Money came on shuffle the other day and it slayed tf out of me! It is actually one of the better bops on this album.

I hope her and Mike Will get back in studio together cause Faded really should've been a hit!

I don't care what ya'll will say.

But YDKWTD was one of the best songs released that year.

but i think she shouldve cared much for that project and make sure that the GP/fans gets whats best in terms of promo and single covers and single choices, coz at the end of the day,its her name that will be draged for her qork and not the team or label
She always had a convenient excuse when she is flopping or about to flop.

Does she realize it’s her brand irrespective of which label she’s at. Fans care about HER music and not what label pushes it out there. But then again, maybe because the label knows this is their last one with her, they couldn’t care less about pushing the project.

Yeah.
Faded was def a highlight.
My ultra fave off that record right after #Beautiful.
Just a DEVIANT, PERTURBED, DERANGED, MACABRE, MANIAC, LUNATIC, IRRATIONAL PSYCHO-TO-BE.

Girl... just shut up. She’s never said anything about this album other than the arm injury.

Gave this a listen today. Cry is a great album opener. Thirsty, You Don't Know What To Do, Meteorite and Money are certified bops. #Beautiful is already a Mariah classic imo. I also don't get the hate You're Mine (Eternal), such a cute ballad. But i could've done without One More Try, now that's a borefest. Overall, this is a good album.

^^ glad you like the album :D I agree about You're Mine, it's a cute ballad, but it was a wrong single choice.

She did great with this album. But I think as a few people pointed out, it just for some reasons feels unpolished....

The label should produce a GH to close the contract instead a new album!
don't disturb this groove!

Or ex label GH?

If it were just an IDJ collection, then they should include:

Through The Rain
Bringing on the Heartbreak (flop but fan fav)
It’s Like That
We Belong Together
Shake It Off
Get Your Number (international edition)
Fly Like a Bird (US)
Don’t Forget About Us
Touch My Body
Bye Bye (US and Japan)
I’ll Be Loving U Long Time (this song needs more exposure)
Obsessed
HATE U
Beautiful
You Don’t Know What To Do

And a couple of new songs.

The Art of Letting Go was a worse choice :lol:

Both songs are cute ballads but not to songs to start an era.

The label would be better off closing the era with the apology album Shoulda Woulda Coulda - Island Def Jam: Missed Opportunities

The One
I Only Wanted
So Lonely
Migrate
Cruise Control
Side Effects
I'm That Chick
For The Record
Betcha Gon' Know
Standing O
Thirsty
Meteorite
Money

bonus track: Triumphant with all the dreadful rappers replaced by dembabies.

^That will never happen becoz Mimi co-owns the masters for her materials during IDJ days.
