09/13/2018



The first song from her forthcoming new album. Not excited yet? Me neither.

The title was the first hint that the song would be another entry in a long string of inferior Mariah singles. neutral

I had to take a listen to this new track. It's just...meh. neutral shrug It's just a throwaway track to hopefully build up to the real stuff, but it's not giving me a whole lot of confidence.

OH my gosh. I'm shocked. I really like it. It doesn't sound like she's trying too hard.

I like it too, not on the level of her early stuff, but I think it's a really nice song. I know Mariah doesn't have the voice she used to, but even so, listening to this it immediately became apparent to me that she has something, a certain warmth in her voice that's missing from Ariana Grande who's often compared to her. And I think Ariana's a talented singer. Production on this song is also fine, minimalistic and not distracting. And the F-bomb in there is actually more subtle than I expected.

I love Mariah but she has not been interesting in two decades for the most part. Its boring same tempo etc... whisper vocals, sexy video looks I have seen this before

Boring! Sounds like the same producer who did "I Don't" with the repeat-note drums (awful).

No one wants vulgarity from her, either. Keep it in the vault, Mariah!

Welp, Ariana Grande just dropped a whole album missing that certain warmth. If that's her main competition these days, Mariah's still going to have to do something other than one boring single per year.

There is a new Ariana song on the radio. I have to look up the lyrics because I can't understand the words, not clear?

While not taking anything away from Mariah, Ariana is what Mariah wishes she still was today. (And I'm not one to pit women against each other like that.)

The thing is, Mariah is older now. Not out of touch or anything, but voices change with age. In another thread, we talked about how Michael Jackson often had his songs a half-step or full-step lower than the record, to partially save his voice on tour (which is grueling) and because he aged.

Mariah needs to do the same thing. She is 48, and God bless her for still making music, but she doesn't have a 22-year-old voice anymore. Even Auntie ReRe's voice changed over time. The cooing she does in this shit songs (read: pregnant pigeon) is a cheeky way to gloss over her not being able to hit the notes she could 25 years ago.

Ariana will face this in another 20 years (she's 25 now). Everyone does. Age deepens a voice. I love Ariana Grande's voice. It's strong and solid. If you ever hear her isolated mic on YouTube, the bitch is sangin' like a MFer!

The comparisons between Ariana and Mariah were obviously going to happen in the public. Their voices are similar but not identical. That whistle register tho! My God, they're both brilliant at it and few can pull it off! Even Whitney didn't have that whistle register. She just had power like Aretha. Whitney really fucked up her gift, though. Mariah's only real obstacle is age, not smoking crack.

In short, Ariana can sing as well as Mariah and these days (with a 23-year gap between them) she can sing better than Mariah on any given day. Again, not taking away from Mariah's accomplishments and legacy. She'll forever be amazing. Maybe she should start singing songs that fit her voice more and still sound fresh and new on radio, etc.

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

I remember taking singing class in college. I learned a lot! And I also dabble with piano and guitar. Those of us who play instruments have a good ear for music. And the voice teacher used to tell me that I think too much, very true!

One of my favorite Mariah songs is: "Anytime You Need a Friend"(the remix).

OK but the thread is about "GTFO". Thoughts on that song?

Taking into account the kind of music she has been making over the past 12 years or so, I think this is pretty decent. I'm really relieved there were no rappers on the song. I kept waiting for one to drop in at any second.

I just kind of take this track for what it is. She has made it crystal clear that she is not even remotely interested in returning to her Columbia sound.
