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

Emotions formula (104,307) by Robert-Anthony from United States
Great reflection post, Terna. I was just thinking she could revisit the Emotions album with her current voice without all of the vocal acrobatics that made us know that MC had a 5-octave range. I have always thought since its release, Spell My Name was Toni Braxton revisiting her sophomore album, Secrets. So, it worked for Toni. Maybe it could work for MC. I know she has something special coming to the Lambs in 2024. I just don't want 5 songs written with Daniel Moore. I like him as a musician, but not him writing 5 songs with MC that sound like Portrait.

Emotions formula (104,291) by Robert-Anthony from United States
We need another album of Hot AC and R&B ballads, Carole King type of ballads, inspirational bops and a 70s R&B female group sample. That was Emotions. We need another Emotions album.

Would you rather (104,266) by Robert-Anthony from United States
I would rather have a 10 to 12 track album next year. It has been too long since we have had new music. Also, I am curious what she will talk about in the new songs since she has been writing with Daniel Moore. And there is probably a good chance that Roc and Roe will be singing on a track. The Rarities 2 can come in 2025.

I think it is going to happen too. I worried two weeks ago after the first show. Lol. The five TV appearances have helped this year as well. Last weekend and today AIWFCIY was played on the network morning news programs when they returned from a commercial break. Of course, the hosts mentioned the queen of Christmas Mariah Carey.

Who is Jack Harlow? (104,253) by Robert-Anthony from United States
That's right. I don't know how I forgot First Class. That song was on my playlist doing cardio.

Grio performances (104,240) by Robert-Anthony from United States
Her natural alto voice is shining through more when she speaks. Her voice reminds me of her 90s interviews. I think that a vocal coach or Mary Ann told her to limit her intake of alcohol this summer and see how your vocal range returns. It was evidence on most of Caution. I am anticipating that we will get more of her alto range with heavier tones and less belting on the new album.

Who is Jack Harlow? (104,233) by Robert-Anthony from United States
Jack Harlow is popular today because of his song What's Poppin went viral on Tik Tok. Lil Wayne, Tory Lanez, and Da Baby jumped on the remix and reached #2 on the Hot 100. He got a Grammy nomination and XXL Magazine named him apart of the 2020 Freshman class. His new song Lovin On Me is a R&B sample of 1995 Cadillac Dale's song Whatever (Bass Solique) and it is another Tik Tok viral sensation.

Grio performances (104,231) by Robert-Anthony from United States
What a welcome surprise for Jennifer Hudson, Coco Jones and Boyz II Men, and the legendary Miss Patti Labelle to sing for MC. I loved all of their renditions especially Miss Patti's beautiful performance of Love Takes Time. I loved how JHud sang VOL in her own way and making MC smile. Coco Jones seemed nervous and kind of messed up the first verse to me with the wrong lyrics and some humming of the words. Maybe I'm wrong about her performance. No one will ever be able to sing MC's One Sweet Day like her.

Billboard (104,230) by Robert-Anthony from United States
This article right here. After reading about each song and the number of weeks each spent at #1, it kind of adds up for these 15 songs only. That's how I interpreted the article.

Billboard (104,222) by Robert-Anthony from United States
There have only been 15 songs so far this year with Taylor's latest number 1 being Is It Over Now? Only 15 songs this year proves that streaming has really changed the Billboard Hot 100 by songs landed in the number #1 spot and staying for weeks without hardly any radio airplay. AIWFCIY was the first number #1 this year. Will MC end 2023 at number #1 and begin 2024 at number #1? [Webmaster: I think there were more than 15 songs released this year.]

Mariah now most streamed female on Apple Music (104,217) by Robert-Anthony from United States
ABC reported on Nightline last night AIWFCIY has grossed $75 million in sales. It was 60 million two years ago. I take it that at Christmas time people purchase other songs in her catalogue when they buy AIWFCIY.

The sound of MC16 (104,210) by Robert-Anthony from United States
What do you want MC16 to sound like? What producers do you want MC to work with? It has to be another cohesive body of work like Caution. I would love for her to work with Babyface, Bizness Boi, Darhyl Camper, Claude Kelly and Chuck Harmony, Pop and Oak, Wrabel, Akeel Henry, Deputy, Nova Wav and Ryan Tedder.

Billboard performance (104,207) by Robert-Anthony from United States
I am only going to be positive about the Billboard performance. The Lovers and Friends and Global concerts were not good vocally when she didn't lip sync to pre-corded tracks. Overall, she sounds better than she did 6 months ago. Either she had sought vocal training or her weight loss has improved her vocal abilities. I feel hopeful for MC to get her new album completed in 2024.

She has stopped using her hands when she performs live too. Her career has changed since E=MC2. Let's hope Usher (with LA. Reid influencing him) asks MC to join him on the Superbowl stage. The Superbowl event would add another accomplishment for MC. I believe it will happen because Usher mentioned her name because of the possibility that MC will be featured on a new album.

Mariah Barbie (104,201) by Robert-Anthony from United States
Amazon has some for $117 sale price. Four thousand have been sold on Amazon in the past month. Quite pricey at a regular price of $139.

Merry Christmas (LP) (104,193) by Robert-Anthony from United States
Great gesture Weston, but the general public doesn't even know MC released Merry Christmas II You. First, Def Jam's promotion of it was very poor. L.A. Reid was not happy to hear MC wanted to do a second Christmas album. Second, you can hardly find a used CD copy of it during the holidays. Def Jam didn't produce many copies of the CD. Since 2020, you can find the vinyl version more in the stores. Finally, Merry Christmas will always out perform the sequel because of AIWFCIY.

Oops, I misread your post for Merry Christmas II You. Too many glasses of Trader Joe's Two Buck Chuck.

Never sung in her life (104,182) by Robert-Anthony from United States
Lol. I thought I was in the Why You Mad club all by myself. Future should have been on the remix to close it out. He could have rapped a bar about Ciara. I hate that I missed a chance to purchase a fan made 45 vinyl of the remix.

That could explain why she was so quiet on social media after the Lovers and Friends concert. Also, the picture in August with Roc and Roe showed her looking different like she was recovering from something.

Andrew, put down the bubbly and take a nap. Just a little too much Monty Python humor for me this morning. I am over here on this side of the pond dealing with a blown head gasket on my 2004 Lexus.

Never sung in her life (104,159) by Robert-Anthony from United States
MC is a survivor. I was thinking today that the music business is a cruel industry whereas only a few artists have careers after their sophomore album. MC surpassed all of that and made it to 32 years in the music business. I am going to show more understanding and compassion with my comments from this day forward.
