Yay or nay? Don't Forget About Us should be re-recorded for a slow jam quiet storm mix. We need something for Valentine's Day. I just tweeted MC.

That makes sense. Her drummer is so good looking. I think Trey lives in Atlanta now.

Larrance Dopson is one of the writers on 8th Grade. He co-wrote the mega hit Boo'd Up with Joella James that launched Ella Mai's career. He primarily works with DJ Mustard. I wonder what was his contribution to 8th Grade. Hopefully, MC has reached out to Joella James. She is very good with coming up melodies.

Why the secrecy (99,506) by Robert-Anthony from United States
(Saturday 22 January 2022; 20:45)
Why do you think MC is being so secret this time about what she is releasing this year? I think that there is a new potential recording deal that she is strategizing and she does not want to lose her contract leveraging power before the deal is sealed. I know on Twitter Spaces she has said several times that, "They get upset with me when I say too much." Could she be referring to Melissa and the executives at Range Media? Whatever she is releasing, will be her most anticipated release of her career. I envision a MC16 double album with The Butterfly Lounge or the Rarities 2 as disc 2. I am hoping for new vinyl in her store including Somebody's Ugly Daughter and Glitter. Yeah, what is up with buying a house in Sandy Springs, GA? Which is not Buckhead but close to it. Just my thoughts.

Re: Article: Is Mariah Carey moving to Buckhead? (99,497) (99,500) by Robert-Anthony from United States
(Saturday 22 January 2022; 11:56)
MC chose Sandy Springs with all the rolling hills and quick access Buckhead. She must be planning to work with London Da Track, Missy Elliot, Sean Garrett, Ne-Yo, Zaytoven, and Drumma Boy. It makes sense to move to where they are since flying them in is not the optimal choice right now.

I added it back to my workout playlist. I was kind of digging him and hearing Circles always reminded me of what could have been. I wonder if MC feels the same about Boy (I Need You) and what could have been with Camron. Oops, did I say that?

You Had Your Chance (99,484) by Robert-Anthony from United States
(Thursday 20 January 2022; 13:26)
Another forgotten gem that added nothing to Charmbracelet. However, what it did showcase was that JD and MC could write a club song. The duo perfected the club song in 2007 with It's Like That. And it was a stone cold winner. I have enjoyed looking back at my Mariah papers this week. Tomorrow I am going to talk about another forgotten gem from Daydream. Who can guess what it is? No one ever talks about this gospel influenced ballad. She wrote this song with all of her heart and soul. Walter A's piano on playing is crazy.

Memoirs (99,482) by Robert-Anthony from United States
(Thursday 20 January 2022; 01:29)
I must say that I love this album. I listen to it all the time. I know that The Dream and Tricky Stewart were bashed for its poor sales, but it was really a well crafted brilliantly produced album. I would love for MC to try it again with another one production team like Mike Will Made It and P-Nasty with Timbaland and Nova Wav sprinkled in. If she only listened to me all the time. Lol.

Impossible (99,478) by Robert-Anthony from United States

Why is Impossible such a minimalist sounding song? I remember one critic described it as that type of song. How many other minimalist sounding songs does MC have in her catalog?

Bill, I took your advice last night added Circles to my workout playlist. Hopefully, when it comes on during my rotation, I will keep moving with my cardio. I added To The Floor as well since I can't stop calling it Tonight. Lol.

Lol. Let me give you the backstory as to why I don't like Circles that much. My best friend in Memphis hooked me up with a friend he was counseling through a tough time. So, we agreed to meet at 12 midnight at Spin Street, the local music shop where I would be waiting in line to purchase TEOM when it was released that night. The guy follows me back to my car and we listen to the CD. Circles comes on and MC's voice cracks on "I just keep going round and round." You know the part. And the guy says, "See, she can't sing any more." Well, after that he said that he had to go. I never heard from him again. He told my best friend that I was too pushy. Do you all think that I am too pushy? So, that's why I can't play Circles anymore. It brings back too many bad memories of that crazy night with that guy. And my best friend believed him and didn't even care to hear my side.

I just got my 10 points.
1. It's Like That
2. We Belong Together
3. Shake It Off
4. Mine Again
5. Say Something
6. Stay The Night
7. One and Only
8. Yours
9. Joy Ride
10. Fly Like A Bird

Get My Number, Tonight, Circles, and I Wish You Knew were just album fillers to me.

Through The Rain/AYNAF (99,461) by Robert-Anthony from United States
(Tuesday 18 January 2022; 02:26)
I was going through some more of my Mariah papers today. Why did Through The Rain stall at #81 and AYNAF at #12 on the Hot 100? TTR failed to resonate with radio and the public like other inspirational songs such as Hero, Make It Happen, One Sweet Day and Vision of Love. It even stalled on the Adult AC chart at #17. Ironically, it was a number #1 dance hit. The Hex Hector/Max Quayle and Full Intention remixes were some of her best dance remixes since Fantasy. I remember MC saying in an interview that Lyor Cohen insisted on an inspirational ballad to be the album's first single because of her personal and professional struggles during the Glitter era. AYNAF should have been a least a top 5 hit. I wonder what is the backstory behind its stall at #12. Maybe Tommy had something to do with it? Or was it just the way it usually was back then with 4th and 5th singles where they don't perform as well as 1st through 3rd singles? Just my thoughts.

Bill, I would like to have known if The Art of Letting Go title had never been leaked in Wal-mart's website, how the album would have been perceived. MIAM was such a crazy title from the start. Also, I would like to know how the title The Art of Letting Go title made it onto Wal-Mart's website anyway. Wasn't there supposed be an original duet with R. Kelly titled I Can't Love U?

Original title for Somewhat Loved? (99,449) by Robert-Anthony from United States
(Monday 17 January 2022; 00:06)
I am looking back at a news article from MCA on 08-10-13 titled Tracklist Revealed for Mariah's new album. Track 5 is The Dream collaboration called Hope Street. I think that it must have been the original title of Somewhat Loved. It's funny that we all have forgotten Somewhat Loved. Do you think it will ever make it on a greatest hits collection? Lol.

More collaboration needed (99,447) by Robert-Anthony from United States
(Sunday 16 January 2022; 21:32)
When I look at the songwriters on the first two singles from Mary J. Blige's new album, I can only hope MC is looking at H.E.R., D'mile, DJ Khaled, Lucky Daye, Denisia Andrews, and Brittney Coney. MC is going to have to shake it up some on MC16 if she is going to even expect some airplay. MJB is going to own February with her new album and her Superbowl performance.

Caution (99,442) by Robert-Anthony from United States
(Sunday 16 January 2022; 03:11)
Caution to me always felt like that album unlike any other MC album. It had a messy rollout, wrong single choices and she bashed it a year later during interviews. It should only have been released in Japan like Monica did All Eyez On Me in 2002. After some personal sorrows, she released After The Storm in 2003.
