With Epic records now tasked with revitalising her ageing brand, Mariah Carey has found herself on the receiving end of remarks sent her way by her ‘One Sweet Day’ collaborator Nathan Morris.
A member of R&B group Boyz II Men, the entertainer recently shared his thoughts on the state of Mariah’s singing voice and general approach to her artistry on Facebook.
His debate-sparking assessment below…
Morris’ remarks will no doubt rub Mariah fans the wrong way, but we struggle to see anything inaccurate in what he said.
For, though using Fifth Harmony to introduce Mimi to a new audience is a cute idea, it won’t solve Epic’s epic problem with Mimi…her voice.
For some, her sales and accolades yesteryear leave the star with “nothing to prove.”
However, the fact remains that she doesn’t make new material or book new shows for fun, nor spend time and money putting performances together for them to be ridiculed because of…her voice.
With a new label and music on the way, let’s hope Mariah gets the help she needs to revamp her image, make the most of her voice as it is today and restore a legacy that continues to be marred by mishaps like the one below.
