Anyway, the dubbing here was totally unnecessary. Love the rasp.

I must be in the minority but I never enjoyed ISB. I think the song is not worthy of Mariah. The melody is so two dimensional and the range is too small. Mariah tried to improve it with loads of vocal acrobatics and belts and textures but no - it just illustrated even more that the basic bones of the song was inferior. In fact, Mariah had so many tools available to her (texture, range, melisma etc) that it probably made the song sound worse cos the song couldn't handle it!

She really doesn’t need to collab with anyone, especially not the people y’all want her to work with. Solo bops only girl.

I get what he's saying but still like what she did with the song. It really highlights her tone.

Funny that 80% of the live performances are better than the studio version.

Also all the remixes of the song are MASTERPIECES and way better than Mariah's original cover.

this sums up everything that i wanted to say
thank you King Shaka
I agree
But i personally would use the word COMPLACENT instead of lazy

These days, Mariah only delivers when she has something to prove or she is the underdog

I don’t think she’s done any. And that’s not a bad thing, but I don’t think she’s been in album mode recently, since she’s been really busy with her family, getting in shape, celebrating the holiday seasons, and concerts.

We’ll know when she’s recording. She loves posting studio pics, and producers love tweeting about their collabos with her on social media. But I’m sure she’ll record some new music soon.
MIAMTEC was so increíble, it’s been satisfying my insatiable need for a new Mariah album.

I WILL manifest Lullaby of Birdland tho! I’m sending out good juju into the universe! She did it on the Elusive tour, and I know she’ll record it someday

The Star and Lil Snowman are so brilliant. I hope she recorded more songs on those sessions. She was in a very good place when she wrote those songs.

Lil Snowman is some of the worst vocals I’ve ever heard anyone record in my life, let alone Mariah f***ing Carey. If she did more in those studio sessions she can keep it, she couldn’t pay me to listen to that.
