    Of course.
    All of us are posting our personal/subjective opinions, not facts. I think that's pretty clear

    • I found imperfect a bit odd if I’m honest.
      She throws in some random “baby, baby, baby” background moments at the end but it’s not a love song. Who’s she calling baby?

        I think one of the things I love most about Caution is that it is grown and sexy - the lyrics are slick and she seems to be free. It's a simple thing, but even the explicit lyrics made it feel more contemporary. She also didn't try to overdo it. By that, I mean, there weren't too many bells and whistles or overly complicated lyrics. I love her ten pound thesaurus words, but the lyrics on the album are more accessible and witty.

        There also seemed to be some experimental sounds (for MC). You could tell that she was really open to new producers and writers turning work by Poo Bear, Dev Hynes, Skrillex, etc into something rhythmic.

        Perhaps the time crunch helped her a lot. It didnt allow her to pick the work apart too much and she finished it in a concentrated period of time. All of that showed pretty well on the album in terms of its cohesive lyrical content and production.
        you nailed it!

          I'm sure those ringtones - at least some of them - are full songs (maybe unfinished?).

          I would trade Time Of Your Life (in full) for Skydiving, that's huge BOP

            Not sure.

            I think the way MC works means there are limited number of "new songs" that are brought to completion in her vault.

            There may be demos and different takes but I think she very rarely shelves fully completed songs. That being said, even demos could be gems.

                Never noticed them. Must re- listen. I love the raw sounding climax.

                Edit - OH yeah they are totally random lol but I am sure she would have refined that for the final version

                I would still listen to this over Obsessed any day of the week !!

                  i want her to record the Angels Cry song she did with the co-writer of With You that she mentioned in the Genius review.

                    Give me all the demos and raw takes and I will enjoy them as much - if not more - as full/polished versions.

                    The demos are the real gems for me!

                    • I wonder if in Mariah's reimagination of songs if that could mean her releasing songs to producers to remix (with her), like Kygo?

                      • How sexy is this song in Spanish tho



                        Better vocals on the OG but I think her voice sounds sexier here.

                        • Since we’re not getting MOAIA week I wonder if she’ll release the video for the extended WBT

                          • I hadn't heard Imperfect before! I love it, but it definitely sounds unfinished. It would be really cool if they added some extra umpf to it and made it sound more current. I wish they had done that to Cool on You too. It's such a good song but I wish it sounded just a bit stronger and fuller (though I understand that the Rarities songs were kind of released "as is").

                              • I just came to say that 100% is one of the best songs she did during the MOAIA era, if not the best. Yesterday I saw the music video and it worked really well with the Olympics thing. It's a shame it is kind of forgotten even among the lambily.

                                      I think it had potential, but I found the production after the piano intro to be just a copy of Bye Bye

                                      • I loved “Imperfect” because of the lyrics

                                        I would love a release of it too, but without the auto-tune, but, I would much rather get a finished “Skydiving” if she chooses to revisit since it’s much more of an earworm and sounds futuristic yet timeless

                                        Skydiving has the potential to be a single, especially if she adds a bridge in the middle, or just a guest rap, and an outro, she could also make dem first verse whisper vocals more clear or or just re-record them like the second verse since her vocals are definitely as good now if not better than they were in 2009

                                          Bish was showcasing her inner Nuñez side in her Spanish songs. And yes, her voice has that added spice whenever she sings in Spanish. Viva! Maria Nuñez!

                                          • Imperfect, 100% and Skydiving... hope they are included on Angels Advocate and I'd be so happy when they finally see the light on Spotify.

                                                  All I gotta say is she needs to find someone at Roc Nation who used to work for or works with Spotify, they are going to be a necessary partner and promotional vehicle for all future releases
