    Again, theres a lot that happen behind the scene that we'll never Know. Ms Warwick has been beggin Mariah to write her a song without any success lol. That being said you can see her clapping Mariah full of jealousy in Grammy 91, which is understandable as she was stealing her cousin throne at the time.

      • Pentatonix commented under Mariah's TikTok and she liked it. This is the first time they've interacted. I wonder if they're going to be featured in her special after all.

            [ A rookie success as spectacular as Mariah Carey’s tends to spark a backlash, and Carey was derided by skeptics who saw that Columbia Records had spared no expense in accessorizing her with the most dependable collaborators money could buy. Emotions addresses the perception of Carey as a fabricated star, as well as the comparisons to Whitney Houston, by giving the twenty-one-year-old singer greater control: She wrote all the lyrics and coproduced all ten tracks. While it sustains her stature as a pop goddess, Emotions demonstrates the hazards of such calculations.” ]

            [ Like many young performers, Carey doesn’t understand the value of understatement. “I Don’t Wanna Cry” was the best track on Carey’s debut because her downcast whispers animated the song’s luxurious sorrow; at full speed her range is so superhuman that each excessive note erodes the believability of the lyric she is singing. On Emotions her eagerness to deploy her immense vocal range results in the overheated growling of “Make It Happen,” a teary tale of how she kept her religious faith despite hard times. ]

            [Carey coproduced four songs with David Cole and Robert Clivillés, this year’s pop-dance maestros, but the partnership doesn’t fly: Their beats aren’t as unrestrained and joyous as they are on their work with Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam or C + C Music Factory. Instead, they back Carey with pumping house keyboards and shamelessly recycle the chords of Cheryl Lynn’s “Got to Be Real” and the Emotions’ “Best of My Love” to construct the bubbly new-disco “Emotions.”
            Popular on Rolling Stone]


            [On the other six songs, all ballads, Carey works with Walter Afanasieff, who produced “Love Takes Time” on her debut and also helped create Michael Bolton’s bombastic soul. When the pace slows down, Carey does too, and Afanasieff can be an effective one-man orchestra: The moody grandeur of “And You Don’t Remember” and “Can’t Let Go” will sound great on the radio.]

            [There’s a conflict between Carey’s thirst for musical challenges, like gospel choruses and the light jazz ballad “The Wind” which ends Emotions, and her dependence on commercial dance pop. Her goal is to elevate the Top Forty tricks of Janet Jackson and Karyn White with vocal greatness. On “If It’s Over,” Carey even invokes the style of Aretha Franklin’s classic Atlantic sessions. Carey has spoken of Franklin as a hero, but there’s an essential difference between their styles — the daughter of a preacher, Aretha imbues even her dullest work with the spirit of the church, whereas Mariah’s mother was an opera singer, a background that translates into such excesses as the falsetto whoops that punctuate so many of Mariah’s songs. Carey has a remarkable vocal gift, but to date, unfortunately, her singing has been far more impressive than expressive.]


            What do y’all think of this? Especially the last part. It seems that while a lot of critics praise Mariah’s vocal ability, they always say they emotional and feeling aspect is missing which is strange to me because that’s what drew me to Mariah’s voice. Ir was never the range or the whistle notes. It was her tone and songwriting that touched me.
            I don't agree with the review at all. I LOVED how she threw in the high notes on this album. At the time she herself said that when the emotions get too much she feels there's nowhere left to go with her voice but UP! That's what I feel, that's why I love her, the emotion in her voice.
            I do think the bad reviews got to her (or her label) as the high note at the end of Can't Let Go was left off the single version. Also, the high notes were brought back to the background on her next studio album (Music Box).
            Emotions remains one of my all time favorite albums to this day.
            Treated me kind, sweet destiny, carried me through desperation... Prayed through the nights, carried the weight on my own and now I know I've succeeded in finding the place I conceived... I had a Vision of Love

              • All I ask re the gowns is that she’s not wearing a sparkly gown in the music video for the single. Lol.

                  Those times you spend 10 years complaining you were only allowed to wear gowns. Just to spend another 10, only wearing gowns.

                            Something additional that we don’t already know perhaps? A short clip? A teaser of the video… there’s countless possibilities.

                                  • Hmmm Joe Jonas posted about it to his Instagram story. Maybe after all this time that “group” she’s referring to is the Jonas Brothers.

                                        I thought this too. They are fans of her and so are Joe and Nick’s wives. …but they’ve been on tour the last couple of months, so idk when they would’ve had time to film for the Special, so maybe not.
