  • Out of the blue I heard A No No on our small local radio station today. Totally unexpected. It sounded great.

It was common in the mid-late 90's to serve singles to radio but not stores to push album sales. Forever served that purpose promoting Daydream following its three massive #1's (Fantasy, OSD, and ABMB), but if their huge sales were any indication, Forever would have smashed on the Sales charts and would have debuted high on the Hot 100, if not at #1. It was released a full 14 months before Honey. There was time. I think it was a missed opportunity for another #1...
          Yeah, I agree.

          It did so well on radio that I don't understand why they didn't push it as a single making available for chart on the Hot100, where, as you said, it would have debuted very high.

          She has had so many potential #1 hits...

          The song is amazing, one of her finest ballads

            Yasss, massive BOP!

            I've also heard the song randomly in my country as well.

              What was her job? What she did for her?

              Not sure what her job was. She seemed to be a friend of one of the main people on the show.

              its at 1:32

                  Well Mariah was in Japan when it got released to radio and she probably didnt want to have to promote the song in the US when she got back. They probably had a break pencilled in before the next part of the tour.

                    Thanx!

                    Lookin' at the comments seems like Mariah was a character from the show.

                    Well, that's what I got.

                        Well, that's what I got.

                        There was a woman on the show named Mariah that got fired or something so everyone is mad in the comments but the lady is talking about Mariah Carey.

                        • Fantasy has been so consistent! It's great to see it in the top 200 overall and top 10!!!! on iTunes R&B.

                            Ok.
                            The show looks like a hot mess

                            ---

                            Fantasy inside US iTunes Top 150 at #144.
                            It have been steady and climbing.
                            Amazing how TikTok have "resurrected" so many old songs (not the case with Fantasy yet 'cause it didn't have that much of impact but it did with Obsessed).

                            I think it was excluding the Xmas ones and also the live performances that aren't on albums or DVD.

                            Otherwhise, O Holy Night, You & I and With You I'm Born Again would've been on my list definitely.
                            And also her SOTR/IYOK Medley <3

                              The Eb5-G5 area won't ever be touched by anyone.
                              Her voice just exploded at F#5, that was her money note between '95-'96.

                                  The fluidity and tone. Nobody could replicate that caramel, buttery tone up in the F’s/G’s... nobody ever!

                                  she was one of the only artists with consistent volume during this era and beyond. she doesn’t need to sing louder to reach the notes of that makes sense.

                                    Yeah, her control, tonal quality and resonance were off the charts.

                                    You can notice how powerful actually her voice really was in the undubbed clips.

                                    In the dubbed (DVD) the sound is way too polished and her voice sounds a bit lighter, but here she sounded like an unstoppable beast:





                                    The sheer power combined with that flexibility, damn.

                                    I always say this, but I've never heard such solid column of a voice with that level of agility in non-classical music (I'm talking about this period in particular btw).






                                    That musicianship >>>

                                    Haha, never follow the rules and play by your own ones.

                                    That's what Mimi taught us after all

                                            A version of “We Belong Together” by The Chillest just started playing on my Apple Music and I cannot get over how good the vocal melody is

                                            JD always credited ABMB to Mariah, but like the melody on that song is just as good as the lyrics, same with WBT
                                            I always felt that MC not only writes most of the lyrics by herself, she also thinks of most of the melodies. It's just she doesn't play an instrument and need a co-writer to write the music.

                                                Don't feel it was about that. Mariah always talks about songs like she wished they had been released. It's probably more a label decision (wanting to sell more albums).

                                                  Apple in fact reported this on International Women’s Day a few years ago. I’m not sure it’s accuracy today but was a true fact.
