'Glitter' soundtrack is finally available on streaming services (Spotify), but only in a few selected countries.

This tbh. I've gone back and forth in my head who I'd really like to see on Mariah's new album but I'm hoping the lead single is a solo effort. If there's a remix with a rapper than fine but Infinity was the last solo MC song we got.... it's been over 2 years.
Wow, Infinity was her last solo song? No wonder I blocked that shit out.

We're getting The Star which sounds like it's gonna be really good. Plus, Lil Snowman.... which better not have anyone as a feature, be it a rapper or someone like Roc & Roe (you guys got me fretting now) so there's that for the time being. I know those are Christmas songs but.... welp!

That last melisma! <3

These vocals are why I stand by the opinion LTW was recorded during the Butterfly sessions.

I know this is totally nerdy, but I called into a popular radio station to talk about Mariah's staying power and career choices.
NPR's KPCC Air Talk is one of the most widely listened to News Stations in all of Southern California, so it was fun having a discussion on Mariah, particularly for a demographic that often undervalues her achievements.

But when was the last time she actually released a good solo song that was radio friendly? Obsessed?

I'm totally here for a COLLABO if it's something in the vein of #Beautiful or the Unforgettable Remix. That's the type of sound that the GP (I hate to use this category, but oh well) is wanting/expecting from her IMO, not Insh!tnity. A more mature R&B.

Far from sublime. I like the belting parts, but her voice during the verses is a NO for me, and the "ifinityyYyYyyYYyy" during the chorus is quite annoying. I like the witty lyrics tho.

Infinity is one of the worst songs ever recorded. Beyond crap.

Lyrics are cringeworthy, production is amateurish and vocals are embarrassing

I agree but radio won't touch ANYTHING Mimi unless there's a radio deal involved. #B was getting airplay on every station but was dropped from radio the second they had the chance. Like you said earlier though there's a disconnect with Mariah and her team and the way music is released nowadays. One off singles that aren't promoted won't amount to anything. Her forthcoming lead single week should have performances booked, a big video premiere ready with a video that's absolutely anything but soft core porn, a promo single to keep the momentum going, HOT teasers! Rememebr the #B teasers?

Thank God we don't pay attention to you, Stevvy.
From now on, after reading them comment about Mine again/Stay the night and now seeing the word "sublime" attached to smth like Infinity, I DON'T SEE YOU. I DON'T HEAR YOU. YOU DON'T EXIST TO ME.
Just a DEVIANT, PERTURBED, DERANGED, MACABRE, MANIAC, LUNATIC, IRRATIONAL PSYCHO-TO-BE.
