The song is the perfect mix of airy Mariah vocals, clever metaphorical lyrics, and a little diva attitude. This whole top ten has really been a challenge, but this top 3 is downright torture to rank. Mariah shows off literary prowess, using allusions to reference several of her own songs so seamlessly that a non-fan might not even notice.
How Mariah Carey proved her literary prowess via lyrical allusions. This gospel inspired ballad finds Mariah offering us the most Holy diss track every recorded.
She addresses a number of people in her life who have hurt her, wishing them well with quotes from the Bible. Essentially, Mariah is a multifaceted artist, and this is such a unique album in her catalogue because of how diverse it is.
Using vibrant imagery and impeccably vivid storytelling, she takes the listener back to those days to deliver a heartbreakingly honest depiction of her life back then. Vocally, she delivers two of her signatures: rap-style, rhythmic singing and some of her most gut wrenching soulful belting at the end. Born out of and as a means of triumphing over adversity, hip-hop is the perfect compliment to this song of survival.
That's what my jeweler says. I haven't gotten the looks in mind just yet, but we're going to figure it out soon enough. Carey's made a pop album with equal parts levity and gravity. Expect it to soundtrack much of the summer and beyond.
Fortunately for Carey, the tabloid-tailored real-life back story on one side and the producer's craft on the other matter more than the art of singing in this particular fairy tale. Maybe emancipation isn't a continuing procedure; maybe it only comes once. Sawdey concluded his review on a mixed note, stating " the second act of Mariah's comeback doesn't wisely expand her sound: it instead succumbs to the blueprint so carefully laid out by its predecessor, a pointless remake that exists only because it has to.
If you ever had a doubt as to its formulaic nature, you need to look no further than its title. Long live the Diva. It was in part of celebrating her eighteenth number one single, " Touch My Body ".
In April , the album had a resurgence in popularity. This led to it reaching number one on the iTunes albums charts in several countries including the United States, and top 10 in several countries worldwide.
