About Robert-Anthony from United States: I have been a Lamb since 1990. I know Mariah. I love her music. I breathe her music.

Madonna confession (106,902) by Robert-Anthony from United States
I have never mentioned this before, but I was a huge Madonna fan growing up in the 80s. I was mesmerized by her style, songs, quick rise to fame, and videos. I wanted Madonna and Sean Pean to last as a married couple, but the paparazzi ruined their marriage being a young couple. They were the first paparazzi couple who were followed by the paparazzi. Papa Don't Preach is my all time favorite Madonna video. Madonna changed after their marriage did not work. Her music and style changed too. She started pushing more boundaries within society's norms. I stopped buying her albums after Like a Prayer. Erotica was not the same Madonna I liked growing up in the 80s. Thankfully, MC came along in 1990 to allow me to start new female artist collection.

Infinity video (106,900) by Robert-Anthony from United States
I think it is a fun video. I guess my expectations for a video are really low. Videos that are simple live performances like Madonna's Dress You Up or MJ's Dirty Diana keep my attention more than high budget videos.

Mariah's been mum of late ... oh no please no (106,899) by Robert-Anthony from United States
MC must have gotten a burst of energy to get MC16 completed before her Vegas shows start again.

MC clocked part 2 (106,895) by Robert-Anthony from United States
If MC could just get back to these type of performances.

Infinity video (106,894) by Robert-Anthony from United States
The various live performances shots, different model/actor scenes, and the Touch My Body reference mansion scenes made Infinity a great video. It was a playful video just like Touch My Body. Don't you see that way?

MIH in Manila 2003 (106,889) by Robert-Anthony from United States
MC is at her best here. Now I understand why the Charmbracelet tour really showcased how great her voice was during this tour.

Infinity video (106,884) by Robert-Anthony from United States
You can't deny that the video for Infinity is one her most well thought out videos. Probably better than GTFO and With You. Those two videos received mediorce video treatments.

By the way, Tayla Parxx, Infinity co-writer, made me watch the video today because she is hotter than a firecracker at Normani for not giving her proper album credit for the song Insomina which she co-wrote with Normani, Victoria Monet, Brandy, and Stargate. However, Normani delivers Tayla another low blow by giving her songwriting credit in a interview this week and said that she hadn't seen Tayla in awhile.

Mariah's been mum of late ... oh no please no (106,877) by Robert-Anthony from United States
Lol. Randy it is an easy way for her to make a lot of money in a short amount of time. MC is going to do something to celebrate 30 years of AIWFIY and Merry Christmas this year. By the way, has anyone noticed that her net worth has decreased from 500 million to 350 million according to various websites? Not releasing an album in 6 years, has really affected her net worth. I hope MC16 is one of the biggest sellers of 2025. It is going to be very interesting next year for album sales if Taylor Swift does not take a break from releasing new music after her Eras Tour.

E=MC2 off on the beaten path (106,865) by Robert-Anthony from United States
I have always wondered why Bye Bye, I Stay In Love, and I'll Be Lovin U Long Time all failed to have the same top 10 success as Touch My Body. I just can't pinpoint why pop radio didn't give those singles the same airplay impressions as Touch My Body. Were they weak single choices or pop radio was moving away from playing R&B songs on pop radio? There was a significant shift in pop radio from 2008-2010.

Lucky Daye (106,853) by Robert-Anthony from United States
His current #1 Urban AC song, That's You, was co-written by Bruno Mars. I believe MC has reached out to Lucky Daye because he didn't like my X collaboration post on June 29th like he did my two previous posts earlier this year and last year. She probably told him don't let anybody know we are going to collaborate. His tour starts July 11th through August 28th. I am sure they have already collaborated because of his tour and The Celebration of Mimi shows

So far, we have rumored collaborations with Solange, Anderson Paak, Bruno Mars and Max Martin.

Lucky Daye (106,847) by Robert-Anthony from United States
Do you think R&B singer, songwriter, and producer Lucky Daye could be that one collaborator MC needs to bring MC16 closer to being finished? This man is a brilliant artist in the way he crafts his songs. His latest album, Algorithm, is a masterpiece. Take a listen to Soft, Mary, and this interview.

May Céline inspire Mariah? (106,842) by Robert-Anthony from United States
MC's facade (the jokes, the rambling during interviews, and her childhood trauma) that she has built and uses to cope, is going to make it hard to drop her diva antics. It is her shtick now after of these years.

Vacation everyone? (106,831) by Robert-Anthony from United States
Best of wishes with your promotion, Xavier. I will have to check out Traveler this summer.

Residency returns (106,829) by Robert-Anthony from United States
I would like to see a couple of special guests like Brandy and David Morales.

Vacation everyone? (106,828) by Robert-Anthony from United States
Yes, Shezz. The Bold and the Beautiful is not as good as it was when Stephanie was last on the show. Next year this time may be the last season if William Bell's son Bradley doesn't start writing better storylines during the 2024-2025 season. CBS made him use the show's one year renewal option this year.

I am predicting that MC is going to drop the first single late January 2025. It is going to be an uptempo song produced with Bruno Mars and Anderson Paak.

Vacation everyone? (106,823) by Robert-Anthony from United States
I have never seen the board so quiet before for two weeks in a row. Is everyone on vacation or just watching The Bold and the Beautiful summer mystery arc? I am sure we are going to find out who killed Tom before anything new happens with MC. Lol.

New remixes (106,814) by Robert-Anthony from United States
I sure do hope so. Her creativity has been on a creative high lately. I believe the Lambs won't be disappointed about what MC has been cooking in the studio. We know she has had 6 years to give us a Thriller type of album. Lol, Edward.

The BET Awards are this Sunday. Maybe MC will join Muni Long on stage for the Made For Me remix.

Mariah is hip hop (106,811) by Robert-Anthony from United States
Doug E. Fresh talks about MC at 3:35. I didn't want you to watch his whole interview. Lol.

Mariah is hip hop (106,810) by Robert-Anthony from United States
Irresistable (West Side Connection) played today on my workout playlist. I had to play it a second time because I really enjoyed it for first time 22 years later. To be honest, I would always skip it because I just did not like the collaboration. However, now I understand why Doug E. Fresh said this is the reason why Mariah is hip hop.

Tony Moran (106,808) by Robert-Anthony from United States
I just realized that Tony Moran of The Latin Rascals (Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood) remixed DFAU. I wonder what made MC commission him to do the remix for DFAU. DFAU is MC's only official double vinyl white cover 12 inch.

According Wikipedia, his remixography is impressive. He and Albert Cabrera remixed Duran Duran's Notorious too. It's funny that I am mentioning Tony Moran because I have been on a nonstop mission this summer to visit all of my 12 inch dance vinyl records lately thanks to the Portrait (Hopeful Child Remix). CeCe Peniston's and ABC's dance remixes were hot back in day. Anyway, longer dance remixes make my workouts more enjoyable. Lol. I am rambling now. Bye.

Impressive debut (106,802) by Robert-Anthony from United States
This article demonstrates that Tommy had to defend MC because when he discovered her he knew MC's talent was going to be in the same league as [Barbra] Streisand and Whitney Houston. His tone in the article is that of a renowned manager and recording company president who saw MC during the Crustella era in [desperate] need of a new manager and team. We can't deny he knew how to make MC into a platinum selling recording artist from the beginning. His expertise to guide and launch her debut album and assemble the best team players made Mariah Carey the album an impressive debut. A debut album like Mariah Carey has never happened since 1990. No other female artist since 1990 has ever had a debut album like Mariah Carey. Despite how MC feels about Tommy Mottola and his treatment of her, I wonder does MC think about how impressive her debut was? She really never talks anymore about her debut era or Ben Marguiles.

#1 Relevance, new album (106,798) by Robert-Anthony from United States
Randy, MC16 is going to determine if MC will continue to record albums or just have Vegas residences and Christmas shows for the rest of her singing career. It will be interesting to see how everything rolls out after the album announcement.

Rap features (106,797) by Robert-Anthony from United States
Do you think MC is done with having rappers on her albums? I don't know how she could be taken seriously on her next album with rap features at 55 years old. Duets and vocal features is the way she should go for MC16. If she goes with some rap features, critics are not going to find it a step in the right direction at her age.
