  • Her insistence on releasing ballads will pay off as she gets older! Nobody will be interested in a 60 year old releasing A NoNo as a single (see Madonna).

    But knowing Mariah, that is exactly what will happen... we will get singles like Migrate at 75. (Yet at age 38 we got Bye Bye)

      I'd be over the moon if she'd still release quality songs as Migrate at 75.

      • The most overrated song of her career. Meanwhile masterpieces like For the Record and Joyride are paid dust.

        • Part of selling a song is the right image to go along with it. If she is releasing club bangers anytime from the age of 65-75 there will be a severe disconnect. She could be doing that now, and should have been since E=MC2.

            She doesn't need to sell a song when she is 75.

            Shirley Bassey released club bangers when she was well in her 60s.

              This whole post confused me.

                ^^^ This! Not only should it not have been a single, but it should have never even been on the album... to this day it's the only song I skip on Caution. Those overly breathy whispers of "With you, you, you" were too much for me to listen to more than once... and who says "I ****s with you" on an AC record? The most hilarious clip of the era was when Mimi was singing her new single to Patti LaBelle and it was obvious that she didn't like it... she was trying her hardest to pretend that it was cute but her face was completely lost.

                But just imagine if she shot that same concept of the "With You" video for 8th Grade instead...

                • Does anyone else hear a similar sound between Spinnin and Somewhat Loved? Just listening to the album for the first time.
                  Listening to Boyz II Men. I love the the sound. Very dramatic. The instrumentals and deliveries by the artists so far.

                    I think Caution, The Distance Givin Me Life and 8th Grade would have given the album more of a shot to sell more though, had they had videos etc.
                    Totally agree with this. IMO, the GP and casual Mariah's fans, they still expect some big vocal moments in her singles, which is not available on Caution. GTFO, WY and ANN are all quality songs but didn't have that universal appeal that people normally associate MC's with..

                    Most lambs are of course happy with the Caution and at the end of the day, its all that matter.

                      Both FTR and Joyride were my instant favs. The vocals are amazing. I was hoping for FTR to be the 2nd single and didn't quite like BB.
                      But, Migrate was great too. It probably would have been a bigger hit than BB and IBLYLT if released as 2nd or 3rd single....

                      • Then Mariah comes in with Breaking My Heart!
                        I like the sequencing of the tracks so far.
                        I hear this 90s R&B experimental sounds.
                        like, these are all the songs they wanted to do but the studio heads said A No No.

                          With You was good for radio and should have been the third single after two bangers like The Distance & Caution. The era could have ended with A NoNo with that elusive remix.
                          I think that Mariah is into power-plays... When she doesn't get her will (ie MIgrate as a single), she then completely blocks any more promotions in order to succeed with what the label wants her to do... Her resentment stems from the Tommy years... who despite Mariah's obvious distain for Hero, made her slave it out aganst her will... but as her owner.. she had no choice, but to comply... these days... once something that she wants to do falls through, she is punishing the label by being willingly bad at lipsynching on an important awards show or she runs away and is marrying some unknown person...

                          With Caution... Mariah was totally anti the entire project from the get go. She thought of it as unfinished... and once the label took control of the era, she made sure to look bored and not interested anymore.

                          That is what has been killing all of eras since 1902: self-sabotage.

                          Every ghey during their meet and greets with ha, are slapping her for not releasing club bangers... and yet she pretends that all we wanna hear her sing is another we belong together clone... God... She is so stubborn.

                          On MC16... she is going to record the same ole stale beat ballads and mid-tempos... but that is what we deserve for being so passive... and letting her get away with it.

                          I mean, she teased SUD 6000 times and is probably thinking that the grunge sound will alienating her core fanbase... in reality apart from the 15 regulars in this thread... everyone has already parted and left the sinking ship.

                          Mariah should take notice... and if anyone from her team is reading this: Make her make club bangers. We can survive an entire album without any ballads.

                            • FTR is a masterpiece. I'm absolutely shocked that they went with BB and then IBLULT and ISIL.

                              Gurl-bye.

                                  nobody is saying that the song is bad... it's just not a successful single... or even single material. She's always releasing the same song over and over again as singles... (and they have 0 success anymore) while she leaves the really outstanding material hidden as album tracks. That's insane.

                                  • IBLULT & ISL are freaking amazing songs as well!

                                    But, I agree FTR was so ignored!!!!
                                    she needs to sing the full song in the next tour!

                                      And, that live performance!

                                            i didn’t look at it like that at all though, Patti looked like she liked the song
