Re: Am I the only 1 who thinks Obsessed is a big hit?

It's one of those songs that just sort of blends into the background. It's not really a standout track for me. It has a good beat, but I'm kind of disinterested in the whole "diss track" mentality, so that is a bit of a turn off for me. I'm hoping the rest of the album is more Mariah and less vocoder.

I do think that the hype surrounding the Eminem aspect of it might make it a much talked about song though, which might in turn get it some plays (and certainly a response). Even still, it's not like the lyrics are so hard hitting that anybody (outside of the hardcore Eminem fans) will get riled up and angry about it.

It's kind of interesting that both MC and Eminem are playing this publicity game though, Mariah releasing a song that amounts to a publicity stunt basically and meanwhile Eminem pulled the whole publicity stunt at the MTV Movie Awards with Bruno. Maybe they are in secretly working together, in efforts to run up each other's albums sales. It seems kinda funny that after like 7 years passing since their relationship was even an afterthought that they are STILL talking about each other.

Eminem's album did pretty awesome numbers for his first day sales, so maybe Mariah will see a similar bounce. I don't know if anyone on here is a fan of Eminem (I would doubt it of course) but my sister has is new CD and I can say without reservation that it's pretty terrible and formulaic, but then again I never have really liked all of his gross-you-out-torture-porn imagery.

Is "Obsessed" being played on Z100, guys?
Apparently they are promoting it:

BRING ON THE VIDEO MARIAH, DAMN CANT WAIT!!!!!

A MV will definitely help this song imo. I can't wait to see it, maybe they can continue the TMB video and have that dude come back as he's obsessed with Mariah image

Back to the song, 1stly, this song is Mariah's 1st real controversial song, controversy is great, whether it will have longevity, I don't think so and I think Mariah and her team know this and will follow this song up with the proper 'Mariah' first single.

'Obsessed' is just creating buzz for Mariah and her upcoming album. Remember how ILT was not classed as her 1st single image

Ppl dimissed TMB as her 1st single image

Btw... why are there comments on if TMB went to No1. this song can... TMB was a great song, did it's job and I still play it to death on my iTunes. I-H-A-T-E-U-T-M-B-H-A-T-E-R-S image

Re: Am I the only 1 who thinks Obsessed is a big hit?

There comes a point where it really becomes about your own opinion of the song, not about charts or how the rest of the internet feels. If you love the song, great! If it just doesn't work for you, oh well, next time. But I don't get this need to try and convince everyone else how great or how boring the song is, and then to further prove your point, trot out what the rest of the internet thinks or dare to try to predict airplay after one day. What is it with these diva boards and needing the approval of everyone else?

If the song does well, people want to brag. If the song tanks, people start throwing blame around.

Of course I want the song to do well. But it's because I really like the song, not because I want to prove a point.

I'm happy right here at FOMM. I don't need to run to other boards for approval.

Re: Am I the only 1 who thinks Obsessed is a big hit?

This is a monster radio has no choice but to eat this up even stations that hate her like Z-100. It's gonna be a huge hit in the clubs which is the most important thing these days. This is just what I wanted from MC but I wasn't expecting it. This is Mariah 2010 and I'm loving it she can do whatever is going on and yet make it a little different and very Mariah. If your looking for vocals then just know she gonna release a 2nd single with a real singing moment for u.

I am definitely hearing something different in the song that i didn't hear this afternoon...


I absolutely LOVE IT...
