Running on stardust
- Nov 27, 2007
I think it was the right lead single, as you say basically anything would have gone #1 especially given how huge and front-loaded digital sales were at that time. The issue was that they went with a WBT retread (although much worse) for single #2 that killed her momentum. There was also some bad press around her vox for the first time, and that "stop singing my part now baby" miming blunder.Surely anything Mariah released after Emancipation would have gone to #1?
I don’t mind TMB, but I do wonder if her second wind might not have lasted longer had she released something a bit more... substantive?
