Really? Meteorshite and her sisters Supernauseatingly, Camoufail, One More Tripe and Hellno destroy MIAMTEC for me.
Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn. I mean, I have five Grammys. That’s cute.

I dont know why Mariah hasnt made more Jazzy tracks like subtle invitation.
:roll: :roll:

I would rather have an album of Jazz-influenced tracks than WBT rehashes and Jd collabos....

Listen to this. She wasn't even trying.

LOL. That clip of her trying to turn off the cd player is one of my all-time favorites from her-- SO hilarious :lol: :lol:

This performance was also amazing! The ensemble, the minimalist makeup, the live vocals...

Since we got It's A Wrap's little sister Make It Look Good last album, I hope for a finale to this playful mid-tempo trilogy :D
I adore this song and this performance :D
I'd love for her to do another song in this vein, perhaps a bit easier to sing, and perform it live all over the place.

She should perform It's A Wrap again, it wouldn't sound bad. I just wish she'd put as much effort into her belting as she did back then, even when her voice wasn't in top condition.

Absolutely. I feel like that's what made Jamaica so great - the lack of inhibitions! Maybe she should go for purple taking me higher on stage more often :lol:
More often than not, she seems reluctant to just go for it these days.

People list alcohol as one of the things that messed her voice up but lately Drunk/Highriah sounds better than SoberRiah most of the time. :oops: :lol:

I know she was drunk af during most of Beacon 2014.

Mariah NEEDS to get on stage and SANG there's got to be a way....

There's got to be a way
To connect this world today
Come together to relieve the pain
There's got to be a way
To unite this human race
And together we'll bring on a change

She would be on the floor and gasping for air if she had to sing that song.

Well, she's the kind of girl who uploads a performance of OMT 3 years after she released it or promotes a christmas movie in March.... there's little we can hope for.

It's not up to Mariah (this time). Blame Busta, it's his single after all.

Petals is one of her best songs. Shame how overlooked it is, probably because it's on Rainbow.

TLC Returns With First Single “Way Back” From Their Fan-Funded Album

After years of gestation, TLC plans on releasing its Kickstarter-funded album this summer, and today they released the album’s first single. It’s called “Way Back,” and it’s about reminiscing on romances of youth. There is a distinct wistfulness that recalls Mariah Carey’s wonderfully nostalgic 2014 album Me. I Am Mariah… The Elusive Chanteuse. TLC debuted the song via iHeartRadio, which alleges that the song features a verse from Snoop Dogg, though he is clearly not present on the audio provided.

Last year, TLC put two songs—”Joy Ride” and “Haters”—exclusively on iTunes in Japan, though it’s unclear if those will also appear on the group’s forthcoming album, which is slated to drop on June 30.
