    The way she just integrates melodies or bits from other songs into hers and makes them work as an essential part of the track and it doesn't sound off. It all flows organically. It ain't that easy.

    Agreed. She truly is the queen of the re-mix.

      I could still slap her for lipping the climax of hero... while she could literally sing it all the way thru. b!tch better get to her senses.
      I think she's neurotic about her voice getting damaged after '96

      • Not even joking, I think I've listened to Honey almost every day of my life for the last 15 years. ​​​​​​

        It's a sexy cool rnb hoe anthem, but yet classy af. The vocals, the production, the raps on the remix, the video.... Everything was flawless.

        One of my favourite songs of all time ever by any human being

        • I always wonder how 90s lambs felt… being with each new era came literally a new voice

          AND did they digitally make her hair that color on The Greatest Hits cover?

              I'm with you.
              That track needed a video.
              Also Betcha.

              They screamed for one.

                Yep, interesting juxtaposition.
                I like that contrasting effect. It works for me. It makes everything really bold.

                  She never dared to lip not even 1 second of that song - and for good.
                  'Cause I'm revoking my lamb card if she ever does that blasphemy.
                  It must be sacred for her I guess.

                  I remember when some lambs were saying that the sustained Bb4s from endings VOL were all lipped during the ATH Tour and b1tch proved dem wrong.

                  She was just very consistent with her mid-belts and her resonance was insane!

Even the part (maybe it’s the chorus) where she sings “got that big big energy”.. is a rip off of “swee-eet fantasy”.. almost identical melody and falls at exactly the same part of the sample.

                    Not fooling me darling.
                    Sis ain't fooling no one.
                    Pure bullsh1t.

                    Nessa wasn't having none of that BS either, LOL.

                    I hope MC sues her a$$ off.

That chorus is everything and her tone sounds so beautiful and breezy throughout, like the lyrics were just pouring out of her. LOVE

                    Exactly ​​​​​​​

                    For me it goes like Heartbreaker > Honey > Fantasy > Dreamlover.

                      Oh, how I wish she would've done full acoustic performances instead of these snippets back in '08.

                      Spitting truth.

                      I can only imagine the shock due to the change in her image between 1996 & 1997.
                      Sis really did that.

                      • Oh, look, an extended video from this private performance of SIO:



                        ---

                        And btw, sis needs to perform The One at some point, in the arrangement she wants to.



                        I hate the fact that she always stop singing when she's slaying.

                          • I'm watching random performances from the Caution Tour and there's some serious great vocals.

                            I love that vocal change she did at 2:16 - 2:22 here (amazing runs!).



                            Those endings runs are very subtle but so gorgeous as well.

                                    • I def agree on Fantasy and Honey being superior to Dreamlover. I never choose to listen to it but when I do I really enjoy it.



                                      I listen to this version (Mariah's first incorporation of the Firecracker sample) and the David Morales mix a lot too.

                                      • Butterfly – Mariah Carey

                                        Official Chart peak: 2

                                        UK chart sales: 305k

                                        Mariah’s sixth album and what she claims is her ‘magnum opus’ is a record of emancipation and long-sought freedom tooled with heaven-sent melisma and a more urban-leaning edge.

                                          Mariah is traumatized by the media. If she was less than perfect and didn't nail every single note in every of the hundreds performances she did every day during years they destroyed her. She then started to lip even the notes she could nail just in fear to not reach them live on TV or on streams.

                                              This made me so sad. Like, she is so strong but still has these insecurities. I will always love her voice regardless of the 'sound', because she's so much more than just her voice.

                                                I agree with the media being responsible, but not only that, fans too.
