    Like they work as a chorus on their own, they don’t even need the regular chorus under it, even though I love the regular chorus too, especially the post-chorus
    That Ahmad sample was genius!!

    • She added so much melody to it, especially the second verse

      I always forget it’s about Nick though, she probably can’t listen to it

        One of my faves from the album, that and the Impossible, plus of course the reprise.

I believe the rumors back then were that the “Thirsty” video looked cheap, but idk.

          I assumed either her label or Mimi herself weren’t happy with the outcomes and amongst the confusion as to which single to push they all just let everything fall to the waste side.

          That stuff could have definitely been made up, but those rumors were definitely out there.
          The Thirsty thing isn’t true. But it is true that they (partly) shot a video for YDKWTD, I too remember the extras and dancers posting aboutit. Whether they filmed a whole video is unknown.

                Appreciating the Candy Bling love. It was the first song on MOAIA to really strike a chord with me and I still love it to this day. (That and inseparable are probably the only two i still listen to from the album)

                  That or they keep Glitter stuff for something more big, this year will be it’s 20 anniversary... of course she won’t release anything on 9/11 but she could do something a few weeks later. That would be dope!

                    I remember reading about the Ahmad sample for Candy Bling in the run up to MOAIA, and then being really disappointed she sampled the chorus rather than the track (which it turned out was actually a sample of Love TKO by Teddy Pendergrass).

                    I grew to love Candy Bling but always thought she’d sound killer over a Love TKO sample! Missed opportunity for a Candy Bling remix with new vocals!!

                      • SIO's second verse is a whole mood.
                        What an effing bop.

                          If they did film something for YDKWTD, they must be able to make the video. Even if they just shot on one day, they probably have way more over 4 minutes of film.

                          • Listening to my TEOM vinyl
                            She coulda left Sprung out, ruins the mood completely. It's just noise.
                            Secret love is a JAAAAAAM.

                                  Candy Bling is so underrated.
                                  UTS meets FOJ.
                                  Love the little references and the vocals are so dreamy, I love the belting and the ad-libs during the climax as well.
                                  Def one of my faves.

                                    Those are my faves as well, well first Betcha, then Candy Bling and then The Impossible and The Reprise (tho I prefer the belting on the reprise, those last raspy belts!).
                                    And of course Languishing, I wish it was longer!

                                        • I think she's having some issues with Glitter, that's why she had to skip it. Hopefully she can work it out.
                                          Or she's planning something bigger closer to the anniversary, but I'm leaning more for the first option.
                                          There's no way she skipped it purposely because "she don't like it".
                                          She only showed love for the album since the justice momevent and even changed her name to Billie on Twitter, she gave us new pics from that Era, and not to mention she also did a whole segment of tracks during the Caution Tour.
