Oh you're right. I really want to continue experimenting her sound with newer producers because that really worked out for her with Caution. Miss Bourelly, Blood Orange etc should be brought back! I'd love to see her actually work with someone like Daniel Caesar and not one of his producers or so.. As long as the album ends up aging like the finest of wines anyway I don't mind. Points about the jazz part, whew! We should make a thread about what we'd like to see for ha next album!
TEA! Experimentation is what made Caution the classic that it is! She evolved while also retaining the stuff that's quintessentially hers imo Omg we should make a thread on it yes!On 5/4/2020 at 1:34 AM, Tama said:
"airier sounding" Nope, not here for another Charmbracelet. Something as relaxed and as sexy as Caution, however, is very much wished for.
I never said I wanted another Charmbracelet, although the lyrical prowess for that album is undeniable. While we could debate on the vocals (her vocal approach on that album was way too airy even though that album had some of her most amazing upper register belts) Imagine her combining the lyrical strength from that album alongside smt like Daydream/Caution/E=MC2, she would be UNSTOPPABLE tbhOn 5/4/2020 at 2:36 AM, Love So Soft said:

I feel like she's kinda done it at all this point nnn. I'd love to see a "lighter" pop album à la E=MC2 as Caution was quite "dark" but I'm 100% sure she'll never get back to it. I have no idea honestly she might surprise us and go full Gospel or Jazz or sumn. You legend?
Omg a lighter, airier sounding album would be amazing tbh! Ngl Caution was just right down my alley, what an amazing reinvention within the space that she's familiar with too All I want from her is to continue to shake us with amazing samples cause for example, that synth sample on GTFO almost made me cry because I never thought she would sample from Porter Robinson. Personally, I hope she comes through with some more Caution-like material but more lighter and "brighter" as you mentioned. Caution sounds really good especially if you listen to it at night ngl
If she goes jazz, I lowkey want her to try out some experimental type of stuff and not just traditional jazz. Imagine a collab between Kendrick and Mariah in a jazz-infused uptempo song or smt BuT more importantly, I want her to continue working with Dev Hynes + new producers just like what she did for Caution4

And pretty much every 2009/10 performance, i wish she had done the full song though. Her belting in this era was fire.
omg... all of these PERFORMANCES she really do amazingly with this song live tbh17 hours ago, Royale said:
It's crazy because I really thought we already had followed each other before? Whatever I'd still do it over and over! As for some 2008 R&B there are songs like Irreplaceable etc. But WY is more polished and remastered so yeah it's sound quality is ofc much superior to those songs but I think it's not really "modern"for a Murda produced song
Funnily enough I don't recall but I'm glad we finally followed each other so O god, not Irreplaceable but i get where you're coming from any predictions on how her next album is gon sound like3 hours ago, Sylk said:

It sounds like some 2008 R&B to me ngl I never tried to stream GML on repeat. I must not even imagine my plays for it because they must be tragic Also unrelated but followed you back on lfm!
I def need to listen to some old 2008 R&B tbh cause I can't remember them too much I did try a few times but it's way too long for me to stream it through and through so I getchu tbh
omg WIG at the Last FM follow, it's gon be awesome oop-2

This No shade but With You easily could've been on E=MC2 that's why I just didn't understand why it was on Caution. We love GTFO! I have streamed this song about 600 times, a mess. This song honestly aged like fine wine! I also really enjoyed title-track at the release. No shade but fan favourite Giving Me Life can't compete in terms of streams! (It's still good though, ig) even panned songs like One Mo' Gen (one of my faves, ironically) outsold!
With You on E=MC2?? that's a surprise to hear GML is honestly my personal favourite but it's soooo long and streaming it constantly takes quite a bit of work ngl One Mo' Gen is actually cute ngl1

My thoughts exactly. GTFO was fresh and a new sound for her she should've capitalized on. The memes also seemed to help a bit but hey. Don't know about you but to this day I think With You is still the worst song on the album and I got so mad they went for it. Hated it at first, but okay with it now though. As for me I think I enjoyed Caution reasonably well! 1.5k scrobbles, but overplayed A No No (shame it flopped), GTFO and Title track.
Cant wait for that, that'd be iconic. I wonder if her Team will try to focus on promoting her songs through platforms like Tiktok etc for the new era, since she has great social media presence. We'll see, but I'm excited already!
omg i forgot about those memes ugh kween of making things a meme honestly, i love her so much I do agree with you that I think With You is also the weakest song on the album but I think it's mostly because it doesn't fit on the album like AT ALL. We had all these intricacies and beautiful production with the other songs + the atmospheric sound to each track but With You doesn't have that same "night" vibe if that makes sense. With You is a great song if played separately though, I do think it's one of her best if you ignore the fact that it's on the album in the first place hihi.
I don't think I overplayed ANN or title track but GTFO had like 1.2k plays and The Distance had like 600-700 plays I agree that focusing on promoting through stuff like Tiktok is gon help. Imagine if she gives birth to a meme and the song ends up smashing bc of it1

Yes! I think it has to do with how fast the Caution era went. I didn’t even have time to get sick of it and they moved on And definitely! We’ll be streaming, having listening parties, spamming we like we did for the past three years!
Yeah, I felt like they could've capitalized on GTFO's success for example and push it harder since it was different from what she used to offer. The sample she took for the production was fresh and she worked with new producers. Imagine a top 20 for the song Instead, they decided to be safe and released With You, which did well on AC radio but dassit
After that, they decided to push that releasing album tracks (The Distance etc) narrative to push the album Xtina style, which Moo indicated that she was hesitant to do but was like "whatever" about it
Meanwhile, I kinda overplayed Caution (3.5k plays or so) so im ready for a new album Excited to having a listening party with yall tho!2

Am I the only one who’s not that eager for an album yet? I mean I sure am always excited for new Mariah music but I feel like we got Caution two minutes ago. But then again, the earlier we get it, the better. Not waiting five years again for an album lmao.
I get you honestly since the Caution era happened pretty fast and their strategy didn't do well in the long run There's potential in the album that got wasted honestly But nevertheless, having a new record out sooner or later is better than no record for five years I agree1

MC16 could happen within the next year, she's been in the studio and has hinted that the next album is coming sooner than we all think. We need a Ariana-Mariah collab too tbh.
Maybe, but I still doubt it a little because with the recording process for Caution, she remained pretty consistent by letting us know (on social media) that she was working on the record throughout the year. We haven't seen her posting much about recording a new project for this one just yet but I hope I'm wrong ofc0

it would be a concept omg!! a song like Portrait or something
yes tbh! i think it would be amazing
and then in 2021 hopefully we'll get a Drake-Mariah collab smash hit the other day Drake posted a pic of Moo out of the blue on his IG story so that's why rumours about that got sparked again1

yes i am!! She apparently had alot more stuff planned for this year, I hope she gets to release the book i cant wait for it

I agree with your points, but I think what really makes the difference to me is the drastic change in tone from 2013 to 2015. We can agree to disagree, even though the last part of your argument was relevant.
Feel free to do it! I'll be supporting your thread.
But what we can all get behind is that the Stella years were some of her worst years yet I'm glad she moved on and released Caution cause girl, it got to the point where I almost unstanned her. It was like I didn't know her at all3
gosh, Psycho is lit rally SOTY, definitely one of the year's top songs
with each listen, the song grows on me even more. Idk why the song makes me emotional listening to it now, especially after the entire Wendy situation2
