    Infinity song is the close second.

    Third is that atrocious song from Empire TV show was it, I don’t even remember the title.

    Somewhat Loved is not her single, but it goes in the same bin. All of us will forget about it by July, if that.
    Infamous wasn't a single. It was a song for a TV show, and I really like the track. I still play it for time to time.

    And why would I forget about something that I enjoy by July?

      But this isn't even her project.
      It's a left-over from MOAIA session and they put it in like a compilation album.
      It lacks the quality of her studio albums? Yes.
      But I enjoy the track as what it is. It was not meant to be her comeback or a hit or the prelude to her next Era.

      • Her daily streams on Spotify started to rise since last week.

        Also, she's about to reach 15M Monthly Listeners (14.96M as today).

        • I'm the only one that like the lyrics here?
          I mean, it's clearly not a lyrical masterpiece but they aren't as bad as some fans are suggesting.
          The verses are pretty good IMO.

          • Her voice was kinda shot but her tone was amazing!

              I think the lyrics are clunky and a bit forced. The angel metaphor was a bit cringe to me.

                • Loving how healthy, strong and well-connected her voice sounds!
                  But the track is a no no for me.
                  I hate the pre-chorus, don't care how "r&b" it sounds. Verses are just there. THE CHORUS IS FIYAH, THO!
                  Just a DEVIANT, PERTURBED, DERANGED, MACABRE, MANIAC, LUNATIC, IRRATIONAL PSYCHO-TO-BE.

                      I agree completely! The track is OK. It's just the pre-chorus. It has a weird, dated Stevie Wonder B-side vibe that I'm just not feeling.

                      • Have none of yall noticed that the lyric video is full of little throwback moments to her other videos?

                        The tyre swing over the water from Always Be my baby, her swimming in the water like the start of Dreamlover video, the hot air balloon from the end, the big wheel and the rollerblades from Fantasy, the jet ski from Honey and from her set at Vegas ( its the same pink one she had on stage) and the horses running from Butterfly.

                        It is so nicely put together. Love all the little references.

                          The song is better than half of MOAIA

                            • Now that I have seen the lyric video, I like the song better, as I can now sing along or at least know what it going on. I literally understood only 20% of what she sang when I initially heard the song. Perhaps it was the combination of the weird mixing choices and the unusual vocab and her singing in a light voice that makes everything incomprehensible at first listen. Also, the fact that the song title "Somewhat Loved" is in the least interesting part of the song (...well, except for the bridge). Why couldn't they just name the song "Breaking My Heart", which is the catchiest part of the song???? Oh well...overall, have heard the song about 10 times now and am feeling positive towards it. It's like a nice filler track that I don't mind in the background. I would have preferred this to many songs in MOIA:

                              Somewhat Loved > Candy Bling, Inseparable, It's A Wrap, The Impossible, Betcha Gonna Know
                              Perhaps = with Up Out Of My Face but I think I would prefer to listen to Somewhat Loved.

                                The pre-chorus reminds me of one of the Chloe X Halle songs

                                  • Just saw a short interview on Instagram where Jimmy Jam And Terry say Mariah sent them the track and it was just her and a piano, interesting. She must have so many more unfinished tracks than we know about.

                                                  And the lyric video is the bomb!

                                                  • I think my main issue with this song is that we already have enough midtempos where she sings about being abandoned or having someone break her heart. Like she seems stuck in that lyrical mindset.
