Similarity between Big Energy Remix and yes, and? (105,686) by Mimi L. from Empower Your Highlighter
(Friday 23 February 2024; 15:38)
Honestly I was thinking the same. In both instances they were together and could have easily done a longer video or at least have a little chat talking about the collaboration and what it means to them. Ariana could have talked about how the collaboration came to be, why they decided on this song. Mariah could have talked about her love for remixes and why she decided to join Ariana on a song that casual listeners wouldn't associate with her usual music. They could have also done small videos of just them playing fun games to promote the video like "who knows who better" or pop culture quizzes (both of them are big pop culture experts). Then they could have released these videos every other day to keep engagement. It's honestly a shame. Mariah posted a small video yesterday promoting singing the chorus. But I'm shocked that Ariana's team dropped the song like it's hot. Like after the first day there was a single mention of the release not even a story. I know she's trying to sell an album but why not simultaneously put spotlight on this song to keep the engagement ?

New album (105,672) by Mimi L. from Empower Your Highlighter
(Thursday 22 February 2024; 17:36)
JWho apparently spent 20 million of her own money to create a visual album. Now I haven't seen the visuals neither have I heard the album so I don't know much about it. I hear it's average but that's a really ambitious project. It didn't do great sales wise but like I said still ambitious. The way Mariah writes her songs sometimes you can envision them (like BGK, Babydoll, Crybaby etc) so I would really love a visual album from Mariah. Where she hires creative people to help her out with strong visuals. I wish she'd be willing to take that ambitious project on. Also I was hoping MC releases her album sooner that later, the more she'll delay the lesser attention it'll get. I still think she's got more hits in her just need to have the right collaborations whether it's other writers or other artists.

General public or bad decisions (105,640) by Mimi L. from Empower Your Highlighter
(Wednesday 21 February 2024; 13:32)
I agree with you on this and again it's a personal preference for me. I love Mariah's music Daydream onwards. They feel more authentic to her artistry and what she wanted to do so they feel less "manufactured" and "formula driven" to me. She took more chances.

True it may be a stretch especially with Ariana singing live for sure. We'll see it's be nice to see Mariah but ya I don't know if she is comfortable with that setting. Hope the Cardi rumors are true and if so I hope it's the main version of the song and not another darn remix where we have to keep hyperventilating if it'll get her credit or not haha. The reason I am excited about Cardi collaboration is not because I'm a huge fan, it's because I want Mariah to get as much coverage on the popular playlists and radio exposures so that it sets her nicely for her own release. This Ariana collaboration eventhough no promo at all had her on a lot of big radios and major playlists. So that is definitely something we want for her.

I am hearing that YA OG has now climbed to the top 10 and no one can tell me the lambs didn't have a hand in getting it there by purchasing/streaming the remix, just like what the lambs did for BER, but looks like MC is not getting the credit once again.

Ugh unfortunately. In 2018 I didn't even think they'd ever collaborate. Forget #1 at this point, I was hoping for a good chart placement, but it looks like Ariana's team has abandoned ship, because they're releasing new remixes of the OG version and I haven't seen a single new post promoting the collaboration since Day 1. I feel like the excitement was definitely there when they announced, but a few things lead to it just being another missed opportunity. (1) Ariana's current reputation of a homewrecker and yes, and? being taken as a "I'm a home wrecker, yes, and?" (2) People not feeling Mariah belting. (3) There wasn't much promo after first day. (4) Mariah doesn't have much streaming pull and the song would have been dependent on Ariana's huge streaming pull, but Ariana is going through a slump. (5) People thinking this song isn't Mariah's type. (6) The song had already peaked and was free falling, so hopping on the remix didn't really make the "shock" impact of the MC-AG that their teams were hoping for. Makes me sad that it looks like all MC's new eras are staying relevant for like what on average 24 hours. I feel like a few live performances, little videos of why they collaborated or how they landed on this song to collab and all would have added to the hype, also of course a replayable MV. But I guess that's a wrap. I was reading somewhere that they messaged a radio station regarding why the station was playing the remix instead of the original, but the station said they weren't sent the remix. So honestly it's just sad that these era's are getting shorter with every release.

Being a doctor and fashion expert are two vastly different things. One deals with people's health, life and death and needs a very high level of expertise. Anyone can be a fashion expert you just need to have good taste and an eye for what's fashionable. It's not the same. It's not even a debate.

I said this before and I'll say it again, let us leave the sentiments at constructive criticism and avoid giving out medical advice. She's in her 50s, there could be a lot of reasons why she would want to avoid a surgery. We don't know if there's any risk to her health. Also even if there are no risks to her health, we should not be telling her what procedures she needs to do. We're not doctors and if any of you are, you haven't treated her. Also just out of basic decency, it's a no no.

So I hear the result is not based on fan votes at all but instead by a panel from the industry. Apparently the last time the top 3 fan voted ones were not the ones that were inducted.

I hope soon lol just because it's just too much. Between 2021-2024 she's released like what 5 albums? 4 of them re-records. She's always getting her fan base to hate on her partners but can't take the same heat when she's remotely criticized. She's also milking the Eras tour for all it's worth and I think she will release all her re-records while she has the Era's tour spotlight on her. The whole Travis Kelce thing is 100% manufactured in my opinion to keep her in the spotlight. Her fan base argues "she doesn't need more money, she's already a billionaire or she doesn't need more fame she's already famous", but if there's one thing we know about rich and famous it's that nothing is ever enough. Yes she's a billionaire, but she definitely will do anything to earn more money because she has to support the lifestyle she has. Yes she is uber famous but she knows she has to keep being in the spotlight because out of sight out of mind. After 1989 she vanished and no one even thought about her until she came back, then again she had a down phase, to the point for one of her songs I forget if it was Willow or Cardigan she had to release like 20 versions to compete with AIW, and that too fell off after 1 week. Now again we're over saturated.

To be honest I appreciate Taylor's artistry and her songwriting, it has a mass appeal. What I don't like is her money grabs and over commercialized behaviors. She's literally using her fan base as a cash cow releasing 2 albums per year (sometimes both re-records, sometimes 1 re-record and 1 new) and then she releases multiple versions of the same.

JLo is out at the Bronx singing CDs at target. Bless her heart her 300m followers weren’t enough, but lol MC and Ariana should totally start selling signed copies to maximize the sales. Side note Taylor Swift has been revealing new bonus tracks here and there and her fans are kinda tired at this point of her capitalizing of them. She sold atleast 3 different versions of Midnights, then all the rereleases and now the new album looks like will have different versions too.

Hahah I get your feelings and I too will be happy with a top 5 top 10 so that it positions Mariah really well for her next release but if it goes to #1, that'll be icing on the cake. I know it's a polarizing song, but a #1 is a #1 haha. I mean 4 of Mariah's #1s have been about her wanting to have sex lol (Honey, Fantasy, My All and TMB), 5th too if you count Emotions. The last collab she had was literally about having Big D Energy. Lol so I'll take whatever win we can have.

Yus US Lambs please push this song hard. Arianators are apparently going hard with promo calling the biggest radio stations to play the song. It was played on Z100 which is huge. The Arianators want it to hit #1 so Ariana can have the gift of going #1 side by side with her idol. There have been people who listened to it the first time and didn't like it only to later like it upon further listens, so if it's played on radio and all it'll reach masses.

"Mariah sounds too loud on the remix" (105,517) by Mimi L. from Empower Your Highlighter
(Saturday 17 February 2024; 20:43)
People are so dumb they literally said Mariah was showing off her vocals on purpose to sabotage Ariana. As if it's not Ariana's song and I'm sure Ariana discussed with Mariah what she wanted and Mariah delivered accordingly. This isn't like it was a Mariah song and Ariana had no say in it. Apparently Mariah's "loud" vocals sound really great when played in clubs because someone mentioned the remix was played in a club they went to. So Mariah knew exactly what she's was doing. Others saying Mariah sounds AI generated, like ok so she sounds great? People hate it when she whispers, people hate it when she's belting. People hate it when she doesn't sound great, people hate it when she does sound great.

Yall so looks like a MV isn't ready. Kris replied to a fan saying he isn't aware of any MV made. Which if true makes me sad. I was hoping they had one to promote. If there isn't I don't think they'd make one now because either ways Ariana's album comes in weeks.
