Mariah Carey is my favorite artist ever. Fave Era - The Emancipation of Mimi

I'm so upset right now. Are we listening to the same performance here? Mariah really struggles on both songs she performed. She sounded arid, really hoarse and just all over the place and latetly it seems switching into the high notes is kinda a saver of a totally horrendous performance which is what this was. If this is the way she's sounding now makes me wonder what kinda vocals are gonna be on the album.

Mariah Carey and TAOLG (39,977) by Terna from Nigeria
(Sunday 24 November 2013; 18:12)
[...] I deduce that this song is about Tommy. She talked about a certain emotion being strong and present on the track when she was interviewed on CNN. Well, its definitely [...] I sense as I listen, [...] too. It's just as [...] as the whole Memoirs album was. Tommy must've hurt her real bad for her to still be dwelling on it after all this time. She even seems different now. That carefree spirit she had kinda like a child is not really there anymore, she even said so herself something about the Industry.

It is stunning, from the melody, to her vocal performance and the old school production, just wow. And that climax is everything, only Mariah has the ability to make you feel the music deep down.

Now that's what I call #Beautiful. Exactly 2 more weeks to go guys. Notice how "The Art of Letting Go" is written in her own handwriting, a first I think, not sure though.

Mariah's signature song (39,402) by Terna from Nigeria
(Friday 4 October 2013; 18:04)
In my opinion, is "Hero". It's also the song she's performed the most and most people that don't necessarily like or even know her just automatically know that song almost as if it's a good old regular hymn sung in church. Quite baffling too. If that's not the definition of an evergreen, I don't what is.

Worth the wait (39,353) by Terna from Nigeria

It's Mariah Carey we're talking about here guys. It's always worth the wait when Mariah sorta disappears from the public eye working on new music, forgotten The Emancipation Of Mimi already? Chill, she knows what she is doing. I have 100% faith in her. She's gonna bring it like never before. Major amunition as Bryant said. Lol.

Mariah Carey's vocal style and influence (39,329) by Terna from Nigeria
(Thursday 26 September 2013; 19:58)
Ariana Grande, Tynisha Keli and Tori Kelly, though the latter two not that well known yet, are a clearcut example of just how much Mariah's singing and vocal style has heavily influenced the younger generation. Tynisha's "I Wish You Loved Me" and Tori's "Dear No One" have Mariah written all over them. I was pleasantly suprised. From the songs' arrangements to the vocal layering and background vocals, listening to them is definately a throwback to a classic Mariah Carey track. Wish you guys check them out and tell me what you think. Though i should fore warn you that they aren't big voiced singers like Mariah though, she's one of a kind in that department. Lol.

It felt good to see Billboard acknowledge this masterpiece from Mariah. I have been playing it a lot too lately. Though I disagree with their review of "Never forget You", it's actually a standout track in my opinion and one of her best vocals. Babyface and Mariah make magic.

Special K, Erica, Joachim (39,160) by Terna from Nigeria
(Saturday 31 August 2013; 19:27)
Special K, for real? I didn't know that was your jam off TEOM, I still don't like it though lol. Erica, could that be "MTV Presents Mariah Carey"? I recall she sang songs from Charmbracelet wearing a black gown and a jacket at some point, "Through the rain" was flawless I might add. I hope that helps. Joachim, I beg to differ. "Vision of love" is Mariah's Magna Carta. The song is in a league of its own, though I now get where you're coming from about skipping it lol. I do love that song, though it speaks volumes to me everytime I hear it. "Without you" and the "Other hand" are just ok songs to me, but I love the live versions at Proctor's Theatre much more than the studio version.

Skipped songs (39,145) by Terna from Nigeria
(Friday 30 August 2013; 2:12)
That horrendous "To The Floor" song off TEOM. (What was she thinking? I can actually count the number of times i've played it. lol.) And the whole E=MC2 album with the exception of "Touch my body", "I wish you well", "Last kiss", "I'll be loving you long time" and "Bye bye". Funny enough I agree with Chase on the feeling of hapharzardness you get with both Rainbow and E=MC2, like they were rushed and just throw together with a lot of fillers, but Rainbow fairs much better than E=MC2 which in my opinion is Mariah's weakest offering so far.

Fave unreleased song (38,602) by Terna from Nigeria
(Sunday 7 July 2013; 6:57)
"Slipping Away" without a doubt. It was sheer bliss when I discovered the track in the summer of 2001, admist all that noise about her so called breakdown. I still play it often, even today.

I call it as I see it. When you talk of Mariah Carey, it's her voice first and foremost, before any other secondary aspect about her, like her songwriting and production. I'm guessing you have seen the very recent Independence Day celebration clip? Lol. Nobody's saying she's an alcoholic, but when you have a voice as she does, that's basically an instrument; in which you've built an entire career and brand off on, it would be wise to take care of it, or don't you think? And that does not include drinking alcohol of any sort as regularly as she does. Also health wise, it's not the best.

Her voice (38,565) by Terna from Nigeria
(Thursday 4 July 2013; 16:39)
It's a case of neglect, nothing more. There are a few factors: The champagne (I think Eminem was right, our songbird has a vice). She doesn't always warmup, either hence the cracking and "all over the place" registers. When she does do it right, cutting down the champagne, warmups and breathing exercises, you get that full sonorous sound ala "Almost Home". But most damaging is definitely the champagne. Remember how at the end of Wise Girls she had to be appeased with a gift by the other two actresses? Now what was that gift again? That I bet wasn't part of the script. Lol.

What Grammy performance are you talking about? The 2006 one where she did We Belong Together and segued into Fly Like A Bird? That was 100 percent live. I suggest you watch it again. Her adlibs are even different on the Grammy performance and more raw. So Mariah lips, big deal. All the others do it too. It's not the end of the world. I'd rather see she does it once in awhile instead of singing live every single time. As a singer you save your voice and use it only when necessary, that's your primary instrument.

The final big note was indeed big and that look afterwards priceless. I loved how she giggled after the soft falsetto coo just before the remix came in lol. She's suddenly so youthful, vibrant and full of life again, the best she's ever looked. I am one proud fan right now.

(Tuesday 7 May 2013; 15:02)
Very infectious and memorable song. The beat, vocals and harmonies are on point. I love it. I also get where that reviewer who cited Dreamlover was coming from. It sounds retro and kinda like the Stax recordings of the '70's production wise. I think Mariah's got a hit on her hands. I listened to it only once, went through the day to see if I could recall its hook with just one listen, lets just say I hummed the song all day. Lol. I think the hashtag's cool and kinda also innovative in terms of using Twitter to promote it. That made the song trend worldwide in just a few hours. Somone here referred to the duo as "Mimiguel". Lol. That made me crack up.

Ok, just a shoutout to Mariah, also to acknowledge the anniversary of this masterpiece. This marked the end of bad times for her and also for us, her lambs. Even nature seemed to acknowledge the release, because exactly a year later on this same day there was a worldwide solar eclipse lol. Always made me wonder, did Mariah's voice cause that? Lol. Enjoy your day everyone.

Mariah's lambs (37,298) by Terna from Nigeria
(Saturday 23 February 2013; 19:20)
Mariah has the most devoted fans in the world period. I know I have been. And heck, I aint even in the United States. Forget Rihanna's navy, Gaga's monsters or Nicki's barbs; the lambs rule. Once you're a Mariah fan, I don't think you can just push her aside after awhile and move on. You keep coming back, because you've found it. She's the real deal. Eventually you form a deeper connection to her and her music, and get to understand her as a person. So I find it rather insultive to say she has apathetic or fairweather fans. That's just an opinion and a wrong one at that.

I literally have goosebumps right now. The Lambily's gonna eat this one up. Woaw. "Almost home" is easily Mariah's 19th No. 1. I think she has chemistry with Stargate. It's a very current sound, but still has that Mariah Carey flavour which makes it distinct. Look out for that all too familiar siren. The voice is back indeed, with a fiery vengeance.

Mariah's not Rihanna and Rihanna's definitely not Mariah. One's an artist with raw talent who got to where she is today based on that undeniable talent, the other's just a commercial artist with no artistic direction designed to sell records and notch in as many number 1's as possible. Having "artistic" videos as you put it is part of the equation to move units. PS: There is absolutely nothing wrong with the Triumphant video.
