    LOVE the song & love the video concept, but something about Mariah trying the sexy thing just doesn’t work for me. I’m not sure if it’s bc she’s so frilly & girly without the edge factor or what. Or maybe bc she’s been around so long and she’s legendary now so it’s awkward seeing her do what we’re used to seeing her younger counterparts like Beyoncé do. Idk. Anywho, still love the song & will be purchasing!

    I don’t think it’s about her longevity or age. Mariah can sing but she cannot dance. She moves awkwardly. Also, she tries REALLY hard to sell sexy and that just comes off wrong to some of us. It’s better when it seems to naturally ooze out of a person.

    Yes!! This must be it! Now that I think back on it, you’re right and she was never a dancer, even in her early years. Just sing, Mariah. Just sing. lol

    Love the song&vid, but Mariah LAWD!

    Trying too hard like she has something to prove rather than trying hard because she loves what she’s doing. So much talent – all that is not needed! The contrived vocals especially-she can do so much better effortlessly!

    Mariah is the poster child for “let your talent speak for itself”. If I just hear her, its all good. When I see her, I cringe. When you have to do ‘all this’, it comes off just like it appears – trying too damn hard. She has the pipes and shouldn’t have to prove that to anyone. The rest of her stuff appears desperate.

    Note to Mariah: True Diva’s don’t try to prove it or shove it down everyone’s throat – they just are a class act.

    Wow, Mariah is trying way too hard! First of all, she looks great, but she is only a little younger than my wife. There comes a time when a person needs to project sexiness in a more subtle way. She needs to leave poking out the breasts and butt to Rhianna or even younger women.

    I always get the idea that Mariah was repressed when she was married to her much older and white first husband. Once she divorced him, she dropped her pants and popped her top, and she has projecting “hotness” ever since.

    Mariah Carey reminds me of Whitney Houston in that both started out with clean cut images, but over time, the real person came out. I believe the real Mariah is who we see in these videos. She is an exhibitionist and a bit of a “hoochie” (if any one uses that term anymore.)

    I don’t think she is tasteful, but I sure believe she is having fun!

    I really like the song! Dope collaboration, but then again, Miguel rarely ever disappoints me, so I should’ve expected it. Honestly, the song is cute enough for almost any female voice on this song, but Mariah did a pretty good job.

    Many of you think she tried too hard in the video. I honestly didn’t mind her. That’s how she’s been for years now, so I’m used to it. Didn’t really faze me.
