next to toni braxton,
mariah is pretty much one of the last living early 90s divas.
janet started in the 80s so i won’t count her.
i might be missing another legend so correct me if i’m wrong.
so i got a chance to listen to “caution” over the weekend.
i loved it.
it’s a mood.
the theme of this 10 track album is being in a new relationship.
one break up song (GTFO).
it tells a story of breaking up with someone and starting something new.
the honeymoon stage of a rebound of sorts.
i can dig it.
it was current,
but still gave me classic mariah.
one thing i stan about her is she always incorporates hiphop flawlessly in her music.
you can already imagine this track was on repeat for a whole hour:
that song is the entire knock.
mariah is alleged to sell 40 to 45k in pure sales.
around the same amount in streaming.
gone are the days when a mariah record would sell 1 million copies first week.
anyone else for that matter.
she has solidified her legendary status tho.
her old shit is selling just as good as her new shit.
“glitter” being one that recently got resurrected.
i love this soundtrack.
anything now she puts out is for the lambily and fun.
lowkey: she has a track for japanese release called “runaway”.
i gotta hear it.
