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

MC and Big Jim Wright (106,299) by Robert-Anthony from United States
I really think Big Jim Wright helped MC tap into a side of her soulful writing ability that we had never seen before prior to 2005. Songs like Circles, I Wish You Knew, Cry., Camouflage, and FLAB are some of MC's most soulful songs. Have you ever listened Cry. and Camouflage back to back? There is a sad love story told about the break-up Mariah's and Nick's marriage in those two gems. These two gems remind me of 70's R&B band L.T.D.'s Love Ballad and Where Did We Go Wrong? I love all of the vocal flaws in Circles. I Wish You Knew reminds me of why MC's writing skills are impeccable. FLAB reminds me growing up in a Baptist church when the choir director tells the musicians to cut the music because he knows that the song leader is about to take the church "there".

A Daydream release in 2024 (106,293) by Robert-Anthony from United States
I guess should agree and join you Shezz and Mimi. Listening to You're Mine, Triumphant remixes and some JD remixes made think that MC has really had marvelous career. What more does she really have to prove she is the G.O.A.T.?

A Daydream release in 2024 (106,287) by Robert-Anthony from United States
Something deep down inside of me wants that new album experience again. You know when we hear MC has a new album coming out and all of the excitement that goes along with it. I just need to experience that one more time. MC settled into her legend status way too soon for me.

A Daydream release in 2024 (106,284) by Robert-Anthony from United States
It has been a great discussion this week about Taylor and insight into this whole Swifty phenonenon. We can't deny Taylor is riding high off roads paved from our true trailblazer and trendsetter MC. I am really ready for Mimi to comeback one last time with her most successful album since TEOM. I know she has at least one more left in her. Where are you Mike Will Made It? Mimi needs you again.

MC just needs to release a fire album to get recognized by the music industry. She doesn't write the brilliant songs like she used too. If she would find songwriting partners like Madicin (Kenny Lattimore) or Daryl Simmons (Never Forget You) and write some R&B slow jams and love songs, then she would get back on top of the charts. What is it going to take for MC to get back to those brilliant songs?

A Daydream release in 2024 (106,272) by Robert-Anthony from United States
Possibly. But there is not another up and coming female pop artist who can take her place right now. I think she has at least 10 more years of a popularity high. Don't let her star in a major movie with a hit soundtrack. That would add five more years. Lol.

Whitney Houston had Clive Davis behind her during her career to speak to varoius committees.

Mary J. Blige has had a lot of high profile pop duets during her 30 years in the music business. Mary's duets with U2, George Michael, Sting, Elton John, Santana, Ray Charles, Maroon 5, Rod Stewart, Andre Bocelli, and Quincy Jones have broaden her appeal to the music industry executives as a whole. I think the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame committee looks at that too. That is what MC's career has lacked.

A Daydream release in 2024 (106,259) by Robert-Anthony from United States
I often wonder how a Daydream album would sell in 2024 if it was released in 2024. Would it sell a million copies plus during in its first week and break Spotify records? Would Fantasy, One Sweet Day and ABMB break streaming and iTunes records? I picked Daydream because that is when MC's career went into overdrive and her popularity increased. Tortured Poets Department seems to be Taylor Swift's Daydream. Her popularity is so high right now. She could release a David Guetta and Zedd TPD remix album in the Fall and it would sell 1.2 million plus copies too.

Rock & Roll Hall of Fame (106,257) by Robert-Anthony from United States
Lol. I probably should have saved my regular closing emoji for that post. I am just wondering if there is a group of music industry heads who have it out to deny MC of these huge music accomplishments like Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Hot 100 airplay and the Grammys. I won't mention his name though. You know the one who went back to the party looking for MC.

The Celebration completely 100% sold out (106,246) by Robert-Anthony from United States
The audience is having fun alone with MC. She brought out Heidi Klum and Tyra Banks last night. It is funny her first few shows are always rocky and then the rest of them are spot on. I think her perception of how the audience will react to her really causes MC a little anxiety during the first few shows. I am glad her shows are selling out.

TEOM concerts (106,244) by Robert-Anthony from United States
Videos from 4/20 really proves MC is singing live 98% of the time. Her voice has really improved from this time last year. And her tone now is so beautiful with warm and smoothing tones. I hope she gets an album out soon.

Thank you, Shezz. I am going to try to keep hope alive. I hope we will see some type of new release this year. Until then, I am ready for a summer vacation. I have eight more weeks until I can get a break.

Hard truths (106,224) by Robert-Anthony from United States
I truly feel MC never had that "Wow" stage presence. She just wasn't groomed and polished that way. Early performances show MC whose whole stage presence materialized for the audience to focus only on how she used her voice. Tommy never allowed that "Wow" performer element to materialized for MC like singers we would say had that "Wow" stage presence early on during their careers. Singers like Michael Jackson, Janis Joplin, Tina Turner, Prince, Teddy Pendergrass, Usher and Fantasia. These artists could give you a show that you walked away from the venue thinking on the way home, "Wow."

A 2am surprise (106,221) by Robert-Anthony from United States
Has MC ever given the Lambily something like a 2 a.m. surprise on a release day? Taylor Swift is a marketing genius. She knows how to keep her fans excited and broke at the same time. Lol. I guess this is just a different time of Friday release days and using the digital music boom for an artist's advantage. A Tuesday release day unannounced double album would not have had the same effect in 1995. Some record store clerk would have spoiled Taylor's surprise. Oh well, she will dominate the Grammys again next year.

If you are not who we think you are, you sure have been hibernating for good 15 years then. Lol.

RJ., you may be right. Wow, he is just like Sheila on The Bold and the Beautiful. You never know when she may resurface again even after death.

Las Vegas (106,208) by Robert-Anthony from United States
I think MC is just not able to move her voice along notes like she was use to doing. And she is thinking more in her head about executing each note unlike in the 90s when those notes came out with effortlessly. Therefore, her hand is not moving as much as she is singing.

Las Vegas (106,207) by Robert-Anthony from United States
I feel that we just want the album she has said continously that she is working on. I think MC is just telling us things to keep the new music narrative going on and on. We are not getting a new album any time soon. The Las Vegas shows and Christmas is all we are getting this year. Her heart is not into producing a body of work like 20 years. That studio spark is not in her eyes anymore.

Las Vegas (106,196) by Robert-Anthony from United States
I forgot that her accident was during that time. I just watched her 2005 BET Blueprint performance. That hand was just a movin in the air while she was performing ILT and WBT. Mimi, why do think her hand doesn't move as much now? I will let you respond, then I will tell you my reasons why.

Las Vegas (106,192) by Robert-Anthony from United States
Maybe I used the wrong word to describe what seems to me was the start of her popularity and decline on the charts. #Beautiful should have done better on the Hot 100. What caused it to stall at #15 on the chart? It had all the right elements for a monster 6 weeks at #1 type of song.
