New Mariah thread

I couldn't reply to the other one, so thought I'd start this so we can continue discussion of the album and tour

Portrait is definitely a highlight on the album, and I realized the setlist provided was actually for her tour titled number ones in asia. I wonder what the new setlist will look like

Her new but short album, Caution, will likely be the bulk of it, and she said on Kelly Ripa that she will bring back some Glitter tracks (no kidding!).

It would be fun to see her do glitter tracks, but it would be better focusing on the classics I think. Does she do them regularly on her tours?

Yes, that's all she has been doing, Number Ones tour and #1 to Infinity in Vegas before that.

The album debuted at #5 on the Billboard Top 200 Album Charts. It debuted at #1 on the Billboard R&B Album Chart. Those are pretty respectable numbers for a veteran female R&B singer. There are some potential strong singles on the album, the title track being the obvious one. But, sadly, she probably wouldn't get any airplay outside of R&B AC radio.

This is so true. I wish the pop outlets would realize her lasting appeal.

Loved "The Distance" the first time I heard it. "GTFO" confuses me. She's had so many songs in the past and present ("The Distance" for example) where she will bleep out the 'F' word but in this song she says it like it's disappearing tomorrow from existence. Girl, what?!?!? eek I needed that F bomb dropped in "The Distance"....what happened, hunty? hmph!

I think part of the reason I like most of this album is that it’s short and to the point, it gets repetitive because she still is stuck in a groove with her tempos, but I am all for 30-40 minute 10 track records, one of the best this year for me was Camila Cabello, quick to the point not overproduced or slick sounding almost no guests except for that blip on Havana she understands what the term MY record is.

Oh man I was totally with you until you cited Camila's record. What a snore! Now THAT'S a bitch stuck in her tempo.
