About jaker20 from US: You Will Never Be MC

Apple 100 (106,504) by jaker20 from US
Mariah is not working or had any deals with Apple as far as I know. Most of her recent deals including the Vegas residency and all merch related is with Amazon. So i'm not surprised they snubbed her.

Don't wanna pre-empt anything (106,497) by jaker20 from US
I was also wondering if she's planning on releasing a remixes or duets collection, or both. She's now released so many non-album collabs since Caution and dozens more before that. And in this age of streaming playlists, if they're not bundled up, they are lost having no audience.

I believe that is part of the Amazon Audible Portrait of A Portrait that's being released today.

Made for Me remix (106,482) by jaker20 from US
I like it. It does have plenty of elements from early to mid 2000s R&B. I'm actually not familiar with Muni's original, so I'm hearing it with fresh perspective. But it's a good addition to Mariah's remixes releases, because I really like the YER more than the original. I feel like she's gearing up for a remixes album. I still would rather her remixing her classics like Dreamlover, Someday, Honey, and the others, the same way that Fantasy was given so many treatments.

We need to hear this.

Daniel Bedingfield (106,320) by jaker20 from US
That is so random, but I'm here for it. Maybe it's common knowledge to some but I personally didn't know they even got together at one point in the past.

Will the Mariah Carey story ever be told? (106,304) by jaker20 from US
I've kind of been wondering about this. I really think her bio is the most open she's ever been. But we know that's not complete. I feel like there's a part 2 to it. But then she also said that "You'll never know the real me."

Not surprised (106,274) by jaker20 from US
They will induct her eventually. I have a feeling that they are just using her for social media engagements for now, lol.

People who say they didn't give it to her because they do not respect her are being over-dramatic and irrational again, but what else is new.

They nominated her which means they respect her, she just didn't make the final cut, which means I'm pretty sure they will eventually. When, who really cares?

It's really not that big a deal. I don't think that at this stage she should run her career to please them and forever trying to measure up. She's already got all of them. She's got the songwriter HOF which I'm sure is more important for her. That's what really separates herself from many of the greats.

A Daydream release in 2024 (106,273) by jaker20 from US
This is not a shade at all, but I'm just being real. I never really got the whole Taylor Swift thing, I can barely listen to a few songs. I can't really point to a specific reason why. We have hit a point where music is disposable, almost to the point of just reading their diary. Releasing an album with 31 songs and many artists are doing this because that's how the charts work. Nicky Minaj and Drake have been doing this as well. Again, not a shade, just being real. We love everybody.

The Celebration completely 100% sold out (106,245) by jaker20 from US
So they added the summer dates which is now 70% sold out. The GP just loves Mariah that's just the fact. Mariah actually seems like she's having a great time, and this time no longer needing anyone to walk. With the 30th anniversary of M Christmas, I know she'll have a lot in store. It's going to be another big year for her. If there's new music, I feel like it will be on the first quarter of 2025 because this year is stacked. I want that missing D'Brat song to be found and released.

Mariah (106,237) by jaker20 from US
These supposed jokes about Mariah's size stopped being funny 10 years ago. It is super strange to me that it's almost always coming from men.

Article: Mariah Carey sends Da Brat a sweet birthday message (106,195) by jaker20 from US
Find this song.
(Tuesday 16 April 2024; 23:05)
Da Brat and L.T. Hutton (106,194) by jaker20 from US
I hope they find this song. They both posted about it, so they must have in on someone's vault. And Mariah sounded great in it.

Spotify numbers (106,014) by jaker20 from US
I would say Caution and BER.

For Caution, even though the album itself isn't a hit, it's a reintroduction to her classics. In the age of algorithms, releasing new songs allowed for her catalog to sneak into those playlists and random streams. That wont happen if you have no music. It helps that the album itself is great.

For BER, it reintroduced Fantasy and Daydream to a new audience. BER is a great remix because it's still recognizable as a Mariah song, unlike Yes And.

I hope Mariah just keep releasing good albums and not worry about the charts. It pays forward down the road.

Music right now (105,977) by jaker20 from US
There's little true talent out there too now. The last one for me was Adele, who is no longer a major player. I'm sad that her career might be cut short, because she didn't take care of her voice. But now we're in a Barbie moment. You just have to look the part and make a few bland music, and the public will eat it.

Caution and Eternal Sunshine (105,963) by jaker20 from US
"So which brings me to why does it take Mariah so long nowadays to release an album?"

Mariah has no frequent collaborator anymore. That's her missing recipe. No artist can do it alone. Her focus on Christmas took her out of the loop. She needs a team and needs to be collaborating with new musicians, because frankly her career outlived her partnerships with JD, The-Dream or Afanasief, etc.

Mariah needs someone to bring those creative juices out of her like she does when she freestyle during her concerts.

Photoshoot (105,956) by jaker20 from US
Sorry but get over yourself. Seriously, you are so cringy, just no one here wants to tell you straight up (no pun to Paula's more original song). Mariah's not going to be have a comeback as a major pop girl if Yes And Remix even hit no.1. No one even cared about Beyonce's latest, just a few weeks ago we want her to do the same. And now that song is dropping like a rock, and even Beyonce don't care about it enough to make a video. Charts these days are useless.

SIO (105,926) by jaker20 from US
I think it's because they are sped up versions, but they may take them down at some point. But it's also genuinely one of Mariah's best bops and also one of her best videos so I'm not surprised.

What a true pop classic, Shake It Off. Tiktok is doing its thing and Mariah knows what's up by posting about it.

Mariah never lied or let anyone on (105,886) by jaker20 from US
There is more hunger for new Mariah music than in the 2010s. Mariah is more popular now after AIWFCIY hit no.1 in 2019 and everyone rediscovering her catalog. I didn't think even Mariah herself expected it and that's why she's unprepared every year. She's going to have this problem every year, but in a way it's a good problem to have.

Cardi B (105,858) by jaker20 from US
I love Cardi but I'm relieved that Mariah isn't on it, because it's just not catchy. Yes, the video is also rachet [sic]. It doesn't seem like it's not even going to debut in the top 40, which is surprising for a major current rap artist.

Angels Advocate (105,840) by jaker20 from US
Oh you are right. I was thinking of the botched release of Bye Bye lol.

The potential for Angel's Advocate release has definitely passed. I was merely pondering over the missed opportunities with that album and the could have beens in this age of collaborations and remixes. Yes, And remix is literally her 3rd most popular song right now says a lot. It makes me wonder how much she has on her vault that's from that era that actually exists, who really knows. Look at al the amount of songs on MB30th anniversary.

Angels Advocate (105,834) by jaker20 from US
If this entire album was released at that time, it would be her massive album streaming, if it was released as planned, which was literally just before Spotify exploded and all those names attached took off. A real missed opportunity, and those songs are most likely sitting in different vaults everywhere. But in fairness to Mariah though, it was a turbulent time for her, with her miscarriage and all.

There's also tracks already done that didn't get released from Timbaland, Westlife, Swizz Beatz, Jamie Fox, and others that's not on your list. Heck, Angels Cry ft Neyo is still not on any streaming service, but is one of her most popular YouTube videos.

Its been 15 years since that was announced. If that album was actually released, that would have been her streaming monster. I'm 100% sure of it.
