A track so good that even after clocking in at over 6 minutes it makes you wish it was a little longer. Definitely love the Beautiful Ones vibe. I’d love to hear about how the Eddie Murphy dialogues got incorporated into it. Feels bizzare but works so well at the same time.

As much as I'd love a Missy collaboration, three rappers might just get a bit much on the song, turning Mimi into the guest feature on a rap song. So is JD credited as the producer for A No No in the album credit notes?

It looked like he was trying to rope Missy in on twitter. He implied that Lil Kim sent him her verse and he wanted Missy to hear it.

I remember Barb[e]ra Streisand had an album out around Memoirs or MIAMTEC and she sold a whole lot more first week and got a number 1 album. However, this time her album that was released a week or two ago sold around 30k only. Cher's high first week sales was an anomaly for a legacy artist and interest in her album was boosted by the Mamma Mia movie. I don't think promotion or roll out made much of an impact on the sales of Caution. A hit single would have helped sales. Remember TEOM was released off the heels of two hit singles and Touch My Body, the record breaking number one propelled E=MC2 sales. No songs from Caution manages to crack the top 100. All things considered, these sales figures are pretty decent for Mimi.

Mariah has re-recorded some vocals for the A No No remix and it will be released next month. This remix has to materialise if Caution is to have any legs. I'm glad she had the commercial foresight to add Cardi B into the mix along with Lil Kim (if it is indeed in the works). They could have an amazing girl power moment with it like she did with Missy and Da Brat on the Heartbreaker remix. Hopefully they can line up a big video before her Christmas tour starts, if the label supports it. Don't know if anyone caught one of the recent radio clips of her saying that she's lucky if the studio has the budget for anything more than iPhone video these days. Either way something is coming for sure, with all the studio videos she's posted on her instagram.

Mimi L. I don't want to jinx it yet but it seems like your christmas wish might just come true this year as per Lil Kim's manager's post. Let's hope they're not just playing with us.

You know her saying it on Andy Cohen and putting it out there kind of sealed its fate. When has a collaboration that she has explicitly wanted ever happened? The only ones that happen are the ones that she is quiet about. Still hoping that it comes through. Other than it being epic, it would without a shadow of a doubt be commercially successful and that would definitely bring more general public attention to the album, otherwise it’s going to be off the album charts in a few weeks sadly. If the remix happens, it has to be the next single.

I wasn't feeling Caution and OMG much till yesterday. Caution clicked first and then OMG. I wish they had only released one song and not 4 because now I only wanna hear the other 6 and that feels too short.

She’s right but I fail to understand your claim of Mariah copying or sampling this rapper. You’re just discrediting your own ludicrous statement. They have both sampled a much older song.

A No No should not be passed up and it is begging for an official Lil Kim remix. I hope she shows Giving You Life some love but I don't think it's commercial enough for the label to get behind but a mini movie video with it would be amazing.

Fallon / Caution / sales (86,103) by Shezz from Pk
(Saturday 17 November 2018; 14:35)
The Fallon performance looked and sounded great. I couldn't quite tell where she was lipping if she was. Everytime I thought she was lipping, she'd change the note up in the end. Re-recorded vocals or live, don't matter she did well and I liked her ensembles.

After finally getting my fill of Giving Me Life (reminds me a tad bit of Beautiful Ones though of course without the hair raising vocals) I gave the other tracks a chance and did really like all of them though I do agree the texture and the tone is a bit similar throughout, some can call it repetitive others can call it cohesive. MIAMTEC was more diverse and had more vocal moments for sure. That being said I do love the album, wanted more from Portrait lyrically but I'm really happy with the album overall.

Lastly, has anyone seen the iTunes chart or sales projections? Last I saw she was at #4 on iTunes. Strange if Glitter got to #1 I thought Caution would have flown there. Anyway, great promo still left, awesome roll out, kudos to the team. Lets hope they don't abandon it too soon.

Is giving me life and it's everything. By far the standout track for me. I love the slowed down delivery and general vibe of the song. I have it on repeat and haven't really given the other songs a chance yet.

GMA appearance 11/19 (85,851) by Shezz from Pk

So the GMA apperance/concert is on the 19th but if I remember correctly she did one for MIAMTEC as well didn't she where she sang YDKWTD and one when Beautiful was released as well. Why are some people saying she hasn't done GMA in so long?

Damn. Buble might have a stronger first week no matter how much promo she does when she gets back to the US, which I don't think will be extensive. It will be interesting to see if the sales are better than MIAMTEC. General industry sales have gone down since then as well. Fingers crossed for a #1 debut. Looks tough.
