    I know right. Why is nobody watching it? But it is what it is. We been knew. Irregardless, she slayed and I am very happy.

        • Her look, the vibe of the arrangement and how she bopped and swayed to the music reminded me of Sade.

          I really do want to hear the 7 minute version. I can hear the breakdown after the final chorus with her singing over it, just like GML.
          I want that Jazz/Gospel/Soul album!!!!!!

            Mariah can pull a few tricks in the Willow Witch's toolbox when it comes to releasing music. Taylor inserts clues, uses surprise drops (her pattern recenly has been announce something on a Wed/Thursday, create a huge vacuum of anticipation dotted with clues), personally goes online to record an announcement that is picked up broadly by the media an BOOM Friday. She also times her releases really well when the competition is weak or she knows she has a good chance of hitting #1.

            Now of course, none of that is a given....this girl has built her goodwill mountain for almost 2 decades; blemish free (no one, including Madonna has done that).

            * Her music is inoffensive and caters to most generations, either as easy listening splashed with the recognisable pop tune and good melodies and songwriting.
            * She knows how to use the media and controversy to support her narrative (i.e. girl fighting against music industry) and draws emphathy or sympathy that way
            * Her image is very wholesome, girl's next door (but very polished upperclass), can't do no wrong. It doesn't hurt that she's a very pretty girl. Gives her followers a sense of relateability but also somebody to look up to (i.e. the Young Belong With me viddeo)
            * She loves everyone and the people she hates are those that are painted as the villains (we know she's not clean herself but the narrative she's able to weave is staggering)
            * She releases music consistently and grows her fanbase
            * She knows when to change it up (but never too drastic that alienates her prior fanbase) i.e. when Reputation seemingly went too far, she reverts to safer ground with Lover, and when that got less than glowing reception she switches it up again with the Willow/Evermore image, playing to the basic human connection with nature during Covid
            * She knows how to distribute her music in a way that creates the maximum value and fan anticipation. i.e. hidden clues, multiple versions.
            * She knows how to make her releases count; i.e. Willow is a prime example, as many tactics that she pulled it will go down as her 7th #1. No one in 5 years time will remember what she did to get there.
            * She plays with visuals and knows what the pop audiences want. She has a good eye for aesthetics.

            The way and success that Love Story (and obviously Fearless) is getting at the momment is what we all want for Rarities and its singles. Though shame that Mariah is releasing that when she's no longer on people's radar.

                Oh okay cool! Thanks! Wasn’t able to watch the whole show so I missed that part. Exciting!

                • Yeah - Mariah looks amazing, and the arrangement was great.

                  But the performance itself was the surprise for me - she seemed so comfortable and confident, like she was really getting into this and enjoying it.


                  The vocal was very likely pre-recorded, but the video wasn't one take either. There are a few cuts like at 0:48-0:49 which shows she filmed this at least twice.

                  I really like the little bops she's doing at 1:44-1:55 , and the upwards hand flutter at 0:34.

                  • Mmmm.
                    Still not a fan of that tone, sorry.
                    For some reason she's using some kind of effect that makes her sound thin as hell, no resonance whatsoever.

                    That being said, WBT is my all-time fave song. Loved the new arrangement and, all in all, it was a nice rendition.
                    Just a DEVIANT, PERTURBED, DERANGED, MACABRE, MANIAC, LUNATIC, IRRATIONAL PSYCHO-TO-BE.

                    • I have this performance on repeat now. It's addictive. The arrangement is everything. IF there really is a 7 minutes version... I need it in my life.

                      BTW... I've been saying it for years... that her older songs need re-arrangements... Maybe Mariah could re-record her favourite hits in her catalogue and release a quick in between album...

                        When MC30 wraps, I hope for new music

                        The debut could have benefitted from new production but the rest is timeless

                          I'm always amazed at what Madonna did during her confessions tour with the confessions songs... something like that.

                          ILT with a live drum-set sounds 10,000 times more epic that what they used in the studio recording. (the keyboard running down scales is also an exciting live addition).

                          That electric guitar gave WBT much more depth and atmosphere... I bet a lot of her music would benefit from real life instrumentation.

                                  okay...nothing "chipmunkery" about aNY OF this....

                                  my 2 cents;

                                  As MC"s #1 CENTRAL CALI COAST FAN and as a vocalist from the first 7 seconds of hearing her in '90, the following;

                                  I always thought my vocal injury/problem was my jaw/orthodontics,,,in fact with alot of work, it turned out to be ANOTHER injury

                                  i had suffered before the orthodontia, an accident that landed in my right hip/lower back, with cranial sacral therapy and other, I am
                                  I guess "conciously" living with the injury but somehow seemed to have "unhooked" its effect with my vocal "hookup"

                                  I'm saying this cuz I figure most all of us are vocalists/vocal freaks, my college music teacher B4 university was a GENIUS and Filipino!!
                                  https://www.capradio.org/news/insigh...sight-050217d/

                                  .....anyways

                                  MC needs to GET OUTTAH those heels!!! she can sTILL sing circles and belts around anyone but I'm just not hearing the gut tone and I think its the shoes!!!

                                  my tone was always nasally and in and out but it seems to be "sitting" in a way better "place" for whatever that is worth

                                  I also do this thing B4 each session, its cranial sacral, putting the one hand over the diaphraphm and the other hand, fingers on both sides of the vocal box, then waiting to hear it "pulse" so to speak, ie. the cranial sacral pulse, so that the "hookup" is there

                                  forwhatever that is worth, for whoever is curious on this stuff

                                  THAT ARRANGEMENT is her fantastic EAR and creativity and its a GREAT performance no matter WHAT!!! but the SHOES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                                  I'm hearing that JAZZ N BLUES CLUB TRIO set already!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Hurry MC hurry !~!~~

                                      I always love it when people who obviously wouldn't normally listen to Mariah Carey, review her latest output and think that what she is doing, is good. Because it really is.

                                          • I totally understand why she put a pause on MC30 for this new WBT!
                                            Maybe she’ll drop the 7 min version on Valentines Day!

                                            I can totally hear the bass drop and go into a sultry “Midnight” groove and Mariah taking WBT to a different place!!!!

                                            Ugh!!! Why does she tease us!

                                            Or, maybe we get it tonight at Midnight! Maybe?!? Maybe?!?

                                              Why didn’t her team send it to Pitchfork?
