    Same for me, the album hit me like a sledgehammer, I had the lowest expectations after hearing GTFO and knowing before that we had I don't and infinity....what can you expect after that? But then she did what she does best: prove me wrong

    Once again, a lamb should manage her... we simply know best.

    I would have launched Caution with a live Unplugged concert in which she had to sing the entire album, just like Shining Through The Rain.

    I would then have booked Time's Square GMA/Today and have her perform the lead single and single #2.

    Single #2 would have already been remixed and the video would have been ready for January 1st, 2019.

    I would have sent her to Corden for some skits and booked SNL for her to perform GML and the first 2 singles.

    During Xmas, I would have worked her to sign albums in the UK, France and Germany ... of Merry Xmas and Caution.

    In January, I would have sent her back to Japan and Korea to do some TV promo. And book Graham Norton for the UK.

    A cute visit to The View and a performance on the Ellen Show for February are a given if I were her manager.

    I would have also booked the Grammy stage, so they could finally induct AIWFCIY into the Grammy Hall of Fame and let her perform a medley.

    By now... single #3 would be ready, #Caution, which would also feature an A-profile guest act.

    I would have also contacted VH1 for reviving Divas Life... "In Honor of Aretha Franklin" for the original line-up to sing their best Aretha covers, seeing Mariah & Céline collaborate on Chain of Fools... In light of the #MeToo movement, the grand finale would not be Natural Woman (which would be relegated to open the show), be substituted by Respect.

    The summer is around and I would hire great producers to edit the MC25 documentary which includes shots from her 2017 and 2018 Christmas shows - behind the scenes and which would coincide with the release of Mariah Carey Live at St. John's Divine in November 2019 / Merry Christmas 25.

    In Decmber, I would push AIWFCIY 25 with no $ limits spent, ensuring the song to finally become the Coca Cola Christmas jingle.

    AND in spring 2020 I would announce Mariah's next album, MC16.

    ^ I would happily take at least 50% of this in 2019.
    She was kind of fragile and she had a lot to grapple with but basically she kept it all inside ...

    It’s not about the quality of the album it’s how the era has been treated. Far too fast, and there’s so much potential it’s criminal, maybe I’ll eat my words but it’s very disappointing thus far.

    She was "rehearsing" that song with her BG singers right after the Vegas Residency ended.
    She even did an impromptu version last year during one of her Xmas shows.

    I hope so. I love that song and she did a good job with it last year on Vegas.



    Audience loved it.

    Sometimes I don't think it's a manager thing. I mean, Melissa is excellent and she knows what she has to do. I'm 100% sure that Mariah is responsible of all the decisions made and I feel like she doesn't want to do all those things that stevyy listed - and it's quite frustrating 'cause her Eras could be way more successful.

    I told you in the beginning of this era that it was being mishadled for some reason...

    I don't know if it's because Mariah just doesn't care, if it's because of her team, or the songs or everything together. The album has a few good jams, it's a shame the public doesn't get to know them.

    At this stage, Mariah (IF she really is into it) should do something different for once. I continue to think that she is really tired of it all and the tours are just a money grabber. Since she got divorced (or married) everything is half-done, way too many mistakes for a pro like her, lack of passion, lazyness, way too much it's-happening-not-happening situations.

    I agree with all of this.
    at the end of the day, it's Mariah's fault.
    She is the common factor in all these mistakes.
    we can't blame Stella because she is no longer part of the team.

    At the same time she keeps giving her all at the studio, and we should be grateful for that. Some veteran acts lost their music identity some time ago and keep trying to stay current by doing lots of random collaborations with hot acts. I can live with mishandled eras, as long as she keeps doing the same quality of music.

    exactly.
    the music isn't the problem, it's the era itself
    the album promo literally lasted 1 week....

    I can understand not promoting in December, because of Christmas .
    But as soon as January hit, they should have restarted promoting the album.

    we haven't got a single interview or performance since November!
    MESS!

    It's a positive sign that Mariah is supporting the album by touring. I'll give her that. I know she's rehearsing for the tour right now, but it would have been nice/smart had she gone on a talk show last week/earlier this week to discuss and hype the tour. Maybe she will visit a late night show during her New York tour date???

    Otherwise... we're not going to see much from Mariah while touring these next couple of months. The label just needs to go ahead a ship a single (A No No or not) to radio and at least let her TRY to have a shot at another hit to build momentum for Caution.

    Yeah, I agree with this.
    She can do better commercially for sure, promo was bleak (she even didn't do TV promo for the tour), but as long as she's serving this quality as an artist/musician, I'm fine.
    I don't see the lack of passion nor the laziness. She's been working her ass off.
    Maybe she isn't worried by commercial success (anymore), and that's ok.

    GTFO is currently the only Caution track among her 40 most streamed songs on Spotify. It will probably make the VEVO top 50 eventually.
