I'm a little worried about how she'll sound (if it is true). It's a lot of strained belting. Let's see how much is going to be live and how much lipped. I hope she puts in the effort to do it justice.

Insiders are saying the Cardi collaboration will be her next step - which is bound to get more people mad here.

True. Mariah and Ariana should have collaborated on a new song. After a couple of listens the song did grow on me and I heard it on repeat a lot but I asked myself why I myself or others didn't like it more:

First of all, it's not a new song. Even though Mariah adds a lot of layers to this song and her new verse, it's still 99% the same song that A) has been played out and B) people didn't love much to begin with.

I didn't find Mariah's vocals as grating or out of place as some people did. If Mariah, Ariana and Max Martin put them through - this is the style of singing they obviously wanted from her.

I don't believe this remix is tanking because of Mariah's vocals. This song was on its way out of the top 40 anyway. It will push it back to the top 15 for a week and of course the original will be credited as it has more streams/downloads I'm sure.

The opposite was true for Big Energy. It was a breakout hit and steadily climbing the charts when the remix came out and it just pushed it more. That wad good timing, this was not. It is certainly not the disaster many people think it is. It is just another building block for MC 16 which I'm sure will have the lyrics, music and vocals for all of us.

I do too. But that's only because I really love AI MC Selfish. I don't mind the remix, wasn't too blown away. I don't think she added as much to it as she did to the Big Energy remix. Also, I agree with what somebody said - some adlibs just don't sound too pleasant. Of course I'm still playing it.

Not happy (105,440) by Shezz from Pk
(Thursday 15 February 2024; 14:05)
I think we over estimate the current market. I believe even if Mariah were to have released one of her signature hits today - bonafide hits such as Dreamlover, Always Be My Baby, Honey, My All, Fantasy etc - she would struggle to crack the top 20 of the BB Hot 100. Mass market is not going to stream or download her enough today to make her break the top 10. I hope I'm proven wrong ofcourse but I'll just be happy with new music - not holding my breath for her to receive crazy commercial success again. Which is why I feel she has not been putting out much music lately - general audience not loving her enough anymore plus lack of label support/faith in her.

I love it. I would've been over the moon if this were her first single off MC16. I also feel it is very Mariah. Which makes me wonder. Wouldn't this sound mean that she's continuing in her same mid tempo R&B comfort zone though? I believe she will experiment and explore different sounds but I don't think she'll stray too far from who she is as an artist.

Whereas Madonna or Gaga would've been better suited for the remix of this particular song, I believe we underestimate how versatile Mariah is and how she not only reinvented remixes but she has some amazing resung dance remixes.

Also I agree Mimi L, I think they genuinely do like each other and a smart move on Mariah's part definitely. I'm not counting on this song being her 20th n1. I don't think the remix will take over the original and there won't be so much love from Arianators as with a new single. Also, apparently half of Ariana's fanbase isn't happy about Mariah being on the remix, they wanted someone else.

Nonetheless I am still super excited to hear it tomorrow. She definitely will elevate it like she did Big Energy. I fear it might meet the same fate chartwise. Still, will be good to get some more spotlight on Mariah. Looks like her new single will drop a month or so later now.

Mimi L. are you following the current insider developments/rumors? (General insider not just for MC.) Mariah might be on the Yes, And remix. That'd be exciting if she is.

Rock and Roll HOF coming up as well - I think she took the annual defrosting only for Christmas meme and smashed it literally.

I would love that album title. It'll be interesting to see if she drops the album before or after her Vegas run. She looks like she's serious about promoting her music this time. Insider account says she's planning a lot of talk show and event appearances for promo.

New music announcement coming up (105,266) by Shezz from Pk
(Monday 5 February 2024; 04:14)
From the same insider account and from a Cardi B fan page. Just saw her present the pop vocal grammy - Miley Cyrus fan girling over her was so damn cute to watch, specially the backstage video.

Wow I wonder what got her to change her mind about the Grammys and be part of the whole weekend. She looked amazing but her dress was like 5 others that she already has. New era is coming soon I can feel it.

According to insiders, Mariah is going to announce new music very soon. She has an upbeat pop/r&b song with Cardi B that is a strong contender for the first single.

I think Pedro meant to say that the "style of music" of the album is similar to that of E=MC2 according to the prediction account, not that the album is called "musical style".

Apparently she has also filmed all her recording sessions as well.

And yes, we are all going through our own battles that does not make someone or allow them to behave like that.

Robert Anthony you cannot let someone like him fill you with self doubts. You are an amazing, intelligent person with a very beautiful soul.

Mimi L. your situation with Andrew was getting uncomfortable for us to read through. I read what all you lovely people have to say daily and rarely post but I wanted to say that you are one of the nicest people here and I am so happy that you stood your ground to his incessant bullying and biggotry which eventually led to his self combustion as it has before. It is so good to have you posting regularly again.

The insider/prediction account that you were talking about I think is Nostradamus Insider. They have been spot on about all other artists. I think Mariah possibly could have had a change of plans midway through her project last year which is what led them to be wrong. They claim MC16 as it was last year was scrapped and re-done.

She has been maintaining her fitness during and post the holidays which means she might be gearing up for something soon.

(Monday 8 January 2024; 11:06)
How come nobody's commenting on this beautiful jazz cover she just performed? The video was from too far so I couldn't really tell but sounded like it was pre-recorded which I'm not mad at at all because it suited her current voice really well and got me excited for what is to come - hopefully she'll have a couple of jazz numbers. I was looking for the recent concert video of this song and found a Qatar concert video for it as well.

Happy New Year everybody - may we get MC16 soon and may it be everything we've wanted and more.

(Tuesday 5 December 2023; 02:39)
Robert Anthony you called this weeks ago. There still are a few more weeks for her to get to number 1, I hope she gets one week atleast. Though you said you thought she won't hit number 1 this year. Maybe she'll hit number 1 on the chart for the first week of 2024 which will keep her streak going. I remember it was a really tight race last year as well and RATCT was also number 1 on Spotify last year but more towards the end. I don't think any amount of promotion at this point will make people stream or buy this song more than they already do. I don't think Mariah has anything left to accomplish with AIWFC - most of us were hoping it would help her get her longest running number 1 title back. It still can, might just take longer now. I think some people are generally getting a little tired of AIWFC (as per comments seen online). Heck even I tend to skip it on my Christmas playlist now sometimes - but whenever it does come on it still sounds pretty darn good I'll admit.

Lets celebrate her reaching number 1 on the global Billboard and Spotify charts and looking great in the People shoot. She says she has enough songs for an album now needs to record some of them so maybe a new album in spring. Also, I read online that Butterfly Lounge is Mariah's foray into Jazz. Lets hope that sees the light of day soon.

Never sung in her life (104,167) by Shezz from Pk
(Thursday 23 November 2023; 03:36)
Yes she has newly recorded vocals for some of the songs she was singing live previously including [Joy to the world] and [All I want for Christmas] intros. Now that a handful of shows are done you can see they're identically phrased and sung. Funny thing is that whenever she is actually singing live she sounds pretty good so I don't know why she needed to but what are you gonna do? It is what it is. People are really enjoying her shows and can't really tell or don't really care. I feel it's akin to people believing in Santa Claus. It makes people happy - let them. Why must we keep pointing things out and ruining it for the ones who enjoy it?

Cut her some slack (104,125) by Shezz from Pk
(Sunday 19 November 2023; 16:59)
You'd be stiff too if you just defrosted after 10 months. She's singing better than she did last year and earlier this year whenever she's not lipping. And she's finally not making that awkward face when she is lipping. She's looking good, she's even helping the staff mop and making up impromptu songs again.

In the photo montage clip that ET posted from the first show I noticed Bryan was in one of the Christmas dinner pictures. If they've broken up she wouldn't know him anymore. This is the first tour in ages he's not there with her by her side for whatever reason. She obviously misses him terribly and is trying to be as happy on stage as she can right now. Her second show was already an improvement plus the general audience/public are loving it. One thing I will say is that the set design isn't helping Mariah much this year. Does not seem as elaborate and kitsch as it has been the previous years, seems a little bare and cold.

Tis the season for something... (103,780) by Shezz from Pk
(Tuesday 17 October 2023; 15:25)
Mariah has a Spotify taping with fans in LA in early November. She is also rumored to make a big announcement before her Christmas tour starts and have a big collaboration coming up. Could the fabled "Themed Album" be another Christmas album? Whereas a third Christmas album would be crazy even for Mariah, it also could be her safest album venture. Mariah is smart and knows her albums don't sell anymore but she also knows that she holds special magical powers during the holiday season. It's a long shot but maybe she's recorded another holiday album with a lot of collaborations? Either way - something is a'brewing.

Taking care of herself (103,464) by Shezz from Pk
(Wednesday 13 September 2023; 05:00)
Totally loving this MB30 era and a happier looking MC. Her instagram pics were beautiful. Is it just me or does she tend to dress less provocatively each time she loses weight and gets fitter? It's not that the clothes fit her better, her choice of fashion changes. The "girls" are no longer front and center. The E=MC2 era like Andrew mentioned was one of her best. She was the fittest she had ever been. She could have shown off her body much more than she did if she wanted to. I remember her regularly being layered in chic short jackets. The clothes were fitting, revealing her toned figure but the girls were hardly in focus. Each time she gains some weight the girls pop out (pun not intended) - I'm assuming they make her feel more attractive?

Workin Hard x My Prayer x All I Live For x Hero 09 (103,407) by Shezz from Pk
(Sunday 10 September 2023; 05:09)
I love all these new songs. My favourite keeps changing every day. My Prayer mesmerizes me each time I hear it - yes it sounds a little dated. Or rather nostalgic and I love that it transports me to another time. Workin’ Hard grew on me in a few listens and I love that it got a remix treatment as well in the same release. All I Live For extended version is great but gets slightly less listens from me than the others because its novelty is slightly less in comparison I suppose. And just like the rest, I was ready to hate Hero 2009 but was pleasantly surprised by it.

Most of all what I loved the most about MB30 was how it got everyone here in such a positive, happy, “ I love Mariah” mood again.

Mimi L needs to un retire and chime in now.

I hope the love that Mariah is getting for this influences her future creative endeavors.

Maybe this is the song the Clark sisters worked on. According to one fan site she used a full orchestra to rerecord an unreleased song. Rest easy Bill, I don't think she's rerecorded the entire Music box album - just unreleased/unfinished song or 2. Friday is too far away after that teaser she released. Sounds like her current voice?

MC's impending unwanted chart record (101,626) by Shezz from Pk

If all goes as it should and AIWFCIY tops the charts again this year, MC will take over from Cher as the oldest female to score a number 1 on the Billboard hot 100. A record she will no doubt refuse to acknowledge.

In other news, Jennifer Hudson says she has something planned with Mariah for Christmas. I think she might guest on the show that is to be broadcasted. I hope everyone's doing well.
