  • I know it’s trivial but just noticed Cardi B still doesn’t follow Mariah back on Instagram.
    It’s MARIAH CAREY! How could her team not have noticed?

        This is something I wondered about. The rules on youtube videos are stringent where you must watch about 80% (I think) and not simply the first few seconds. So it will be interesting to see how much is reported to Billboard.

        I suppose the most meaningful figure is the number of shares (7K) and comments (1K).

        But, 2M eyes on a video, even if just a few seconds, is quite good either way.

          Plus they used vocals from 3 different takes and sometimes her mouth wasn't matching what she was singing.
          I’ll never understand why she/the team feel the need to do this. Particularly on flawless performances like this one.
          well, I do understand pressure of being over analysed and critiqued by everyone and their mother... which is sad!

            Imagine if it was worldwide. I know my friends would have clicked on this for sure. EVERYONE loved IKWYW, MC fan or not!

              This is one of the themes I saw coming through in the comments. Some people mentioned and appreciated the "continuation" from IKWYW.

              • I love the continuation too.. and I’m sure people will be curious. I just wish it was half as good. Mariah is smoking hot in the video though! Lol

                Maybe the curiosity will pay off...
                To avoid any upset, please note; anything I post is purely my opinion. If I feel it is a fact, I will state that I feel it is a fact. Lol.

                  I really enjoy it. It took a while to grow on me but I think it’s her best release (caution album aside) in years!

                    Doesn’t surprise me. Pure nostalgia! Loads of people will have been at uni/college when IKWYW was released (like me) and will have fond memories

                      I love the nostalgia moments dahling. I live for them!
                      I mean, "Dedicated" is one of her best songs EVER and I want more and more of that, but as album cuts.

                      You're right tho about fresher collabos.

                      I want more of Mariah + Dev.
                      I also want Mariah + Miguel Part II.

                        My top five.

                        1. Thank God I Found You (Make It Last Remix) ft. Joe, Nas

                        2. I Still Believe / Pure Imagination (Damizza Reemix)

                        3. Lil Love - Bone Thugs-N-Harmony ft. Mariah Carey, Bow Wow

                        4. I'll Be Lovin U Long Time (The Progressions Remix)

                        5. Unforgettable - French Montana (Mariah Carey Remix)
                        #TASTE <3

                        Thank God I Found You (Make It Last Remix) ft. Joe, Nas & I Still Believe / Pure Imagination (Damizza Reemix) are amazing, one of my faves and better than the OG's.
                        Nice to know that I'm not the only one that love the Unforgettable Remixes (the acoustic one >>>). Mariah needs to work with Swae!.

                        The song isn’t very good. The video is nice though.
                        LMAO, that was not a nice comparisson

                        The song is good, you just have to imagine that IKWYW doesn't exist, then u can really appreciate the track on its own.

                        It has grown on me A LOT that way.

                        The video is very cool.

                          Those kind of injuries never recover at 100%.
                          At least she regained all the muscle mass she lost, before the surgery her hand was atrophied.
                          It may hurt some days more than others.

                          She was so strong to do that concert in '13 with all the bruises in her body only a few days after the accident. Brave Queen.

                          Start tweeting to the big Mariah accounts: Mariah Trends, Glittering Mariah, Mariah Connection, All About Mariah, Mariah Access, Mariah Australia.
                          Then they contact other fandoms that are friendly with Mimi and organize a campaign.
                          They already did this with Oh Santa!, AIW & Butterfly album on her anniversary, just to name a few.

                            I also bought it on iTunes.
                            It's for the nostalgia.
                            They were going for that sound, I mean, it came as a remix of IKWYW.
                            Even the video has the same concept (some elements on it I mean).

                            This "feels" a bit weird for it to be so high but if all of this is from US streams, one wonders would could have happened had it been released on Friday for a full tracking week.
                            With that amount of views, the video should have more likes and way more comments.

                            IMO the Wednesday release was a total mistake, and doing it exclusively on Facebook for only US during the first 48 hours - when is the moment when the people watch the most - was even worse.

                            Yeah.
                            Now it makes sense.
                            Just for reference, the WIB video on Youtube has 630K views, 21K likes & 1.7 comments, but it's only the audio.

                              I guess she needs to get over it ASAP.
                              Her undubbed performances are way better than the dubbed ones.
                              Her real voice sounds stronger, healthier, richer, super resonant. Why did they wash all of that with the dubbing? I don't understand.

                              It's Busta's release tho!
                              I don't think she's doing anything for the song, just re-tweeting or re-posting LOL.
                              But yeah, it has grown on me.
                              I had to disassociate it from the OG first tho, it was a process!

                                Yeah, me too!
                                Can't believe it didn't go #1.
                                It peaked at #3.
                                What songs where #1 & #2 at that moment?

                                • IKWYW is still played in bars today here. It was a huge song back then. It definitely contributed to putting Mariah back in the good light of the the music industry after glitter and charm.. like a bridge to success in time for TEOM.

                                  Fingers crossed for this Bruno Mars collab lol.

                                    Tori Kelly - Always Be My Baby (Mariah Carey)




                                    She did an amazing job, as per usual.
                                    I love how she knows every single run, even the background vocals. She really studied Mimi.
                                    I think she's the only one that comes close to Mariah's agility (and also JoJo). Then Jazmine S.

                                    P.S. She should be WAY MORE successfull.

                                        Yeah, it was huge and it's a classic.

                                        Remember that also U Make Me Wanna was kinda a "semi-hit" in 2004, it wasn't "huge", and the reviews were not favorable, but almost Top 20 on Hot 100 (peaked at #21). This was on October 2004.

                                        She looks HOT AF on the vid (one of her best looks IMO).
