I feel that way...
Surely some fans have other favorites, but the song it's always present in the Top 10 in the rankings we make.
not only the lambily worships it...
music critics as well... if she ever had a clear chance of winning a grammy out of the blue, it would have been with The Roof. It has never been submitted tho...
Imagine any other act sitting on a song like this... anybody with a brain would have promoted the ish out of it. But with Mariah.... she kept sitting on it and was already down with the next album when she debuted Butterfly.
Butterfly was the perfect album to last from 1997-2000, literally every single track should have become a well promoted single.
But I cannot even be mad at the singles choice... i mean Honey, My All and Butterfly all slayed careers. It was a HUGE shame tho that Butterfly did not receive a physical single.
The Roof would have sat at #1 on urban and R&B for decades - if released.
I so hope that she will perform again... imagine her recreating the video for a live concert... everybody would faint.
The Roof is the only song that could turn the critics around in realizing how unfair they've been to her. I mean even Rolling Stone stans the song and they literally have Taylor Swift above her on their alltime lists.
