    I saw some criticism of that line saying it was wordy for the sake of it but that person failed to recognise how it lines up rhythmically with "babygirl" in the line before.

    HER MIND

    I hope we get European Caution tour dates as soon as these Christmas shows are out of the way

    I have a feeling I'm getting a :ireland: date - the album did chart at number sixty-three here after all

    I’d love her to tour with the album over here.

    Annoyingly the vinyl keeps getting pushed back. I need that limited edition cover in my life :disco:

    I'm loving the fact that (some)(...ok a couple) French gays are going crazy over this because the album title sounds intentionally like COCHONNE ie DIRTY SLUT.

    I've been streaming the whole album for days. Love every second of it. Not a single note, key, lyric or run out of place. DIVA.

    I think it's safe to say that our sweet @dUb doesn't have to force himself to like any of it lol

    Is there any hope for it after Christmas? Surely the downside of the huge success of AIWFCIY is that nobody outside of the fanbase is interested in her for anything else for the last month of the year.

    But you’d hope that the massive amount of publicity she gets at Christmas would give the perfect platform to mention new music- her stock must be at its highest.

    Interestingly, I noticed “Merry Christmas” is in the top 20 albums in the US currently. Which probably shows how bad sales are and shows up “Caution” even more, to be fair...

    Delusional lamb etc etc but I’d like to think so. The A No No remix with Lil Kim, Cardi B & Missy Elliot will get a bit of traction and I still think The Distance has the potential to be a hit.

    This is why they shouldn’t keep releasing albums so close to Christmas. AIWFCIY becomes such a huge distraction and harks back to a very different era in her career.

    I think the album is probably finished.

    Of course it’s finished. She won’t do any promo after Christmas and why would they bother releasing anything else off such a DEAD DUCK?

    And how is “The Distance” going to be a hit now when it’s already been out a while to UNIVERSAL DISINTEREST?

    A No No remix could be a gimmicky hit if they can get it organised but I doubt they will.

    The remix is listed on genius.com and this screenshot is also flying about - was there any element of No Scrubs in the album version?

    Maybe they could release a video that isn’t terribly exciting but gives people the opportunity to make memes and gifs to share across social media.

    I definitely think that is the way that this album campaign could be saved.

    This is all terribly disappointing as I genuinely feel that she released a brilliant album, that is actually on brand, current and not embarrassing

    this is so TRUE and SO SAD at the same time, long gone are the days of a well done, well produced video and mark it as such an event. Nowadays people are sharing video GIFs and MEMES of said video in whatsapp messages and Instagram Stories :( and if your video doesn't reach that level of impact you're a nobody

    But she hasn’t. Caution really isn’t that good.

    This ABORTION of a project has made visit “The Emancipation of Mimi” though. Although it could do with a bit of pruning, the good stuff really is marvellous and I do think eventually “We Belong Together” will rightly be her signature song.

    OK I NEED TO VENT CAUSE THIS THREAD DIDN'T LET ME SLEEP PROPERLY LAST NIGHT

    Mimi needs to get off her high horse and actually promote, now I'm not saying she should get her ass on BBC BREAKFAST but aside that the album should have been released back in Sept-Oct, she at least could have appeared in SNL which still pulls decent numbers and is still a nice platform to plug in your latest hot shit.
    She needed to do Fallon, GMA, all the works; she needs to shed off a bit of that untouchable diva image who feels like her shit doesn't stink well guess what love it does and you released it in aural form (Caution in vinyl OUT NOW!)
    (J/K I do like the album)

    I know she makes a living from touring and AIWFCY royalties but she needs to make herself visible again, surely she has money to burn to appear in a handful of TV perfs and stop relying on memes and gifs, she's not Ariana unfortunately.

    Caution turned up in my Christmas present pile. Hopefully that’ll springboard it back up the charts.

    Didn’t sell, still excellent, featured on several end-of-year best album lists, no word on further promo

    How many buzz singles were there, again? Three? Four?

    Poor love won’t know what to do with herself. I suggest a WINE RANGE modelled by Mimi herself in various glamorous poses and all sourced from her exclusive AGNEAU vineyard. Merlot for breakfast, Côtes du Rhône for lunch, Chardonnay for the rest of the day :disco:

    Poor Mariah. Surely her EMBARRASING VIDEOS will have more streaming than Caution. :shock:
