New Song: Mariah Carey – ‘Why You Mad? (Infinity Remix) (ft. Justin Bieber, French Montana, & T.I )

Published: Saturday 8th Aug 2015 by Sam

As reported earlier this week, Mariah Carey is still trying to revive recent single ‘Infinity’ and has called on Justin Bieber, French Montana, and T.I. to help administer some much needed CPR.

No word yet on what Mimi plans to do with the track, but what is certain is that it’s now arrived via TMZ.

Titled ‘Why You Mad? (Infinity Remix)’, the revised version of the track features verses from all of the aforementioned and new vocals from Mariah too. The production has received an update via Eric Hudson as well.

Take a listen below…

A mucky, muddled, mess.

To answer the question asked by the song’s title, we’re jarred because this all feels so overwhelmingly unnecessary. Justin Bieber sounds especially terrible; his nasality was nauseating.

Why can’t Mariah just bask in the amazingness that was this week’s Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony and, more broadly, the success of her Vegas stint? Then serve us new material the “proper” way when the time is right?

She’s one of the few names whose star is so big that she can afford to take a moment away from the active music scene to evaluate, recalibrate, and rejuvenate – while building buzz for a comeback.

Again, unnecessary.

    What da f** is this clown ass shíťt Mariah? A big fat mess.

    • Keri Qween August 8, 2015

      Kii hey sis

  6. Rosie August 8, 2015

    Haha what is this mess. Not French Montana and T.I. in 2015. Not to mention this song is old as hell at this point.
    (btw buy the new muddy trap bop “High By The Beach” this Monday!)

  7. Dirty-Muff August 8, 2015

    Agreed, completely unnecessary and far too late to drum up any interest in the single.
    Think Mariah just needs a completely new direction, everything about her from her music to her look just feels… Out of date?

    Still love Mariah (mainly because of her amazing back-catalogue) but if she she wants to remain relevant then a new formula needs to be found.

    I’d love her to work with some UK-based producers and come up with something out of the usual comfort zone.

  8. Lea August 8, 2015

    @Sam, the sooner you learn that regardless of any decision that this woman makes, you cant and will never be able to f*** with her the better off you will be. Call her when your worth over 400mill…☺

  9. Royalkev August 8, 2015

    This just feels like way too much being done! This song should have been left alone. I really think (in Mariah’s case) that less is more. Being simple would really do her some good.

  10. Lea August 8, 2015

    I like Keri Hilson, but her fans need to sit the hell down, she’s beyond lazy and scared!

    • Arianator Barb August 8, 2015

  12. Shady81 August 8, 2015

    SMH Mariah Mariah Mariah back to the drawing board cause this aint gone work.

  13. #1lamb August 8, 2015

    Where I agree the song is #blah
    I still Kiiiii at Sam and them melt downs/write up’s. It’s no where near her best remix but it’s not her worst.

  14. Mark111 August 8, 2015

    Hahahahahahahahaha, have I not been saying that this old woman thinks she’s 20 and still clinging to young rappers and now teen stars. This is the result of 3 decades of studio magic, effing your CEO, and being lucky that JD was hot in 2005. I see why the Lame’s lives in the early 90s, because that was her peak. But even then she was clinging to the latest rapper, barley giving a vocal performance and was acting like a child. I glad the ladies and gentlemen I’m a fan of aren’t desperate.

    • OMG Logic!!! August 8, 2015

      Who are you a fan of then? Because Rihanna had to be desperate to suck the Camel’s di ck. God knows she wasn’t a record deal otherwise.

    • TRUTH SERUM August 8, 2015

      Ouch! Tell us how you really feel. Lmao.. Lol

      • OMG Logic!!! August 8, 2015

        She should feel like the dumb b1tch she is. Coming for pinnacle of talent when she stans for the opposite.

  15. #1lamb August 8, 2015

    Mariah’s last greatest remix was My All/Stay Awhile. Mariah’s last greatest song was Make it Look Good. So, she is still able to produce good music. This just is not the deal.

  16. Suicide Blonde August 8, 2015

    I haven’t heard a Justin Bieber song in my life and i don’t plan to do so just because this is a Mariah song, he’s featured in it, too much for me.

  17. OMG Logic!!! August 8, 2015

    TGJ forever trying it with Mariah. You all know DAMN well she releases remixes all the time. Make It Happen and Anytime You Need a Friend weren’t hits either and she still made remixes for them because that’s what she ALWAYS does.

    Until The Goat, The Bloated Lipped Alcoholic, and a bunch of other random women (what’s a Keri Hilson?) attain a fraction of Mariah’s success, I’ll need all you 3rd rate stans to stay in your lanes.

  18. Barb-wire August 8, 2015

    Gurl bye Mimi kii, I love you but this is crap.

  19. shakira stan August 8, 2015

    Damn! Just when I thought Rita ora’s song was the worst thing I’ve heard all week….the pig delivered in a muddy way.

  20. Gee August 8, 2015

    I will start by say I love some MC but this right here is not what we need right now. After a successful Vegas stint and finally receiving her star, we need a concept album with clear direction proper promotion and all ducks in a row. I don’t mind a remix as long as it’s done right now back to the drawing board MC and give the world the quality music you are capable of.

  21. JOHNVIDAL August 8, 2015

    Why is Sam reviewing this as if it were a real effort or a leading single from a new album? So damn pressed LOL
    Darling let it go, Janet´s comeback has pretty much had the same impact on the Hot 100 as this irrelevant and only made for promoting Vegas song called “Infinity”. Just let it go and acknowledge real legends.
    (no shade to Janet, but the comparison between what he writes about Mariah and Janet is so obviously delusional and unfair that it needs to be said).

    • Shady81 August 8, 2015

      At least when Janet revealed the actual version of No Sleeep with J.Cole his verse actually gelled with the song and it was just the two of them with the appropriate sound and it worked. Do you realize that No Sleeep is an R&B song not a Pop song right and it’s doing great on the R&B section of Billboard and doing well in the section of R&B/Hip-Hop so you can save that, and for a woman who didn’t promote it by performing it live it’s doing pretty damn well if you ask me.

      • Rosie August 8, 2015

        Exactly. Janet’s song obviously was made for Urban AC, where it is doing very well. That’s a good sign because older R&B fans are extremely loyal from what I’ve seen (see: Tyrese’s 1st and 2nd week sales) and Janet is a legend.

      • OMG Logic!!! August 8, 2015

        What I realize is that Janet’s single was meant to be a comeback song. Instead it’s made less impact than a leave falling on water. Mariah’s single was something she threw together for Vegas and for compilation album. It doesn’t matter that she “promoted” it by singing at her Vegas gigs. It wasn’t meant to be a hit like Janet’s. And chile please gtfo here bringing R&B radio like it matters all of a sudden. Make an impact on the Hot 100 or flop.

      • OMG Logic!!! August 8, 2015

        **leaf**

      • Rosie August 8, 2015

        OK but what kinda self-drag at you dragging Janet but then defending Mariah’s flop which was promoted on a major awards show. Didn’t No Sleeep already outpeak it? And I’m not even trying to drag Mariah rn.
        Janet’s album will probably sell just fine for an R&B album in 2015, even if it does 350-400K total that’s still good for this year when what, maybe 10 albums went gold total and NONE went platinum except for Drake this week.

      • JOHNVIDAL August 8, 2015

        Oh yes because Mariah Carey has been releasing pop music for the last 15 years, right? 🙂

      • JOHNVIDAL August 8, 2015

        @Rosie
        What are you talking about? Sam is the one being biased. I only reply to his absurd attacks on real legends.
        And about the Janet thing: please, it SHOULD outpeak Infinity. Are you even serious? It´s a lead single for a new album and anticipation should be huge since Mariah or Madonna have been releasing non stop while Janet has not.

      • Rosie August 8, 2015

        You’re saying this like Janet’s career hasn’t been in shambles since 2004 lmao. Weren’t people expecting a mainstream pop/rhythmic “~b0p!!1~” from Janet yet she released a completely inaccessible to pop radio-R&B midtempo which has literally only gone for adds on Urban & Urban AC, where it’s doing just fine. What’s so hard to understand? That same crowd is the few that will loyally still buy albums now; didn’t Tyrese sell like 80K and debut at #1? That’s what sticking to what you know and not releasing 3829 “buzz singles” trying to see which one sticks as a top 40 hit will do for you.

    • Mark111 /.\ August 8, 2015

      You’re delusional. I think you live in the past and only see your fave’s best work, rather it’s Deady Gaga or MooRiah. There latest is wack and a cry for help, deal with it.

      • OMG Logic!!! August 8, 2015

        At least Mariah has work to speak of. If only the same could be said of Rihanna, unless you count working out deals with her coke dealer as “good work.”

      • Mark111 /.\ August 8, 2015

        Run away troll. I don’t have time, Rihanna is queen.

      • JOHNVIDAL August 8, 2015

        @Mark
        Ridiculous comment, as usual. You stan for Rihanna. Both Janet and Mariah slay such basicness. There´s not even room to discuss her.
        PS: So Mariah is a thing from the past but Janet isn´t? lmao what kind of logic is that?

    • SCALPING THOTS August 8, 2015

      HUUUUNTY. U WANT TO TALK ABOUT IRRELEVANCE.
      YOU’RE MINE ETERNAL #88
      INFINITY #82
      ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS WITH JUSTIN BIEBER #86

      MARIAH WAS POPPIN FOR A DECADE &A HALF. SHE’S DONE NOTHING THIS DECADE & SHE CAME OUT LAST OUT OF ALL THE LEGENDS.

      • OMG Logic!!! August 8, 2015

        Remind me, again, how many copies Glitter, Charmbracelet, and E=MC2 sold? And please, ignore Emancipation and the 14 weeks she spent at #1. Only Eminem had the amount of success she had in the 2000s.

        Keep trying b1tch.

      • SCALPING THOTS August 8, 2015

        @OMG

        BUT SIS THAT EMANCIPATION ALBUM WAS ONE ERA IN THE 00’S. MARIAH BARELY DID SOMETHING NOTEWORTHY BEFORE THE 00’S WAS OVER. WHY DO U WANT TO BE REMINDED OF THOSE GOD AWFUL ALBUM SALES CHILE? U LAMBS USUALLY WANT TO BRING UP THE GOOD & SWEEP THE BAD UNDER THE RUG, WHY CHANGE THINGS NOW? GLITTER TOOK ABOUT A DECADE TO SELL NEAR PLATINUM. ANYTHING RELEASED BEFORE 2005 SHOULDN’T HAVE BEEN STRUGGLING TO SELL DOUBLE PLATINUM. AIN’T MIMI SUPPOSED TO BE THE 200 MILLION LEGEND? AND GURL, MARIAH DID NOT HAVE THE SAME SUCCESS EMINEM HAD IN THE 2000’S. SLIM SHADY DID 18 MILLION, MARSHALL MATHERS DID OVER 30 MILLION, EMINEM SHOW DID OVER 25 MILLION, ENCORE DID 21 MILLION INTERNATIONALLY. MARIAH DIDN’T EVEN SEE THE SUCCESS BRITNEY, BEYONCE, ALICIA OR PINK DID IN THE 00’S. WHAT LEGENDARY POP B**** STRUGGLES SO MUCH IN DECADE #2? YA’LL SOME PRETENDING ASS LAMBS!

      • JOHNVIDAL August 8, 2015

        @scalping
        What does that have to do with my comment??? LOL
        #Beautiful was top15 in the 10s btw. She still slayed a bit in the 00s (with a bigger album than any of your faves in that decade, definitely bigger than any album from Janet or Beyonce in that decade, not to mention Rihanna and the rest, who were supposed to be at their peaks) and obviously the 90s slayage is something none of these b****** have seen. What were you talking about again? 🙂

      • SCALPING THOTS August 8, 2015

        @JOHNVIDAL

        WHIP OUT UR READING GLASSES SIR, I KNOW U GET MIGRAINES WITHOUT THEM. MY COMMENT WAS FOR OMG FIRST OF ALL, THAT’S WHY I ADDED THAT PART ABOUT IRRELEVANCE. THAT BEAUTIFUL TOP 20 CHARTING WOULDN’T HAVE HAPPENED WITH OUT MIGUEL. ALL MARIAH’S SINGLES HAVE BEEN TANKING BEFORE AND AFTER BEAUTIFUL SINCE 2009. AND EMANCIPATION’S SUCCESS WAS SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN, SHE WAS ONLY 15 YEARS INTO HER CAREER. THE AVERAGE ARTIST MAY NOT LAST THAT LONG, BUT MOST MAJOR DIVAS ON A CERTAIN LEVEL ARE SUPPOSED TO. IT’S YA’LL LAMBS THAT ACT AS IF MARIAH DID SOMETHING NO WOMAN WALKING THE EARTH EVER HAS. MY POINT WAS THAT MARIAH DIDN’T OUTDO A LOT OF WOMEN IN THE 00’S, BUT YA’LL DELUSIONAL STANS WANNA BELIEVE HER SUCCESS EQUALED EM’S.

    • Jim August 12, 2015

      Charts aside, Janet’s song is decent, and this Mariah remix sucks. Sorry, but try to be real here.

  24. Musika August 8, 2015

    TGJ plz report on 5H’s new song “I’m In Love With A Monster”. It already leaked & it’s a killer!! All dem girls got lines too ~!

  25. Mark111 /.\ August 8, 2015

    No Sleeep is killing these old hags. The song re-charted higher than Moo Moo and Granny’s singles this and last year. Just wait for the dance single.

    • OMG Logic!!! August 8, 2015

      Minnie Mouse Jackson is older than Mariah… She’s also been a has been since 2001… Except unlike Mariah, she didn’t have a comeback just flops.

      • Mark111 /.\ August 8, 2015

        Janet is a pop legend and still respected. Moo Moo is a joke that still thinks she’s 20. Even thinking her and Nick Jr was going to work out, as if her sagging face and @ss was going to hold up. lol #NoSleep

    • JOHNVIDAL August 8, 2015

      Hun, for a real comeback Janet should be getting more success. Madonna and Mariah have still had some important entries on the charts these last years.

  26. Shady81 August 8, 2015

    Mariah had great remixes/Songs with Rappers in the past here’s the list.
    Always be my baby F. Da Brat & Xscape
    Fantasy F. ODB
    Honey F. Puff Daddy & The Lox
    Heartbreaker F. Jay-Z
    Breakdown F. Bone Thugs N Harmony
    Busta Rhymes I know what you want with Mariah and Rah Digga
    Sweetheart F. Jermaine Dupri
    And that song she had with Cam’ron. But I just feel like she needs to reevaluate her craft I really like the song Thirsty with Rich Homie Quan why didn’t she come out with that if she was gonna come out with something that involves a Rapper or come out with a whole new song that no ones heard before just stating my opinion because French and his auto tune is a no Justin Bieber sounding lost is a no and T.I no No, No, No, No, No she really needs to go back to the drawing board to what made her great in the first place.

    • Mark111 /.\ August 8, 2015

      That’s the point, she clings to the latest, hottest rapper. At least her older remixes were produced well, this is almost 2004 Sprint cell phone call in quality (or lack there of).

  27. Mark111 /.\ August 8, 2015

    “Mariah’s single was something she threw together for Vegas and for compilation album.”
    .
    The excuses these stans makes. That’s as bad as “she didn’t promote it”.

    • Rosie August 8, 2015

      And the kii is that Infinity WAS promoted on the Billboard Music Awards, which wasn’t even a ratings flop this year.
      “No promo” sometimes is a valid excuse but this isn’t it.

      • OMG Logic!!! August 8, 2015

        Why would we be pressed over a crack head, a walking corpse, Selena Quintanilla’s lesser, a glorified stripper, or a walking Pillsbury Doughgirl (made out of cellulite)?

      • SCALPING THOTS August 8, 2015

        WELL THEIR STANS SURE AIN’T PRESSED OVER AN ALCOHOLIC, INFLATED PIGLET, HIGH NOTE COPY & PASTING THOT, WHO JUMPED STARTED A CAREER WITH A SENIOR SENIOR CITIZEN, THAT’S GOING THRU A MID LIFE CRISIS.

  29. SCALPING THOTS August 8, 2015

    SHE IS SO SAD & THIS DECLINE IS SO REAL. HER LAMBS ARE ALWAYS TALKING ABOUT REAL MUSIC AND TODAY’S MUSIC BEING SO BAD, BUT MARIAH’S THE ONLY SINGER FROM WAY BACK SOUNDING LIKE SHE’S TRYNA KEEP UP WITH TODAY’S MUSIC. HOW LONG IS SHE GOING TO KEEP LOOKING FOR STREET CRED? SHE’S BEEN THIRSTY FOR THAT EVER SINCE THE DAYS SHE WAS LETTING PUFFY HIT IT &ALL THE OTHER RAPPERS. THIS IS WHY SHE’S BEEN HIT OR MISS WITH HER MUSIC SINCE THE LATE 90’S, SHE HAS TOO MANY PERSONAS. TOMMY MADE U WHITNEY #2, THEN MARIAH WANTED TO BE S*** LIKE JANET & KEEP UP WITH JLO, BUT BE DOWN LIKE MARYJ. MARIAH GURL, WHAT ARE U DOING. SHE SHOULD HAVE JUST BEEN A SONGWRITER, THIS B**** IS SO LOST AS AN ARTIST. NOW THAT SHE DON’T HAVE NICK, SHE MUST BE HAVING ANOTHER BREAKDOWN. NOW THAT WE ALL KNOW SHE WAS AN ALCOHOLIC, SHE MUST HATE TRYNA MAKE A COMEBACK SOBER THESE DAYS.

  31. Spunkypoop August 8, 2015

    Awww Mariah wants an R&B hit too like Janet…but sorry MC this is weak and uneccessary the song bombed all across the boards. I LOVE Mariah but she needs to do what Janet is doing..playing her own game. Release a light buzz single which is an R&B hit single and song by the way haters. She didn’t come back POP its too risky and not her core audience anymore..but please trust and believe since she got your attention..Mother will deliver her POP hits from her new album. Be patient as she heating up the oven..to burn this b**** down!! Mariah pay attention love.

    • Sandra August 8, 2015

      Ehm… Janet’s song is a flop and didn’t even crack the top 60 on the main chart.

    • OMG Logic!!! August 8, 2015

      Quite the opposite. She’s the only one doing the exact same thing she’s always done. Caps lock doesn’t make you any less wrong honey.

  32. Spunkypoop August 8, 2015

    Just proves how Janet really is in her own lane. Baking and cooking in her own kitchen with her very own original recipes. MOTHER will deliver TRUST and believe. Stay tuned…No Sleeep is just a hi I’m back single…. I can’t wait to see all the haters turn to mud when she comes back 4 real.

    • Mark111 /.\ August 8, 2015

      How can you come for Janet when you stan for Ciara.

      • Molly August 8, 2015

        Ciara and Mariah are much better than Janets tired overrated ass.

      • Shady81 August 8, 2015

        Really @Molly how is Janet overrated when no one hasn’t seen her in a long while. But you have Ciara who’s been seen for entire year and a half or two and all she has done nothing but put out her album that featured Body Party, dated Future, meet his babies mama’s and took photos with them, got engaged bragged about that, got pregnant and became baby mama #5 with Future’s child, got dumped, went on a cry me a river I’m baby mama number 5 promo tour for I Bet Future’s gone miss this while I come out with my Jackie album and try to promote but only sell 24k which is considered cardboard in the music industry so instead I run into Russell Wilson use him for upgrade stats And photo ops but still flop like hell then if that don’t work use baby Future to create this make believe family while making Future jealous but get Baby daddy issues instead. Now so far if that don’t sum up what Ciara has done for the two plus years she’s been out I don’t know what does and you have the nerve to call Janet overrated look up the definition and Ciara my dear is one of the prime examples all Janet did was announce that she was back, and got nation wide buzz,announced an American leg tour outsold that, put out a single, recieved a BET that they made in her honor, release the actual version of her new single with J. Cole added to it, and dominate the Adult Contemporary and R&B charts with that and she did it without a lick of promo now how in the hell is she overrated when you’ve barely even seen her bye Felicia you’ve just been dismissed.

    • SCALPING THOTS August 8, 2015

      KII. BUT WHERE’S DANCING WHILE YA’LL PAYING DUST ON THE CHARTS??

    • Lmfao_Hoe August 8, 2015

      Janet No Sleeep is shown on the R&B charts but DLWML is no where to be found, No Sleeep video came out normally yet DLWML premiered on Time Square to millions of people. You say Janet is tired yet she has charted higher than Ciara n Mariah with no performances, and tour selling crazy. Overrated? Hum no honey you mistaking her for Madonna on that tip. ???????? Top of all wasn’t Cici paying tribute to Janet two months (BET Award)

    • Rihnavy on your you know what November 16, 2015

      F*** you

  34. Lmfao_Hoe August 8, 2015

    Lord have mercy what is this b*******. Mariah gurl you better get your s*** together and I mean musically. I’m tired of theses rap features (that are clearly unneeded) why not singers? – Sam Smith, Drake, The Weeknd, Bruno Mars, Frank Ocean ect singers who can actually sing and aim at quality. I see ppl coming for Janet, yet she’s doing better than the attempts done by Mariah. No sleeep is a great r&b quiet Storm track, the remix with J Cole was great and actually made the song more listenable to the younger fans. Just like Janet is back with Terry n Jimmy, Mariah should consider hitting up Walter for another classical album.

    • eric August 8, 2015

      @Lmfao_Hoe. A big “yes” to that idea!!

    • Mariah4Life August 8, 2015

      Save the poor attempts to spin because the truth is that Janet working with J. Cole is no different than Mariah working with Bieber and French Montana. The solo version of No Sleep had already tanked and J. Cole’s version only added slightly more buzz to it and it will most likely dry up next week. Don’t get it twisted, No Sleep still flopped.

      • Lmfao_Hoe August 8, 2015

        Girl bye, it wasn’t too late for Janet to at least make a remix. How long has Infinity been out? And even with this remix now why JB and French Montana of all ppl? Desperate much. He’ll the song did good on its own, and like someone said before Mariah’s greatest remixes are from the 90s thanks to David Morales. Mariah is one of my fav and i love her but I refuse to be a fool for her.

      • Shady81 August 8, 2015

        And Janet’s No Sleeep is the actual version it was confirmed by Jimmy Jam himself so save it @Mariah4life.

    Ms. Mimi girl what is this????

  36. eric August 8, 2015

    Mariah will always be a favorite of mine, but this remix is a perfect example of why fans should stop defending Mariah’s artistic choices as though she can do no wrong. There is no reason whatsoever to make a track like this unless there is something that Mariah is trying desperately to prove. She’s making too many decisions for herself and they aren’t very good ones; it’s doing more harm than good. I wish she would just stop if she’s not willing to give up more control.

  37. Rosie August 8, 2015

    Since y’all keep bringing up Janet: her single is doing exactly what it was supposed to. R&B fans are extremely loyal to those who stick to the genre and don’t try to appeal to fickle pop fans who drop artists after one single.
    Even if her album sells 80K first week that is enough for a #1 debut in 2015 where only one album has went platinum so far (Drake’s “mixtape” just did it yesterday, was at 998K last week) and maybe five albums MAX will go platinum in 2015 (Meghan Trainor is at 800K+, Luke Bryan will probably do it, Dr. Dre if his album isn’t frontloaded).

    • Rosie August 8, 2015

      + I just looked up sales and only 3 studio albums released in 2015 went gold (Fifty Shades Of Grey is a soundtrack). That’s really tragic. Like I mentioned earlier sales are dead. Spotify keeps getting records broken every day, it’s takeover is almost complete in the U.S. just like how it single-handedly destroyed single sales in Europe (basically why 1989’s singles after Blank Space flopped there).

    • JOHNVIDAL August 8, 2015

      Why are you making these excuses?
      Since when has Mariah been doing pop but not Janet in the last 15 years?????? If that´s good for Janet, then Mariah´s numbers lat year for her last album were ok too. It was an R&B album hun 🙂

      • Rosie August 8, 2015

        Where’s the excuse? I’m literally only posting facts, especially in the second comment that two of y’all pressed asses voted down. Me, I Am Mariah didn’t even sell 200K worldwide. I don’t even stan Janet, I’m just confused as to why Mariah stans are calling No Sleeep a flop when it outpeaked Infinity first week and STOMPED all over it on radio.

      • JOHNVIDAL August 9, 2015

        Rosie
        Again: how the hell can you compare No Sleep to Infinity?????
        No Sleep is the comeback single for an anticipated comeback. Infinity was there just to make people talk about Vegas. If you want to compare, compare #beautiful and No Sleep 🙂
        Those are the excuses I was talking about. The fact that No Sleep is barely more successful than something like Infinity is the real kiii.
        And since when you defend Janet like that?

  38. Mariah4Life August 8, 2015

    Why are the stans of that plastic hasbeen Janet “You only know my name cuz MJ was my bro” Jackson in here running their mouth like that old b**** didnt just run to J. Cole to revive her DEAD attempt at a comeback song and all he could do was peak at #60 something. The song is STILL a major flop and it will once again drop off the charts next week. Mariah has been out for noticeably less time than JJ and has sold like 200 more records than her and hasn’t gone nearly 15 yrs without a hit. So fall back and know your place Jan stans because you only embarrass yourselves. Once again NO SLEEP remains a flop. No one cares about Urban AC.

    • OMG Logic!!! August 8, 2015

    • SCALPING THOTS August 8, 2015

      IF MARIAH DIDN’T PACK IN 80 ALBUMS BETWEEN 90 – 99, SHE WOULDN’T HAVE ANY EDGE OVER ANY OF HER PEERS. ALL OF THEM HAVE BEEN HUGELY POPULAR AT THEIR PEAK AND COULD HAVE ACCOMPLISHED DOING THIS BY ACCUMULATION. MARIAH DRIED UP IN THE LATE 90’S, NEEDED A COMEBACK BY 2005 & FLOPPED THE REST OF HER 2ND DECADE. IF SHE SPACED OUT THOSE ALBUMS U KNOW DAMN WELL SHE WOULDN’T HAVE SEEN SOME OF THOSE NUMBERS. SHE DID THE SAME THING BRITNEY DID FROM 99-01, WHICH IS DROP BACK TO BACK. BRITNEY GAINED 70 MILLION IN THOSE 3 YEARS & THEN SAW AVERAGE TO BASIC SALES. ONLY THING IS THAT BRITENY WAS 10X MORE INTERESTING THAN MARIAH AS AN ARTISTS.

    • Shady81 August 8, 2015

      STFU @Mariah4life stay mad and anyways I wish people stop saying Michael made Janet’s career cause he didn’t if it wasn’t for there daddy Joesph Walter Jackson & Barry Gordy the Jackson 5 would’ve been s***, Michael would’ve been hell and if Janet didn’t team up with Norman Lear she would’ve been S*** either and if Suzanne Depasse didn’t introduce Joesph and the boys to Barry that family would still be in Gary Indiana in that little white house on the corner doing god knows what so shut up with Michael made Janet because weather you know it or not at one point in time somebody had to make Michael whom he was so there.

    • Rosie August 8, 2015

      Then maybe y’all SHOULD start caring about Urban/Urban AC since that’s the only radio chart Mariah will make in 2015 unless she gets her s*** together. AT LEAST make a E=MC2-quality album, which isn’t even her best but it takes a huge dumP on whatever she has been releasing since then.

  39. Always0609 August 8, 2015

    Okay, as a fan of Mariah’s, I will say that I am slightly embarrassed by this. Okay. Fine, I admit it. No need to pretend. I think that the whole thing is tacky and unnecessary. If we were to get a remix, I would have preferred a more Hi-NRG one with only her on the track.

    That being said, I am seriously getting my shits and giggles @ Janet’s stans rushing this comment section with their laughably nervy commentary. Seriously, what day is this? She comes back with some ultra boring, utterly forgettable, ironically titled snoozefest that hobbles on one foot to a sixty-something on the charts (thanks in part to its featuring a premiere hip hop star of the moment) and you think its time for balloons and sparklers. Has Janet’s career been in the doldrums for that long that you actually get a swelled head from this very mediocre performance? It’s very sad, actually. For the last 10+ years, Ms. Jackson has been carrying around a flashlight, looking high and low for some kind of opening that will allow her back into the world of music after she was unceremoniously escorted out as a result of her exposing herself on national television. She hasn’t been a force in music since ‘Who Wants to Be a Millionaire’ was all the rage. During this same time period, Mariah has sold 15-20 million albums and has had eight top 10/top 20 hits. In fact, didn’t Janet try to copy off Mariah with her album Discipline? Signing with the same label, working with the same producers. Only she didn’t quite get her own MIMI from that outing, did she? So you, my dears, are in no position to posture, giggle or even offer advice. You should be the most humble fan base around, actually. Because few one prominent pop stars have fallen off quite as hard as Ms. Jackson.

    But back to topic: as a Mariah fan, once more I will say that I’m not feeling this at all. But I am glad that she’s back in the studio again. We all know that when Mariah gets in front of a mic and behind a control board, it doesn’t just stop at one song. Looking forward to her first full length studio album with her brand new Sony contract. It’s undoubtedly in the works right now, while this unfortunate remix is served as merely something to snack on the interim.

    • Shady81 August 8, 2015

      One name @Always0609 Jermaine Dupri was her problem and Janet didn’t copy Mariah if that being said then you mightiest say Mariah copied Janet by getting signed st Virgin Records back in the late 90’s only to get force to leave because of her antics of a breakdown and get paid $125 million to do so.

  40. MUSICHEAD August 8, 2015

    The entire problem with the song in the first place was the hook and the production. That’s still the problem no matter how many rappers u throw on it.

  41. Stephy August 8, 2015

    Oooooh, uh uh this song is a big no for me. Like I said, I haven’t really LOVED nothing from her since 2005. But, E=MC2 & Angles were solid efforts. I didn’t like “Elusive Chanteuse” at all tho. And, Justina’s voice is so painful. Why is he famous again??? Anyways, better luck next time Mimi.

  42. Stephy August 8, 2015

    DAMN! So, many meltdowns on this post. Reminds me, of my older days on this blog. Anyways, I’ve just learned to except an artist/person as they are… You can’t really stress over “shoulda woulda coulda” or “If But When Where” etc…
    .
    .
    Mariah choose not to take care of her voice & purposely doesn’t want to do mature music. I think she kinda suffers from the Michael Jackson “Peter Pan Syndrome”. The reason as to why she’s probably shying away from Walter A… Is due to her voice no longer being able to carry those power ballads anymore. But, I maybe wrong. This new “song” is senseless nonsense tho. I’ve learn to except Mariah for who she is. Just let it be…
    .
    .
    Just like with Michael Jackson. He was a child m*******, master manipulator & drug addict. That’s like the lowest of the lows. But, I’ve learned to separate the art from the person. And, with Whitney Houston. She choose crack/cocaine over her own God given talents & daughter. I think she was even smoking drugs with Bobbi K, and was using that boy Nick Gordon (and Ray J) as drug runners. It’s extremely sad, to see our favorite artist lose their way… But, that’s life. Nothing is perfect, and will NEVER be perfect. Mariah’s music is amazing. I don’t really care about her current stint right now. But, overall her catalog is one of the best. I don’t go a day without listening to something by her. “Anytime You Need A Friend” will always be my favorite song by her. That song just does something to my spirit. Anyways, BYE!

    • coolness August 8, 2015

      Love your honesty! It’s refreshing to see a fan accept their favs for their faults and not be delusional. I like Mariah too and while I don’t care for this song, I’m not going to discredit everything she’s achieved. Can’t Let Go is my ALL-TIME favourite song by her. Should’ve been #1 tbh.

  43. S4DE August 8, 2015

    We’ve been getting emancipation Mimi since 2005 and that’s the real problem. Despite what crazy stans say,every artist in the history of music has had a peak and a decline, it happens to the best of them.The big divas of the 40’s-90’s all prove this. Mariah is legend and has earned her respect but this remix is terrible as is majority of her post 2001 or 02 music minus TEOM. The same thing happened to Mary J,made her comback with an excellent album and has been following the same formula for the last 4 Albums. The End results for both have resulted in New career lows. Janet fans are delusional though. Janet is not a blueprint,the blueprint is Diana Ross, janet’s just a model version that could dance better,more of a footnote in the blueprint chapter, but not a whole chapter. While #63 on the hot100 is good for someone who hasn’t made an album in so long,it’s going to take more than that to get a gold album in this climate,you’d think after 3 flop albums,along with all those flop compilation albums in a row her fans would be humble by now,Janet’s technically has 6 flop albums and that’s not even counting the compilation albums. Humble yourselves,there plenty of people who have never been here for Janet and thats during her peak,had be hard watching all her contemporaries go diamond as she set on the sidelines and had to s** it up just stay relevant in the 90’s, reminds me of another artist out now…

    • Shady81 August 8, 2015

      What are you talking about Janet evolved with every album from Control to Velvet Rope she rarely used s** you mistaking Janet with Madonna who continuously used s**. So what in the hell are you talking about?

    • Shady81 August 8, 2015

      Oh and by the way Janet was the blue print just like her contemporaries before her so there try again @S4de

  44. coolness August 8, 2015

    I respect Mariah as a legend but no ma’am to this remix! It’s quite clear this is one of those collaborations that were simply put together for convenience and it shows in it’s horrible outcome. First of all, Justin is hands down one of THE BIGGEST frauds the music business has seen in the last 10 years. His vocal talent is non-existent and his tone is so wooden with no dimension or range. Nasality at it’s most nauseating. French and T.I need to go sit down somewhere in 2K15. So you have Mariah, whose voice is way past it’s rich-sounding glory days, French Montana’s lazy a** delivery, Bieber’s dry voice and T.I’s presence on this overcrowded track. MESS!

  45. Tron August 8, 2015

    Janet fans DO need to humble themselves. No one who stans for someone who has had as long a dry spell as hers should be cocky enough to use her name to slight another singer whose decline hasn’t been as long or as steep. Mariah is doing poorly right now, but overall she has been much more successful. Mariah eventually rebounded from Glitter, but Janet has yet to recover from the Superbowl.

  46. Theman August 8, 2015

    Lol it’s a damn remix. Mariah is phenomenal. And so is Janet. Sit down with the bull. Sam is such bitter A** hater. Notice the biasness between the two. He always writes reports when it comes to MC, but not for anyone else….

  47. Shady81 August 8, 2015

    First of all as A Janet stan I would be the one to say that I have not been a fan of her latest work from 2004-2008 in what I call the Jermaine Dupri years I even went as far as not buying one single album from those years I even got sick of hearing her most sexual songs like moist and some other dumb song she came out with on her Damita Jo album and I felt like oh lord here she come with this bull s*** again with this f*** me and f*** me good music and I said to myself she mightiest well be a damn p*** star since she liked to get f*** so much I was just not feeling none of those Albums all she was giving was I’m in love I’m in love and Love s** and I’m having a lot of it, I wanted to find a baseball bat, take a plane and fly to Atlanta, ring and knock the f*** out of her with that baseball bat and say “What the f*** is wrong with you! If you don’t give me greatness like you did Control thru Velvet Rope I will throw the rest of the albums I brought of yours in the trash damn it get it together!”

    • Shady81 August 8, 2015

      Sorry sent comment to soon but hopefully she can get things right this time around now I’m not afraid to go in on my fave when there lack luster And for the ones going in and saying that Janet’s fans are delusional and are not humble well I can’t speak for other folks but I will speak for me when Janet wasn’t at her best I wasn’t afraid to voice my true feelings on how I disliked something of her’s I don’t kiss no celebrities ass I just add a little extra by buying your albums and going to you tours but that doesn’t mean I’m apart of it but as a fan I expect greatness just like other fans expect from there faves but she’s winning me over with her new song and I like it. And when someone said she won’t recover from the superbowel fiasco well she’s proven time and time again when you try to knock a strong black woman down she and only she can be the one that knows how to get back up because if she let that fiasco beat her then she would’ve never been seen again.

  48. Gene August 8, 2015

    No, Mariah, No, you don’t have to do this, take a break and then come back with something great, you are tired and we can see it, we don’t want another breakdown from you, I am her biggest fan along with Janet and Whitney, but no, I just want her to just be happy and not keep up to stay relevant with the young generation. And Janet don’t give two f#cks about yall feelings, she is doing her and she don’t have to work a day in her life and if she is done with, why all the mainstream media covering her and giving her props for her song and selling out of her tour then.

  49. Breath another Koloz days August 9, 2015

    Nice remix song

  50. Theman August 9, 2015

    Doing a collabo isn’t new. This song doesn’t sound like anyone else. So who & what is she trying to keep up with? Fallback with the bs..

  51. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) August 9, 2015

    I don’t even get the comparisons between Infinity and No Sleep. Infinity is just a new track she released on her compilation album while Sleep is supposed to be a lead single for an album soon to be released by someone hasnt real eased in years. No sleep is a damn flop, accept it and move on.

    • JOHNVIDAL August 9, 2015

      Total truth.
      And it´s not even shade to Janet at all. She has an amazing career. But this is just our response to such ridiculous posts and some of the comments. No comparison between No sleep and the “irrelevant” Infinity for a compilation from a woman who has released several more songs recently.

  52. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) August 9, 2015

    And I don’t even wanna start on Rosie because I don’t understand how you can stan for Lana and have the nerve to talk about Legends like Mariah and Janet. Let’s see where Lana stands 20+ years from now.

  53. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) August 9, 2015

    You people just do the absolute most when it comes to Mariah. @JohnVidal is completely right about how biased these articles are. Sam makes it seem like Janet is slaying the music scene or making some type of major impact when this comeback has been tired af. Yall always doing these hectic write-ups on Mariah but when the other divas fail, the endless articles are absent. Mariah has been doing remixes forever. It’s clearly not meant to be some huge deal.

  54. TheElusiveLamb August 9, 2015

    It’s actually my least favorite MC remix she’s ever released, but with a little cleaning up and taking majority of the artists off the track, it could be a decent track.

  55. @JanetCIARA_ August 10, 2015

    MARIAH! Im not doing this with you again! REALLY GORL!???

  56. Jim August 12, 2015

    What is she thinking with this crap? Hot mess of a track. She needs to stop working with hip hop people, because they suck now. Its not like the 80s and 90s when hip hop was actually good. Ever since this chick divorced Tommy Mottola her music has gotten progressively worse. She needs to get back to basics, writing soulful ballads like she used to.
