You messing with Daydream? (103,048) by Edward from USA
(Friday 21 July 2023; 14:16)
It is just perfect from start to finish. It's definitely her magnum opus.

"Daydream was only huge because of Fantasy remix with O.D.B. and One Sweet Day. The rest of the album is just copycat of those two singles."

Uh... No. While the O.D.B remix was more popular, I've always preferred her solo version.

There are better songs on Daydream than "Fantasy" and "One Sweet Day", way better. I won't tell you "copycat my ass" because that would be inappropriate to say on this board, but "Underneath the Stars" is far better than OSD, just to name one.

Fast Internet, Social Media and Streaming contributed to the disruption of the revenue model music labels used to have. Music labels are not making that much money from artists anymore. Big contracts like in the 90's are a thing of the past.

Mariah being dropped by Epic doesn't surprise me. She hasn't released an album in 5 years and the longer she waits, the less interested people are.

Let's not be sentimental about it, she's a legend, but labels don't care about that, it's just business. If there's a time for Mariah to go independent, that time is now.

As for how Madonna can hold up, well, in only a couple of venues, Madonna makes more money than Mariah would make in one short tour. Madonna has also being bundling up a copy of whatever album she's released at a specific moment with concert tickets.

Unless you're a prolific songwriter like Mariah, artists have always made their money from concerts, since label tentacles couldn't reach that far into that domain, even though things are changing.

I think "Never Forget You", "Anytime You Need a Friend", "Everything Fades Away" and "Without You" are very emotional. Mariah's voice on "Never Forget You" is makes me feel her pain, it's like something is piercing her soul, specially during the climax. And let's not talk about "Daydream", those journalists simply didn't like her, that's all.

Mariah has been recording for quite some time now. She said she would be fishing for a streaming deal for "The Butterfly Lounge", but it seems to be the general interest in her doesn't warrant the money they would spend. The Clark Sisters confirmed Mariah had them sing their asses off on a recording session, Tanaka was following her every move during the Butterfly "Lounge Sessions" to document the creative process, she also said she had recorded a lot during the pandemic because she had supposedly gotten her voice back. She actually has a lot of material, but I guess she hasn't been able to secure a viable record deal. She could release "The Rarities 2" to alleviate the pain of her fans for not having new music from her for five years now, but oh well, it is what it is.

Had Mariah written more frequently for other artists, she would've definitely gotten the public recognition she deserves as a songwriter. When the voice started failing about two decades ago, she should've taken advatage of her pen-game to write and produce for others, but that was never the case.

It's sad we just have so few artists from the 90's still standing. Mariah definitely deserves her flowers. She not only paved the way for many, but her contribution to music has been significant. I think her diva persona has prevented some from taking her seriously though, but respect where respect is due. And yes, Latto treated Mariah with the respect and admiration that she so well deserves.

I guess it's Mariah's fault. We need some studio music now. The Rarities 2 would have us all holding hands like we used to in middle school.

You seem to be a lil bit obtuse. "Yass Queen" doesn't refer to sexuality. It refers to what delusional fans like yourself blindly call Mariah when she has done a great or horrible job. And Eric, my dear, has always been fair to all of us. You don't get to have a board like this for 25 years by being a tyrant.

Forbes richest women, no Mariah (102,814) by Edward from USA
(Sunday 4 June 2023; 18:41)
All those figures are speculative. They usually estimate those numbers by the value of companies they're heavily involved in, celebrities do not go telling how much they are worth. We know approximaly Oprah's value based on the value of Harpo, same for Jessica Simpson and even Rihanna, but it's basically impossible to know. When Forbes and the lambs were sure Mariah was worth approximately 500 M, her prenup with Nick showed she came into theirr marriage with 150 M, very far from the numbers Forbes and other online outlets had been stating for a decade. In short, do not believe Forbes.

Mariah was the most qualified but she wasn't good at it. She was rather boring and couldn't articulate her thoughts easily. Everybody was always waiting for those enlightening critique moments, but they never came. Wait, there was an enlightening moment when she became the first judge ever to get late to the show set, the other judges had already started taping without her, and when she showed up, she said: "If you want a diva, you have to pay the price." Many times she went on her usual diva tangents and rather than being a judge, she was more worried about being nice. As much as I hate to say it, Nicki was better at it. Some people are or have a well of knowledge, they could be great at using it, but few have the skill to teach it. Mariah is great as a mentor, she's shown it on some shows, but she should stay away from judging on singing competitions. The good things is that she knows it.

Disney commissioned Simone Porter, Justin Gray, and Lindsey Ray to write Almost Home. Mariah Carey later signed on to sing it. She and production team Stargate later changed it a bit and ultimately, completed it. She was never asked to write the song, and I'm happy for that. Almost Home is the closest we got to 90's Mariah. Had Mariah been able to change significant part of the song, she would be singing a different tune. Probably they could only tweak the production a bit.

I agree with you. I know it's up to Eric though, but it would be a nice gesture, Martyn would smile from wherever he is, Till the End of Time.

Andrew, I hope you keep posting, you've been away from the messageboard for some time now, but some of us have missed you.

There are many professional vocal coaches on YouTube who have gone over her vocal issues very respectfully. You can see the concert in their eyes when they analyze some of her performances.
