I would have also made it appear in the TV series "Stranger Things" because of its 80s vibe, or have the kids of that show in the music video... I strongly feel this connection between the song and the show and or the 80s vibe of that show.
    I agree, The Distance would have been the PERFECT lead single. It sounds like a classic Mariah single.

        Butterfly in general had good promo - she had a lot of interviews and performances.
        I just wish Breakdown got some serious attention.
        Yeah.
        There's lots of My All performances in '97/'98.
        Also some great interviews from that Era.

        IMO The Roof needed more attention as well.

        The promo for Charmie was really good.

        TTR at AMA's was amazing.
        She got a Standing O.
        Also My Saving Grace at Soul Train Awards.

        She looked amazing, acted mature, dressed nicely and served vocals the whole Era.
        Charmie paved the way for her comeback (IKWYW included of course).

        Yeah, exactly.
        100% agree.

        But in general the Caution era did wonders for her public image even if it did fly under the radar for the most part.
        I also agree.
        You can't compare the two.
        But as you said, her public image was restored and then she got a #1 and broke some records.
        2018-2020 have been amazing years for her.

          The Sydney concert was amazing.
          She was on fire.

          And she delivered probably her best VOL performance EVER.

          Yep.
          It was so obvious!
          Tho I think GTFO worked well to create some buzz.

          Which says a lot

          I love TD but not as lead single.
          I know this is unpopular ​​​​​​​

              I’m always torn but I think ‘The distance’ with an amazing video and remixes ready to go. I prefer the song ‘Caution’ but I think ‘The distance’ represents the album well as keeping that Mariah sound but with a modern twist.

              I’m still mad Caution the album wasn’t pushed more it’s such a great body of work. I also never get tired of listening to it.

              • The Distance all the way. Had EVERYTHING a first single should and it complimented her legacy singles beautifully, connecting to Dreamlover, Fantasy and ABMB.

                Comment


                • Singles should have been:

                  summer 2018: The Distance
                  fall 2018: Caution
                  winter 2018: With You
                  spring 2019: A NoNo

                  that is all the album needed and it would have found the right audience.

                  • I can still remember watching this back in those days gave me so much anxiety lol I was like that dress is so tight that she would have a n!p slip soon or the zip would just snap. Nonetheless, she looks sexy af here. I love those curves and the big hair.

                    • That was a mess but it’s crazy how they (public and fans) called her fat back then

                        Funny you say 'dark'.

                        That songs just gives me this weird sense of overcast, gloomy autumn days in a rural or suburban high school somewhere in the US midwest.
                        I am not sure why! lol

                          This means she’s in Atlanta, maybe working on music with JD?

                            If so, that’s great news. Can’t wait for some new Jermash/MC collab. But maybe just the kids are there for some daddy time?

                              This is days old. I think she’s back in NYC cause Kris was in NY when he posted a video with MC

                              • It’s an absolute travesty Caution wasn’t the lead. It was made to have several remixes and a video as well. I always pictured the return of agent M or even a seductress serial killer vibe lol.
                                funny how one can learn
                                to grow numb to the madness
                                and block it away

                                  Wow that concept is amazing and I haven’t thought about it. Agent M with some dark concept with caution albums colors and lights, something like mission impossible would’ve been great. It’s sad the lambs are more creative than her whole team and herself.
                                  I don’t know why she’s so lazy for visuals. And don’t tel it’s about budget cause you can make creative videos with low budget as well

                                  • I wonder was Caution a touch too similar to Be Careful to get released as a single. I have to say I never noticed before but like its pretty identical. Love Caution regardless

                                      • This song right here gives me vital energy and sustenance. It is my daily breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It is my spiritual sacrament. It has helped me rise from the deepest depths of despair and sorrow. When I hear this song I can feel and connect with the raw emotion emanating from Mariah. It makes me truly believe in the law of attraction. Mariah poured her heart and soul into this song and manifested her “vision of love”. And it gives me the motivation and strength to know I can accomplish all my dreams if I just BELIEVE in the power of love.

                                        I've realized a dream
                                        And I visualized
                                        The love that came to be
                                        Feel so alive
                                        I'm so thankful that I've received
                                        The answer that heaven has sent down to me”

                                              They've never been released as a single even though they totally deserved the lead single treatment.
                                              Mariah team is very good at blowing away golden opportunities.
