Has Mariah Carey’s Voice ruined her career or is it her new music?
It’s no secret that Mariah Carey hasn’t been taken serious as an artist for a few years now.
Many people say Mariah Carey’s voice is gone and that her childish antics prevent her from being the “Diva” she once was.
This dialogue was prompted because the other day I stumbled across Mariah’s last album “Memoirs of an Imperfect angel” in my iTunes. I hadn’t paid much attention to the project seeing as the singles weren’t something I expected from a singer who was responsible for “Hero” and “We Belong Together”.
I felt the first single “Obsessed” was extremely childish and bought into a gimmick, which Mariah Carey does NOT need. So I’m listening to the album, and I’m like wait. Mariah Carey can still SING! I was like why do people keep saying she cant?
Then I sat and really listened to what I was listening to. “Up of My face” is a catchy song and gets me hype, but it’s stupid as hell. And the good records on the album likes “It’s a wrap” and “Standing O” never made it radio.
So I figured. Mariah Carey can sing, she’s just singing stupid ass songs!!! Who really wants to hear Mariah singing Eminem diss records? Who really wants to hear Mariah Carey on a track with Nicki Minaj?
What we want to hear is MARIAH CAREY. Not this bullshit she has serviced to us as of late. We want to hear her sing records that make sense, songs that display emotion. We want classic Mariah Carey.
So in closing, Yes Mariah can still sing, she’s just singing stupid shit.
