come here, it's all negative. And it is the same all the time. Maybe I am just not getting it. Maybe I am living in another dimension. But some lambs are just happy to see Mariah, and maybe I have low standards lol, and then each time after that, you come here and it's all negative.

I already know that her voice is not the same. So I don't have these high standards, so I just enjoy the music and seeing her out and performing on stage having fun with everyone is all that matters. I'm sorry again, I didn't mean to be harsh.

They do this every year. [censored] And I'm not saying that to be shady. It is a fact. These same posters run to make these kinds of thread each time it's like a broken record, it is actually kind of sad. Imagine telling someone to get surgery instead of just clicking log-out. This is the level of entitlement these people have.

It's always the same, I enjoy watching it, then you come here and it's the same copy-paste posts from 6 months ago. What is new here? Nothing. Mariah's voice isn't the same. People are there to celebrate her music, to be with her on the event, with other lambs, and have fun and joyous. These guys hold a microscope to see if she is lipping. How sad. It is 2023, no one cares. If you want her to sing to your level of expectations, go watch American Idol or some singing competition, or slip those records and CDs from 30 years ago.

Ps, did you see how people are dragging Katy Petty for her performance during the coronation last night? Same energy. [the rest or this message is censored]

Where are Mariah's songs from the vault? (102,493) by jaker20 from US
(Thursday 6 April 2023; 20:07)
Where are those songs that she claim to exist? Where are they? Heck, what is she even doing as an artist right now?

I'm glad she's happy and collecting coins during the holidays and barely doing anything else for the rest of the year, but it's sad she's barely doing anything anymore. She is lowkey lazy.

I mean Elton John is 20 years older than her and is barely singing on his collabs and people eat it up. Because you know why? Because that's what he does, he's an artist, he creates music, he collaborates, he has ideas that he puts into his art. He's not a wine merchant or selling liquor or perfume. Is Mariah trying to be Rihanna?

Mariah can literally just whisper throughout a song and do some creative samples of her hits, and it will give lambs something to stan and follow her with, and she can't even do that.

I mean her giving Its A Wrap some attention brought back Memoirs to the new gen that it's literally her top most streamed album right now. All she needs to do is something. The bar for her to do something, anything as a artist is so low, and she can't even do that. Heck, she can barely walk.

I'm so annoyed.

Die For You (102,315) by jaker20 from US

I'm not a chart expert, but I think BB count remixes all the time. The only difference is who gets credited, which has a different rule. The rule is that the remix has to sell more than the original (or I think there's a specific ratio), for the featured artist to get credited.

For example, Mariah wasn't credited for Latto's BER last year. In spite of her contribution actually helping the song immensely. If it wasn't for her remix version, the song wouldn't get to the top 10, nor become a big hit that it was.

Shake It Off. The song was released way too close to WBT, otherwise it would have gone to no.1. Or maybe she didn't know WBT would linger for that long.

With that said, I don't know how much a remix really helps a song during that time. This remix to push a song in the charts is only recent and feels really scammy.

I think there was that opportunity last year with Latto and BER but it wasn't rolled out properly.

I said last year that if someone can turn a modern version of Dreamlover into a sample, the same way Latto and her team twisted Fantasy (and Mariah herself sampled Tom Tom Club's version), and then have a remix of it ready to go, it would be a huge hit. Sort of a BER but in reverse.

But ideas like these needs talented collaborators, which I hope Mariah would be more open to. Frankly Mariah's best collaborators right now are Roc & Roe. They make her look at the world differently and bring her to the modern times.

I had thought her partners will bring that kind of influence and something something inspiration to her life, but Nick Cannon turned out to be a loser, and her current beau has no creative bone in his body.

I definitely think she's got a lot songs in the vault that were supposed to go into Caution. The return of Memoirs and Flowers from Miley whose career was supposedly over just shows anything is possible. It is just a right song and right timing. I would like Mariah do something like Love Me Like You Do or Diamonds. I really love A No No and I wouldn't be surprised that goes viral at some point.

I think Caution paved the way to AIWFC's resurgence in some way and eventually topping the charts for the first time. It opened this generation's minds that she is a creative artist.

I agree. With Rihanna's lack of effort performance, Mariah can definitely do better. I remember that "It's Like That" performance in BET. She likes that queen glamour spectacle. Mimi can even lip better, she's so good at it, that sometimes you can't even tell. Rihanna didn't seem to care, like at all. So yes, I'm here for it.

It is Mariah's most streamed album just shows how much hunger there is for new music from the queen of music chanteuse. That it's occured shortly after the holidays is not a coincidence. PS My Love is a bop. Mariah has deep catalog gems. You just have to be open minded.

Memoirs is underrated (102,122) by jaker20 from US

Lambs paid dust to The Rarities just a few years ago which had a few cute gems, while last year she had a global hit with BER which is partly a remix of a catalog, so I kind of get the frustration of putting out new music in this industry landscape. But yes I agree, I think she could still pull some hits if she put her creativity. I mean who would have thought Miley having a comeback. She's been bombing these last few years. I thought she's done, now she's got a massive song.

Well I disagree. They are still accessible Mariah songs, they are still very pop and can have a second life with a few cute viral moments here and there. With the Gen Z and Alpha, they will dig it because they still fresh. Obsessed did go viral a few years ago because it has a timeless chorus. In fact I listen to E=MC2 more than Emancipation. Now there is about a dozen songs I listen to regularly between that and Memoirs. Emancipation is undoubtedly a masterpiece, but are you really going to listen to it every day for 15 years? That is the beauty of Mariah's catalog, there's still so much to explore because some of them didn't necessarily explore when they were released initially.

I find H.A.T.E.U to be absolutely haunting, Standing O has a really great beat, and I used to hate Angels Cry and I bet if she lends it to a show it can have a huge revival. It sounds timeless.

Absolutely. But with each passing year it becomes more and more difficult and with the state of her voice, she can no longer pick and choose which song will be her next hit. However, I was just imaging that Love Me Like You Do was her song. I think something like that could be a hit her. I also think that BER would have been a bigger hit for her and Latto if it was the main version that was released. I think she still have plenty of options if she chooses to act on them.

I think Mariah should accept that duet offer and snatch that 20th no.1. With all the controversy, Mariah should reconcile with her around September and generate publicity for the supposed "feud" turned duet lol. Mariah's C(BPCH) version itself is getting more and more popular every year, it just needs a little push.

There's a few other songs Mariah could duet with, like she did with AIWFCIY duets with so many artists over the years. Lambs might not have noticed the duet with Justin Bierber reintroduced the song in a big way to a lot of people 12 years ago, and she should do the same, maybe for either C(BPCH) or another song, because I don't think the Hey Santa duets with Ariana and JHud worked so well. I still love it though.

Article: Is Mariah Carey lying about creation of hit song? (101,968) by jaker20 from US
(Tuesday 27 December 2022; 16:57)
He is such a liar. Even his interviews, he can't say straight up that he wrote a single word on it. He's talking around it, oh he played this, he played that, he collabed with Mimi, yada yada. He himself said that it was Mariah who would sing "I don't want a lot for Christmas" which became the main melody. He probably just hummed "dadda dada, hmm hmm" and said he co-wrote it. That is because he can't.

It is important for Mariah to tell these stories, to tell the inspiration for the song, because that is what separates her from Walter. Mariah is a story-teller, she tells stories about her youth, about her Christmas experience, and how she loves the season. And all that contributes to the genius of the song.

Inspiration is very important to ownership. Walter has been talking for decades and can't come up with any, because he had none. Does he even like Christmas? Lol.

You know, he is from the time when men controls how women gets credit, and we are better off forgetting people like that.

It is not a coincidence that this chapter of her career is turning out to be another huge one, and she's just getting started. Every year, the song gets bigger and bigger.

It's because when you strip out the melisma and all that vocal acrobatics that many lambs adore, but many in the public actually despise, the true magic is revealed: the music.

We get to focus on the music. It's always been about the music and enjoying everything about it, I can go to a Mariah show, and enjoy just that, in whatever form Mariah's voice is in, does not make her any less than, or enjoy the show any less.

AIWFIY is on its path for Song of the Decade.
