I’ve read a lot of good official reviews for the GTFO video!

I personally, I think it fits the mood of the song perfectly.

To each their own.

Either way, I’m loving that the press is loving everything about GTFO!

The thing about calling it a buzz single is that they implicitly expect that this song wont be a hit thus there are a bit less effort put into it and that no matter what happens they won't push for it more.......

The unless part is that when it becomes a hit DESPITE the buzz single treatment...
Oprah Winfrey whole segment, for real.
20/20 Barbara Walters, for real
60 Minutes, for real.

It is interesting how the song is practically all whisper and a higher register. She doesnt reaaaally belt or hit any high notes at all. It is a different approach to her previous songs.

I absolutely love the adlibs she does at the end and wish there was more of it. More of her full tone

After hearing the song on repeat for this time and watching the video, i really wish mariah enunciated the words clearly. People wont back a song they dont understand the words to unless the song is lit. The lyrics lose their impact if muddled

Honestly like...yes. Everything about this video is 100x better than I Don’t. Just like the awkward cringey editing of I Don’t made it one of her worst videos ever, and the outfits (besides the red dress) were truly atrocious. Here, she looks gorgeous, poised and confident and bc of that she really oozes sexy and isn’t cringey at all. Her face also definitely looks so beautiful!
How bout you...

Shuffle played the ABMB Remix right after GTFO and I swear I barely could any difference in her voice. It just has aged a bit

Honestly what saves me from hating on it. I will never not hate her for what she did to her face those years. So thankful she looks like herself again now. Her face has gone back from looking sweet. In the I Don't she doesn't look like she's a nice person, if that makes sense lol. And it accentuated the fact that she looked vulgar.

Ok this actually made me appreciate more how she looks in the GTVO video lol.

I’ve tried, I’ve tried and I’ve tried some more but I just feel a bit “MEHHH” when I listen to GTFO - and call me old fashioned, but I loathe whenever there’s swearing in a song.

I’m not giving up though - there are aspects of the song I like:

- The vibe, it’s very Drake.
- The vocals during the verses.
- It’s good to have a legend back.

What I don’t like...

- There’s not enough full vocals.
- How she sings “how ‘bout you...”
- The swearing.
- The structure feels a bit poorly thought out.

I need to play the hell out of it. It doesn’t eally seem to go anywhere at the moment.

I can’t with the word “vulgar” being used to describe Mariah during any era.

The video has a good mood that matches the song. I think it’s fair to say it’s enough for a buzz single. At least it’s not just a lyric video, although that may help some of you understand the words. I think Mariah’s melisma disguises words, rather than mumbling. The more pronunciation you apply the less notes you can sing during a Lyric .... maybe.
Listen to me and the amazing Lucy! Radioactive
