Nikki / other thoughts (42,646) by Marissa from USA

Nikki, the only response I can give to your post is yesssssssss. (Pardon my enthusiasm, but I've just had a strong hot toddy. ) If MC wants to make waves at this point with no promo (no I do not consider that redundant ET Canada interview promo, nothing new was revealed), she needs to debut an attention grabbing title. Something that the general public gets, not some cryptic title that only lambs can comprehend. I think it is safe to say that this album is not on the gp's radar at all. No one but the lambily has the patience to constantly check MC's twitter and instagram to find no enlightening news whatsoever. If it's not obvious, the gp doesn't care. No one wants to go on a scavenger hunt for album info. I'm a lamb and even I'm sick of all of the frantic searching and speculation. I'm at the point where I just want to say, "Call me when the album's ready."

Short album title vs. long title album (42,645) by ratchetgirl from USA

Since one-name album titles are popular, many people want Mariah to follow the trend to have a short album name. However, the last time she did that (Glitter), it didn't appear so well. It's not that the length of the name may be short that affected its outcome, just the events leading up to it. So that's why Mariah's comeback album had a long name (The Emancipation of Mimi). Many people believe that Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel is where she disappeared, which I find to be stupid. So maybe she should have a short album title name because it would be the opposite of a long title name. Anyways, I'm still excited for the new album and coming here very chance I got to check and see if there is any new information surrounding the album. Well, the 20 day mark is today, and I need to know something by the end of the day or I'll die. But Mariah is smart and she'll find a way to make up for the lack of promotion and information soon.

Album release (42,644) by Mikey from USA

I think it's strange that the album is coming out in less than a month and there is no new follow up single or really any heavy promotion. I have a feeling that the album will be released along with some big anouncement. Thing is, the anouncement has to be pretty big given the lack of promotion up to this point.

Head Over Heels (42,643) by RJJ12 from USA

What does everyone think about Allure's Head Over Heels? When I first heard the song I saw the video first and remember thinking how similar it was to Mariah's vibe, then for her to show up at the end of the video and find out they were the first artists on her Crave label and that she wrote the song. I remember reading an interview of the group saying the producer had the beat but they couln't get a good song written. Then Mariah came in and heard the track, took it with her and finished writing the song that day. I'm assuming she helped arrange the song as well. I've always wondered if it was meant to be on Butterfly but she gave it to them. I also wondered how she would sound if she sung it herself. It would be great to hear her sing songs she wrote for other artists such as "Last Chance" or Blaque's "Don't Go Looking For Love" or 7 Mile's "After". It would be great to get an EP of her singing songs she wrote for others. I remember her saying back then that "After" was one of her favorite songs she has ever written.

New album (42,639) by Marky Mark from Australia

I'm liking something simple as well for an album title. "Next Chapter" is simple and nice. I still gun for her using "Sweet Soul Odyssey" as an album title especially with Stevie Wonder on the album and both #Beautiful and The Art of Letting Go having a soulful vibe. In fact "Soulful Vibe" would be a nice album title too lol.

#Beautiful still at #2 in Gambia (42,637) by KaizenOcean from Italy

This is the current ranking of the song on the worldwide iTunes charts. Does anybody know why Beautiful is so popular in Gambia a year later? Everytime I listen to this track I'm always "hectic inside". Clearly it's her best pop tune in years. Alas, the video doesn't bring anything interesting to the table, but the sonic sharpness of the song remains unmatched in her most recent catalogue. High hopes for the new album. I want it to reflect who she really is as a musician and person, but still I'd see her indulging too much in mundanity (E=MC2) and hip hop musicality (Charmbracelet) as a major misstep. Nevertheless, I suppose she has incorporated some elements of Daydream, Butterfly and TEOM in the new music, since Underneath The Stars, Butterfly and We Belong Together are among her most beloved songs. #Beautiful appears on the Pitchfork top 100 songs of 2013, which says a lot about how smart was the idea of joining forces with a new artist and how enchanting is the song.

Album title, next single, and other thoughts (42,636) by B from USA

I hope the album title is short and simple. Something that is catchy but isn't childish like Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel. I loved The Emancipation of Mimi and E=MC2 but hated Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel. It was too childish. She needs a title that while still playful and young makes people take her and the album she's promoting serious. TEOM made people take her work serious as did E=MC2. Memoirs however was derided for being too long and too childish. She also needs a fresh single. An uptempo would be a welcome relieve to the countless mid tempo singles she's releases in the last decade. Critics have also said she needs to change things up a bit. She doesn't need to do something radical, she just needs to change up the type of record she releases. #Beautiful was her biggest hit in years and it had a throwback Motown sound, whereas You're Mine(Eternal) sounds like 2005 Mariah Carey. She needs a video that is an event. A video that will be played. She needs to reveal the title or the cover work asap and start doing the rounds. 20 some days until the album is released.

Re: Darryle (42,634) by Billy from Greece

I think you have your information a bit mixed up. "If We" has nothing to do with "Firecracker" or "Loverboy". Another "singer's" song was intentionally made to imitate the vibe of "If We".
(Tuesday 15 April 2014; 20:00)

Loverboy sample (42,633) by Darryle from Sagamihara, Japan

As you know Mariah couldn't use the Firecracker sample for Loverboy. If you want to hear what a song of Mariah's would've sounded like with that song, listen to If We from the Glitter soundtrack. There's no actual sampling on the track but it was made to sound similar to it.

Pre sale (42,632) by Darryle from Sagamihara, Japan

So the pre sale you guys got is like when Walmart put up the album a while back with no info. Except they had a title. That sorta sucks. I was hoping for some new insight on the album. Oh well, thanks for replying and telling where the pre sale was.
(Tuesday 15 April 2014; 13:38)

Presales (42,631) by Will from England

Yeah, we had something similar on Amazon UK, where they had Mariah's TBA album up for presale. It should be noted that it was quickly removed after a few hours. One thing I've also noticed is the high price. It was priced in the UK at being £15 or something like that. The Dutch presale seems to be at a similar pricing (£16 or so). So that's around the same price for a film more or less. Of course, whether or not these presales are legit or not is another matter, but there does some to be consistency. Anyway, hopefully we shall find out soon.

Working smarter, not harder (42,625) by nikki from usa

I'm hoping something is in the works under that theme from the promotional front. People have forgotten about this album other than the lambs. They were excited when Beautiful came out, but that was a year ago. You know, if she just titled the album, "Kiss My Ass" she wouldn't have to promote it. The gossip columnists and social media alone would do that. "Kiss My Ass will be on shelves soon." "What does Kiss My Ass sound like?" Mariah began the healing process of Letting Go until she ended with Kiss My Ass. I wish she'd let go of the label, the "formula", and just let the creativity guide her. I'd love to have an album that doesn't have a "flow", but just delivers MC at her best in everything she brings to the table. She can have her My Alls, Fantasys, Heats, Close My Eyes, Sprungs, Lullabys, etc. Just an eclectic mix. Why does she have to wait for a remix to do dance or something edgy? Just bring it all and throw out the rule book. If the label picks out sucky singles then complain to the lambs, because it's obvious we'll tell the label what we want to hear/buy, then they'll oblige. Supply and demand.
(Tuesday 15 April 2014; 1:49)

Singles (42,624) by Justin from USA

So I think the original YME is done and has peaked. However the remixes are doing exceptionally well. I can't wait until May 6th. And I also can't wait to see which big record company she will sign with and maybe they will have a much better management like LA Reid or Benny Medina.

Smile (42,615) by Matt Summers from United States of America

If there can be 1 song on the album that will make me smile as bright as the sun, I will be satisfied. Not that I'm not happy with her work the past decade, in fact it's been incredible, filled with heart-felt songs (We Belong Together). But to use Emotions or Dreamlover for example, whenever I listen to them, I can't help but smile from ear to ear because the vibes I get from those songs. Even Fantasy. And I'm sure all of you know the vibes that I speak of that just make you smile as bright as the sun. She hasn't had a song like that in a while, for me at least. She's mostly released flavorful songs or just love songs. Emotions and Dreamlover just make me high. Naturally. I wanna feel a new breed of a "Mariah high". If that makes sense.

Webmaster (42,610) by Stephen from London, United Kingdom

I'm not bothered whether my messages get a thumbs up or down, as it's only a matter of opinion, but clearly there are some juvenile members on the board who don't know how to express themselves properly, and are indeed using the thumbs down in blanket approach to messages, which defeats the point. Therefore, I think it's a good idea to only have a thumbs up option. Clearly common sense is not all that common, as some members of this board appear to lay testament to.

Webmaster from the Netherlands (42,608) by Carlos Jaramillo from USA

I think that would be a fantastic idea. I think we are all so passionate in our beliefs regarding Mariah, her antics and her direction that, it almost puts us on defense mode. Remember, Mariah, at some point or another, has been able to reach us all "individually" and touch a special place in our hearts so we stand steadfastly behind our view points and convictions of Mariah, which ultimately results in impulsively disregarding other's opinions and condescending to them. (I catch myself doing it frequently on here.) The thumbs down permits the opportunity to be "negative". Versus, just having a thumbs up only allows for positive responders to demonstrate their appreciation for said post. If you don't like what that person says, you just move on and, no one has to feel hated on. Great, great idea webmaster.
