Aren't those all people who worked on Alicia's latest album (minus Stevie and Diane)?
I would love for Mariah to work with:
I think they are writers/producers who could write & produce absolutely gorgeous material for Mariah in the Pop/R&B Adult Contemporary cross-over vein! I know it likely wont happen... But.. *smiles* There is hope!
Shea Taylor, Krucial Keys, Diane Warren, & Stevie Wonder did NOT work on Alicia's latest album.
1) I named Alicia because from an R&B standpoint...She is one I feel can actually understand Mariah's Voice... Picture Mariah singing (Try Sleeping With A Broken Heart, Un-Thinkable (I'm Ready), That's How Strong My love Is, Not Even The King, When It's All Over etc)
2) I named Baby Face because he has been chasing that 90's Adult Contemporary Sound lately (Hear Beyonce's "Broken Hearted Girl" & "Best Thing I Never Had"....Also Alicia's "Thats When I Knew"). If there is ONE Vocalist that Understand & can deliver a 90's AC Ballads it's Mariah!
3) I named Emeli Sande because she is one hell of a songwriter! I think Lyrically (on an inspirational level) Which is what Mariah seems to be going after... Mariah & Emeli could write one hell of a record together! (See the Lyrical Content of Alicia's "Brand New Me" & "Not Even The King"). ALSO Get into her album "Our Version of Events"... Track #2 "My Kind of Love" I would LOOOVE Mariah to do something like this!
4) Jeff Bhasker is one of the HOTTEST Producers in the game today. From Fun's "We Are Young" to Alicia's "Try Sleeping With A Broken Heart" & "Girl on Fire" to Beyonce's "I Care". I would love a stadium (empowerment) styled ballad like one of these with Mariah's unique range over radio today! I think he an Mariah could craft a Hit.
