I’ll be honest and say that I was hopeful in hearing that Mariah and Trey were collaborating again, but I do not like this song. This is the second collab that Mariah’s done with an R&B singer I LOVE and it just doesn’t meet expectations or the hype.
I’m not sure why two videos had to be released. The videos are exactly the same. Trey is featured in the initial one, he’s just not singing. I wish that there was more story to it than just her floating in and out water like it’s a remake of ‘Fantasy.’ I’m not counting Mariah out. I won’t count her out until I’ve heard her upcoming album in it’s entirety. The song isn’t horrible, but it won’t be on my rotation. Not impressed. I will say that I like this collab better than the one with Miguel. That track just didn’t do it for me vocally or visually.
Diana Ross released her 6th solo album on February 10, 1976. It became her second self-titled album following her 1970 solo debut. The album featured 9 tracks, 4 on one side and 5 on the other along with hits ‘Theme From Mahogany (Do You Know Where You’re Going To’) , ‘Love Hangover,’ and ‘Smile.’
The album reached #4 on the Billboard 200, #4 on the R&B Album chart and became Ross’ best selling album since her 1973 release, Touch Me In The Morning. It went Gold in the UK with over 100,000 copies sold. The album became her first since her 1970 debut to spawn over 4 hit singles. The album scored Ross a Grammy nomination for Best R&B Performance, Female Artist and a Oscar nomination for Best Song.
The album was rereleased in 2012 in a dual disc package filled with remastered and alternative versions of the original songs along with previously unreleased tracks.
