But is it her best? Not exactly. After all, Carey has 18 No. It was actually the sound of the 20th Century Mariah Bubble bursting. Maybe the biggest hit ever to fret about sex tapes being put on YouTube while also offering stage directions.
What saves this average song is the way Mariah delivers a Chaka Khan-esque breakdown to shake things up. The midtempo sweetness of the love song is a bit on the bland side, but she saves it by starting to stretch the constraints of being Pop Mariah. After becoming known for her ballad-heavy debut, this showed that Mariah could sorta get down. And of course the dog-whistle scream is in full effect. As dramatic a pop debut as any in music history, young Mariah proved immediately that she had the vocal power to take on all comers.
The upbeat holiday classic modernizes the girl-group carols carefully crafted by Phil Spector and turns it into a dramatic good time. The most traditional uplifting pop ballad in her entire catalog is also the one that feels the most timeless. The heart-wrenching ballad with Boyz II Men is the pinnacle of Pop Mariah, where melisma adorns nearly every note to wring out every bit of emotion from the tribute to so many friends we lost along the way-eee.
This carefree midtempo ballad showed how much fun Mariah could have when she felt like it. This ballad takes the best of Hip-Hop Mariah and marries it with Antonio Valdetaro & Grupo - Leticia best of Pop Mariah to create a style that really is all her own.
