Name: Warren
Country: Trinidad & Tobago
I am a fan since early VOL days and being from the Caribbean, far south close to south America, access to music and information was always so difficult. LOVE MC's music all these years and feel like she has only gotten better. I have been able to see her twice and they have been fantastic experiences.

While we argue about vocals and stiffness and what [may] or may not have happened, can we please acknowledge the wit and maturity and total focus and lack of tangents she's been on recently. This made me proud.

Who is she kidding? (102,878) by Warren from Trinidad & Tobago
(Tuesday 13 June 2023; 00:40)
Terna I fully agree.

But let's forget about the voice for a moment. What impressed me the most and made me the happiest was seeing how comfortable she was on stage. Moving around, no awkward poses and stiff boring performances. This was the best I've seen her work a stage since Madison Square Garden in 1996. I know it's a bold statement but she seemed so at ease with whatever she was doing. And for me, after literal decades of bland and/or purely vocal performances she was a true performer again.

One cover to consider (102,534) by Warren from Trinidad & Tobago
(Tuesday 11 April 2023; 21:02)
She always gravitates towards 80's ballads and I've always wanted her to cover Richard Marx's "Right here waiting". I also absolutely love, just as a song, "Hallelujah " and think she could do so much with that.

Mariah vs MC (102,404) by Warren from Trinidad & Tobago
(Monday 27 March 2023; 16:25)
Hey Jamie. My thoughts are that Mariah was just being Mariah for the first part of her career. Finding the balance between what she wanted and what she was told to do. Then as with any rebellion she went totally opposite. Personally as most lambs, I prefer Mariah performances but MC delivers much better albums. There are a few skips on her earlier work for me. And now that fame and trying to remain relevant, together with Peter Pan syndrome she's trying too hard to make music she thinks will be popular vs music that is actually good. She just wants that next hit. It's the cost of the immense success she's had, so I think that's why she leans so hard into Christmas, because she knows she will always be #1 in that genre.

I totally agree - losing that record stung. It should happen, unless Billboard changes the rules again before then.

Totally agree Robert. This is by no means Toyko Dome, however the confidence and ability to attempt some of what she was doing is certainly there for some reason, and its paying off. Its not like she's trying and failing. I like what I see.

Anyone else notice that in recent weeks, she's been keeping dem boobies hidden or a little more subtle, which has resulted in more high end and sophisticated looks? I know it's not proper to comment on such things, and she can wear what she wants, but all of the looks that have been getting all of the positive talk from us and the media have all been where she is being slightly more mature with her looks.

Macy's performance (101,674) by Warren from Trinidad & Tobago
(Friday 25 November 2022; 15:58)
So what you're basically saying is, for just 4 minutes out of a 3 hour production, they need to get a sound engineer and mixer, have a live band (because a pre-recorded musical track just would add legitimacy) and all the other logistics that goes into a truly live performance. Especially when every other single performance is lip-sync, even the Macy's choir? I'm not saying she would have killed it if it were live, but at least be fair and just when throwing out all of these statements.

Ricardo - I totally believe this and hope for this too. She just needs the right team and release strategy. Copy Adele's method 100% for all I care, as long as it is done right. Because we all know, she could make the best music, but if it isn't marketed properly, the general public will not respond.

Good/bad news (99,305) by Warren from Trinidad & Tobago
(Monday 27 December 2021; 15:47)
So as you can see I'm from a tiny island in the Caribbean of 1.4 million total population. So our market does not make a dent or impact in the grand scheme of anything. I'm saying this to say the radio stations (yes plural) have FILAC on repeat. I just can't understand it. I have not even heard All I Want.... for the season. That's the good news, the bad news is the more I hear it the more it sounds ok.

Re: I have a feeling (99,248) (99,250) by Warren from Trinidad & Tobago

My thoughts exactly. It spent 3 weeks in one shot already so let's average 2 per year. In less than 10 years we can have the record back. I really hope they don't change the rules again, but sales aren't coming back and streaming is the way forward so the rules may remain. Imagine if she were to hit #1 every year of 2 decades.

I think that's an inevitability we all need to be faced with. MC will always work with JD as long as she has full creative control over her career. She needs to at least listen to the advice of someone else at this stage if she hopes to ever be a non-Christmas artist at least once again. After that, I would be happy if she called it a day and only did one off performances like the WBT Valentines mix.

You meant the level of success of WBT right? Because she has tried to recreate that too many times over. She should go for something totally new, fresh and that would surprise and make people talk, while still keeping that "Mimi" sound and vocals. Just my 2 cents.

Does anyone maybe think the dark hair, the all black, covered up and clunky black shoes with metal studs seems like it's a rock and roll vibe? Maybe the Ugly Daughter era ironically - because she looks anything but.

Re: What other music are people into right now? (97,338) (97,341) by Warren from Trinidad & Tobago

So I'm from Trinidad and Tobago in the Caribbean and right now was supposed to be carnival time, but Covid cancelled it all. No parties, no street parade for 2 days of booze, fun, music and well.

Our local music is soca and this is the quintessential soca song. For those of you that do watch the video, it's from 2003 but Nicky Minaj (who's from here) came back and filmed Pound The Alarm video so her video has some of the same elements.

Signal to MC (96,836) by Warren from Trinidad & Tobago
(Saturday 5 December 2020; 17:13)
The success of the Oh Sants remix in just one day should send a clear signal to Mariah that she needs to work with the younger popular *female* artists. Would love to see Gaga, Katy Perry and whoever else she can tolerate and obviously who she "knows".
