Not really. MC's and Babyface vocals are set to a different beat/track compared to the original.

Great observation. Giving My Life was probably one of the first songs recorded. This is how I think the last 4 years went down in the studio from the first song recorded to the last song recorded.
1. GTFO
2. With You
3. Giving Me Life
4. The Distance
5. One Mo Gen Poo Bear Sessions in Spring 2018
6. 8th Grade
7. Runway
8. A No No
9. Portrait
10. Stay Long Love You
11. Caution

I used to do the same thing last week until I just focused on the chorus during an accidental play after 8th Grade. And just last night, I heard the short breakdown towards the end of the song. It really is a feel good song as MC said. It could be one of songs she chooses for the Caution World Tour set list because it doesn't have a lot of key changes. She better perform Giving Me Life as the opener. I love this song now. We need a mashup with The Roof. It is definitely The Roof Part 2.

GTFO - the greatest album opener (86,452) by Robert-Anthony from United States

Before Caution came out, I was concerned how GTFO was going to fit into the context of Caution. GTFO is MC's most aggressive track ever. But after two weeks, GTFO is MC's greatest album opener.

This is one collaboration no one hardly talks about. One of Babyface's greatest songs and MC did the vocal arrangements. There are four remixes out there by Soul Shock & Karlin, Raphael Saadiq and producer extraordinaire Timbaland. Timbaland's remix is the best one. And I have all four remixes in my collection.

Re: The promo tour (WWHL, Fallon, GMA) (86,383) (86,429) by Robert-Anthony from United States

This week has to be the best start to a new era since the TEOM era. I really feel some great things are going to happen in the next few weeks to end 2018. I hope MC picks Joseph Kahn, Diane Martel or Billie Woodruff to direct her next video. Has anybody noticed the ad libs and background harmonies on 8th Grade? I can't wait to hear 8th Grade on vinyl. I have these vintage 80s speakers that really bring out the full recording sound from my vinyl records.

Webmaster, I am so sorry. I am really good at reading the news section before I post. It dawned on me after I posted that I didn't check the news section first. Can you forgive me? I didn't mean to make you mad at me. I will be more diligent in checking before I post. Again I am sorry for my stupid mistake. Thank you for MCArchives.

Rolling Stone has a new article on the web about Mariah taking back control for Caution. This article really explains how Caution came to be in our hands today. Checkout it out. I wish I knew how to link it to my post. Somebody tell me please.

Re: A lengthy meditation on the album (86,306) (86,340) by Robert-Anthony from United States

I reread your post again. I can understand how you feel, but every artist has to evolve as the music industry changes. MC is just leading the evolution of R&B music into the pop arena. Who's still in the game like MC from 25 years ago? Let's see what type music she releases when she is 50 years old. How much will her voice have changed from 2018?

Let's look at Caution's as Mariah Carey's debut album. I try not to think about her as artist who was once this huge vocal powerhouse from the 90's whose pengame was well ahead of her peers. She is putting out R&B music that is filled with hip hop lyrics and rapid repetitive style singing. This is what she is most comfortable with at this point in her life. I believe she is going to bring something different when she performs the album on the Caution World Tour. I am predicting huge things are coming in 2019 like Caution Part 2, a making of Caution DVD, and a DVD of the Caution World Tour. We have to hear those JD tracks in 2019. Can you imagine the things her team can do to the stage set and dancer performances on this intimate tour? Remember how good she sounded on the intimate Angel's Advocate tour. The 90's MC is gone from her mind at this point. Embrace the R&B Mariah because she is here to stay.

Re: Caution next single should be? (86,295) (86,303) by Robert-Anthony from United States

MC needs to move fast with sending The Distance to Rhythmic and Top 40 radio stations. And send A No No remix with Lil Kim and Cardi B to Urban and Hip Hop. If she doesn't do this, Caution is going to fade after Christmas CD sales.

I mentioned last week that a physical copy would be hard to find in many retailers. The Target store I purchased mine from in the DFW area had to be asked by me to put it on the shelf. Call your local Barnes and Nobles or check back at Target since they will be selling Caution for $7.00 through Black Friday according to Mariah's Twitter. Epic must be sending more copies to Target stores for Black Friday. FYE in the malls has copies for $9.99.

This song called 8th Grade is killing me with every listen. MC and Timbaland creative a song that so darn good. And Portrait evokes MC and Big Jim at the piano.

After this promo week (86,274) by Robert-Anthony from United States
(Tuesday 20 November 2018; 01:50)
What is next after this promo week for Caution? I was hoping for a second single annoucement this week. I just hope the Caution momentum doesn't stop. Too bad we don't have a Touch My Body right now to drive album sales and radio spins. Maybe a plan will surface we dont know about yet.

I think you are right. Blood Orange is featured on Tinashe's Bet as Devonte Hynes. The song has an amazing breakdown with an awesome guitar solo just like Giving Me Life. Devonte Hynes produced Bet as Blood Diamonds. So funny. I wonder why the name change. Maybe because of the human interest story in Africa having to do with killing of people because of diamond mines. There was a movie made about it.

Caution album (86,208) by Robert-Anthony from United States
(Monday 19 November 2018; 04:25)
This album gets better with every listen. I think the albums really kicks in after A No No. A real slow jam quiet storm type of feel to Caution. 8th Grade makes wonder why in the heck did it take 20 something years for MC to get a Timbaland track on her album. If there is a Part 2 next March, will it be 10 brand new tracks or a deluxe edition with additional tracks? I am anxious to hear those aggressive tracks JD spoke about and any additional Timbaland, No ID, and Poo Bear tracks. I really hate when Portrait concludes with a such soft climax. It leaves me wanting more from Caution.

Why does Blood Orange receive a feature credit? Is that one of his requirements as a producer to get a feature credit? He has the same feature credit on John Legend's latest song. The title slips my mind right now.

Re: Portrait (86,151) (86,153) by Robert-Anthony from United States
(Saturday 17 November 2018; 23:31)
She got very emotional towards the end of the song. If you listen closely at the end, you can hear where she is about to cry. The voice will crack when you are about to cry. Portrait is one her saddest songs ever. One of my album favorites right now. It makes me wanna cry because I can understand what she feeling in the song. I walk around everyday feeling like people and family members don't like me or understand me. I can tell that I rub some of you the wrong way. I am sorry if I do, I don't mean to. I overcompensate in a lot things that I do or say to make people like me. I reflect everyday on the portrait of my life. Please don't judge me.

So true. I hope MC does more songs with Lido and Skillrex. These two have given MC a fresh new sound. And it works with her current voice. Runway is pure brilliance. I have never heard a more perfect mix of R&B and Pop. Can you imagine the dance remixes? Wow.

Thank you. I see your point of view. I was just hoping for a huge bop in Stay Long Love You. I could barely understand Gunna. It will have to grow on me.
