    This year would be the perfect time to re-release "The Ballads". Put Angels Cry, The Art of Letting Go & Portrait on there and Boom! 2x Platinum before 2021 has even started.

    I really wish there would have been a cute song to coincide with the book release!

    I cannot see her releasing an album until mid 2021 at the very earliest.

    Adore the cover! It’s a gorgeous shot and perfect for a book

    I am sure she will be a best-seller, there will be selective leaks and promo

    I want the debut anniversary now though, depriving us during quarantine is so unlike her! We are struggling!

    Did anyone read this article about Fourth of July?
    I don’t think I saw it posted here so here’s a link to the article about the song.
    Put some respect on "Fourth of July."

    Sometimes it truly worries me that you have children in your care on a daily basis.
    I can just imagine you reading passages from that book to them

    Depends on the week. Sales have been slightly up.

    I would say she'd need about 20K. But then with a Fall release, who knows.

    If you want a realistic shot to become a bestseller, you must sell at least 5,000 – 10,000 copies in one week.


    c'mon Lambily. Make it happen

    Grammys is a politics game. If you have friends in the right camps or if you please them enough, you’ll win. It doesn’t bother me anymore that mariah has so few. The fact that some others win with unremarkable releases tells me it’s not worth bothering about.

    The cover is divine. The color scheme is timeless, and her expression is very Daydream-like. Beautiful and alluring

    Yeah me too! I will try to get a digital copy at least.

    There weren’t as many categories back then, and unfortunately she wasn’t nominated in the general field any of those years from 92 - 95.

    The Pop Vocal Album category wasn’t created until the 1995 Grammys. I think had it existed her whole career, she would have undoubtedly been nominated in it for Mariah Carey, Emotions, Music Box, and maybe even Unplugged. She probably would have won it a couple of times too!

    I don't mind the picture. It serves it's purpose. I would have preferred if just be the picture and 'The Meaning of Mariah Carey'. Then have the writers on the back and side! Over all its better than I expected it to be! I can't wait to read it!!

    It has to do with motivation and psychology.

    That is the one thing that I never quite understand about the outrage that she was snubbed in 1996. Like she left empty handed every year except for the first year. So she was clearly never a Grammy darling anyway
