        • I’m really enjoying the song and it definitely has replay value for me.
          my one critique is that the last 10 seconds are unnecessary, it should have just finished before the little outro

          • obvious leftover from Memoirs, and then again a leftover from the Rarities
            don't see it going anywhere

            • I do like the song better now that I’m hearing it on Apple Music.

              Still love MC’s new vocal and can’t wait to hear a new album from the Queen!!!

              • It’s cute, I like it. It is just too disjointed, another bad bridge. Nice addition though, and lovely vocals.

                • I like the new song for what it is. The chorus is really catchy. The new vocal is good, comforting, reassuring.

                  You all have a point as regards the 'messy' structure. If it were simpler, more straightforward (no pre-chorus, no bridge) it could have done a bit on the radio.

                  I'm shocked at the low youtube view count!
                  Just goes to show how hard it is for veterans to make their music heard...
                  And also, in comparison, Mariah still has a relatively sizeable base of listeners waiting for her music (when it's her own release, on her channels).
                  I can't even know what to say...

                    I thought the same. It’s crazy low. Hopefully it’s just a lag

                      That’s the best whistle though!

                      • My only dislike is the middle 8.. not pleasant on the regular listeners ear.

                        • Verses sound like a medicore bridge, bridge is a total mess... the only thing good about the song is the chorus. Whistle outro is kinda cool too. I don't like it unfortunately. But I only had one listen to it, so maybe it will change

                            Not too bad when you think of the fact that their channel only has 10K subscribers.

                            But their Babyface song did climb to over 1.3M, which are great figures for them!

                            • Unfortunately a very underwhelming song and I already had very low expectations from that snippet leak.

                              The production is not it even for today's RnB standards and it doesn't go anywhere. The chorus is the only memorable thing about it whereas everything else is patch work.

                              To think that this production team were the ones that did All For You with Janet. Why can't she do a fresh sounding and urgent song like that with them instead of this mid-tempo song that clearly has been done to death before and has not worked for her since DFAU. Yes they're RnB producers from the old days but it is not even at the level of some of their past songs.

                              Vocally this is a step in the right direction from that slightly thin vocals on the WBT Remix. Though there's something about the slightly childish way she finishes notes or adds flourishes (eee-ey-ehh-ee) which is a bit off putting for me which coupled with her tone not generally being as warm these days can be rather jarring at times. She has done rather well recently (in tours and on pandemic performances) to sing out the notes properly and not let it break, that should be the direction.

                              If this song was part of the Mariah Discography rate, i'll probably give it a 3/10 or thereabouts, just not feeling it at all despite a few listens.

                              On to MC16 please and hopefully something more inspired. Still waiting for that IKNWYW style of firestarter before MC16.

                              • I admit I was always jealous that mariah never did anything as fresh or catchy with J&L as All For You. I’d have loved that to have been Mariah’s song in 2001 haha

                                  Leo and I spoke about doing a "flash poll" for any new releases. May still do it.

                                  Just FYI: A rating of 3.0 would place it #333 in her Discography - aka dead last!

                                  • I wonder if JJ&TL layered this track themselves. Some bits of this just doesnt seem like her work in that the layers don't necessarily work well together and where the background almost crashes into the main vocals.

                                    • I’m gonna go on record and say I was the first to say I’d love her to have had ‘All for you’

                                      I have to admit the chorus of the new song is stuck in my head. I want new Mariah music for summer like an EP!

                                        Totally disagree. I love that part when the heart beats come in at the end. If that's the bit u mean!

                                          • Currently listening to the ending of ‘Faded’ for the fourth time in a row. She was really going through it, such a passionate vocal and simple yet effective lyric.

                                            ”always somewhere but you’re not there for me”

                                                Definitely, it bops harder, loved that arrangement, I wish she would've keep it, with that shortened version.

                                                Yeah.
                                                She's been doing them since like forever, with more or less quality.
                                                It's fun to have them. Some will love it, some will hate it, some will find it ok-ish, but at least we have new music and new things to discuss about.

Lol I don’t get why people are making it sound that this Jim & terry song or songs from the rarities are a reflection of mariahs current musicality. When her actual latest one was caution .. the most acclaimed album of mariah.

                                                  I agree!
                                                  It could've been a better track with less elements going on at the same time, its needs to be polished.

                                                  Save The Day was not was as messy, but I much prefer her vocals here and the song has interesting elements, just that is way too much - especially for the casual listener LOL.

                                                  I'm glad she's part of this project.
