I think it's pretty obvious that she was going to sing Emotions live (with the prerecorded high notes that ended up playing). We Belong Together was going to be completely lipped i believe. She even says something like "this is just the album version" or something like that at the beginning.

This is her best NYE performance, imo.

This is a perfect example of how she probably would have sang it.

Jenny Jenny McCarthy said that Mariah should stop blaming the producers and said this:
“Now I think, and if I try to give a guess of what happened, I think Mariah was nervous as hell. I think she chose really tough songs to try to sing along with. I think 'Emotions,' that song, I mean her voice is not there anymore. I don't believe there was a problem with her inner ears. I just don't. I think she used it as an excuse. The monitors on the stage are there, by the way, to blast out the songs to the musician in case this happens."

This video is the perfect illustration of the fact she is squandering her talent and relying on 3 standard tropes to get by. How many more videos will we get with her petting herself in some bizarre lingerie and running out of mansions/weddings/opulence. She's not serving anything new. Its just so depressing that in a time where she could be at her creative peak she instead has been mismanaged and musically I can't see this setting any charts ablaze. It would be a solid album track, but as a lead single to an era or album is baffling. :(

All the YG parts (whoever he is) was horrible and ruined the whole song, imo. Is he this years rent-a-rapper? :think:

All I hope for now is that the second single is called "Know Her" :laugh:

The video is pretty terrible unfortunately - perhaps one of her very worst. The song is ok, but would have simply been a forgettable album track on many of her past records, so it's worrying that this is leading a new album campaign. Both song & video together are extremely "seen and heard it all before" - I agree with VivaMGMVE's points. :(

I honestly feel she still has the talent to be a much better artist than she's currently choosing to portray herself as. I know it's her prerogative to present herself in the way she chooses to, but I think it's a detriment to her artistry & to her legacy. Sure, her success of the 90s will always be enough for her to be regarded as a legendary artist, but right here and now in 2017, sadly I think many regard her as being a bit of a joke at this point, and dare I say it... not very classy. I base this on her horrendous reality TV show too. Everything about her image right now is so cheap. (For the record I'm not suggesting she needs to cover herself from head to toe, but she'd flatter herself so much more if she focused on one asset per outfit... haha).

I know nothing will change though. I just wish she had people in her team who'd dare to suggest new styles & images for her (I assume she doesn't), in an attempt to change it up & do herself some justice.

She said she's "creating singles and not focusing on an album" at the moment. She did another collab with a male artist and are filming a video in a few weeks. Not sure who it is though. She also recorded another song with dem babies.

I just saw the report about the dem babies collaboration on ET and the Facebook Live clip. Thanks, :hug: I didn't know the effort was not inclusive of an album. Interesting....
