  • I really like "With You" but literally every other song on "Caution" would’ve been a better choice

    • With Caution, it’s all “shoulda, woulda, coulda”

      I don’t think Mariah had a choice with “With You” being pushed as the first single. It was designed by the label to attract an older audience so that they would buy the physical album.

      I think with whatever label that puts out her next album, they’ve since realized the strength of streaming and its potential for success (I mean AIWFCIY, hello), so I think the strategy moving forward would be different.

      TikTok has made it clear that there can be a younger audience for Mariah’s music and I really hope they utilize that social media to the fullest for her next project.

        All they need to do is to attach AIWFCIY to her new albums... each and every new future album, like all the other new chicks do with their bigger hits... then release the new album on November and by January... the album is platinum... that's literally all they have to do.

        • If sucks to say this but I think if she wants her next album to have any success she needs to have the debut single feature a hot young artist (Ariana, Cardi, Bruno, Weeknd, etc). And it needs to be promoted heavily by both artists teams. The general public just isn’t gonna tune in to a solo Mariah Carey record even if it’s promoted properly. A lot of the GP that do listen to Mariah currently just see her as a legacy artist and listen to her old tracks. It happened in 2013 with Beautiful ft. Miguel. It can happen again!

          Ik she’s not a big fan of collabs for singles. (Especially with popular artists ) but I hope something changes her mind.

            It's always the same... Mariah is always credited as the featured artist... even tho it was a duet... the same happened with When You Believe on YT or I Know what You Want...

            these publications should go by Billboard... bc Mariah is always credited as the main-co-artist on all of her collaborations, excluding Where I Belong (her first feature after Lil Love (2007) )

              she only needs the right song... something completely out of the box... and trendy. The main problem with Caution was that it was planned as a nostalgia album... and they chose the absolute wrong song. The Distance / Caution should have been the sole lead singles and promoted as such... The Distance would have also reached the higher ends on AC radio...

              Secondly... in the streaming age... she needs better music videos... she really does... Nothing fancy... but a shred of creativity and a shred of a plotline would be wonderful after 12 years of getting nothing... She really does destroy any chances with those boring beauty shots videos. A semi-professional self-filmed go-pro video shoot of her just going to a grovery store would certainly fare better than any of those $250k ball gown, bikini, self-caressing snoozefests that she is currently delivering.

              She doesn't even need to appear in a music video... she could have a song with somewhat of a message and go the TLC Waterfalls route and have actors play it out while casually appearing in a couple of scenes miming the lyrics.

              Honestly, every one of us could come up with better ideas than herself and the professionals around her.

                It just seemed that they pointed at something more fresh with GTFO and then With You was anti-climactic for me.

                I would have liked to get a GTFO remix. It could have been an awesome dance song. Same for A No No. The remixes just added a verse. But Mariah herself complained about them not letting her re-record it like the old singles. If they had at least added some stronger beats to the remix... (Interestingly, ANN is about to surpass GTFO in spotify streams soon)

                Caution could have worked, but it would have needed some extra work to become a big hit, IMO.
                They should have pushed GTFO at its fullest.
                They started already bad with the day of release, other than that it would have charted on the Hot 100 and maybe the song would have seen more success in the following weeks. A remix could've boosted the track a bit. It was going viral at some point.

                With You should've been released as the last single, or a Valentine's Day Edition. It did its thing and was a "hit" on Adult Contemporary.

                ANN with those unknown features was a waste of time and money.

                Caution sounded like a hit for me.
                And Stay Long Love You too, especially when Gunna was popular and the song is a total bop for me.

                But oh well, it is what it is.

                  I don't see the appeal for The Distance (as a single, I mean) it sounds like a great album cut for me.

                  GFTO & Caution were the more obvious singles IMO.

                  • That's cool!
                    We love a Top 2 hit.

                        TikTok is becoming a monster.
                        Probably it's gonna count for Billboard in the very near future, mark my words.

                                      U mean, my 3rd most played song to have ever existed... GOAT?

                                      01 - ca 47,050,000 plays - When You Believe
                                      02 - ca 35,000,000 plays - Without You (first Mariah song I've ever heard in real time)
                                      03 - ca 20,000,000 plays - We Belong Together: played it exclusively for months on end... sometimes 47,673 times a day.

                                      It's not my fault that I am older than y'all and that I've actively experienced music in real time since 1991... and began developing my taste with Whitney being my original soulmate act until Mariah tied her in 1994. So, organically, their duet would become my alltime #1 most played tune ever.

                                      When you were born in the early 1980s such as myself... you simply had no choice BUT to fall in love with the original vocal queens... but I guess I'm being shaded for liking them now too. I will not apologize for loving Whitney and Mariah. Maybe you all think that they are bad artists and maybe you all hate them and spew vitriolic bigotry... but that is not me.

                                      I'm in it for the art... not the charts.

                                      I also won't apologize for owning 5 individual and different versions of TEOM and 4 individual international physical singles of WBT. Maybe you will try and find a way to say how my taste is bad... but then again, I will not apologize for liking Mariah,

                                      Yes, I am a white person... and maybe you will say that I'm appropriating your culture... and maybe you are right... but my heart is pure and my soul is free. I'm at peace and I follow the good sisters Nippy and MIMI wehere they may lead me... to God or to myself.

                                      Don't try to make me the villain. My ancestors had to endure so much in the past. Let me follow my heart. It's unfair to be judged.

                                      Love, I wish you well.
